I can check two things off my list. I got both projects done on my sewing retreat, despite leaving early because of a family emergency (all doing okay now, thankfully). My first priority was a birdie sling for my mother-in-law. It was her birthday gift...last week. She asked for a black and white bag, and I found this great Alexander Henry print called Kenyan Tea Leaves.
my first birdie. I paired it with Kona black and some Echo on the inside.
like I wanted, so it needed a sleeve of some kind. I found the adorable Japanese print at Pink Chalk. I also got a kit to make fabric covered buttons - so easy and fun. Expect many more fabric covered buttons here. :)
this tutorial by fairy face designs although I changed the size of the patchwork panels. It fits an iPhone perfectly.
