Vintage Floral Mug Rug from "Quilt Petite"!
Five Things Friday

WIP Wednesday...

Happy Wednesday! Today I thought I'd participate in WIP Wednesday with The Needle & Thread Network!
So first things first, I've decided to challenge myself in 2017! My challenge is to make at least one project a month from my stash of sewing books. Many of these books I've purchased and have made maybe one project per book, if even that... *hangs head in shame* So this is the year I break them in! If you'd like to join in head on over to Instagram and find me @cpeicheff and use the hashtag #2017sewingbookchallenge to join in! First I want to see your bookshelf, then we'll post our first self challenge! Mine is going up tomorrow, so stay tuned...

Now that my wrist is feeling much better (not 100%, but still, a lot better!) I'm trying to get caught up on the sewing that's on my "to do" list so have a few projects on the go...

First up a custom ordered slimline wallet with a gold flecked cork outer.

I'm waiting on binding fabric for this mini quilt that I made for an instagram swap, it should be here this week, so once it arrives I'll bind and get ready to send!

I finished these pencil pouches this morning which were custom ordered for 2 little girls to keep their crafting supplies in! Should have lots of room in them for their treasures! They're backed with my favourite MODA mochi dot linen and finished off with some beaded zipper charms made by my sister.
