I was very excited when Joy picked this fabric. I had been showing it to lots of clients hoping that someone would select it. It is called Fleur Tattoo by Michael Miller. My only wish is that it said Amy across the top. As always it has 6 roomy pockets, a vinyl protective bottom and a key fob. I've also added some additional top stitching to help give it a more "finished" look.

This really is my favorite blanket of all time. It is hard to really say that because I have made quite a few. I used a super soft and cuddly brown fabric paired with a dinosaur print flannel. I then embroidered a dinosaur to match along with Emmett's name. The orange and brown must have been inspired by the season change.
This cute bag was ordered for a new mom that loves owls. It has a deep brown background and I choose orange as the accent color. I used orange for the embroidery, pockets and key fob tie. I also made a changing pad using the same owl fabric.

I know that a mother should never say that she has a favorite but this bag might make me break that rule. I loved the finished product. I have been showing this fabric to many clients, always hoping that someone would pick it and finally someone did. I used Michael Miller cotton Brown Carnival Blossom with Michael Miller Jet Brown on the outer bag and Michael Miller Breeze Vintage Dot for the lining. If a bag could have a personality I would say that it is playful and happy. I hope it's new owner feels the same way.
As with all my bags I added a magnetic closure, key fob and vinyl lining on the bottom.

I always tend to gravitate towards brown and green. This client gave me NO direction but simply said you pick everything. So it wasn't a huge surprise that these fabrics were the winners.
I received this comment about this bag and had to share:
"I ended up flying to MD last minute this past weekend & was able to give my granny her b-day gift myself this morning, & the bag you made was a ridiculous hit! Before I even gave it to her I saw a strange yellow bag with the old "Mason's Great Granny" cut out of her old (worn beyond recognition) bag & stapled to it because she loved it so much she wanted to continue using it as much she could. Little did I realize how perfect the timing was for the replacement bag! My grandma about DIED when she opened her present & saw the NEW bag - the colors were perfect, the plastic bottom was perfect - she adores the keychain holder & the snap - this is just PERFECT & she is in heaven. With everything going on with my gramps, this has proven to be a lovely, perfect, unexpectedly wicked distraction - and it's so damned perfect! Thank you so much!"

I can't believe that my last post here was in January! Life has been busy... but give me a break.
My pledge is to be better at posting my projects.... shhhh... I'm secretly taking orders. Don't you dare spread that around. I've been enjoying a minute to breath.
