You know how it is … Christmas and New Years are exciting… we make bold plans… then life settles into a new normal… or back to the old normal…
Well… I have several NEW normals one of them being my “bag of all things”…
It was inspired by a Moda Bake Shop recipe I knew I couldn’t tackle because of the zipper… so my bff Connie stepped in … mini charms in hand… and made this for me for Christmas 🙂
Here is the recipe…

I emailed the author to let her know my friend made her pouch and I LOVE it! She responded quickly and has a fun blog.
Now for more of the details 🙂
She started out by choosing some mini charms… (2 1/2″ squares)
And decided on their placement…
All this as she recovered from surgery!!!
Then she hand quilted them once sewn together 🙂
Connie said she followed Julie’s recipe… she said it went together easily and she had no problems with the zipper (my fear! lol )
|check out the cute yardage she used for the inside 🙂|
|The pendant she added “made for you” 🙂|
|The key fob “K” I added 🙂|
|The back side is quilted with a different pattern LOVE IT!|
So as I enjoy this cute little handmade luxury item (it holds my Vera Bradley wristlet and my phone when I go anywhere)… I continue stitching feathers…
I am on #12 now… and moving forward slow but sure… my honey is repainting the kitchen the same gray as the house is instead of the peach that clashes that I picked out… so gray house it is!
Have a wonderful slow stitching sunday! Do you do other crafty things with your handquilting skills???
