Another Minion.......

Finally I found a yellow T shirt and I was able to do this T Shirt for my grandson Cooper.  It was a quick and easy Machine Embroidery Design and I found the design here.  Another shirt to get into mail.

Fat Quarter Bag.........

I  am loving this bag made from 5 fat quarters.   I don't usually make bags but this one caught my eye.
The 4 fat quarters are cut into 10 1/2 inch by 9 1/2  inch rectangles.  They are all joined together and folded in half and you have the bag  and the lining in one.   On the front half I ironed some iron on pellon.  I quilted the rectangles just from corner to corner. With the 5th fat quarter you make the handles and the binding.  You then bind the top of the bag and the 2 sides.  You fold the bag till you get the shape you like and stitch up where the ends of the bag  meet, making sure you leave enough of the top layer to fold down and sew the button on.   The bottom of the bag is then sewn accross and  about 4 1/2 inches from the bottom corner of the bag, make a triangle and stitch accross to shape the bottom of the bag.   Make the handles and stitch on.   A very quick and easy project. I think I will keep this one as I usually give away the things I make.

Folded Work......

My first attempt at folded work.  I think this one is called a Pineapple. Not sure what I will make out of it. I guess I could make some cushions, placemats or even a table runner.  I used some scraps and managed to get three blocks made but don't have any of the spot left.   I found it fairly easy as you have to follow the pattern markings of how to lay the fabric...  It is something that I would do again, maybe I would try something a bit more difficult.
