Tiny Treats

September 17th, 2010

Trick-or-Treat… smell my sewing machine feet.
Tiny Totes

Make some Tiny Treats bags from my pattern in the Fall 2010 issue of Quilts & More.   I have two projects in this issue - one is my Tiny Treats bags project, and the other is my Dressed to Impress organizer quilt project (kit available at the Fat Quarter Shop).  But there’s more… MUCH MORE. 
Quilts & More - Fall 2010

I love this Halloween fabric.  LOVE IT.  So bold, graphic and clean.

I’m hording my wee little scraps of Boo Boo Bears by RJR Fabrics left-over from the project.

No pets allowed in my sewing room… but one rare occasions I allow the villagers in and let then think they’ve snuck in (and can’t be seen).

This fabric made my heart skip a beat!  Confections by Caleb Gray for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

I had no choice but to lick the fabric.

Can’t stop.  More bags in in the works.  Instead of ribbon, I’m using 3″ strips of fabrics (double folded inward/finished at ¾” and edge stitched - same method as my Poochie Bag’s straps).

I love mixing and matching Elizabeth’s darling new Red Rose Farm line with P&B Textiles.  I’m making some Tiny Treat bags for Elizabeth’s Market booth - and since I’m not done sewing them… they’ll have to wait to be seen at Market!
Tiny Totes

My Lecien fabric-sister - Rosalie Quinlan and her newest line of Sweet Broderie.  I’m going to send these off to Lecien’s Market booth - IF I have the will power to let them go once I’m done sewing them all up.
Tiny Totes

I am so in love with this fabric! It sings to both my loves of vintage and modern fabrics. Sing-out-loud sing… like Aretha Franklin beltin’ one out.
Tiny Totes

Thinking up what goodies would be good in the Tiny Treats bags is next!

PS… Emma Thomsen is hosting a give-away on her blog - a 12 fat quarter bundle of my Holiday Happy fabric.  HURRY… her give-away ends soon!

It will be a group of us ‘Sisters on the Fly’ here in the Inland North West,,,and we want to squeeze in one more ‘Glamping trip’ before we tuck our vintage trailers away for the Winter.

    Greetings Ms happy Zombie,
    Your Tiny Treat bags are gorgeous and I have made some.. quite a lot actually. I had them displayed pleasingly in my sewing studio, until I had a rather tragic incident here in Scotland UK. My 3 year Granddaughter took 12 beautiful Tiny Totes home, with the belief that I had made them for her. “Mama (that’s me)thank you for making these pretty bags for me.” she said, and I couldn’t tell her NO, could I? Anyhoo back to the cutting board. Thank you for a fab pattern.
