Little Projects

My granddaughter, Scarlett told me she wanted to make a purse.  This is the first project for her.  So we picked a pattern, found some material and she helped cut it out.  I like her fabric choices.
Okay, admittedly, we didn't get very far on her project.  But she has a short attention span for things like this and ran off to play.

Violet, liked the sew up a purse idea so we also picked a pattern, ironed the fabric, cut it out and sewed on
it a bit.  Then her Daddy came to pick her up and she had to go home.
The back side is in a different fabric.
Now I have to cool my jets and wait for them to come back over so that we can finish sewing these projects up.

I was thinking of making myself an eyeglass case.  The one I have is just not fun enough. Several years ago I made up several eyeglass cases as gifts for my sisters.  I had made several so that they could have their pick. When I was looking for the purse I had made to show Scarlett and found the eyeglass case!  I had forgotten all about having an extra one.  So now I have a new one for me.  I like when things work out like that.
I even lined it with a different fabric.
So nice to have something new and pretty for myself -and something I made myself.  WhooHoo! I feel like I hit the jackpot!
Happy Stitching

  1. Well I think Scarlett and Violet are very lucky to have such a wonderful grandmother! And soon they'll have adorable purses. Very pretty glasses case.

  2. Sound like a perfect day for grandma and two little girls...The purses will be finished --Kasey and I are starting to work on a quilt for her new baby. Isn't being a grandma one of our greatest blessings!

  3. It is really nice to spend time with our GD and teach them to sew. Even if it takes a few goes to get the project finished

  4. Great starts for both girls, and I love your eyeglass case!

  5. That is really fun! I bet it was hard to not finish the purse for her while she was away! I know it would be for me. Great eye glasses case!

  6. Pretty glasses case - I have the same material but in different colours with dark backgrounds - in red and in dark green. The gold in it makes it so girly, perfect when you make something for yourself!
    Love Muv
