Joining in on Some Fun

There are two stitch a longs going on that I'm jumping in on. Yes, yes, I know, I am still working on other projects, but hey, I just can't resist these two.

Frame Pouch Along

First is the Pouch a Long going on at Making Rebecca Lynne. I am already behind because I have yet to even draw (or think about) my template(s). I bought a bunch of frames and they finally arrived earlier this week so I first had to go about picking out fabrics. I am being good and shopping from my stash on this one. I have three definately picked out and some other ideas.

This looks like a pile of nothing but will be a pretty patchwork pouch. I got excited when I found these in my scrap box. I forgot I had put them in there.

I don't have a lining for this one and haven't decided which frame. Maybe both? I do have a yard of this fabric.

Possible Pouch?

A Heather Ross fat quarter arrived today and I will probably use it to make a pouch.

Purse Frame

This frame is a little bit bigger than the rest. I couldn't resist the shoes and don't know what other material I will use with it.

The other one is the Market Tote Stitch a Long at Clover and Violet. I missed out on the fun with their first QAL, but will probably do that one one day on my own. They are using Ruby fabrics but I didn't want to wait, so I went to JoAnn's to see if anything caught my eye. It did and pretty hard. The tote features a gorgeous embroidered pocket which is what triggered me needing to make this. I can't resist embroidery it seems.

That's all I have time for today. I am going to try to catch up with my e-mails before I have to jet to work.

Whoa!!! I love all the fabrics you chose! Whew hew... I am going to post a "troubleshooting" post tonight...I think. So that might help your design choices anyway. No need to rush!

Wow, you have picked so many great fabrics! And with that, you are officially ahead of me in the PAL! Can't wait to see the finished pouches!

I really like that square frame in the photo where you had two frames. I think that fabric would look great in square frame!
