WIPs With Friends and Giveaway

Hey there.  It's been awhile since I have had actual time to write one of these posts. 
Anyone out there doing any sewing?  Halloween costumes?  Halloween Quilts?  Christmas stuff? Let's share what you are working on! 
 I have some adorable fabric to give away to someone if we can get 10 pictures shared on this post!  

I am working on getting things ready for my trip to California in a few weeks 
for the Sew Beachy retreat.  
I want to make this adorable first aid bag but I am really a bag chicken.  LOL. 
 I am not confident at all when sewing things like this.  
It is from the book Crafty Little Things to Sew.  
My friend Jaimie (@madebyjamie) 
will be there to and she has agreed to hold my hand and walk me through the process. 
She is amazing!   
I would love to make these for gifts.  Wouldn't they be great in your car? 
 I just need to learn how to make one first, HA!

I did just get my Sparty quilt back from the quilter, but it has rained every day so no photos yet.  
I made the binding and sewed in on, just need to hand stitch it down now.  
I sent the gator quilt to the quilter and made the binding for that one too.

I made another Cheddar Jack to use in a project.  
He is so cute and a free pattern here on my blog
in the Mama Spark's Tutorial section (link in header too)

I had LOADS of help with him along with the paper pieced word I was making one letter at a time.  
I can't show that or the person I am making this for will know who they are = )

I used the alphabet pattern from Diane Bohn.
It is a really nice one and if you need a copy you can find one right here.

I still need to show you guys the fabric I bought while on our NC trip.  
I hope to have that posted tomorrow.

I am also linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts
If you want to be in the drawing for some sweet fabric please link up what you are working on.
If we can get 10 people I will give away some fabric!!!
(and we all NEED free fabric, right?)

I love the first aid bag. That would be so much fun to have anywhere.
