Atkinson Designs "Cash & Carry"

The small one is made using the cutting instructions listed on the pattern.  I then made the larger one by expanding the size.  I want to make another small one to hold my sunglasses.  They are so easy to make and Terry Atkinson does a wonderful job in writing directions.

Plenty of Pockets Tote

I love this bag. I am going to use in when I visit Las Vegas over the holidays.  A friend gave me the fat quarters, two sets of the same ones, so I was able to make this large bag with them.

Auto Trash Bags

I made these auto trash bags from military uniforms the sleeve and cuff.  They are BDU, ACU, and DCU uniform leftovers from the Hero Bags I made.  People seem to like them and I am recycling.

E-Reader /Kindle / Nook Cover

I made this "E-Reader" cover for my local quilt shop.  If there are enough people interested in a class, I will teach it next month.  This one is lined with a pretty pink.

BDU Hero Bag

Fished this customer bag.  She picked out the fabric for the outside and I was able to line it as well.  This is her uniform from 10 years ago when she was in the military.  I have been so busy with holiday sewing, it has been a hectic weekend.

Traveling Artist Roll-Up

I made these two (one is yellow lining and a little bigger) little artist roll-ups from this free pattern here. Very easy to make and great gifts for the little ones on your holiday list.  I just made a slight change in the seam at the top and made it a half-inch instead of 1/4.  I top stitched on the top side also to secure the opening closed.
