Quilt Backs...

I posted earlier that I'm trying to figure out backs for my kids' 'winter' blankets.

So, I took them both to the fabric store with me on Saturday. I told my son that he needed to pick out 2 fabrics for himself...and he picked these.....Then I told him to pick out 2 fabrics for his sister...and he picked these...Now, to put them together.....

Another WIP

This is my daughter's top from my leftovers. She doesn't love it QUITE as much, but she still likes the heaviness of it :)
So, now I just have to go shopping for a back and decide how to finish them both :)

Smaller Bag

So, when I made the BIG bag the other day, I decided I liked the pattern, just not the size...
So I adjusted and came up with this one...I like it....but I'm still not sure it's the "perfect" size yet! Don't mind my color choices, it's just a practice one :)

I had some left-over jean squares and flannel and decided to make some "winter" quilts for my kids. I finished the top of this one for my son...it's just a top - and he's already sleeping with it and carrying it around the entire house! I think he likes it...
I am almost done with my daughter's top...then I have to decide how to put them together...

BIG bag

Yesterday while checking my favorite blogs, I saw this super cute tutorial for this bag...It's actually not a very hard pattern at all...just takes some time. You can check out the tutorial here.

So, I decided to try one. It was just a 'prototype', so I just used button holes instead of grommets and webbing instead of cording... I decided not to get all the "official" stuff until I decided if I was going to make more of them or not!
This bag is HUGE!!!!
And I am not exaggerating...it really is a huge bag! I am sitting here trying to decide what I could possibly use it for because it's that big...
Then I thought of all the celebs that carry around their stupid dogs in their carriers...so I put my "puppy" into my bag...she fits perfectly!!!
She is 15 months old...so that'll tell you how big the bag is. I was even able to pick her up and put her on my shoulder for a 'stroll' around the house!So, if you need a super big bag...here's one to try :)
