Please note the signature at the bottom.  The first block took me about 2 hours to piece.  It's going much faster now that I understand it though.....  Hopefully this will turn out great and be loved!

A Birthday skirt for an adorable friend

A friend from the neighborhood is turning 5 and though we couldn't make it to her party, I wanted to give her something special to mark the big event!   She's almost done with princesses and skirts w/ pom poms on them, so I had to go all out!

There's even a little bit of glitter in the fabric, on the crowns and tiaras.  

I LOVE making stuff for little girls!!!

And it's reversible!!!  
Couldn't help myself!!!  The fabric is from Kokka, bought at Superbuzzy.  

And the look on her face when she opened it was priceless!


241 tote for ME ME ME!!!

Not sure what took me so long, but I finally bought the 241 tote pattern and made a new purse!  Love it!!!  I did only one slash pocket on the outside, and added a zippered pocket on the inside to keep things secure.

Love this bag!  Perfect way to use the Melody Miller fabric I've been too afraid to cut into, also!!!  I love the crazy colors and retro feel of the ladies, transistor radios, and view finder reels!

I'm ready to start a 2nd one!!!  Lots of ideas for different fabrics to use.
