For your viewing pleasure….

While I’m getting over this nasty cold, I thought that I’d share some projects that people have emailed me.
When I design projects I have in mind that other people would want to make them (thus, the tutorials) but to actually SEE someone make it is just soooooooo cool to me!!! That’s the reason that I started and keep working on this blog!
So here are a few of ones made from my tutorials on Moda Bake Shop (if you have done something please send me an email, I want to do a post like this again).

Chirstine at Pickup some creatviity made the Thanksgiving Advent Calendar… LOVE that she put her family name on it… good idea for next time.

edited to add:  Oh my I forgot one!

Raechel at Finding my feet made the patchwork skirt.  Don’t you just LOVE the blue striped waistband???? Look how she lined the butterflies up on the bottom band of the skirt!

Lara at Thornberry made a skirt from a charm pack from this tutorial… I love this so much, I went out and bought the charm pack!

Jennifer W. made the Charm Square skirt out of this Fall charm pack… Makes me WISH I would have made one for my daughter this year! I’ll have to make a Christmas one.

Louise at Vintage Giraffe made this bag from my Angela’s diaper bag tutorial. I LOVE the fabric she chose!!!  She is using it as a work bag… such a good idea!

Speaking of Moda…. time to buckle down and get my next project DONE! It’s a Christmas one, and I can’t wait until it’s finished!

    I cannot wait for your Christmas Moda project! Now, the chances I’ll make it myself are slim, but I am super excited to “ooh” and “aah” over it.
