I Didn't Sew This One

Nope. God did. But I did make the gown. *wink*
Our sweet little Kyndall Hope was born last evening. She's perfect in every way and we are beyond excited to finally meet her. God did an amazing job, didn't He?!
Big sister Klaire wasn't interested in her much. *grin*
I can't believe Klaire is almost two and Kyndall is finally here. God is good!!
And just so I don't slight our LMW, here is a pic of him playing in the snow we received this week.
This stinker big boy will begin kindergarten in the fall. Where has the time gone?!

Wallet

I didn't intend to complete a project this morning, but I got started and was finished before I realized it. Love when that happens! I made myself a new wallet/clutch/whateveryouwanttocallit today.
It matches the purse I just made and it was easier than I thought!! I used this tutorial from Fort Worth Fabric Studio and added a couple of my own little extras.
It has places for cards, change, and $ bills/checkbook, but I wanted a pocket for my cell phone, so I added that to the backside, along with a little flap to keep it secure.
I also added a little fabric hoop so I could tie a strap onto it and carry it alone. I used fusible fleece for stability and instead of using magnetic snaps, I just used velcro to keep it closed, (since I had it on hand.) The button is a decorative addition.
I hope I like it as well as I think I will. You just never know with things like this, but I'm excited to use it and see how it goes.

Weekend Work

I finished Princess Klaire's quilt this weekend. I love how it turned out.

I also made up some little bags. They can be used to hold cosmetics or cell phone/tablet chargers, just whatever. 

I'm happy to be getting started on Christmas gifts already. I've never started so early, and I have high hopes of getting many of them done way before December.
