Blend Fabric Quilt Market Projects

New Projects from Quilt Market

Have you heard of Quilt Market? It’s basically a big smorgasbord of fabric and quilting awesomeness. I’ve never been – I think it’s only open to quilt and fabric designers, but it’s on my list of “big things I want to do”. It’s a long list. :) Last weekend was…

Easy-Pieced-Zipper-Pouch

Sweet Deer Embroidered Zipper Pouch

I think sweet little Deer projects go hand in hand with Spring, don’t you? I also think you can never have enough zipper pouches. At least I can’t. I definitely need more organization and tidiness in my life. So I thought – let’s combine the too! A cute deer embroidery,…

Fold Over Bow Clutch

Leather and Bow Fold Over Clutch

I think I’ve become addicted to the Fold Over Clutch. Or maybe I’m just addicted to cute and easy accessories. Because seriously, fold over clutches are just really tall zipper pouches that are . . . . wait for it . . . . folded over. Genius right? Since they are…

Spring Makeup Zipper Pouch

Don’t you get all organizey and inspired to clean during the Spring? I am definitely feeling like that – probably also because we’re moving and I’m looking at all the stuff and thinking “I don’t really want to move any of this.” Well I do much better with keeping things tidy…

Lace and Linen Bow Clutch

Linen and Lace Bow Clutch

Sometimes I feel like my style is all over the place. I really love modern prints and styles – but I’m also drawn to looks that are classic and kind of preppy. I think I have multiple personality style issues. Or maybe they’re not issues. Maybe I just need to be ok with…

fold over snap clutch

Easy Pom Pom Fold Over Snap Clutch

I typically don’t love the color purple. I mean, it’s ok. I don’t hate it or anything – but I’ll pretty much choose most colors over it. But in the past year I’ve been wanting to make things more out of my comfort zone – and so I decided to…
