Bid on my Posy Pocket Tote {For a Good Cause}

Hi there!  I wanted to share something that is close to my heart.  My friend Stacy is battling for her life.  She was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer about nine months ago.  She is a young mother of four children who desperately need their mom! She has been undergoing countless treatments and has had several surgeries within the last nine months and everything is very costly.




Her friends and family have put together an event to help with the growing costs of her treatments.  It is an online/silent auction and they have tons of things you can bid on! One of which, is my Posy Pocket Tote I made a few weeks back.  If you are local to Las Vegas - you can even attend the silent auction - where they will have a ton of stuff up for auction.  If you are not local, then you can bid on the items they are listing on the online auction - I have donated my Posy Pocket Tote to the online auction:




To bid - just go to this link - bidding will end on Saturday! - You may have to scroll down to find the bag! 

You can follow Stacy's story by following her Facebook page: Stacy Strong!

Raspberry and Cream BOM {Block 8}


Hi there! Today I am ready to share my eighth block for the Raspberry and Cream Block of the Month!!

***We only have a couple of finishing kits left for this and we are unable to reorder fabric since the manufacturer is out of this fabric! Also if you would like your backing to match, be sure to snag some before we are completely out of the fabric! Purchase HERE

 For backing you'll need to purchase 5.625 yards (44" wide) or 2.5 yards (108" wide) backing. 


------------------------------------------------------------

Goose Tracks





For this block you will need to use fabrics A, C, and F from your Blocks Kit:





Block Layout:


I enjoyed piecing this block.  It came together quickly, and I didn't lose any of my points! yay!  I did open my seams on those tiny half square triangles - other than that I just pressed my seams to one side.  

Your blocks should measure 9.5" x 9.5" unfinished.  The best way to ensure you get that is to use a 1/4" presser foot!

Sandpipers Pocket Tote


Hi there! I am back to show you another version of the Posy Pocket Tote!  We had such a fantastic response - I wanted to make another one - but in a different line of fabric! This time I used Sandpipers by Sarah Campbell by Michael Miller.  I love this collection of fabrics - they are so serene and absolutely lovely.  

Kit Available HERE

This tote gives off a whole different vibe from my last tote.  I love the subtlety of the fabrics in this bag.  That feather print - is my absolute favorite! 
Kit Available HERE

There are three pockets inside the tote- which is a must for me! The more pockets the better! :) 


I used this lovely Pearl print for the zippered pockets and I am loving the contrast against the darker blues!  Plus I feel so accomplished when I make a fully lined zippered pocket! It looks so pretty and looks like a lot of work - but really these pockets are pretty simple! Once you do one, you will wonder why you haven't tried it before! 



This is definitely one of those bags that will go with most anything - the neutrality of the prints is what makes me love this bag so much. 
Kit Available HERE

I hope you enjoy making this tote as much as I did! :)
