Make up Bags

I've been making a ton of makeup bags.  For my stepdaughter and her friends, and my MIL's cousin and her friends....I am going to be a makeup bag professional! :D  Here is the makeup bag for my stepdaughter, she is all about peace, love, and recycling - so she picked out this fabric herself.  She loves going fabric shopping with me if that means she gets something too ;)

She chose a funky color zipper - fun!

Mickey Mouse Blanket

My son is in love with Mickey Mouse - so when we were at Hobby Lobby and he saw this tie blanket, he had to have it.  I am not particularly a fan of tie blankets, having only made one...and I felt that it didn't turn out perfect.  This blanket, however, had lines marked on it for cutting!!!  How convenient.  So the other night my step daughter and I turned on Twilight, and set about cutting this baby up.  Here it is finished. 

How do I rotate this photo?? >.>

The best part - he loves it and cuddles it (even though it's warm outside!).  So all in all, it was a great purchase, and a fun project.

Finally some progress!!

I've been terrible on the sewing front, only sewing small things to get my obligations(swaps/bees) for the month done.  Now though ,I did some fun sewing! My sister was over for dinner last night and helped motivate me.  She helped with block placement, gathering them to sew, ironing, etc.  Before I new it a flimsy quilt top was born!

This will be for my niece for Christmas.  Let's hope I can finish it by then. hehe.
