241 Tote Finish

I am  really excited to finally be sewing up some stuff lately. My introduction to Instagram really distracted me. School is getting back in session in two days, and I can land some more focus here. Yay!


The pattern is from Noodlehead. http://www.noodle-head.com/2011/03/241-tote-pattern.html

 
I got in Secret Tote Bag Swap 5. I am totally addicted to swaps. I have passed up on 3 within the last week. I had to run and take my temp to see if I was feeling ok. Temp is still good! Ha!



 I took mine out for a little photo shoot at the park. I am trying to upgrade my skills with the camera. It's not a fancy one, but outdoor shots are so pretty. Plus, it's 2 for 1. I took the kids to play.


 
I made my hubby a little Birthday Star Wars wallet. He loved it.
 
 
I was in a little Ice Cream Pencil Case swap on Instagram. The first one came out a bit too small for pencils found @a spoonful of sugar blog.  I the second one just made it a little bigger. I used a ice cream pattern found on google. I can't find the website, again. Sorry.
 
I did a little paper pieced ice cream. Her favorite flavors were Strawberry, peanut butter, and coffee. I love the Munk HR ice cream truck. I got from a destash. I just love all Heather Ross!  

 
I added  some more HR strawberries. I love a colorful zip. I did a quilt as you go with some medium weight interfacing. I used some ribbon to make the tail.

 
Plus, I added the little ice cream pull. Cute, and it's Joanns. I love the shiny fabric too. It's also joanns. My favorite. Anything shiny is my favorite!

As I said, I love a little Heather Ross! This was a little extra for the Strawberry Swap I was in recently. Really, passing up the last 3 swaps I saw was probably a really good idea.

I am currently working on the #ecmqg scrap swap. Hehehe! I couldn't pass it up. Happy sewing!
Blog at ya later!

    1. Thanks Vera, I love my little swaps, and these were hard to let go. I am trying to take a swap diet this year and get back to some more handmade home stuff. I think I am going to start with a Pumpkin Tablerunner, coming soon. :)
