Sweat Shop Sunday . . .

It was a very hot and humid Sunday here,
so I decided to stay in and sew all day.
And I really did! I didn't get distracted at all. Hehe.

Yesterday I was at the thrift shop down the street and bought 
these cute kids jeans.  Three pairs, one dollar!  Love that!
Let the up-cycling begin!

I have wanted to make one of these wine bags after seeing 
it on Pinterest.  I added some trims for the bow.
So easy!

I was also going to make another jean purse, but I cut too short,
So a jean pillow . . .
This is my pinned photo, don't know what happened to my final photo.
I just whipped stitched the top in a matching double thread.
I think it needs a belt, or maybe some decorative pins  . . . 
Another easy peasy project.

After that little warm up, it was onto the wedding quilt!
I am doing it scrappy, so my sewing table has become 
a tornado of triangles!

I cranked up the tunes and sewed for hours.

Here is the squared top.
I did piece the back too, but something needs to be a surprise
for the bride and groom!

Layering this week and let the quilting begin!

on another note . . . 
You must have seen all the hoopla about 
NYC Metro Modern Guild is hosting with a slew of sponsors.
My blog hop post is Wednesday and I have rulers and fabric to give away.

Make sure you stop back on Wednesday for a chance to win!
Hope you had a great weekend.


  1. Up scaling jeans is always fun.
    The triangles are such a great burst of color and fun.

  2. That is the cutest wine bag I've ever seen. You are so creative. And I love the triangles. I might have to put one on my list. What a great stash buster idea.
