A Diana Hobo Diaper Bag

I haven’t had much time to sit down in front of my sewing machine lately. At least, not as much as I would like. I have one project I would like to finish and two I would like to start. Sadly, I think they may have to wait until the next sewing retreat. Sewing machines just don’t transport to the playground the way a sock and knitting needles do.

But I did grab a moment to sew up one of my Diana Hobo bags as a diaper bag for a good friend expecting her first little one. The fabric is Amy Butler’s Nigella, Starflower Tiles in Spinach here. I hope she enjoys it!

First of all, Happy 4th to all of you. I hope you are doing something relaxing and fun as we reflect on the birth of our nation and what it means to us.

At the last Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day the way to gain entry into my giveaway was to tell me a favorite recipe or favorite free pattern or tutorial and I believe that the most common favorite sewing pattern was Noodlehead’s Gathered Clutch! Now this pattern has been on my radar for awhile. I mean, c’mon, it’s super cute, simple to put together, requires very little fabric and yet would be a perfect gift! So, at the last Sewcial, I finally took the time to sew one of these little clutches up.

Noodlehead Gathered Clutch

Of course I had to use some scraps of some of my favorite fabrics. You might remember seeing them in a new mama set awhile back and I held onto the scraps of Patricia Bravo’s Paradise – Pond in Twilight and Oval Elements in Green Apple. I just adore them together. I mean, look at this fabric:

Noodlehead Gathered Clutch

It reminds me a little bit of paint by number. But better.

The inside has some spots for the essential cards and a little more. And just to give an idea of the size of this little clutch:

Noodlehead Gathered Clutch

It is great for a little date night, but maybe not an everyday purse (although your ‘everyday’ may look quite different than mine!). I think it could be a great little wallet as well – just add extra card pockets. All in all a great little sew – would be a great gift.

12 Days of Handmade Holidays Giveaway: Day 5

::Comments are closed.::

Have I ever mentioned that I have a twin? Well, not a real twin, but a blog twin. It’s funny how the blog world brings people together that otherwise would never meet. To be honest, I’m not quite sure how we ended up following each other’s blogs! We have strikingly similar interests and sons that are just a couple months apart. Needless to say, having little boys about the same age brings our worlds very close. Monica blogs over at Deliberately Domestic and has a fun etsy shop where she sells some of her handmade goods!

And for the giveaway part of this post? Monica graciously donated a fun little snap clutch purse for one of you readers to win! I love the fun pleats and great floral print.

Twelve Days of Handmade Holidays

I’m completely feeling this purse as a date night purse. Just the essentials in the bag and go! Perfect!

Twelve Days of Handmade Holidays

No baby items necessary in this purse!

So how do you enter for Day 5? Three different ways:

  • Scadaddle right on over to Monica’s shop and tell me your favorite item or an item you would love to give to someone special in your life.
  • Reblog the giveaway and leave me a separate comment with the link.
  • Subscribe to my blog via RSS Reader or e-mail and leave me another separate comment saying you subscribed (top left corner of the blog) or tell me that you already subscribe.

What are you waiting for? Enter now because this giveaway will end on Friday, December 10th at 10pm. This item will only be shipped to a winner within the US.

Many many Diana Hobo Purses

If you ever wondered what I did with my time during Jude’s naps, this should give you a hint. I made eight of these purses last week to try and get some inventory in my etsy shop (there were two of the black Ring Dot purses – one had a blue interior, the other, golden yellow – it seemed redundant to show you two of the same) ! Three of them were spoken for before they were even made, but the rest are up for grabs! Oh and there are a couple of slings in there too. I had to share them – I like the way they turned out. 🙂

Now that I’ve got some shop sewing out of the way, stay tuned for some fun, silly sewing!

Lots of sewing happening around here, a few custom orders and a few bags sewn up to list in the shop.

I had a hard time listing this one, I kinda want to keep it. Still. Don’t be surprised if it disappears from the shop. The fabric is Erin McMorris Wildwood Collection – Checked Floral in Green.

Another one I had a hard time listing. This fabric is Michael Miller Brown Disco Dots. Why do these fabrics have to be so beautiful?

