Finally - Sewing Time

Hello there!
I have been finding some time to craft over the last 2 weekends. Last weekend I made a great wristlet, except that the zipper was too short. I redid it this weekend and it came out great! I also made a matching key fob to go with it. The pattern is from Oh, Fransson, and I think this is the best wristlet I have made so far. During the development of her pattern, Elizabeth made wristlets in different styles (check them out, as well as her other amazing projects, on her blog) including one in silk dupioni, which I would like to try. The pattern is really well written with lots of photos, options to customize your wristlet,and the best way to install a zipper I have found so far. The fabric is Amy Butler and I loooove it. I might have to make a tote out of it, if I have enough left.

I also made this little fabric box from a tutorial found on the Pink Penguin. It's a little bit wonky, but still cute. It matches my quilt :-)

Next up, I want to make a business card case to match my wristlet, then I'm going to move on to a knit top. I also treated myself to some new patterns, I hope to make these up soon as well. Enjoy your weekend!
