Found this small quilt and made it larger 
With a border. 
Now it is a good size 
Baby quilt or a tv lap quilt
For someone whose legs get cold

Dunkin seems to be
Trying it out
I think he is looking for another quilt

How can I refuse this cutie?
He helps me no matter if its 4am
Or 8pm

This quilt and the one I bordered in
Green  are small enough I think to
Quilt without wtestling too much

I have so many larger projects to do
But don't want anything 
Happening to this eye

So i guess it is small project time

Sewing fun

This was a little sewing from
 my 2.5 square tin.
Love working with them
Once the blocks are done
Joining them together is
A breeze. It has a way to go.

These ufo blocks had been sewn
Together. I went thru my
Stash and picked a border.

I like the finished flimsy top

I think Dunkin liked it too. 
Maybe he is thinking it is 
For him.

I am a pattern junkie
I have 3 ring binders with them
And parts of magazines saved
I have books i bought
I have patterns i bought
I have printouts from the internet

All waiting for me to use them.

In a cleanup recently i 
organized them in one spot.  You know how you fear you have multiples? So far so good lol

And i found this 
Perfect project to make with a ufo block
I think the block they made was 10.5 inches
I like the side pockets
I may have to make one
If i do i will share a tutorial for the general concept in case you want to make one too.
Oh i wish i could stay home and sew to my hearts content.

Clean up aisle 5

Do you throw out fabric scraps?
I guess the more expensive fabric gets the less i want in the trash.
So what do you do?
Well this is a corner bookmark i made 
Using just three 4 inch squares. One is folded in half right sides out
And then one square right side up, the triangle and then one square right side down is layered.
Sew  leaving a spot open to turn
Flip and top stitch. Done 

These were wider strips
Folded in half  stitched.  Turned. Topstitched

This was a strip, a piece of batting and then really tiny pieces sewn on top
Edges trimmed and fancy stitched down 

An experiment with fabric and shipping tape to sort of laminate it

More corner ones cut

And another strip of batting ready to go. 

I think i will put them in the mailroom as little surprise take me gifts for our residents 
Lots read and share books

I have been so lucky and gifted many things that i like to pay it forward and then
Do you make little things?
How do you use your scraps?

Happy Valentine's day
Or should i say Galentines day
To my gal friends