And I didn’t even get to blog about this purse before it sold! The fabric is Michael Miller Yellow Best Friend Summer Soiree. I made two, one was a gift for a friend’s birthday . . . and the other was sold in the shop. Hooray for making sales to people I don’t even know!

And another custom order New Mama Survival Kit in Valori Wells Del Hi, Tango – Ruby and Flora – Blossom. Fun, bright fabrics for a sweet little girl and her mom. 🙂

Can I just say that I love getting to play with such great fabrics?

I have a custom order that I’m almost finished with that I’m so excited about! It is turning out fantastic – another fabric set that I am so thrilled with. And I do have some sewing going on that is for me (well, Jude actually) and I’ll be sharing that soon.

Phoebe Bag

I don’t want you guys to think I’m not sewing! I am! And I have some great projects that I’m going to be starting soon…. I mean, Christmas sewing is starting now!

I whipped up this little beauty as a gift for my mother-in-law’s birthday. The clarity of writing in this pattern is fantastic although I think it helps to have sewn a few purses already to understand where the steps are taking you. Best of all, this pattern is free from artsycraftybabe! Click here for the free PDF pattern for the Phoebe Bag.

I really like that this bag fits perfectly under your arm when you wear it on your shoulder and I think it’s a good medium sized purse, just perfect to carry what you need, but not big enough that things get lost. The thing I would do differently if I made this again… I think it might be nice to add a zipper to the opening in addition to the flap and magnetic snap. Overall a fun little sewing project! I hope she likes it!

Fat Quarter Totes

I whipped up a three fat quarter tote bags as gifts this past Sunday and I thought they turned out really cute! It’s a free pattern that you can find at Cicada Daydreams. It’s about the perfect size to be a lunch tote. I love that the instructions show you how to utilize the entire fat quarter – almost nothing goes to waste! I used a cotton canvas fabric that I’ve used before in several different projects that is from Ikea (but I don’t think they have this print any longer). I really like that the lining sticks up above the exterior just a bit to peek out and show the color that matches the bottom panel. If I make this again, I would probably add some pockets, either on the outside or the inside, but I think that may be the one thing that’s lacking. . .

Tote Bag Lunch Time

Super fun lunch today! I met with my ‘Little Sister’, Amy (through Big Brothers, Big Sisters) and I taught her a bit about sewing. We sewed this great little tote bag that she is modeling below:

She’s going to be the talk of the school when they all find out that she sewed that nifty little bag! We didn’t follow any pattern, just sewed together the rectangles, made handles and put it all together. She did such a great job picking up how to sew in a straight line, I’m pretty sure we’ll have to do another little sewing project soon! Way to go Amy!

Gosh, wouldn’t it be great if I could do a ‘free pattern Friday’ every Friday?

So Anna Maria Horner just released a new purse pattern that reminds me a lot of my new free pattern just without straps! I thought I’d show it to y’all because it seems easy enough to make a few small modifications to my pattern to emulate her new clutch!

So remember this purse and my promise to give you a free pattern?

Also this should go without being said but I’ll say it anyways: please do not sell items made from this free pattern and do not claim it as your own design!

A Crafty Day Off – Part 2

I’m afraid this post may not be as exciting as the last one. At least, I’m not as excited about it as my last one. Sadly, my second day of crafting was not quite as productive as I would have hoped. Mainly because of the failed attempt at another pattern I created on my own. Anyone want to offer me reassurance on this one? I’m pretty sure I should never try to make it in a bright print again. It looks a bit like a pillow you would find on grandma’s couch:

I will try again though, I like the concept and I think it would be cute in a solid color. It was also my first time to make something with ruffles, which was surprisingly easier than I thought it was going to be.

I did finish up some earrings that are really simple gifts but I like them anyways. 🙂

And lastly, I am working on getting together some more generic gifts that I can make in mass quantity. Typically these are cookies, but I’ve decided I don’t think I want to make mass quantities of cookies this year. . . so I thought this could be fun and maybe easier!

I’m reusing mason jars from pasta sauce to fill with the dry ingredients for Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Brownies. . . I’ll attach a tag with what remaining wet ingredients need to be added (like, oil, butter or eggs) and how to cook. I think that’s a fun idea! I know I’d like something like that if I was the recipient.
