Book Covers

So, now I'm on to my next covers. I made a cover for my 2010 calendar.

Then, I thought it would be fun to do a journal cover. Any you know, once you are in the groove, you might as well make two instead of one.

These were so fun to make. I loved using all my scraps to make the patchwork on the front of one of the journals. Oh, and thank you to Erin for inspiring the idea. She was working on a journal cover at the overnighter. She got my creative juices flowing!

Two New Projects

I'm trying my hand at making some baby gifts.

First is a quilted burp cloth. Not only was this fun to make, it also was a great way to practice my freehand machine quilting on a small project. It is simply a cloth baby diaper quilted to some cute fabric. Absorbant and fun. What more do you need out of a burp cloth...

My second project is a travel baby wipe container. A little fabric, trim, Mod Podge and hot glue and ta da!
