A Little of This and a Little of That

Hello Everyone,

I bet you thought I was done with Kaffe? Not yet. I am definitely on a Kaffe binge. Love it!

A while ago, Stephanie asked me to be one of her pattern testers. I jumped at the chance because I just admire her bags and creativity. Some of you may have seen this post earlier this week.

Yes, I tested her Prickly Pear bag pattern. A dream to piece together and really cute to boot!! A must have for any bag lover. So you guessed it my version was done in Kaffe fabrics.



I added this beautiful vintage flower button.


Quilted it with a monochromatic variegated thread.


A quarter inch on either side of the seam.


Used a beautiful blue rick rack.


Polka dot Kaffe on the back and front flap.


To make this one gorgeous bag!

Once her pattern hits her Etsy shop, hurry and get one. I guarantee you will love it. I am ready to make more.

On another note, I recently won a giveaway from Vickie and she sent me this great little charm pack of Wonderland. Just beautiful colors and patterns. Thank you Vickie!


I also had won a giveaway from Tina a while back and she sent me one of her handmade quilt block pins that she sells on her Etsy shop. I also received this wonderful luggage tag, notice it is made of Kaffe fabrics. Thanks Tina!


I know many of you are probably wondering about my new kitty. Here you go, a picture of little Pavi, with my big boy Rolo napping on the window seat. What a life!


Next week, you can expect my September Newsletter to be mailed out and a NEW podcast up for the listening crowd. I hope you all enjoy your weekend and have time for a little sewing. If you would like some more quilty inspiration, check these out!!

Oh, and go visit Terri at Sew Fantastic, she is celebrating and having a fantastic giveaway!

Until Next Time,

Great post of things I love! Love the bag, and what you won, oh! I am jealous of a new kitty being accepted so quickly. I have a "queen bee" who is resistant to any interlopers, any tips?

Hi Jackie,
Love this purse...so cute. I don't own any Kaffe, but the more I see of yours, I just might go shopping. That however, would break my rule of using up the fabric that I already have!!
Talk to you soon,
~Karen~
ps love your kitties too. We have one and she's nuts!
