Small Project Review

I intended to start another quilt last month, but kept putting it off and working on other, smaller, projects.   Here are the fun sewing projects I finished in the last month (darning pants and making curtains not included here):

The front--another ticker tape doll quilt.  My son helped pick out fabric again (it was for a friend of his), and kept giving me pieces of white, saying how cool it was.  So I used one for the label.

Back after being bound and washed.

Leappad2 case for my son's 3rd birthday.  I mostly followed this tutorial, but added a zipper for the top closure.  I actually made two, but the first was too small for a leappad with a gel skin.  So I gave that one to a friend and made a second about an inch larger.

I also used two layers of batting and quilted the inside and outside.

Forgot to get a photo of the inside--it's plain grey with random zigzag quilting.

Another doll quilt, made from a quilt block I found at a thrift store.  I added the borders.  It was a fun little quilt to make!

The back turned out cool too!

The purple border quilting was inspired by a Sew Kind of Wonderful pinterest find.  Clearly I need to practice it some more!

An pinafore for my 10.5 month old.  I followed this tutorial, it was a really fast and easy project.  And so cute!

I love the cross-over back.

Double sided.

I love that she will be able to wear it as a top in another year or so--a big selling point for actually using some of my  favorite fabrics!

So, I've been keeping busy, and having fun.  It's nice to be able to check off these little projects.  I still plan to start another quilt (or two) soon, but am waiting for two different fabric orders.  I wish they would come today!
