Sewn gifts delivered ;)

Patchwork Zipper Pouch

Now that I've heard that these gifts have
been delivered to the recipients,
I can share them here! Woo Hoo!

Patchwork Zipper Pouch

This zipper pouch was for my friend Kerry
of verykerryberry. If you like fabrics with writing
and little animal prints, you'll definitely enjoy
seeing her creations over her blog.
Everything she makes is just so cheerful,
interesting, and vintage-ish! I love it!

Patchwork Zipper Pouch

Kerry and I have the very similar taste of fabrics,
so picking out fabrics to make this pouch
was a lot of fun, and knowing that she will
probably like it as much as I do was the
best part of making it ;) Kerry is having a
giveaway over here and she has a
cool tutorial for a teeny tiny pincushion
which I've been wanting to make!

tabletop quilt

This is a tabletop quilt sewn for my Scottish
friend AJ who shares the same birthday, July 23rd
with me! She was patient to wait to open the package
until yesterday, but not me. I received a really
nice birthday gift from her (which I will share
with you guys next time) about a week before our
birthday and couldn't help opening it immediately
after it was delivered. Sorry AJ for being
a bit naughty, hehe! I just couldn't help it.

I asked her favorite colors and selected
fabrics based on them; green, teal, orange,
chocolate brown, and lime green. Can you see
how there is a birthday cake in the middle?
That is my favorite part! I was not very
sure if she would be able to find a use
for this quilt but she kindly let me know
that this will be a cover for her overlocker. Yay!


The last thing I want to share with you
today is this coaster. I made six of these
for my friend Hilda in Venezuela to say
thank you for asking me to make lots of
things for her and her mom and for being
super patient to give me as much time
as I needed which was like forever!
Thank you, Hilda!


I made 8 of these coasters but these two
didn't turn out as nice as other six,
so I decided to keep the two. I really
like the strong vivid colors together
and I think it looks prettier with a mug on.

Thank you for letting me share my
creations again. Have a great Sunday ;)
