Bag for a friend

Every once in a while, I like to make bags, and I happened to notice that a bag one of my friends uses at church is wearing out. So, I decided to make her a new one. I hope she likes it.

I didn't use a pattern, just copied the bag she uses now. It is reversible, has one side pocket on the outside and one on the inside. Also, there is a zipper pocket on one side.

I don't think my camera is doing the colors justice in these photos. It is cuter in real life.

Ella's quilt

I finally got around to making a quilt for my 3rd daughter and gave it to her for Christmas. She chose some of the fabrics herself, and most of them are polka dot. I like the back as much as the front (it also took as much or more time to put it together). The squares on the back are the same size as the ones on the front, since I had cut out plenty when I made the front. I had seen a quilt with a back like this one online and I loved the way it looked. I quilted it pretty simply, but I think it goes with the squares. I also did a pieced binding, which I love.
Of course, Ella loves it too.
