Now that Christmas is over, I can share several of the projects that were gifts that I worked on.
Barbados Bag by Pink Sand Beach Designs. The fabrics in this have gold metallic that don't show up very well in the photos. This was for my sister-in-law.
I also made a matching Fiona wallet (pattern by Clobird Designs).
One of these Seahawks wallets (a variation on the Fiona pattern) was a gift to my mom. The other one I will keep since the quality wasn't up to my standards.
I also made a really nice tote bag from a free online tutorial. It is called the Market Tote from Bijou Lovely (http://www.bijoulovelydesigns.com/2010/05/market-tote-tutorial.html). It is a heavier duty tote than some of them out there. This bag also gifted to a dear friend. I just love the cat fabric!
Then I made up a few more runaround bags out of Seahawks fabric, but wouldn't you know, I forgot to take pictures!
Lastly, although not a bag or tote, I made a hexie Christmas ornament. It is all hand sewn. If you knew me, you would know I do not like hand sewing. However, I learned more about paper piecing while making this. Although the free online tutorial (http://belenpatchwork.blogspot.com.es/2013/03/llavero-de-hexagonos.html) was for a keychain, I opted to go the ornament route. Once again, this was a gift for Susan at our local Post Office.
