Things I did @ Girl's Camp!

This is my sewing station while away at Girl's Camp. I had the whole week to work on some projects that needed to get done. The theme of this years camp was "It's a Jungle Out There", so my machine fit in perfectly. This is the first project I decided to dig into. I ran out of orange thread to do the casing on front and I just haven't gotten around to finishing it here at home. It's going to be one cute bag though when it does. I want to use this one for a fall bag and that will be here before you know it. So I must hurry, huh!

I pieced together this little baby quilt for the shop. It's called "Little Man" from the Simplify book from Camille Rosekelly. Easy, peasy to make. I have cut kits for these if your interested. The fabric is Michael Miller.These next bags were so simple to make. The name is the Peek a Boo bag and they are a great little bag for gadgets, make up, school supplies, treats. Just about anything. I have never sewn on the vinyl before and it was a breeze. I don't know why I have waited so long to make them. These are going to be in the fall line up of bag classes at the Corn Wagon. I believe this is the class for November. Won't they make great Christmas gifts? Watch for more details on the class.

I'm so happy how this quilt turned out. I took it with me to bind and I achieved that one afternoon sitting under the shade visiting with the girl's. For reference it's made from the Peace on Earth Woven's from 3 Sisters, that was out almost 4 years ago. My 75% off find in St. George one winter.
The back is a solid tan that I had in the stash. I wanted something simple so the quilting I had picked out would show good. Ramona quilted it with an all over bandana paisley. Love her paisley's!And this is how it looks on the trailer bed. This was the whole purpose of this quilt. Can you believe I actually had a purpose this time. I have charms packs leftover and I think they are shouting pillow shams. There's one more thing to add to the list.
And the last item completed is another bag. This is the Big Shopper by Whistle Pig Designs. It will also be in the bag class line up. Watch for it in December. It's a very roomy bag for all of those sewing projects or as the name suggests, shopping!There are pockets all the way around the inside and the draw string closure tab is optional.

So lot's of projects checked off the list during the week. Now if there were about 5 or 6 more I would be "SEW" happy. One of the first ones done, the baby quilt I did is already back from the quilter and bound.

It's got Moda Cuddle Soft on the back and I bound it in the stripe. What is it about stripes? I just love them for bindings. I just know any quilt bound in a stripe is going to be cute.
And here's proof of another one. Happy Sewing everyone. It's good to be back in the swing of things.
