Busy Busy.... Check out the Lap Top case i made using Amy Butlers Pattern

I have been super busy, spending a lot of time at Hip Stitch.  I also have been trying to keep up with requested sewing projects...

Here is one I will share with you...I was up until 11:30 last night sewing it.  It was a total of a 7 hour project!!!  Needless to say...i won't be making one of these again! :)

Btw...the used pattern will be for sale this week at the shop if you want to come and buy it CHEAP and try this one yourself!

The best feature on the whole thing is the Kokeshi Applique Doll I embroidered on the outside main panel!!!

 Here is a close up of her!!! She is sooo soo pretty!  Be on the Look out for MORE projects to come using these CUTE Kokeshi Dolls!
All Closed up. 
Top Flap Opened
Bottom Opened
Left Flap Opened
 The entire carrier opened.  Of course I had MY laptop upside down...der!  
 THE END!!!  
After 7 hours of LABOR...shouldn't I have come out with a baby or something??  Just sayin....

ACCUQUILT vs WESTMINSTER SIZZIX CUTTER i have had the Accuquilt for a while.  

Well a few months ago Westminster Fibers and Sizzix joined forces and created a Die Cutting system as well.  

Well i got the BRILLIANT idea that MAYBE just MAYBE the dies for the Sizzix cutter would work for my Accuquilt.  NOT!  im so disappointed... the Sizzix is too thick...

So now I have a sizzix die...and nothing to use it on.

Another Project finished and its not even 10am yet!

OK so i have some small peices of Chalkcloth left...and was trying to think of something to do with them.  So i combined TWO of my FAVORITE items i make....
My Tic Tac Toe Bags and...

My Chalk Mats....


You can't see it too well in this picture but the fabric in between the chalk cloth has been quilted. 

 It tri-folds and is ready to go!  I can make these in ANY fabric that i have.  You can also add personalization and have it monogrammed!
