window pouches

I have been busy!

I went to the quilt store to get some wool so I could embroidery a little snowman and ended up getting a kit to make some window pouches.  The only problem is they were out of the pattern to make them.

This is what they look like.  And this is the one time that I was ready to purchase a pattern so i wouldn't have to play the guessing game and they were out of it!! so I just bought the kit and went home and brainstormed.
I messed up on the first pouch so I had to use fabric from my stash.
This is what I came up with after about an hour of trial and error.
I took measurements for the size I wanted and then added some inches to the side to be able to fold over for the binding.  It actually goes really fast once you figure it out.  
When you sew using the clear plastic you will want to have material on the top and on the bottom otherwise it does not slide through your machine.




You can't really see the clear window part because....well, its clear.
But here we are! (I know i'm the worse blogger by not showing details)
but I shouldn't show details anyway because there is a pattern for it. (even though I didn't use the pattern-not by choice though) 

I'm going to make quite a few of these to give to my girlfriends. 

I'm going to make some a a little longer to put some nail files in them and maybe a few hershey kisses.

This one I'm going to give away with some perfume samples. So cute right?
I love them..I love the little window.

You can also fill them with hershey kisses...just make sure you put them where you dog can't reach!


I had put these in my work bag to take to work and my dog got into my bag and pulled this out. He tried to get to the hershey kisses and wasn't too successful....Good on my part though because the bag held up!
And here is my next project. I think it so cute to hang up during christmas time...however I probably wont have it completed till easter  :(    Thats the way Life goes.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
