A Few More Small Projects...

Remember, back in April, when I was busy working on a bunch of small projects?  Well, I finally sent off a package to my sister with the items I made for her grandchildren.  I previously showed you the flannel pajama bottoms for Riley here and the skirt I made for Ashley here.  

Alyssa recently had her 11th birthday and loves the band, One Direction.  So, I made a few things for sister Joyce to give her.  A vinyl front zippered pouch, made with a pattern by Terry Atkinson.

A Pretty Little Tote, made using the tutorial found here (I resized it)... 
 

And, a kleenex cozy...
 


I heard that Alyssa is thrilled with her One Direction items, that  Riley wore his pajama bottoms to bed last night, and that Ashley is wearing her skirt to school today.  ~grin~

I also sent along some kleenex cozies for Joyce (I think that everyone in the state of Maryland will soon have one of these! ~grin~)...
 
 
In the meantime, I finished this pillow that I started the other day...

I need to organize my dresser and then I will be totally ready to spring clean and redo my bedroom!  That will happen this weekend.  I went through my closet yesterday...sorted through and removed 3 boxes, so that gives me a bit more room in there.  whew.  I had to order some fabric to make a new blanket for my bed for the brown dog to lay on.  He presently lays on the little quilt I made back here...but it won't match my summer bed.  So...a new one is in the works!

I am itching to start a new quilt...and to quilt another quilt out at The Electric Needle, where I am able to rent the longarm machine.  But, first things first.  Course, that doesn't mean that I cannot plan the quilt.  Right?  And, I need to make more skirts for Kaylynn and Ashley.  And, quilt more quilts.  And, I have an embroidery project to figure out colors for.  Never ends, does it?  That's a happy thought.

I hope your day is a good one for you.

Wonderful gifts for the kids and it is nice that you can get fabrics with things the kids love, to make them with.
