Anyway, you should check out her listings and flickr in general. I love to join groups and see what other people are doing with their creative energy. I even found a group that just posts pics of pink Christmas stuff. Now really, how cool is that?

This was such a fast project. I got the idea from Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. You can buy the little notebooks at Barnes and Noble. The "pattern" suggests using glue on the inside cover to hold the stitches but I've been thinking that "No-Fray" could work just as well. Maybe I'll pick some up at the shop this weekend.
I also finished my Amy Butler Betty Shopper. I'll post a pic of that this week. What and easy and fun bag that was to make!

I made these for my friend's one year old. They're so soft and squishy. Perfect for mouthing and throwing and squashing. Really easy to make out of precut charm squares (from my stash) or just cut 5" squares. Sew 4 together and combine in a circle, leaving seam open about 2 inches for turning. Then add side squares, turn , push out corners, stuff, blindstich opening closed (I do it by machine since little people can get most openings open) and that's it! Quick, easy and great results!
