This is my grand daughter, Aria, who lives way too far away in WA.
She is modeling the shirt I made her last week-it looks so pretty on her! 
She just turned four and is train-crazy !
It is much nicer modeled than lain flat like this! 
I made a little flamingo zippered bag (4 x 6") to go in your purse. 
It has a fun lining, too.
This is for a friend who just celebrated a birthday.
I am enjoying this cool way to bind the zipper ends.  It makes turning the bag so much cleaner.
I still have enough of this fat quarter to make several more little bags like this.
There is nothing like a cool, quick project!


  1. Aria is adorable in her train top! Cute little flamingo bag too! You do beautiful work.

  2. someone looks very pretty in the new top:) and I like the lining fabric - colourful dots are so useful in patchwork! I am still looking for a special lavender one with dots I once had - unfortunately I only bought a FQ at the time - should have bought the hole bolt:)

  3. I love that bag you sent me. I was just wasting some time looking at tutorials on how to make a small bag like that. I just may give it a go when I get home.

  4. PS: The shirt is too cute and as for your little Miss Grand-beautiful!!!

  5. I need to remember to pick up zippers in all colors and sizes whenever I see them. Then I would always have some on hand in case I want to make bags. But then, I always have an excuse to not go up to sew in my craft room. Well, right now it's being prepped to move, so that really is a good reason.


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Quilted Jars of Food!

 Just unrolled from the frame is this quilt by Millie, my neighbor.  We collected food fabric last summer when we did a shop hop.  (Sorry...
