Stroller Holder aka Pinspiration numero – sesenta y tres

My BIL’s-M girlfriend just had their second child.  Well, he was born in October 2016, but still, he’s under a year.  Anyways, I saw this stroller cell phone carrier and thought it might come in handy for her.

Since the pieces were pretty small, I looked through my stash and found this cute pink, her favorite color, print with hearts on it.  I also had these grommets on hand.

It was a pretty easy and fast sew, and came together within minutes.

Here is the front side.

And the back side.  I thought the single heart was super cute.

Thankfully she said that it’ll come in handy since the stroller doesn’t have a cell phone holder.

Most definitely will have to make more as gifts!

Coloring Pad Carrying Case aka Pinspiration numero – sesenta y dos

I saw this awesome coloring pad carrying case and thought it would be so fun as a gift for a kid.  But when I clicked on the link from pinterest, I couldn’t find the link.  So I bought a coloring pad and used the measurements of the pad to create my own pattern.

I had bought these Viking prints for a friend’s kid who loves, well the family loves, Vikings and anything associated with it.  I didn’t know what to make with it but then I saw this case and thought that would be perfect!

Sorry for the blurry photo.  Here is my inside all put together.  On the left side, there is a pocket up top and a color pencils holder on the bottom.  On the right side is where the coloring pad goes.

This project was pretty fun to make.  It hurt my brain to figure out the math, but once I got it done it felt great to know that I made this. It wasn’t my idea, but I created a pattern from the picture and sewed it altogether.

Quilted Water Bottle Tote

My mom carries, like, five bags with her at all times.  One of them carries two water bottles.  This is the bag that she used to carry her water bottles.  She asked me to make a tote about the same size.

So I took some pictures and some measurements.  See her water bottles?

This is what I came up with.

I started by making a template (see right side of picture) on graph paper and then I cut all the squares (2.5″ x 2.5″) and arranged them as I had written on my template.

After I sewed all the squares together, I sewed the strips together. (sorry for the blurry photo)

A close up of the sewed squares.

I used Alison Glass’s Handcrafted Indigo line to make the outside.  The inner print is a cute Cotton & Steel print called “Tea Stained Dots in Blue”.  The stains look weird but a good weird, at least I think.  =)

I feel like the stains add some dimension and depth to the print.  I put in two slip pockets so that she could put her phone, or anything else, in there without having it get wet from the bottles.

The front side.  I used the blocks to make a small message.  Can you see what the message is?  It’s kind of hard to see but if you know my mom you should be able to figure out what it says.

This is the back side.

She had told me that she really likes the quilted look so when she asked me to make this tote for her I knew exactly what I was going to do.  She also likes the color blue, if you couldn’t tell.  Haha!

Lilo & Stitch

My SIL-J loves Lilo & Stitch.  I had made her an Art Gallery Fabrics “The Cristina Clutch” for Christmas and used Minions as the inside lining.  I knew she liked the Minions but hadn’t heard her talk about them in a while so I had asked her if she still liked them and then she reminded me that while she does like them, her absolute favorite is Lilo & Stitch.

I then went on a rampage trying to find some L&S print so that I could make all things L&S for her.  I found some and quickly started into making something.  But what could I make that she might use?

I decided that a small zipper bag could always come in handy sometime.  So I made her a small zipper bag with a little key chain ring.

I wasn’t sure what color to use for the lining but ended up with this bright yellow.  I like that yellow is bright so it can help you find things when you’re looking inside, even though this bag isn’t very big or deep.  I also like that it is so bright and happy.

I made this toddler drawstring backpack for my niece-Z.  She already has a backpack but i thought this might be fun so that she could match her mama.  It’s the same size as this fishing one.

Just a picture of the inside, no lining.

This print is super cute and I still have at least a half yard left, I think.  I’m not sure what to make next with it but I’m sure I’ll find something.

Mustache You, Mustache Me

A friend I met in Alabama had seen my Noodle-Head Double Zip Wallet on Facebook and casually mentioned that it would be awesome in a mustache print.  I didn’t have any in my stash but I found some on sale so I purchased some and started working on it.  Here it is in its finished form.

After making three before this one, it definitely came together quicker and easier.  The construction of the wallet is baffling but fun.
