Dexter's Quilt

Well, it's done!
That means I can have this baby now, right?

I used the tutorial from Moda Bake Shop, Building Blocks Baby Quilt.
But instead of using the fabric from the tutorial, I used all the non pink stuff from Sunkissed by Sweetwater.

I think it's a bit too small, but Steve keeps telling me it's ok.

Isn't it cute?
(Please don't mind the carpet)

The back side! I love the backing!!

All folded up and ready for a baby to come and use it!

More of the backing.

I got more of the Sunkissed line for the crib stuff.
Which, I'm going to leave until after the baby comes and after we move.
But for now, I'm happy with what I have done and can't wait to meet this little guy!

Stuff for inside the purse

I finally got around to making the coin purse and small pouch for my purse.
I used this tutorial here.

The coin purse and small pouch.

Inside of the small pouch.
That's a lot of chap stick!
Inside the coin purse.
It's not that great. Some how the side is a little bit bigger than the outside.
Oh well.

I think I'm putting off making the baby's quilt. But it really shouldn't take me that long to do.
Maybe later this weekend I'll get it started!

New Purse

I finally got my act together and made myself a new purse. I used the Tailored Bags Pattern from Craft Apple. I changed it up a little bit and added the cell phone pocket from The Diaper Bag Pattern, added more pockets on the inside and made straps instead of the handles. I think it turned out great!

Back with a huge pocket

The inside. The cell phone pocket is on the right, and the added pocket is on the top. I made two pockets, a 1/3rd and and 2/3rd pocket. Great for my sunglasses and check book!

Now I just want to make a small coin purse and small bag for chap stick and stuff like that.
