case in point

Greeting from sunny and hot Bonita Springs, Florida!

L'il E and I are chilling out at Nana and Papa's for the week (we're loving the heat!) but that doesn't mean I'm on vacation from blogging. I just had to bring my MacBook Air with me and that meant sewing a padded case for my prized possession. Fortunately I found a really simple pattern in one of my fave sewing books One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Projects"" and I had some leftover fabric (bonus!) from homemade Christmas gifts. It had to be unisex so the Hubs could carry it as well, so I went with a grey exterior and a bright pink interior for a pop of colour.

Check it out! Can you tell I'm proud of my creation?

what i made

Now that all of my homemade Christmas gifts have been unwrapped I can share all of my creations with you (my blood, sweat and tears actually).

As you know I had my very popular lavender eye pillows for sale on Etsy and sold several (even to complete strangers!). They're still on sale if your interested (double eyebrow) just send me an email or you can check them out on the fridaysoff Facebook page.

My nephew was the proud recipient of his very own LEGO sac (sorry forgot to take a photo). I followed this super easy tutorial .

My three nieces each received these (pic below) adorable Elodie the Elephants. So cute and cuddly, but not the easiest to make (I have no patience for handstitching!) Put it this way it was a skill building exercise (smiley face). The pattern was from one my fave books One Yard Wonders.

I also made several produce bags (I love a good free online patern) with gorge fabrics from the workroom as well as everyday tote bags from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing.

Now I'm craving new projects! Any suggestions?
