sewing projects

Just finished up a marathon of sewing projects...all for a special little girl...

Project #1
Tote Bag
I've made this tote bag soooo many times!  I love it!  Super easy and a great gift idea!
You can find the tutorial HERE. I usually do not make them reversible, but I do put coordinating fabric on the inside and I also added interfacing to the handles to make them sturdier.
 Project #2
Crayon Roll
These things can be a pain in the patoot!  Sometimes it's just easier to leave it to the experts and buy one.  My favorite shop for these is Lil B Designs.  I have purchased from her before and they are awesome!  The party is in about a week or so so I made one...my second.  It turned out pretty good.  This is my favorite tutorial HERE for crayon rolls.  And the pics...

 Project #3
Applique Tees
I purchased my applique templates from Applique Art By Kim by etsykim.  There are a ton to choose from.  The tees turned out okay...the first one I did wrong (the camper trailer)- it still turned out fine but I didn't read the directions closely.  Then I tried stitching around the pieces with my sewing machine- uh...way too hard for me with the curves.  So the second one I did the applique correctly and hand stitched with embroidery thread around the outside of each piece.  More time consuming yes, but better looking in my opinion.
