Blooming Pillow

I have been very lazy lately, sorry. On Thursday I finished this pillow (it turned sideways sorry).

The flowers from left to right: rose, daisy from a book, blue flower I made up, purple flower from a magazine, blue flower from a book.

This butterfly I got from this magazine.

For the sun I made a circle and sewed it on with rays.

Heres where I got my idea from.
Oh and when I said magazine I meant the crochet today magazine subscribe here.

Coin Purse

So today i made a little wallet for my all my change because the zipper pocket in my wallet is not big enough. It matches my purse I made yesterday. SO CUTE!!

For my first time sewing a zipper on, I think I did pretty well. I made the inside the same color as the inside of my purse. (I had money in it when I took the pictures, thats what that stuff is).

I made a little zipper pull for it too.

I followed the instructions from this book put made my own measurements.

This is the picture of the little zipper pocket from the book.

A picture of my purse and wallet together. AWESOME!!

Oh and HERES a different version of the coin purse.

The Past Week

For the past week I have made two things. First thing is this shirt refashion, the shirt had some stains on it so I wanted to cover it up with some ruffles.

For the ruffles I sewed a running stitch down the center and gathered it then sewed it on the shirt with my sewing machine.

The bottom of the shirt was too tight so I sewed a triangle on each side, two layers because the fabric is see through.

I forgot to take a picture of the shirt before I put on the ruffles but I do have a shirt that looks like it. It turned sideways for some reason.

My second project is this purse. My purse had a hole on the bottom of it so I decided to make a new one (more like I had to).

I LOVE this fabric my mom made me an apron from the same fabric except in pink.( That red spot is my knee, sorry).

For the lining I used this matching purple fabric, SO CUTE!!

I followed the pattern from 'one yard wonders' and it turned out great. I changed it a bit, I made it smaller, I didn't use ribbon for the strap and I didn't scrunch the bottom of the bag with an elastic. this is the picture from the book.

One more picture because I LOVE THIS BAG!!
