A smocket from Alicia's free pattern. Sewn from a vintage sheet, lined in white cotton (with a matching pink pocket).

wrist cuffs

Using the very last of my fat quarter scraps: three wrist cuffs.

This was all that was left of my fat quarter.

fabric ball

A fabric ball for the baby with a jingle bell inside. (From this tutorial, using my fat quarter.)

doll apron

In an attempt to use up every scrap of my fat quarter, I made a doll apron.

hand towel apron

A waist-apron made from a thrifted vintage hand towel. Dark brown bias tape is sewn across the top of the apron and is used for the ties.

zippered pouch & card holder

A zippered pouch and mini-card holder using the rest of the fat quarter. The card holder was based on this tutorial.

head scarf

A head scarf for a little girl. It is trimmed in bias tape with a bit of elastic around the bottom of her head for a nice fit. This was made using my fat quarter.


This bag was made following Linda's Lotus Bag tutorial. The outside fabrics are white quilting cotton and Alexander Henry's "lemon blossom." The lining is the white cotton with a "lemon blossom" pocket. The handles are leather saddle straps, which Linda sells in her etsy shop.

onesie and softie

An appliqued bird onesie and a bunny with ribbon ears and tail for Sawyer (bunny was made from my fat quarter).

apron & tote

For a little niece's birthday: a flowered tote and a Martha Stewart kitchen towel apron from this tutorial.
