Extra Large Bingo Bag with 14 Dauber Pockets

I made this Bingo Bag with Dauber pockets for my father. He loves classic cars, bicycles, and Route 66 so I tried to incorporate all these things. There is also one pocket inside the bag. The base circle is 10 inches in diameter. The bag stands 16 inches tall. It has 14 large dauber pockets, a ton of space inside, and drawstrings to close. I used outdoor canvas fabric for the bottom inside and outside to increase the durability in this area (also to highlight more cars hehe)

Compact Jewelry Travel Pouch


I roughly followed this free tutorial as well as this one provided by Jean Truelove to create this adorable jewelry pouch with 8 individual pockets inside plus a large center. I used the colors/fabrics my daughter chose. I hope she likes it :) It cinches shut with the drawstrings to make an extremely compact (approx. 3.5 inches) way to hold tiny things without getting them mixed up. It can also open all of the way to lie flat (approx. 12 inches in diameter).

Fold-up Reusable Grocery Tote Bag

Here's another version of a foldable go everywhere (kind of like a Chico Bag) reusable grocery tote. I love the feed bag fabric but only had a tiny scrap from a thrift store. The free pattern I followed for this fold-up grocery tote is from Crafty Patti's YouTube Video

Foldable 'go everywhere' bag/tote

This is my first attempt at a foldable grocery bag. It's pretty cute and fits easily in a purse or bulky pocket. It's a little larger than a standard grocery store plastic bag. I followed the free pattern and tutorial located at Zaaberry Handmade

John Deere Tote Bag


I made this quick reusable grocery tote bag with boxed corners for my father. All fabric, including the John Deere panels were purchased from my local thrift store making this an extremely economical and upcycled bag. The final measurements are 15 inches high, 12 inches wide, and 8 inches deep (side gussets).

Cosmos Quilt


This quilt was made for my daughter and her husband as a huge wall hanging quilt. It measures 8 feet wide by 6 feet tall. This was created using In The Beginning fabrics. Specifically, two large Cosmos Panels, a Cosmos Border Strip, one small Cosmos Panel, and some fabric my daughter picked out that I cannot recall the name of. I made some traditional snail trail blocks for the corner stones. I do hope this wall quilt brings warmth and joy their home.

Bumble Bee Tote Bag

A tote bag for my daughter. She is a teacher at a local grade school. The school's teams are known as The Stingers so bees/wasps etc are the theme. The paper piecing pattern for the bumble bee giving a flower to the lady bug was purchased from Quilt Art Design
