#67 Summer Winding Down (Part 2)

So last time I was catching up on all my summertime sewing activities that I just did't get around to blogging about, so today is part 2, but read or skim ;) right to the end because I have new news too!!

What I've Been Up To:

I made a Noodlehead Divided Basket pattern!! Loved it! You can find it here . I have also made her Pool Side Tote and loved it as well. See post here

 If you follow me at all you will know that I love to make things smaller or larger than original patterns, just for fun!! because I can!!!! This time is no different, I used my printer and printed the pattern at 75% and another one at 150%  The following pictures show the results of that!! (insert big smiley face here!!!)
 The middle basket is the original size pattern

I also made a couple of cute pouches with the leftover fabric from my RJR Batiks project. Love how this turned out!! I am trying to get a tutorial ready for my Oct 10 post for the RJR Fabrics What's your Shade Blog Hop. So don't forget to come back, or better yet sign up to follow my posts so you never miss anything!! :)
Click on IkaPrint picture in sidebar if your are interested in your own labels!! Don't forget to use "upstairshobbyroom" in the coupon code area before you finish your order to save 5%. (I love my labels!)

 And lastly I've been tweaking a great pattern I found online here to make it just the way I want. Will be posting my tweaks and measurements soon!!

 And here is the new News!!!!

My friend Jacquelynne Steves, from the Art of Home, is hosting a Free Block of the Month (BOM)/Blog Hop  starting October 1st!! I am so excited to be a part of this! I will be making my blocks and posting at the beginning of the month along with some other bloggers to help show different fabric options and finished project ideas and hopefully to just to inspire, along with surprises and prizes!!! If you are interested follow this link to all the information!! Hope you join the fun!!
