Sew and Tell Fridays 5

I haven't been anywhere near as productive as I would have liked the last 2 weeks, the whole household was down with the cruds for about a week and Between that, 2 birthdays, trying to get my spring cleaning done (a couple of months early, but I mean seriously, who really wants to waste that gorgeous spring weather cleaning?) and trying to sort through my fabrics so I can liquidate some of it, I feel like I've barely sewn at all!

I have though, since my last post I've completed/shipped 3 custom orders, a Seuss Cradle set, a Seuss crib quilt and a Cogsmo Toddler rag quilt bedding set..Which turned out SO cute I have to share it :)


I also finished another tote, and I'm thinking I will be adding these style of pockets inside more often:



and I've been working on a baby quilt. The top and back is done, and it has been pinned Now I just have to find some time to get it quilted so I will have a binding project!

I actually love having bindings to do, over the past year Hubby and I have been watching more TV in the evenings, and I like having handwork to work on while we do..who knew? LOL!

Here's a little sneak of the quilt..and now you know where the inspiration for the tote came from ;)


I'm linking up with Amy Lou Who for Sew and Tell Fridays, make sure to pop over and check out all of the amazing talent!

So cute! Those are my favorite kinds of pockets in a bag for phone, pen, and notepad (or hide my gum from the kids!).

Cute rag quilt set and bag. I like gingham print and the pockets inside the bag.
Funny, I have been watching less TV and have finished more!

Love those pockets
And the cogsmo quilt is really cute. Gotta love Cosmo Cricket

Jenn said...

I'm like you, too - I like to do bindings and to have handwork while I watch TV. I tried doing my quilt bindings by machine and it just doesn't look as good to me. I really love how neat and clean your tote looks - you do great work!

Mandy Noble said...

Wow, you have been busy! Love the tote and that fabric is so cute.

Nina... said...

You really have been busy! I really like the pockets in your tote, so practical. Your quilt top is lovely, is that linen?

Karen said...

Great finishes. I love your tote bag. The fabric is way cute. Pockets are very useful in a bag. You don;t spend as much time hunting around the bottom of your bag for things then.
