Avery's birthday

A little girl across the pond is having a birthday.  She herself is a 'maker' so I am sending her a bag to store her tablet (hudl for those in the know) and her earphones all in one place.  Birds nest necklace is an extra.  Not sure what else I'll put in the bag.  I have a week or so to figure it out.

Birds nest necklace!

Always loved these little birds nests I've seen on Pinterest.  Since miss Avery has a birthday coming up I've decided to give it a shot.  Not too bad for a first shot.  Hope she likes it.

I used this tutorial on YouTube.

Bionic gear bag!

Made my first BIONIC GEAR BAG (otherwise known as BGB) by ripstitchr!  Love the pattern, pretty easy.  Some finessing is needed because of thicknesses when applying the side bindings.  First one isn't perfect, but will be well used.  More coming down the chute!

Been puttering ...

In the sewing room, but not that much output.  Still working on Pay Sloans vacation time 2015 quilt along. 

Last week we had our English visitors (Beth, Avery and Oscar) here.  Very busy.  Made Avery a baking apron and we made a Dorothy costume for Halloween.  Made the dress so she could use it as an apron if she wants.
