WIP Wednesday

So like I was saying earlier I had some big plans for sewing today.  I started and finished my nieces birthday bag.  I'm in love with it, this is the third one I've made, second to be finished, but first one with the embroidered front pocket.  This is definitely the best one yet. I felt like I was being efficient with time but it still took 4 hours even with the embroidery already done ahead of time. I did however add her name.  No pictures of it today but mabe tomorrow.

With the scraps I plan to make a couple of these mini ruffle wallets from Stitchery Dickory Dock. 

We got assigned our fabric basket partners over the weekend and here are the fabric for that cut out.  I'm making the divided basket from Noodlehead.  It's a really great looking basket but I was being very absent minded when following the cutting instruction.  No joke I had to cut the interface and fusible fleece three times!!!  The lining I didn't cut two going the opposite direction (which I swear is not in the instruction) so I didn't have enough of my original choice left to redo.  I luckily found something else that will work.  Hopefully the rest will go more smoothly, it doesn't need to be mailed out until June so if need be I'll keep this one and make another one.  That's kind of how a lot of things go.

That's all for today I think.  I'm linking up at the usual spot over at Freshly Pieced.

Oh..Oh..Oh I almost forgot.  I made a couple of quick dresses for the girls but did some awesome embroidery on them.  I got one completely done with pics and the other is about 75% of the way there.

Hope everyone is having good weather!
