BackTack III, Version 2.0

July 13th

I’ve lamented that my first Backtack III package to Kerrie never arrived. Alas, it truly never arrived. I worked on version 2.0 last week and it is in the mail with 4-6 day delivery. It should be arriving Monday at the latest, fingers crossed.
A sneak peek:

The third, bunny bottom button

I went a little crazy with the pink in this package. I must admit. Somedays I just feel pink. Anyone else feel a color from time to time?

In other sewing progress, I picked up some more Martha Stewart tea towels the other day. They aren’t necessarily cheap ($10 for 5), but the designs are great. I always have a hard time figuring out which ones to purchase because I like them all. I made some of my favorite aprons from the last batch.


These will become knitting needle rolls.

Matching ribbon for needle cases

Paired with a pretty ribbon for the closure, this is a simple project with clean lines.

Pretty pinned fabric

Man, I love to sew. I know, I’m such a dork. But there are days I wish I could sit in front of my sewing machine, pairing fabrics and creating from sunrise to sunset.

  1. I love, love, love those tea towels!!! I passed a K-Mart on Saturday night when we went out to dinner and didn’t stop. DRATS!!! I may have to take a trip there soon.

    I love the button tail on the bunny. It’s so cute.

  2. Those towels are fabulous! I recently saw in one of my many magazines how to make a beach tote out of a beach towel. I loved them. I must learn to sew! UGH And yes, I totally feel like a color every day (sometimes black wins out several days in a row LOL)…I think I dress based on those feelings each morning.

  3. I can’t wait to see what you do with them. You have such a great eye for colors. Please let us see what you come up with. Seeing the things you put together inspires me to sew….

  4. Ooh – so pretty and so fun. I’d much prefer to do that right now than what I”m doing. WORKING!!! Blah

  7. Great towels…and now aprons! Very cute! I have those days where I wish the world would just get out of my way so I could sew morning to night. But I suppose if I had all the time in the world to do it, I’d enjoy less.
