Scrappy Sack


When we were in Beaver Bay MN in April I picked up the pattern and fabric to make A Scrappy Sack by This & That Patterns, for the fall.  I was anxious to see how it turned out.

Here is my version of this bag.

on the inside I put pockets that the pattern
didn't call for, but I always have
to have pockets.

The back shows off the fabric better.

It is Drangonfly Summer by Moda.
The outer bag takes most of a charm pack and you
need to buy fabric for the lining and handles.

I changed the pattern a little because I made
my lining so that you don't see the seams
and I didn't add buttons to the handles
sewed them down to the bag.

A cute little bag for fall.

It Has Been Very Busy These Last Few Days

I finished my twister placemat and also made a small doll quilt. 

This little quilt is for a bunny and
will be given to
The Christmas Cheer Fund in December.

Here is bunny all snuggled into his quilt.

Last Friday we left to go to the cabin because the 2 small roofs needed to be re-shingled.  The main roof was done last June.  No. 1 son and YKW worked on them both and had them done in 2 days.  They were long days and and it was hot.

A lot of hard work being done.

I stayed inside and did some sewing.

This is the Kitty Komono Quilt that I bought
in Trego, Wisconsin on the
Ricky Tims Seminar bus trip.

I have to quilt it now and will
post a final picture then.
