Christmas Friday Sew and Tell Edition

Sew much potential and an awesome selvage!
Santa's elf has been busy!

On the homefront, Katelynne's birthday party is Saturday!  Hubby workaholic and I have decided we'll give her the pinwheel quilt and a Katelynne Bag for the party.  I putzed around and used copy paper, a straight edged ruler and dinner plate to come up with a design of the bag.  I'm pleased, but know I can improve on it.  Just not today!  LOL

The bag holds her quilt until she lovingly cuddles her dollies in it.  She can then use the bag to carry whatever her sweet, little heart desires.  More white flannel, Grammy stash and scraps from Javi's "Blueberry" quilt. 

For Christmas, we decided we'll give her the Sherbert quilt and a new dolly to love.

Soft, so soft, white flannel with orange, pink and yellow squares.  The binding is the softest yellow!  One of my favorite colors!

Sew, all total this week:
one pinwheel doll quilt bound, washed, dried and ready to go
one Katelynne bag designed, made and filled with the pinwheel quilt
one Sherbert doll quilt made beginning to end, washed and just perfect for snuggling baby dolls
two little Christmas bags for two special ladies!

Make sure you find the Sew & Tell button on the left side and click on it.  It will take you to a wonderfully inspiring site that hosts our weekly finishes!  I get such great ideas and encouragement from the other women sharing what they've been working on.
Can't wait to see what everyone got done this week!
