Wine Bottle Gift Bag for a Moscato Rosé

I purchased this Jacob's Creek Moscato Rosé as a gift and used some floral quilting fabric from my stash to make this pretty gift bag using the Player 2 Patterns "Wine Bottle Gift Bag" pattern.  

This pattern sews up in under an hour and I will be using it again a lot at Christmas time for more gifts.

5 Button Pillow in a Winter Print

My mom picked out the fabric and the buttons for this pillow, and I helped her make it.

We will display this pillow over the upcoming Christmas holidays, because of the wintery theme.

McCall's M7358: Leopard Print Top with Sash

I made this top in the summer, and I've worn it a few of times already.  I got a lot of compliments on it when I wore it.

I finally got around to taking a couple of photos for my blog.  I love the sash and the silky leopard print fabric worked out well because it has a little bit of body to it.

I hadn't made very many McCall's patterns before, so I wasn't sure how my experience would be, but the pattern was simple to understand and everything worked out well.

Reversible Grocery Bag in Cotton Prints

Here is the Player 2 Patterns Reversible Grocery Bag with a floral print on one side, and an abstract print on the other.  I made this bag for my mom for grocery shopping at the local market. Now she can shop in style.

Here are a couple of pictures of the Reversible Grocery Bag with some delicious snacks and some fresh produce.

Burda 6461: Rick Rolling Trench Coat

I was inspired to make this Burda coat by my favorite Rick Astley song, "Never Gonna Give You Up".  In the video Rick shows off his 1980's style in a tan trench coat with black pants and a black mock turtleneck.

I made my coat out of a tan bouclé Manchester wool fabric, and updated the look with my black booties.

I Rick Rolled all of my friends with this image of me and Rick Astley.
