Design Wall Monday - 4/21/14

Thankfully I'm not doing weekly stash reports 'cuz the last few weeks have done me in!

I realized Friday morning that I really didn't have enough vinyl in my stash to make name badges for my conference next week so I went off on a VART**. You know that I came home with some fabric as well...


These FQs are from the store with the vinyl. I've already cut into 5 of them for name badges, 3 are saved for my POTC project and the bottom right went in to my pile of fabrics with hexies on them!


Oops, almost forgot the stencil I bought - I though it would be fun for quilting mugrugs.


Then on my way home, since I was already driving by, I decided to stop at store #2. Check out their vintage purple door knob!!



I've already used 4 of the 5 FQs but the red is the perfect red for my POTC project. This will be the tiny squares in the sashing. I'm sure I bought much more than I needed but it's so hard to match reds that I would rather have extra to maybe use in the borders or something.

And then I finally got home to work on those badge holders. I work assembly line style so I cut them all out and then I sew all one step and then all of another step. Eventually I get a little sick of that so I just went ahead and finished a pile of them.



Tonight I'll go back to assembly line finishing the others...



This next pic was actually a goof - probably anyone with an iPhone has taken one of these but I just thought it was cool and didn't want to hit delete. I doubt I could have taken this if I tried.

It looks like your VART turned into a FART! Lol! Love that red. How many badge holders are you making? Looks like you are really whipping them out!
