Fall Decor and More Project Bags!

Here's some fall decor that I thought you might enjoy viewing. This is an old picture frame hand-painted by my step-daughter~Amy. She doesn't use any stencils, it is all free-hand. She does such a great job and has this one hanging over her fireplace.
Amy gets so excited that she decorates really early for each season. I think she had this out back in Aug. LOL
I love the old fireplace....
and the old windows....She recently found this ladder~it's over 6ft. tall...Another piece she painted....These are some project bags I made back in the summer. I've made about 8 or 9 now and have given all but one away. They are so easy and fast to make. Front side.....back side.......another blue one.....back side.......
This one I gave to our granddaughter, Brooke. She keeps her hair bows in it.
Tried a different color scheme w/this one...
This is one I made recently. I made it a few inches bigger than the other ones. Basically it takes about 3 to 4 fat quarters of fabric and one zipper.
I always line the inside w/some co-ordinating fabric.

Well, that's it for now~ I hope you enjoyed the pics. I've been sending out several RAK's recently and I'm running out of names/addies, so if you'd like to be put on my list, just send me an email w/your full name/addie and who knows? YOU just might be next. Please put RAK on the subject line so it won't get lost.

Please check back again soon as I have lots more stitched goodies to share w/you(including a quilt top) and I'm also gearing up for my very own give~away in the near future, so you won't want to miss out.
Thanks to all of you who left such sweet comments on the last few posts~they really brighten my day and I appreciate all of them!!

Happy Stitching!

Have a great day!

The project bags are super! Did you use the tutorial at SewMuch2Luv? I tried it and still managed to end up with a top-zippered bag instead of a front-zippered bag!!

Catherine said...
