E Book, Nook, Kindle Cover

I finished this cover today for a friend who admired one I made previously.  This is a dish towel, Martha Stewart I think.  The back pocket can hold a light attachment and the charger.  None of the covers at Barnes & Noble have a pocket to hold these items and they sell for $30.00.  Click on the photos for a better look.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is my favorite time of year.  I love all the fall colors, especially the leaves. Currently visiting in Bethesda, Maryland where all the leaves are red, orange and gold on the trees, slowly falling off.  There are heaps of leaves on the side of the roads where people have raked them.  You don't see that in Florida.  Hope everyone has a nice holiday and safe travels.

Little Wallets

This is a Keyka Lou wallet pattern.  I made one to see what it was like, then I cut out three more.  They go together so fast.  I might use my snap maker next instead of Velcro.  Last week she had her patterns on sale for $5.00 so I took advantage of this one and a market tote.  Her patterns are well written and easy to understand.

Pillow Pet

I taught this PJ Pillow Pet class at our local quilt shop here and this is the demo I made for it.  Love how she turned out.

Brown/Blue Damask Hero Bag

A customer request- she wanted a bag for her mother-in-law.  This bag measures 11" high x 12" wide and has a usable front pocket of 6" x 8". This was ordered through my Etsy site here. Take a look around.

Grommet / Eyelets

I call them grommets, the package says eyelets, but I am challenged to say the least in applying them to fabric.  The first couple I tried did not stay together, this is the third attempt and I can't get the tool out of the grommet.  Is it me or does anyone else have this problem?  I will be off later to buy more and check out alternatives. I am trying to design something and definitely need a grommet.  Just one is all I want and it doesn't look like it's going to be easy.
I bought a snap press as snaps never worked for me either.

Candle Mat Swap

This is the candle mat I made for my swap partner.  She wanted purple in it, but I could not work the color in with my charm square pack.  I did back the candle mat with purple and also made her this little snap bag filled with candy.  I also included a little Mary Englebret journal.  Hope she likes it!
