bitty bags

Today I made a bunch of Bitty Bags(as in Itty Bitty).  These little purses are my own design and I love them for quick trips to the store, shopping, and festivals. 
They are only 8"x8" and are the perfect size for carrying credit cards and cash, sunglasses,& keys.
The over the shoulder straps on these are great for hands free shopping and security.  They have a velcro fastener with a button
Constructed from upholstery fabrics in a variety of fall colors.  (Thanks Livi for the beautiful fabrics.)  Sturdy and lots of fun to carry.

Topstitch detail and fully lined. These have proved to be very popular and I am selling them for $12.00 each.  Shipping on this item is free, so if you'd like to own one of these darling purses, Email me      Pat Guilliams

What I'm Working On

This week I have finished these two purses.  They are sold, but I have lots more fabric and can make more. I just love the black and white.

I have also been working on a new quilt.  Last week I put together the dahlias with a dresden plate pattern.

Here is the finisihed motif.
And here is the finished appliqued block.  One down, 19 to go. This is going to be a big one!

The final project to work on this week is a quilt top that I am quilting for my good friend Patty. It's in the quilt frame and ready to work on. 

Hope everyone has a blessed and happy week.

Steppin' Out 2011

I had an awesome time this weekend.  Best show I have done this year!  I have a rock star daughter who helped me both days.  Without her it would have been impossible for me. I don't think I could have done it alone. 
Although it was very warm, there was a load of people coming through.  We were in Market Square Park with other new vendors to the show and the children's activities were there as well, so it was a pretty busy spot.  Especially on Sat. 
Thanks to all who stopped by and thank you for your support and interest in my work.
This week I hope to spend some time updating my blog, but today I think I'll try to rest.
