Strawberries and farm animals and vinyl flexation :D

Strawberry zipper pouch - tute here :)
Here's a new to me (19 of 52 in 16) project that worked out so nicely that I decided to put it in my Christmas box as a gift :)  It actually has red seed bead "seeds" but I couldn't get a clear photo of them - they do give the bag a pretty little glitter!  I think I'll tuck strawberry lip gloss and Strawberry Shortcake stickers inside, making it a a sweet gift for a young lady :)   The tutorial for the bag, along with the strawberry applique pattern, is from Jennifer Heynen (aka Jennifer Jangles) @ :D  The little inset picture on the right, is a close-up of the strawberry zipper pull ;)

Farm finger puppets - tute here :)
Another Christmas gift finish --- this was a tiny little finish, but it was the last item I wanted to make for this specific gift, so I'm really happy to have all the pieces completed, ready to be "bagged and tagged"  :D   The pattern for these little farm finger puppets is here :)

The gift consists of a Cargo Duffle bag with some goodies tucked inside.  There's a set of farm animal hand puppets and a book to go with them ... they were posted here.  I made a drawstring bag to hold the puppets and book ... it's posted here. The finger puppets are ^^ above ;)  What do you think - is this a cute gift for a young lad?  I think (hope) so :)

Oh!  One last new to me (18 of 52 in 16) project for June - a vinyl flex frame bag!  I've made vinyl bags, and I've made flex frame bags, but combining the two - that's a first!  The tutorial is here - I have more of these cut out already - they're a great way to use up fabric scraps!  Next time around I'll put a gentle curve in the bottom - it was impossible to get the square corners completely turned RSO :D

  1. As always, your projects are so adorable!

  2. Love, love, love that vinyl pouch! Flex frames are one of my favorite things to use.

  3. You have obviously found a way to create more hours in a day than the rest of us have! Great projects,

  4. Do you make sure you have just the right zipper pull before you start a project, or do you choose the project to match the zipper pulls? A great pouch with the matching strawberry zipper pull. I think any young lad would be very pleased to receive the cargo duffle complete with finger puppets and book.

  5. They are soooooooooo cute! These make great gifts! You are so thoughtful with the finishing details! Hugs, Mickie

  6. Okay, now I'm seriously jealous about your productivity. I have do nothing but turn sprinklers on and off for six weeks--or so it seems--to get the grass growing. (I just typed seems as seams:-) You know your a sewer when...) These are all just wonderful.
