I'm happy to be participating in this beautiful and organized block of the month from one of my favorite designers! I've got all of the plain squares cut and ready. I added a title block for my finished wall hanging since I don't have the same border print she suggested.

Another heart stitched to a patch, stitched to a bag.

A dear friend gifted me with many lovely variegated perle cotton threads. This was my first time working with perle cotton, and I love it! I can see why it is a bit pricier. I stitched the heart to a plain piece of fabric. Then, cut it into a circle. Then, sewed the circle to an old dryer sheet. Explaining this would work better if I had pictures of the process. Anyhow, the circle patch is handstitched to a purchased cotton drawstring bag.

These are the last two for a total of four Wildolive stitching pouches. This ticking fabric was given to me by a friend. It was the leftovers from me making her 2 new removable laundry hamper liners. I lined all of the pouches with a pale blue and white sheet and one layer of 809 interfacing. This is the sort of useful, fast, easy project that I could easily make a couple dozen of. But this time I won`t.

 Although I am adjusting how much I sew, I still managed to make a few of these pouches. This is just 2 pics of the same bicycle pouch with wide teal lace. Since I am participating in a couple Block of the Month patterns I`ll need to keep some projects going for a while. Hopefully this will help me stay away from keeping my projects in ziplocs.

I`m going to try to snap pics of more of the onesies as I stitch them. I enjoy making these because they are super quick and easy to show off. since the baby wears them.

Katherine has been doing some hand embroidery with me lately. I decided she needed a little pouch to hold her hoop and latest project. One of my favorite blogs had a cute and fast idea. She suggested using a ruffle, but in the interest of time and simplicity, I used some lace scraps.
