Friday Night Sew In Across the Pond

As I mentioned in my post the other day,
Friday Night Sew In was last night.
It was hosted by the lovely Wendy of
Sugarlane Quilts.
You can take a peak at her fun blog

I decided to kill two birds with one stone,
as the saying goes,
and also complete this month's 
item.

This month we were to do a key ring zippey pouch.
We used Erin Erickson's free tutorial, which you can find
or you could use any pattern for that matter.
(or create your own!)

Here's mine.
lol....I must be tired....I see I spelled 'singing' wrong in my watermark

These little pouches go together very quickly.
I loved it!
When I got done, I also decided to make a matching 
phone sleeve.  
You can find that tutorial, also by Erin,


And here they are together,
so you get the 'cool' affect.

I always love how Amy has her labels 
applied to the goodies she makes. 
I don't have any labels with my logo yet, (first I have to design a logo!)
but I do have these cute labels I purchased from Etsy
(and for the life of me, I can't remember which store!)
So, I ironed one on the inside. 


Only to have my iron leave a mark as well!
Darn it.

I also made up a thread catcher,
just for fun.
I wanted to experiment a little more with my Sizzix dies
and free motion applique,
so I came up with this.


Over all, not too shabby!

So THANK YOU, Wendy, for hosting FNSI,
and thank you, Amy, Susie and Amanda
for another month of goodies to create!

PS....I have it on good authority that it's someone's birthday today.
If you have a moment, pop over to Shay at Quilting in My Pyjamas
and wish her a fabulous day!

Enjoy!
xoxo

What a great sew-in night! All of these items look so impressive and professional!!! I didn't notice the iron mark even when I was looking for it...that pretty label is so distracting that I can't take my eyes off of it. Everything is super cute! So glad you had a fun date night with Josie.

Happy days.

What a great zippy pouch for the phone..

Shay said...

Wow! You did a ton of stuff and it's all gorgeously gorgeous!

You really need to design some labels. Having your name on your stuff would immortalise your fabulousness.
