Organic Cotton WIP

I'm working on a cute project using the 10 Flowers print by Harmony Art Organic Design:

I'm doing straight line quilting ATM which is time consuming but perfect for this project. 


Project Box

It's Saturday which means it's time to pull a project box from my future projects pile and share it's contents!

Today I'm sharing a project box full of odds and ends to make some bags.
Thrifted wood and bamboo handles and some vinyl scraps and leftovers
I've been hoarding these for a while and plan to make several totes and handbags eventually. 




Yellow Improv Piecing

Today I made 31 scrappy improv foundation pieced quilt blocks:

The fabrics were from a hoard of scraps a couple of sewist friends gifted to me earlier this year. I still have at least half a dozen other colors to work with but I'm getting there. 


Double Sided Scrap Quilt Finish

Today I finally basted, quilted and bound this double sided scrap quilt that has been languishing for months waiting to be completed! 
One side features scrappy yellow tumblers, the other side features HSTs in scrappy solids. 
It's a great size lap/baby quilt. Henry the Cockapoo has given his stamp of approval:
He thinks all the quilts I make are for him. 
I joined two pieces of batting scraps for this project and used a scrappy solids binding too, so it's totally scrappy! 
I just love a quilt finish! 

 

Organic Sateen Pants

Today I am wearing a new pair of crop pants that I completed late last week, so I got some photos on my morning walk:

The fabric is Dee Dots sateen by Harmony Art Organic Design. You can buy the fabric here:

They pair well with a simple white tank top and this cute black linen over-shirt I bought in a thrift store a while ago.
The fabric is absolutely divine, it drapes well and the simple white on black is a timeless style, I feel like I will get many, many years of use from these!
I also think they would look great with a denim jacket in cooler weather!
I added a simple cell phone pocket to the back! I generally find it hard in store bought clothing to get pockets deep enough for a cell phone these days!
This outfit is great with a simple pair of black Birkenstocks, ballet flats or I could even dress it up more with heels!
They are super comfortable and I  think I have finally got my self drafted pants pattern the way I wanted it.
It is always soooo fun to wear something you have made yourself!
