Stacks of Tote Bags

I finally finished these 6 tote bags. I had the worst time with skipped stitches with these. It was because of the uneven bulk at the seams and around the handle holes. I had to use my hump jumper to get around the problem. I used thicker than ususal fabric this time. Linking up to
Finish it up Friday...
Some of the ladies at work want one of these bags.

I told them I would bring them several to choose from.

Summer Flag Pillow

I literally just threw this together in 2 hours for Finish it up Friday. I had this idea in my head since I bought this fabric last month. I even told the fabric cutter that this is what I was going to make out of this fabric. The stars are little star fish.

This is the back of the pillow. I googled Beach Huts. Then I went on pinterest yesterday and pinned a slew of them. So I raw edge appliqued this to the back and the flag is two sided and flaps. I want to make another pillow with 3 beach huts in a row. That might be my next project. Linking to

Teacher Thank you card and envelope

I still make the occasional card. Tomorrow is my son's last day of school. I whipped this up for one of his teachers. My husband bought him a gift card since he was his mentor for the last 2 years. He is leaving that position and going to another school.  We are going to miss him.
