Some fabric and a few small finishes

 My mom sent a couple fat quarters along with some Halloween treats a couple weeks ago. First was this beautiful bird fabric.

 Cardinal. We don't have cardinals in Idaho. I miss them.

She also sent along this Care Bear fabric.

 Which I have since made into 2 tissue holders/wallets. One will go in my daughter's stocking, the other will go to a niece.

 I also finished my first Barbie outfit. I used some left over sock yarn.

 Shirt, skirt and scarf. The first 2 have snaps on the back. I think I will have to make some more since they were relatively easy and quick to make. Nieces might be getting some of these too. Going to try a dress and a jacket next.

 Made myself a little purse. My sister had made me a similar bag for my birthday a couple years ago but I've used it almost everyday since and it needs to be replaced. I made this bag out of some charm squares to try the quilting you can see on the bag. I eventually did the quilting on a baby quilt and decided the practice piece was nice enough to keep. (The charm squares became the lining instead of the outside of the quilt since they very light fabrics, and I didn't want to worry about it looking dirty in a week)

My son likes all the different stitches my sewing machine has and thought I should do something different on the handle. This was his pick and I really like it. I've used the purse a few times and all has gone well. Not as big as the one my sister made me but it gets the job done.

  1. I have about 100 naked Barbie dolls that a friend of mine was throwing away. I rescued them and will be dressing them and giving away to grandkids and charity....I think I'll use leftover yarn too. Thanks for the idea...I love redbirds and don't see enough of them. I really like redbird fabric too. Merry Christmas.
