Sassy you Librarian Top


I made this Sassy Librarian top this summer & I've worn it a ton .
I took the Sassy Librarian class on Craftsy . My first class - it took a little while to get used to the format , but I really enjoyed the class & process. The top still has some fitting issues , but it was just supposed to be my muslin .  I have plans for a short sleeved version - soooooon ! 
Time to stop craft sewing & get back to garment sewing !
LOVE my Berninas ��

Pumpkin Mug Rugs



I loved making these pumpkin mug rugs for friends, family, nieces & nephew . They are addicting to make !  Pickle pie designs - all done in the hoop & a great way to use up left over fabric .

More Snap Happy bags



Snap Happy bags are very addictive . I made these for so e friends . They go very quickly ! Just wish I would make up a bunch so I didn't always have to make them at the last minute :)   They are also a great way to use up scraps .
Pictures coming soon of my second Belcarra & Sassy Librarian blouse .

Belcarra cotton top



This is a Sewaholic Belcarra cotton top . It went together very easily . I'm not sure still if I'm a big fan of cotton tees. I'm so used to knits & how  they fit my body in a more flattering way. I do like the fabric - it's -April Rhodes - Arizona . I'm trying to stretch my sewing skills as well as what I like & what looks good on me . Its a work  in progress .


As you may be able to tell it is my first trip to Dean & Deluca . - great place & yummy things
