Some fun sewing projects

One of my good friends had a baby in May. It is her first baby and I decided to make some blankets for him. I love how they turned out. I did one all cotton for the warmer months and two that are one side cotton and one side flannel for when it gets a little cooler. One is 36x36 and the other two are 40x40. I hope she like them. :)

 I also made a bag for me. I LOVE how it turned out. I have had the material for a long time (2+ years). I wanted to make me something, but I wasn't sure what I wanted. I finally found this pattern over at  fish sticks and fries.  I put pockets in the inside, but didn't move them up high enough. But I think they will still work. It is the first bag that I have made. I am going to make a cash system wallet next. 

I also decided to do an i spy quilt with the scraps that I had kicking around. My mom donated some scraps from her collection. I think I will add another row or two to make it a little wider. Once I get it a little bigger, I will put some flannel on the back and batting in the middle. I think we will use it in the basement when we need a blanket to snuggle with. It's my first pieced quilt. It was fun to figure it out  and have it come together.
