More Misc

More odds and ends today.  I have several projects that are ready for quilting and binding and will get those posted one of these days.... you know how that goes.
This is a little zipper bag that I made for a birthday gift last month.  My friend likes anything pink.
  Inside....blurry shot.....

This is a little fabric basket that I made this afternoon.  It's a free Craftsy pattern called 1 Hour Basket Tutorial.  I'm thinking it took me an hour and a half...but then I'm pretty slow.  It was quite easy and once you've made one, the next ones probably would be easily completed in one hour.  This is a great size to hold a bunch of FQ's.

A little stash acquisition.  These yummy fabrics came from Missouri Quilt Company.  If you haven't already signed up.... they have a daily deal that is pretty inexpensive.  I don't remember now, but this charm pack was probably $1 or $2.  The catch is... and this isn't much of a catch.... they have a flat rate shipping cost of $5.  This still brings it in much less than the normal price of a charm pack, plus you can add other fabrics and goodies to this same shipping price.  They have fabulous service.

More stash acquisition.... This time from Shabby Fabrics, another one of my favorite shops.  They had a wonderful sale of Tim Holtz fabrics for $5 a yard.  I just love his style and picked up several fabrics.  This is another shop with fabulous service and products! 

And lastly..... and the best....  I picked up this little lady on Ebay.  As always, I was looking for a bargain and I found one.  Not sure why I was the only bidder but I was thrilled to win this sweet children's machine.  It came with the original instructions as well as the table clamp.  And this may make you wince.... it came with the original box too.... but I tossed it.  I know.. you always keep the original box but this one was in horrible shape.  One side was almost completely chewed off by some sort of rodent and the other sides weren't much better.  It had to go!
So there's a little update to let you all know that I'm still out here.  I'm not sewing as much as I would like, but I am nipping away at one thing or another.  Stay tuned.......


  1. Some great finds there! I saw the post about the 1 hour basket and am going to give it a try. Lord knows I have enough fabric to make one or a zillion! That little zippered pouch is adorable. Do you know what fabric that is? I'm not the biggest fan of pink, but that print speaks to me....lol.

    1. Hi Linda.... you are a no reply blogger so I couldn't email you. First of all...thanks so much! I can see lots of uses for those 1 hour baskets and plan to make more....would have made some cute Easter baskets. And that fabric for the pouch came from my stash. I have no idea what line it is...I'll bet it's 10 years old. I liked it too... pink is not my color, but it's got a bit of salmon in it to tone it down. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. All of your stuff is wonderful. That 1 Hr Basket is so awesome. Good find for that little machine.

  3. In love with your little pink machine ! I'll have to check out the basket tute....it's cute !

  4. I love those bags and that pink machine is a real steal! Cool! Happy Easter!
