May Moda

April showers bring May flowers!  These little totes are fun to decorate with flowers...

Originally posted as Lil' Girl Springtime Totes, at Just Another Hang Up.  They are so cheery and fun to make.  They would be great for little girls, but would also make nice gift bags or lunch bags.  We recently made these at a retreat.  The "Wow" factor really comes into play when the flower is applied.....Go ahead....try to make just's hard to not want to make more!

Jane sent me a link for this month's featured pincushion.  She suggested adding a second tail feather, and attaching the wings so as to allow you to put a seam ripper under one wing & a small pair of scissors under the other.  Click the link under the picture to find the pattern.

Several great aprons were brought in for show and tell.  (Working on a Flicker page to post show and tell projects.)  It's always so inspiring to see what everyone is making.  Thanks for bringing in your completed projects to share with us all.

Dresden plate projects are starting to show up completed.  This is Rose's amazing blue and white quilt.  In the background you can see Shelby's.  I'll post a better picture of her's with next month's reminder.  Both are beautiful pieces of work.  (Thanks to Tari Johnson for the photo.)  Several people brought in their dresden plate progress.  Looking forward to the completed items in June.  These two are on display in the classroom.  Please consider displaying your completed dresden project.  It's fun for both groups to see what the others have made.
