Another little project

I had a fun weekend with my mom and dad. Mom and I went to my LQS and we both found lots of fun projects to buy for. I will touch on those later. Then we came home, and I have wanted to use this pattern for well over a year. Mom had a sweet 16 present to buy for, so we whipped this up to compliment what she bought. The pattern's name is Abbey's Treasure Box.

I used some of my Urban Chicks 1974 charms. Urban Chicks if you are tuning in today, please keep these wonderful fabrics coming! I love this line. I'd love to have a complimenting line come out soon.

I like how this project had you quilt it as you sewed it. This is only my second zipper, and I thought it was very easy!

What a fun project to make. I like the fabric too. Since you made this little zipper bag, you should try the cute zipper bag on the Moda Bake Shop web-site, they are very cute, I made two of them on Friday.

CUTE! I have that pattern too but I haven't used it yet. Second zipper, huh? You look like a zipper pro to me!

I love 1974, too! Urban Chiks came out with a similar line to Swell, so maybe they'll come out with a similar line to 1974. I'd be standing in line to buy it.

Cute bag, too!
