Small Bags/Purses

Recently I have been making small bags/ purses just large enough for a cell phone, keys, and maybe lipstick/ chap stick with a pocket for credit card/ money.  The finished bags measure approx 6 in wide/ 8 in tall.  Some with removal straps and some w/ adjustable straps.  

This one is going to be a birthday present for a young preteen niece.

This one I mailed to a friend.

These two were made for a niece and her daughter (my grand-niece). 

This one hasn't been designated for anyone as of yet.

The Cross Fabric Postcard

I was inspired to make this postcard by the view I get of the cross of a Church I run past on one of my usual routes.  I had been thinking it would make a nice small quilt or postcard for a while now.  I finally sat down and did the postcard on Easter Sunday afternoon.   Here is the view that inspired the postcard.

Here's the finished postcard.  It measures 6 in x 8 in.

Small Log Cabin Scrappy Quilt

Recently finished this small scrappy quilt.  The block is courthouse steps.  The finished quilt is ~17.5 in square.  

If you look closely you can see where the reds bleed a bit when I washed out my quilt markings.  It's much more apparent on the back.
