New Jelly Rolls and Charm Squares are in!

New jelly rolls and charm squares from Moda are in! They are just beautiful and I am thinking about lots and lots of projects that I can do with them!

I've started on a new bag - It's going to be beautiful when it' s done, but it's a bit more of a challenge than I thought it would be. The instructions - written without diagrams of any kind, are not optimal. But, I WILL figure it outI also finished a bag for another precious granddaughter. I make each of the kids a bag for "stuff". Sometimes they are used to pack necessary items for day care and sometime they are just filled with important "stuff" like little cars and truck or dolls.

Kindle 2 bag - padded & lined

I am the proud owner of a Kindle 2 and felt that I needed to have some kind of a "bag" to protect it while not in use or to take it places. I knew that I needed a bag that was pretty much the size of the Kindle so that it didn't flop around in the bag. I also wanted a bag that was lined and padded to protect my investment! My first bag was pretty and it worked well, but I needed a better looking zipper.

I found Lisa's Blog that has a wonderful tutorial on doing bag zippers. I printed it out and headed back to the studio. My second attempt is great
pretty good! I even added a wrist strap. I'm not sure that I would be comfortable swinging that thing around by a strap, but it looks neat and might come in handy.

Drop me a line if you have any questions about making one of these bags for your Kindle 2!
