. . . & Always

I put this up above our front door all by myself :)

The 'Forever & Always' & flourish are svg files from myvinyldesigner.com

I added our last name.
The name is longer than my 24" mat for my Cricut machine. It's about 36".
I had to cut it in 2 pieces, but by adding a couple of registration marks, I was able to line it up perfectly.

Ruffled Bracelet Project

My Ruffled Bracelet project is quick & easy to make.

It would make a great 'learn to sew' project for girls.

Refreshing New Design

Isn't my new coin pouch sweet? or maybe it's sour?

It can be either way with this design.
By changing the color of fabrics, thread, etc. you can create an orange, lemon or lime!

My lined coin pouch is made 'in the 4x4 hoop'.

Use it as a coin pouch, key ring or backpack tag.

You can purchase my Citrus Coin Pouch machine embroidery design file from my site HERE

A Pumpkin In the G♥rden

My first pumpkin made its appearance.

I have 4 pumpkin vines in my garden. It's the first time I've tried growing them.

This little guy is suppose to get 400 ~ 500 pounds!

I'll keep ya' posted on his progress.

iPad Purse

I recently got an iPad 2 and love it! I take it everywhere with me.

I keep it in a leather case to protect it, but I wanted some type of purse to put it so I could have quick access to it, but still be hands free.

This is what I came up with. I love the sleek, modern look of this purse. The hardware really sets it off.

The front is quilted and the back has a large pocket. A magnetic snap secures the tab closure allowing for quick access to my iPad.

I used one of my Round Key Chains files for the monogram on this purse.

My iPad Purse is easy sewing and photo instructions are included.

Check it out on my website HERE
