Sewing Projects from May

 I posted awhile back about making quillows for our DC trip. I had 6 cut out but only finished 3 before we had to leave. This one is Amy's, these squares were from a fabric square swap from 5 years or more that I did on Sewing Mama's forum. I didn't want to spend any money and was trying to use my stash when I found a drawer full of 6.5 inch squares. The instructions were pretty easy to follow but I made a few mistakes before I got it right. I should have taken a picture of it folded into a pillow but you'll just have to use your imagination.

 I stayed up till the wee hours in the morning before the trip working on this bag. I used batik strips and had all the edges ragged. It worked pretty well for a tote bag but I didn't like the size for a purse. My old purse/diaper bag has seen better days, I blogged about it here, it's three years later and the material has worn off the straps and some of my squares have holes in the top layer.It has been a wonderful purse/diaper bag. My husband use to always say your purse, I'd say diaper bag but it was both for awhile. Now to get busy making a new purse.
