Coming Soon…

A may and mae shop update!!!!

I’ve been working on a new pattern and revisions to an old pattern for a while now. I finally decided today that I need to announce a “coming soon” date as a little motivation to get them done!!

The Sunday Bag pattern has gotten a little “face lift”. Some of the yardages have been modified slightly and it now includes instructions for adding the ribbon ruffle to the front of the bag. 
If you have purchased the pattern in the past and you’d like the updated version, just email me and I’ll send it to you.
Just in time for your Christmas sewing, I’ve also added a few kits to the shop.
5 different Fabric kits for the Sunday bag. All the kits include decor weight designer fabric, from designers like Anna Maria Horner and Amy Butler. The kit includes fabric and ribbon, you will need to purchase interfacing and handles.

There are also a few kits for the June Bag. These bags are QUICK and easy to sew and DO include interfacing and a button. All you need to add is thread!  The June Bag pattern stayed the same just a “face lift” to the cover photo.

The March Bag also got a little cover face lift! Same great pattern, just a new look.
1- The May Quilt,
It’s a fun lap sized quilt that incorporates photos for some of the blocks. I made it for my niece for graduation last year, hence the name the May Quilt (she graduated in May)… 
2-  Kit for the Skinny Stripey Table runner from last year!
I need to dig this out and get a better photo of it!!

It was a project for Moda Bake Shop. I’ve been busy cutting out letters and shapes, so you don’t have to! I’ll have the kits for sale along with a Honey Bun so you’ll have everything you need to make the quilt (except backing and batting).


Monday November 22nd watch for a shop update… keep your fingers crossed for me!! I’ve got to get this done!!!
