So I finished these 2 crafty gems awhile ago, but I was giving them as gifts, so I didn't want to post any photos until I gave them away. They were gifted last weekend, so now I can show off :)
I'm so proud of Carol's Bookshelf Quilt. It was my first official quilting project. I was so nervous about finishing it, I started and completed 2 baby quilts in the mean time. Here is the finished product.
I added some titles to the books, like her wedding date, the date her son was born, where she went to high school, what she majored in college...and if I didn't added a title, I used fabric that represented parts of her...like OU, golfing, skiing, etc.
I also made my friend Helra a tote bag. She mentioned to me she likes the black and whie damask print and soft pink. Well, I had this super cute tote bag pattern that I found on Pinterest! so here is Helra's Tote Bag
It came out super cute :) I told her it's no Louis Vuitton, but I would be more than happy to sew in LV :) She was happy with a CS instead.
I love these girls and was more than happy to make them something. Don't mistake all this as a thoughtful gesture, it's secretly a little selfish too. I know that when they get it out they will be forced to think of me, lol.
