W.i.P. Wednesday 02

Happy Wednesday! I am working on tons of projects now, and today I finally finished six tote bags! Yay! I think I will put these Heather Bailey totes into a separate post later, but I'll give you a little preview today.

These will be kitchen towels for a friend of mine. She has some potholders that I made using this Helen Dardik fabric from her Mod Kitchen line.

I use these labels from Namemaker on my quilts and pot holders and things. I bought this ribbon from them for the first time and it looks great! I'm going to use it to wrap my floor quilts. I am participating in three craft shows this December and have a few things to do to get ready for that.

This is one of four canvases that I am currently working on. (excuse the horrible lighting, please) This Sunday I am displaying artwork at a local Starbucks. I have a lot to do to finish these, yikes!

I am making this play mat for my little cousin. I sewed the binding on today, and I just need to decide if I am hand sewing or machine sewing the binding to the front.

These are shirts for the twins that I take care of. I bought pants to match these tops. I ironed the pieces on, I just need to finish the applique. Still thinking about which stitch to use- blanket stitch, satin stitch, straight stitch? So many choices, sadly my favorite vine and leaf stitch doesn't work for these animals.

These towels will be for my family's white elephant gift exchange. Most of my family members are big Aggie fans, and when I helped my brother move in to his dorm this fall at Texas A&M I learned that they say "Howdy" to each other. Often. I just need to add some of this maroon fabric to the towels.

This is a quilt that will eventually be for sale in my Etsy shop. I sewed the binding on today and found out that I didn't make it long enough. I need to add one more piece before I can finish that up.

The other projects that I am working on are still just piles of unwashed and uncut fabric for now, so hopefully I will have made enough progress to post them next Wednesday. I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced, click the button to check it out!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Love the labels! My niece is a junior at Texas A&M, and I made her a quilt with some Texas A&M fabric that I got from Fatquarter Shop. Anyway, you probably already know this, but that burgundy is hard to match!! I have the exactly same fabric as you have in the "howdy" picture!

  2. Those shopping totes are great! I really like the fabrics you've chosen for them.

  3. Love the labels what a brilliant idea. Your totes are fantastic love the fabrics .... plus so many other project WOW.

  4. I totally need those Howdy towels! My husband is an A&M alum and syas howdy to everyone. I love it.
    You have gorgeous projects! That charming child's quilt is my favorite.

  5. Like the labels and the totes look great. At first I thought the folded up ones were a clutch purse!Nice and colorful.

  6. I love your blog. I became a follower! Erin
