This is actually the first zippy wallet I’ve made in months! I saw this photo and just loved the look of linen. It was a perfect match for the gift I was making. I didn’t realize how fun these are to make, I wish I could make a hundred!

Just had to share this precious picture of this quilt in use!
Looks like one happy camper. Such a cutie! Do you think this will make her addicted to fabric?
The green is Behr (from Home Depot): Grass Cloth
I had a request from my sister-in-law to make some potholders for her mother. I really liked the way they turned out. Her only request was to include her mother’s favorite color: yellow!
I definitely wanted to try out the ‘house’ type block as well as the wonky log cabin block. They were both really fun. I used Tallgrass Prairie Studio’s wonky block tutorial, just because I had no idea what I was doing. I mostly just looked at her pretty pictures.
And have you seen this quilt yet? It’s amazingly detailed, I can’t even imagine how long it must have taken to make.
Once again I had to try Handmade Mommy’s 15 minute jammie pant tutorial. Although I think they took me longer than 15 minutes, but not by too much, plus I serged the edges, so maybe that makes up for it.
I messed up Natalie’s first pair by making them too tight, so they only lasted a week or so before I noticed they were about to rip at the bum area. I used a different pair of pants to trace this time and I like them, they have a nice wide leg.
As for the side cargo type pockets, I used Made by Rae’s Pleated Pocket tutorial. I did scale down the size of the pocket by a few inches, but I loved making them. More pockets please! It was a great tutorial on a super stylish pocket that’ll go with all sorts of projects.
