Had Such High Hopes For This……

Ever have one of those projects that looks really cool when someone else does it? Attempt it yourself, and it turns out like a big pile of poo!  Here’s mine:

IMG_0001It WAS supposed to look perfect…..like on the cover.  First off I didn’t read the directions ALL the way through, so I ended up having to do it the ‘hard’ and soooo verrryyyy slooooooow way.  Needless to say, hardly any of the blocks turned out the same size, and of course, they didn’t line up correctly when sewing the rows together.  Ick!

Since I’m doing some things out of my comfort zone, I decided to try my hand at a pair of pants……..(insert your hysterical laughter here)  Hehe!

I’ll be sure to show a pic of the finished product……if it doesn’t make me look like I have a ‘bubble butt’:)  These also look awesome in my head, so we will see……….Ha!  Have a great week!!!

New Favorite Fabric Line!

Don’t consider myself a quilter, but I think this is going to turn out cute…..maybe?? There are obviously more blocks and the black barcodes fabric will be the backing. Hope to have the top done soon to show:)

This Wasn’t Supposed To Be For Me, But…….

This bag turned out so dang cute, I may just keep it for myself;)   I upcycled a belt for the strap.  It was originally too long, so I folded it over on itself to create a self-padded strap, right where it hits on the shoulder/neck.  That feature will come in common since my purse is usually the family garbage can / carry-all;) I got the awesome fabric from a fellow Etsy buddy.  Check out her fabric and supply shop here.  Excellent customer service and speedy delivery! Have you ever upcycled anything and made something awesome?  Please share!
