What can you refashion a man's shirt into? A skirt, a dress or a woman's shirt. But when it comes to a military shirt the first choice that pops up into your mind is a shoulder bag.
I love cute bags and I love them more if they're handmade! So, one afternoon, I kept my kids entertained with papers and watercolors beside me while I sat down with my sewing buddy - my sturdy Alfa 4550. We whipped this cute lined tote which I called the "Beautiful Day Tote Bag".
This week’s clue for the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt is to make 350 half-square triangle (HSQ) units that measure 2″ square unfinished, 1.5″ finished (when sewn into a block or the quilt itself). After all the cutting I did for the quarter-square triangle units I wasn’t looking forward to this step.
