Misc. Projects, Mini Quilts, Baby Quilt, Etc.

To my surprise, the monthly mini quilt continues this year at Sew Can She.

That's what the Sweet Flora Mini Quilt is supposed to look like, this is mine.  I mistaken thought that the 1 inch hexagons were 1/2 inch, and so I had lots of empty space.  I may make another, as my great-granddaughter got baptized this weekend, and I gave this one to her.

A young couple we know are having a baby boy any day, this and the burp cloths that I recently made are for them.

The back of the mini quilt.  

For another younger great-granddaughter.  The pouch is leftover fleece on the outside and the tote bag is made from valentine tea towels that I got yesterday at the Dollar Store.  When she saw my daughter's journal cover etc., she wanted one, too.  

My granddaughter requested a tote to use when she takes one of my young great-grandsons to day care.  I also shared my link on Sew Can She.  Lots of projects to look at and read about there.

More of the Same!

Burp cloths.  That is a little different.

I thought I'd use a ringed notebook in my purple cover, but the cover was too small.  Since I had already bought the notebook and fillings, I made myself a little bigger green one.  I really like green and purple together.

Mine and my friends pencil rolls and pouches.

More Journal Covers, Etc.

Little brother needed some, too.  

Pencil roll for little brother.  Extra big slots for little fingers and big pencils.

I think they need tissue holders, too.

Mama needs some too, I added a purse, too.

For the kids, grandmother and mother (my daughter and granddaughter-in-law).

For my daughter, who loves red and butterflies.

For my friend, who used to be my visiting teacher from church.  I also made key fobs for my new visiting teachers.

For one of my favorite people, me.

My grownup granddaughter requested a smaller one, so hers is the same size as the girls.  I think I'm done now, at least for awhile.  I also added this to Sew Can She's, Show Off Saturday, there are lots more finishes and projects there.

Party Favors Finished

Journals, pouches and key fobs.  The girls are only 8, but I saw an idea to connect the key fob to itself and use it for hair rubber bands.

These were the tutorials I started with and then made several changes to to make them fit my purpose.  They were a good starting point.

Pencil roll.

We got our dog when she was adult, just recently got her puppy picture.  Adorable.

Party for Great-Granddaughter

My great-granddaughter is having a party for a few friends.  I'm making some favors.  Here is the first one, I still have tote bags, tissue holders and coin purses or small wallets to make.  This was the first of the 6 I made.

The second.

Three and Four.

Five and Six

The original idea came from Sew Can She, which directed me to Clover and Violet's tutorial.  I made a change or two, but mostly used the instuctions.  I've added a link to Sew Can She's Show off Saturday.
I'm past due taking down the tree.  I'm going to miss it.
