My daughter is CRAZY about Dr. Who. Her 15th birthday is just around the corner-we went shopping for some of her presents the other day because some things she just has to try on! She chose a tardis t shirt dress and red converse-specifically for a school drama club event- and a t shirt and Dr Who wrist bands. All of these items are for her birthday. However, I am constantly trying to get the girl to carry a purse so that she can keep track of all of her electronics etc. So, today I pulled out the blue Kona and went to work. The words are embroidered with my embroidery machine, windows are wonder-undered on and then a straight stitch around the edge, and the black is satin stitch on my regular machine. It was just a pattern I had stuck in the closet. I shortened the strap considerably and I am still not sure it is short enough.
I added the inside pockets that were part of the pattern but I made them out of some of my London themed fabric that is actually meant for a quilt for my sister that I will get to some day...
I have to say that I am very happy with how it turned out. If she doesn't like it enough to carry it, I might have to...So, there will be a little surprise for her birthday, this and a Dr Who wallet that I ordered from the UK because I couldn't find it anywhere in the US.
These are some of the blocks for a quilt I am working on for a customer. It is made from all of her daughter's baby clothes. The blocks take a LONG time to trim the clothing items, iron interfacing on the back, and trim to a usable size and then put together. There are six 18 inch blocks here. I think I need 30 or maybe even 36!
Here are three more... they all still need to have their final trimming.
I think it will be late in the week before I get a day to work on these again.
