One more Keyka Lou Post

Awesome Sale!

Okay folks. Now I've got an ever better deal for you!  

Michelle has graciously brought back her older patterns and is having a "semi-retired' sale over at the Keyka Lou blog.

They are all on sale for $3.00 each!

You can find them here.

Yes, I'm going to get a few.  I'll probably get this one and this one for sure.  I'm trying to limit myself here.

Let me know if you get one and show pics if you make something!

Padded Camera Pouch

 Padded Camera Pouch

OK, MAYBE I'm just a little obsessed with making Keyka Lou patterns right now.  

And since Michelle is having an amazingly, awesome sale over at Keyka Lou I had to grab her newest pattern and try it out for myself!  

I decided to make the smallest size in the Padded Camera Pouch pattern and it fits my camera just great!  There is a little bit of extra room but the pouch is nicely padded so no worries there.

Since I'm also obsessed with woodgrain fabric right now I used some for the lining. {It's a Heidi Grace print as is the main fabric}

Here is the pouch open. {No camera inside 'cause I was using it...ha!}

I love how it cinches together to keep the camera nice and safe.

Just a nice shot of the back of the pouch.

I admit I received three "pin-juries" while sewing this cutie up.  I had to stop and mend before finishing it up but it was SOO worth it!

Pleated Pouch

Michelle creates the most awesome patterns which are really easy to follow and the {best} part is --- you can SELL the items you make!  
(Or just keep them for yourself. :) )

I've purchased a obscene amount of her patterns over the past 
few years.  And like I mentioned here, I was perusing my stash of patterns and happened upon {this one} which I had forgotten I had bought some time ago.  I just love how it turns out!

So, if you've been waiting to buy a cute clutch, purse, tote or camera bag pattern, now is the time to get on over to Keyka Lou and grab a few...or twelve. Who's counting?

Cute Fox Zipper Pouch

A few days ago I found this pattern in my stash of patterns. Forgot I had purchased it! 

So I cut out the pattern pieces and got to work. Okay...I admit I was lost for a little bit with the pattern but I'm blaming my confusion to the lateness of the night. It was about 10:00p.m.
Well....I LOVED how this pouch turned out! {If you don't notice that the fox pattern is upside down. That's okay, right??}

I'm definitely going to make a few more of these!

This past weekend I did some sewing!
( I also watch LDS General Conference-so good!)

I sewed up some iPad covers/cases 
with a pattern from 
Amber over at One Shabby Chick.  
LOVE reading her blog!  

She has the iPad tutorial on her blog for 
and it's really fun to make.  

I whipped up three cases - 

Unfortunately, I don't have an iPad so 
I've listed them in my Etsy store. 

My son saw these and now 
he wants a case for his iPod 
so now I'm off to sew 
up a case for that!
