A Small Project

I had the weekend off from work, so I got to spend some quality time in my sewing room. I made this, a card case. I have been working on perfecting this for ages. It looks so simple, but it had some quirks, mainly applying the snap. However, this is as close to perfect as I have gotten. I see these all over Etsy and I knew I could make my own. I definitely plan on making more of these, both for me and for gifts. I even got a compliment on it from a salesgirl at Bed Bath and Beyond!! The fabric is from Joann's and the lining is Denise Schmidt Flea Market Fancy polka dots. Both from my stash.

I also attempted a bird from the Last Minute Patchwork Gifts book. However, like many of my first attempts, it didn't come out that good, so I'm going to try again before posting.

My next projects are a table runner and some pillows for my living room, a black and white Frenchy bag and an Artsy clutch from Bend the Rules Sewing to match my little card case. Pictures soon! Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!
