Purse Essentials

A few weeks ago we had a Relief Society Activity. One of the games we had was, what's in your purse? When we were planning the activity one of the commitee members volunteered me to make the prizes for the games. She even donated the fabric! I thought I should make something that you could put in your purse. I came across this tutorial for checkbook covers. I made several and you can tell which one was my first. (the one in the front with the sideways ruffle, oops!)

Well after making several, I thought these would make cute sunglass covers. And I could really use a sunglass cover myself. So I played around with some measurements and came up with these sunglass covers...

I just need to make one more, for me!

Summer Pool Dress

This summer we've been to the pool quite a few times. I've seen a lot of ladies there with cute swimsuits and dresses. I thought maybe I should just make one. I found this knit fabric (my first) that reminded me of the colors of water so I picked it up. I shirred the top and left the dress long. I ended up removing the straps, because it stays up anyway. I love it, it's so comfy and great for lounging around the house. Too bad I made at the end of the summer and not the beginning, I guess there is always next year!

Nice and long
