One of my new favorite projects are fabric flowers. They are super easy with minimal sewing. There are a million tutorials on the Internet. The pattern that I used for the bottom picture is found here. For the top picture I embroidered a simple design onto felt and then attached the different layers together. My next project is a new tote for myself and I'm planning a huge flower on the front.
For this blanket we wanted to use the same style as the shabby chic blanket but with a brighter pink and green. I found this collection of fabrics by Moda and loved the variety of designs while staying in the same colors. My favorite fabric is the fourth one from the bottom... if you look closely it is of peacocks. Not your typical baby blanket but I thought that it worked with this design.

I decided to try something new with this latest placemat purse. I used the lining to make the top border. I lengthened the straps that hold the handles so they would also hold the ribbon in place. I included three different colors of ribbon so that G could change the color to coordinate with her outfit. I thought this would be a very versatile way to change your bag with your mood.
