More Birthday Pressents

YES, ANOTHER BACKPACK! Can't stop making them, check out the Flicker Pool on Toddler Backpacks that I have been contributing to. (see I'm not the only one)

Found this adorable monkey pattern super cute right? Only problem is I need a boy, so....I took an old sweater of my sisters and used it for the body sleeves and socks for the monkey, the pattern called for a hat dress and shoes, we just left that out, A ball cap would have been cute but I was under a time crunch. This is an easy to follow pattern and I will be making more of these cuties, since my 3 littles were eyeing it the whole time I was working on him.

Happy Birthday to my nephew!

 my latest duffle addition.

After I got this books I have been making Duffle Bags like mad!

I made the bottom duffle first for my daughter with Amy Butler Garden Maze and Happy Dot, then I received an order for the Novaue Trees and Martini, and I just finished the Joel Dewberry Deer Vally/ Antler Damask, Archetectural Barnwood and Lodge Lattice, so far I think this is my favorite. And I have fabric in the closet waiting to be used in my next duffle.

Give her bags a try they are simple and straight foreward patterns.
