Tula Pink Notepad Holder

I dusted off my sewing machine and busted this out today:

It's from this pattern at The Cottage Home.

I still love Tula Pink and everything except the linen is from her Parisville collection.

It will look more full once I have a full pad in there. This one is missing a lot of sheets!

This was a great tutorial and easy to make with scraps I had on hand. Maybe I'll make some more. Teacher gifts? Stocking stuffers?

Is anyone else switching over to this as an alternative to Google Reader? I'm bummed about Google Reader and see some bloggers I like using this so I'm trying it out!

Sew South Projects and Goodies

Oh, this sewing weekend was so much fun. Three whole days of sewing, meeting new people, chatting, eating, learning, and hanging out with creative, kind people. I am so glad I went and put the craziness of this semester on hold for a while - I needed it!

I made a few things.

This is my first metal frame clutch. I probably won't use it myself but I love it. I love how neat and professional looking it is, I love the navy chevron, and I love the pop of color on the inside:

I also tried my first ever paper-pieced block:

There are several problems/mistakes but I was actually pretty pleased for my first time. Not quite sure what happened with that purple point being so close to the edge there. Oops!

We got such amazing swag at the end of the weekend from sponsors. Here is the fabric that I received in my goodie bag:

Ahhh, the pretties. That's some Lucky Penny, Asbury, Michael Miller, and Notting Hill, among others. I will blog about other goodies (books! thread! batting!) in another post. I am so grateful for sponsors like Pellon, Oliso, Dritz, JoAnn Fabric, Fabricworm and all of the others that make this so much fun!
