Chevron baby quilt

I am so in love with this quilt.  It's just a simple baby quilt but I think it's just too precious!  I used some aqua Riley Blake chevrons and appliqued the red words on there.  I just love the aqua and red color combination.  I got the idea for this quilt from the tutorial by V and Co. on the Moda Bake Shop website.

I had fun taking these pictures in my little town.  The people driving by probably thought I was crazy.
Have a great day!

Tote bags

I haven't had much time for sewing lately but I did manage to make a few tote bags.  A friend of mine was going on spring break with 3 boys and the road trip was 6 hours so she wanted an activity bag for each of them.  I found this easy tutorial by Angie at http://www.stitchingbystarlight.com/2012/06/box-bottom-tote-tutorial.html and changed it up just a little to suit my needs.  

I tried to make the font look like graffiti so the boys would like the bags.  Camouflage is always safe for boys so this worked out great.  The bags are big enough to hold an iPad, some books, and any other necessities they need for the road trip.

I am happy with the way they turned out.  Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of the third one I made but it's the same thing with a different name on it. 

Have a great day!
