This is Dani Elms. She is a lovely young lady who was interested in joining our sewing class at my home on Monday evenings. She was interested in making Yoga Mat Totes as she has an opportunity to sell them at a friend's Yoga Studio. She used vintage red print fabric that belonged to her gramma. The fabric was from old flour sacks. It turned out really cute! Can't wait to see what else she comes up with!
This fabric which was purchased from Joann's was prequilted which made it a snap to sew into a very patriotic table runner for my daughter's home. This is actually my kitchen table that we have had since before our girls were born. I had to try it out to see how it looked. I hope she likes it!
Lizzy really needed a new sun dress and what couldn't be cuter than a halter on a baby! The Grace Apron Dress pattern is available on Etsy and I just happened to have the fabric from a fat quarter collection that was in need of some use. Pattern directions were easy to follow. I can't wait to see her in it!
My brother's shirts were the inspiration for a quilt for his daughter, Bailey. I got them all cut out and need to start assembling them soon. I am using a 9 block pattern. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

When it was time to punch the holes in Jack's Color Book, my daughter suggested we use her "Big Bite" tool. It worked out beautifully! The great thing about it was it would punch through the thick felt and also the bite is adjustable so you can go as deep as you need to.
