I finally listed some small zipper pouches in my newly opened etsy shop I'm happy it's finally open.

This week I finished a card/mail organizer. The pockets were paper pieced from a pattern in Love Quilting Magazine. The paper pieced shirt pocket was made from a pattern in Patchwork 318. I used a cute post it note fabric for the background that my mom gifted me last month. I really love this and can't wait to use it to organize all my thank you cards!

Here is my newest quilt, the Tree of Life Quilt. It is my modern interpretation of a traditional Navajo rug design. I paper pieced many of of the elements and machine pieced the top of the quilt together. It was quilted by my friend, the talented Andrea Harris of Urban Quiltworks, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It will be on display at the Calgary Stampede 2014 Western Arts and Crafts Showcase.

I finally made a Noodlehead Cargo Duffle, so much fun! I made some mistakes like pre quilting all my pattern pieces before actually reading the whole pattern. Make sure you read the pattern so you understand that it's sort of a quilt as you go project. But I made a few adjustments and still have a result that I love. The patchwork was some improvisational piecing I did and wasn't sure what to do with. It was actually the exact size I needed for this project. I added some Mirror Ball to the mix and I love the result!
I used grey Kam Snaps for the closures and left the coverall zipper (purchased at JoAnn Fabrics) the way it was instead of turning the zipper pulls around to the center since I was lazy and don't have pliers for the job.
This is a free pattern on the Robert Kaufman site or use the link through Noodlehead!
Here is the roadtrip case I made, a pattern from Noodlehead. I think it's so cute in the washi fabric! I just need to add kam snaps to it and it will be finished! I'm going to buy long clear cases to use in the long pockets for all my sewing odds and ends.

How delightful is this little quilted pouch? I finally found the wavy stitch button hiding on my machine and decided to make this. I saw a friend on instagram mention that this pouch fits her instax mini perfectly. And since I've been dying to travel with mine, I need a case!
The pattern is from Pink Stitches and doesn't call for batting but I quilted each piece (lining and main) with batting so there would be extra padding for the camera. So basically there are two layers between the fabric. It makes the bag sturdy and soft!
I added a large denim pocket to the back of the bag to hold extra film, and only made a small pocket for the inside since I am not planning to keep much inside with the camera. I used a KAM Snap for the closure instead of velcro. I hope you enjoyed my project! Here is a link to a flickr showcasing the other bags made from this pattern!
