Well - I promised handmade things before the end of the week - and I shall deliver - but I must share my exciting news first!! Glenna sells fabric and she featured my AB love bag here - on her blog today! I was so excited this morning! Yea! Someone noticed my stuff (and liked it too! ala Sally Field "You like me, you really like me!") anyway - enough gushing. Just thought I'd share my excitment.
Now, truly onto handmade things. I chose a layout for the Nest Quilt (or rather learned how you were supposed to do it) and sewed the squares together. I still plan to frame the front and have to make the back - but I'm pretty happy with the layout. Also - my squares are lining up better and better! The 1/4" foot is making a difference - but I am not invincible - yet. :)
I do have another handmade I'm working on this week - but its a surprise for a certain little princess's birthday this weekend - so I can't show you. Luckily, I have a few aces in my back pocket of things I've made that I haven't showed yet. Here is one!
My fabulous Amy Butler Wide Leg Lounge Pants (complete with fabric upside down - I was just too excited when I started making them that I cut before I realized - lol!)
Anyway - I love them. But also - just because I thought it was funny - not only are they wide leg - they are wide topped too! If you untie them they fall STRAIGHT down...
No unfortunately - I didn't lose any weight for this shot! I just like to pretend it is my 'after' picture when I'm having a bad day! These pants are actually why my mom asked for her pair for Christmas! I love the In Stitches book and have made quite a few patterns from it now. These, are probably my favorite!
You are definitely going to want to come back tomorrow - Friday Eye Candy is going to be GOOD! :)
