Whoo Hoo!

I am wooting because I got another tutorial featured on Tipnut this week in the Crafter's Medley: 30 Neat-O Projects for June! There are some other pretty Neat-O projects there too! I am especially in love with this little Ruffled Clutch Bag. The tutorial is fantastic and I have to try it soon!

My little girl's 4th of July Tiered Sundress tutorial also got picked for Teach Me Tuesday at The Girl Creative's blog. Thanks Diana! She has such great Linky Party's over there. I love to spend my morning coffee time browsing through all the wonderful and creative ideas. So many projects, so little time...

I have also been busy. I am on another stashbuster challenge so here is a little "trunk show" of what I came up with from fabrics closest to the top of the piles.

This Michael Miller Orchid Spa drawstring raggy might be my favorite of the bunch! Really came out cute and I have enough fabrics to do a few more.

A Shabby Raggy Rose tote bag with a little vintage chenille scattered in. This one is lined with a pretty green damask and has one large inside pocket and one tiny outside pocket.

Another fun 'tween raggy with drawstring top.

Not a very good picture of this Drink Pink Martini Time tote bag, but I didn't feel like turning the lights back on and trying to shoot it again. Anyway, it is a smallish 6 pocket shoulder bag, also has 2 inside pockets for organizing all your happy hour essentials.

A big roomy beach or travel bag, 6 outside pockets and 3 large inside pockets. And I love the lining! The fabrics are all Moda American Primer. The bottom and straps are double layered canvas in navy blue, super sturdy for carrying lots of stuff!

I have a lot more planned for this week, I might make a dent in the stash if I keep up at this rate at least 'til the end of the year.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the last toe bag. Can you tell me what pattern you used? What a lot of bags you got done. You sure have bbeen productive!

  2. Thank you Brenda! I make all my own bag patterns. The tote bag is my own version of the 6-pocket bag pattern you can find online.

  3. Wow, Doni, you have been busy! You're putting me to shame. Love all of your bags, especially the first one. I've been asked to do a show in November, so I need to get busy "busting my stash" to make some inventory for that. Got some special orders I have to get out of the way, and finish up my porch cushions, then I'll spend the rest of the summer working on that!

    BTW, I still have to post pics of my wallet I made from your great little pattern. Hope to get that done before the week's out! :o)
