Fun Birthday Sewing

School is back in session - already! The boys are liking their teachers and seeing friends. The 3yr old is wandering around sad with no brothers to play with all day.
And no mommy paying attention yesterday either, as I actually completed a sewing project!


A few of us moms get together for breakfast out in the first days of school, and today is also the birthday for one. So I made her Amy Butler's document duvet and photo holder.


I debated all week on what to make and in what fabrics, and finally decided on the classic linen with those cute goldfish that I had yet to use.





I love that little guy! Hopefully she does, too.

Angela, this is so cute! I didn't even know there was a pattern out there for something like this. I will have to track it down. I did go to JoAnn's and buy some linen. It hasn't made it into a quilt yet - I have been busy gutting two bathrooms.

I love it, Angela! The fishies are perfect (I really wish it wasn't out of print!) and I love the pattern. I think I would feel so much better about carrying about my work papers in something like this! Great job!
