Week 4 of the Patchwork Please! Sew Along Cafe Apron

Wow, I can't believe we are starting week 4 of the Sew Along. I know I said that in the end I would have 18 presents for Christmas, but I think I am keeping this one. I have to admit that I have no real use for this cute apron but I will have to wear it just for the heck of it. I was able to get 2 yards of the gorgeous yellow fabric, at IKEA, for 97 cents a yard. I have been waiting for just the right project to use a piece of it. 
I love the way this project turned out, so I made myself a Christmas gift. No, I will not wait till the Holidays to wear it.

Week 3 Lettered Tea Cozy and Teabag Holder

Oh what a wonderful gift this will make. This weeks project in the Patchwork Please! Sew Along was an adorable tea cozy and a matching teabag holder. This was a pretty simple project, I think I even did well on the quilting. I was thinking, " paired with a vintage teapot it will make a really great gift for a really great friend" . The owl teapot belongs to my daughter (sorry if you were hoping this gift was going to you :)

Hello again,

It's week number 2 in the Patchwork Please! sew along. This weeks project was a breakfast, lunch, and dinner tea towels. This is another great way to use up some of those scraps I have been collecting for some time now.

Patchwork Please! Sew along

 Week number 1-  Pepper coasters
My newest project is following along in the Patchwork Please! sew along. One project a week for 20 weeks straight. The book is by Ayumi Takahashi and has some awesome projects including 2 quilts, yep 2 quilts. I am taking the challenge not only because they are very cool projects, but because by the end of the sew along (which ends in Oct) I will have 20 Christmas presents done. Who will be the lucky recipients???????
