First Purse Ever

For my daughter's 15th birthday I wanted to make her a purse. She picked out the fabric, without realizing it. She commented on this fabric and the next day I bought it to use on her purse. I had just learned how to make an exploding pineapple block a few weeks ago and knew that had to be the front and back of this purse. I used a basic purse pattern to guide me, but this is pretty much all my idea. It has some problems, but I don't think my daughter will see them. I'll be giving it to her tonight. I hope she likes it!

Weekend Sewing Projects

I am having back problems right now, so I didn't get as much sewing done as I would have liked. But I think 2 complete projects isn't too bad for the weekend.

My youngest daughter has been wanting me to make her a skirt for awhile. I found the cutest school fabric and knew it had to be her skirt.

I made another pillowcase for a birthday present. Our friends have 7 kids, all adopted, all under the age of 12. Well I've been making them all a pillowcase on their birthday. So far, I've made 4, only 3 more to go!

Last night my quilt group met to learn the bargello heart quilt. My back was really hurting, so I didn't get much done. I didn't even get any pics. I'll post an updated pic of my project later.

This afternoon I've been blog hopping around the Fall into Fall Quilt Bloggers Giveaway. I haven't been to all 143 bloggers yet, but hopefully by Oct 15th I'll have visited them all.
