Sew n Tell

I'm going to be trying to consolidate my sewing for the week into one or two posts, rather than posting right after I make things. We'll see how well I do. :] First off, I have a Christmas gift for my 9-year-old niece. I used this tutorial to make a little wrist wallet. I made use of the Amy Butler fabric I received from Amy at AmyLouWho, when I won her giveaway a few weeks ago! I've never had any Amy Butler fabric, so it was lots of fun.
You can see that I added some piping to the pattern. I thought it helped make the blue a little more girly. This niece of mine likes pink a lot, but I think she'll still like this.

It also comes with a matching headband!
One more Christmas gift done.
I also finished several bags for my shop. They are all snap clutches.

I had fun with my new embroidery machine.
And this one is my favorite. I love the embroidery!
I finished two more tonight except snaps, but I fizzled out, so I'll put those in and list them in my store tomorrow.
This one is light blue with blue flowers. Sorry it's so washed out here--I didn't want to get out my light box.

I'm sharing at Show and Tell at Blue Cricket Design.

Neat idea to make a wristlet that way. I bet she'll love the set.

I just love the wrist wallet! I've never seen anything like that before and to pair it up with a head band, great idea! All of your clutches are so beautiful! I found your site through the Sew and Tell links and I'm so happy I stumbled upon the that site, and yours! :-)
