Hi everyone, welcome! I am so excited to be a part of this blog hop today! If you have never been here before, welcome! My name is Tanyia. I am 37 and a stay at home mom of three amazing albeit annoying girls lol. My blog is about the amalgamation of crafts and things I do to keep me from having to do housework basically lol.
I wanted to say I am so happy I came across the Sew We Quilt blog, hosted by Katherine and being a great cheerleader...especially since it was my first blog hop like this ever! I am so ready to find another hop that interests me and try again as well :)
Also, thank you to Madame Samm for giving us each not only the pattern but seriously amazing step by step directions that even I could follow! lol. I have never ever made a coin purse before and was seriously intimidated but look at that preview pic above! I had to try! :)
Anyway, this whole experience was fun... well, now looking back on it anyway! lol
Here is what I made:
I made 4 of them and my daughter (the adult one lol) made 2. There was many a thumb pricking during the matching up of the WAY uneven edges, there was many a swear word during the trying to figure out how on earth to sew that wierd shape without sewing it to itself lol, and there was a broken needle...or two during trying to figure out how hard I could yank that thread to really secure it to the frame! lol. If you could have seen us you would have laughed hysterically.
However when I was finished I was so enamored with the finished product that I went out and bought more frames, and am thinking of doing more even now! I am totally in love with how adorable they are. Now, if only I could figure out how to hide that dang knot at the end.
These are the first two I did! See why I needed to do a couple more!I absolutely love them. The green one is going to my mom for Christmas and the red one to a friend.
These two I made for my girls and I did different insides so they could tell them apart ... other wise there would be WW3 if one thought the other had hers! *eye roll* I love how happy and vibrant these are and I used scrap for these which I absolutely love that I could do! (Never mind the yellow thread poking out of the one on the right lol there was a bit of a snafoo there)
These two are the two my daughter made. I think she did a great job, it was her first time as well. She kinda hated it while doing it and I keep urging her on and when she was done she LOVED them and said she wants to make about a hundred more! lol
Now, I have an adorable charm pack of Mary Engelbreit fabric with ONE HUNDRED squares that I would love to share with one of you. I will send anywhere, US or International. All you need to do is leave a comment and that will enter you. I will draw a winner on the 14th, the day after the hop ends, if you are a no-reply blogger PLEASE leave your email or I will need to give it away to someone else.
SO much fun! Thank you SO much for coming by commenting, it means a lot to me! Also if you decide to follow me, let me know, I would love to follow you back and get to know you as well!
