Sugar sugar

My newest sugar block is called Encourage. Encourage is a beautiful word in it self and it is a beautiful thing you can do fore someone. Maybe giving them the last push they need to make their dreams come true.

I encourage my children to read, believe they can do anything, be themselves, create and play outside and enjoy the moment. Not particularly in that order, but they are the topics I encourage them on most. And right now I am encouraging myself, because this is the 8th block and month in the sugar block club and I am still on schedule, I still love all the blocks and am looking forward to making a beautiful classic sampler of them. Never made one before. But I can do it, I can see it even in my minds eye. So, no worries. If I can, you can!

All eight blocks together

Encourage, the September block

My courage
See you soon!

Gym bag birthday gift

My niece asked for a new gym bag for her birthday. I have made one for her several years ago, but she needed a bigger one. You can find the old one here. She is a bigger girl now with bigger girls tastes. I tried a little more pursy - look using some fun bird fabric from Ikea.

I lined it with some red and white checker fabric. I didn't use fillers or batting, because both fabrics were pretty sturdy. A little pocket inside for deodorant, or hair ties.

Only one strap that I sewed on later in the folds on the side, to give it more of a purse look. I saw this method in this tutorial (on the bottom, the second variety).

And Fedde was painting on my sewing table but really wanted to be in the picture LOL. It looks more difficult than it was. You all should give bags a try!

See you soon!
