Sparkle Box Pouches!

I've been sewing.

Accomplished tonight: zips sewn and top stitched for 7 boxy sparkle pouches. One pouch finished. If you're looking for a sparkly gift these will be ready later this week. #sewingnightatemilys #noshedoesnthaveinstagram #boxpouches #forsale #zippouch #zippi

I'm a bit addicted.

I can't get enough.

New vinyl colors!! Who needs a pouch?? $17 for a 7" x 3" x 3" or set of three different sizes for $45. Mint, teal, purple, grey, blue, silver. #boxpouch #zipperedpouch #OMGallthesparkles #goingtoquiltcon

Sparkle vinyl!!

Big and little. Special orders for two of my co-workers. What do you think @saharfakhri and @texas_bones ?? Big is 10" x 5" x 4" little is 3" x 1" x 1" #zipperedpouch #boxpouch #sparkles

I'm hoping someone wants to buy these when they're finished... because I just keep making them! 

No really, if you want one let me know.
$17 each (usa shipping included) / $12 / each for the little ones. 

Christmas in July?

I even made a couple OSU themed ones - Go Buckeyes! 

Don't mind me, I'm just over here sewing sparkle pouches.

Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap - Sent!

It's been ages. I know. 

No excuses. This is my blog and I'm sad to have let a month go by without sharing a bit of my sewing. It's getting harder and harder to find a minute to post -- but I don't want to let go of the blogging. I love blogging. So thank you to whoever is still out there reading!

Last month I finished this sweet little mini quilt for the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap. I decided to go with a mini Red Letter Day block - since I can't stand the cuteness of all those tiny bits! Also, I paper pieced a tiny paper airplane there. Really the theme of this was cute (check out those tiny Briar Rose strawberries). 

I have been a bit addicted to paper piecing these days - my preparation for Demoing at International Quilt Fest hooks me every time! I decided to go super personal by spelling out my partner's name in perfectly paper-pieced letters. I imagine with a name like Rhiannon, she doesn't see her name printed on most things. The pattern I used is "My First Alphabet" by Diane Bohn / From the Blank Pages. Diane is awesome and I recommend her patterns - they're great!! 

This one is now living with its new owner Rhiannon / @Raebirdrhi (on instagram)
