January Sewing

Just a quick update.  I am prepping some bags for little girls, and I have been busy with machine embroidery.  I finished January's Bag of The Month 2018.  The Podium by Chris W Designs.  It was easy, and it's a great bag.  I should have used foam, but I used fusible fleece.  Next time, I'll use foam.

 

 

 

I also made myself another hoodie from the So Sew Easy free pattern.

 

 

Got myself a new camera!  Super excited.

 

New BINGO Boards

New BINGO boards have been made.  They look impossible :(.  

Quilting BINGO Board.

Bags and Stuff BINGO Board

Clothing BINGO Board

 

I finished the Clover Convertible Bag from January 2017, so I can now begin the Podium.  Clover was simple enough until I got to the traincase and then all sorts of things went wrong :(.  I may make it again without the traincase OR I may make it with the traincase and the right type of zipper.  LOL.

 

 

 

June Bag of The Month

Back in the rut of not writing.  The Bag of The Month Club ended and started up again!  I am excited for July's release.  Here's my June bag by Chris W. Designs.  It was tough, but I made it through.  

 

The fabric is Millie's Closet by Riley Blake.

Simplicity S0902 and BOTM!

 

Normally, I don't make the big name brand patterns.  They make me nuts as the directions never seem to make sense to me.  I keep trying though.  This one caught my eye.  It is so pretty and so me.

 

BINGO in March

Still no BINGO for me.  Seriously.  I have been sewing alot (except for when I was sick), but I haven't been focused on the BINGO.  Oh well.  Also, I fell off the wagon bought a bunch of fabric.  Not cool.

 

Here's the Polaris Bag.  It's the March Bag of The Month.  Pattern by Sew Sweetness.

January Bag of The Month and BINGO cont.

Here's my January Bag of The Month.  I used some of my stash - the old Ragnar Mad Mod line - one of my favorites.

 

I now have 2 squares colored in on my Patterns BINGO card.

 

BINGO - Let's Go! Also, Pepernoot Part 4

I started my Patterns BINGO Card.  The squares that I am currently working on are outlined.  When that project is complete, the square will be filled in.  Even though I started the Pepernoot Hooded Coat last year, I decided I would still use it as a BINGO project.  The Betz White pattern I am working on is the Backgammon Bag, and it is the January Bag Of The Month.
