Easy bag

I made a new bag!

Using up some old jeans and an old belt.
I lined it with some fun patchwork fabric!

I used 15 - 6” squares of denim.
One - 36” section of a belt
And about 1/2 yd fabric for the lining.

After decorating the squares with machine stitched lines....
I put it all together.
The steps are all on my youtube channel - HERE

This is the simplest kind of bag.
NO zippers 
NO pockets
NO fuss

Happy sewing!

Mostly PINK with some tans, browns....
And a tiny bit of blue.

Monday Making - cabin quilt

This is a country quilt. All those reds and greens and golds.
I’m calling it a cabin quilt...
and using flannel scraps makes it extra cozy!

This is the quilt BEFORE adding some borders
using the leftovers.
I had VERY little left and the quilt grew!
Win WIN!

Monday Making - baskets in the woods

It was a beautiful week in the mountains.
I was able to bind my little basket quilt.

With a dowel...
And is proudly hanging in my room.

Monday Making - growing a quilt

Quilts tend to grow.
After making a sisters choice block....
I thought about an alternate block.

After doing some puzzling...I came up with this simple block.

It adds a little interest to the first block.
Quilts grow and grow.

Maybe sashing is next??
