Have you heard about The Sew Off over at Naptime Crafters? Ive been follower of Amy’s for a long time now and was over the moon when she posted this little competition (though its not so little, ggg). Ive decided to have a go and if I get this blog post finished in time Ill be entered into my first “Sew Off” wheee! Yaa, I may have needed to start this a little sooner but then that is totally not my style…Im the one always running in at the final bell, LOL! My entry is my Dot Dot Dash Bag, Wallet and Notepad Holder. The bag has 7 zippers and the wallet has 2, yep, Im over my fear of zippers, LOL! Thank You Sara at Sew Sweetness for the Bag pattern and Ann at Jericho Designs for the ITH Wallet and Notepad Holder machine embroidery designs!
A Button made of Feathers was meant for this Fabric and I was thrilled to come across it one day just killing time at Joann’s. Do you do that, just hang out at Joann’s or is it just me, ggg.
This little wallet packs a big punch! 2 zipper pockets, 3 slip pockets and a magnetic snap closure! It was the March project for the Get Sew Inspired Yahoo Group project if you participated in the Fat Quarter Swap back in Oct/Nov of last year. Ann designs and with the help of her incredible assistant Dottie, puts up a monthly project. Its either an ITH (In The Hoop) project or machine embroidery designs with a sewing project. Its a wonderful group that Ann and Dottie have, with great members and awesome pojects, we all Get Sew Inspired by each others projects every month! After the month is over Ann posts the projects for sale on her website so even if you don’t have time to play along during the month you can still get the project 🙂
This was the Get Sew Inspired March 2013 project for everyone (even if you didn’t do the fat quarter swap). The Notepad Holder can be hung to keep your running list and then toss it in your bag to hold the notepad and it has 2 slip pockets for coupons and a pen too, woot, woot! Oh, see those pens in the pockets of this cute notepad? Those are Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Pens…you can use them on fabric and then just touch with your warm iron to make them disappear or you can just rub with the eraser tip but what fun is that, hehehe. Love These!!!
Ok, Im off to post my link…Im so nervous, wish me luck and watch for a few more posts to go up on this blog! Oh and if you want to see my old, really old, blog to check out some things Ive done over the years pop over to Vana63 and for more up to date sewing projects at my Facebook Page Vintage Barngirl. Id be very grateful if you’d give me a “like” there too, Big Hugs!
