This was our first week of summer break but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It has been cool and raining here all week so there was no pool time for us. Instead I have been going through more of Emilia's things and getting rid of the stuff she has outgrown or no longer needs. Every time I think I have made some progress I find more things to go through. It is my own fault though because I use to have trouble getting rid of things. I am doing a lot better now though. One of my nail clients is a pre-school teacher so I was able to give a lot of things to her the rest of it went to families in my homeschooling group. I still have stuff that needs to go to Goodwill though. It has been a lot of work but at least I know all the stuff will be put to good use so that makes it easier for me to get rid of it.
I was also able to do some stamping and sewing this week too. When I participated in the 10 day Etsy challenge I discovered Lilly Pulitzer Fabric from Lynn's work. As most of you know I love bright colors so I fell in love with this fabric. I was able to find some from a seller on Etsy and this is what I came up with
A Mini Turtle Rag Bag
This bag is half the size of the owl rag bag I shared a few weeks ago. I think this bag would be a great way for a little girl to carry around her favorite stuffed animal.
Emilia's Pink Webkinz Poodle Amanda is modeling it for you. I also think the bag would make a great tote to carry small things in for moms too.
All the printed fabric is Lilly Pulitzer but I made the Polka Dot fabric by stamping the med size polka dots from the Papertrey Polka Dots Basics set with Razpberry Fizz Perfect Match ink on white cotton Fabric. I also stamped the polka dots on white grosgrain ribbon to match too. This bag is up for sale in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in buying it. I am also participating in the Etsy Yart sale this weekend and am offering 10% off of anything in my shop this weekend too. That's it for now. I hope you have enjoyed today's post. Make sure to check out Beverly's blog to see what the other participants are sharing today too. I hope to get time later today to make a video about the wood veneer so check back next week for that as well. In the meantime I hope you all have a great pink Saturday and as always thanks for stopping by.
