In Stitches July

June 30th

Dear Finny,
I was looking through In Stitches last night and man if we haven’t already done a ton of projects! I am so proud of us. This group has come together to make some pretty incredible things. Bravo ladies!
I can’t wait to tackle the patchwork purse and the wallet. However, the dog-days of summer have arrived and I want a project that is easy and will make my life a bit more relaxing this time of year.

July In Stitches

July’s project is the bathroom caddy. The theme is luxury. Fill it with your favorite beauty products and tell us why they make you smile. And don’t forget to post your photo in the flickr pool by the end of the month so we can pick a winner. Anyone can participate! Fin, who is the winner for June?

  1. I’ve yet to make anything from this book, but I have plans to! Maybe tomorrow I’ll dig through the fabric stash and whip something up.

  2. love that one! can’t wait to try it!

  3. I love that organizer!

    I have ht ebook but doubt I will make anything for awhile. Today I am sewing baby gifts.

  4. Sounds like a perfect project for July!

  5. That’s a great organizer. It would make a great gift too. I think I’m going to get that book and start trying some projects, since I’m not scared of my sewing machine anymore!

  6. Wow! I love it! I think I’m going to have to go out and buy this book. I like so many of the things in it.
    This would make great Christmas gifts…

  7. Nice. That looks like a fun sew. What do I know!? I don’t sew! 😉 Have a great weekend.

  8. Oooohh, a great project and I get to spy on other people’s favorite beauty products. It’s a winning combination!

  9. Cute caddy and you are going to town with other stuff beside all your running and swimming and biking. Many faceted woman!

  10. Oh yay! I can’t wait to make that. As for the patchwork purse, I started it like 4-5 months ago and it’s still not finished. I have a love hate relationship with that project. Grrr.. makes me mad just thinking about it!!

    Ok, so now I should finish June’s project hee hee

  11. I wish I knew how to sew. =[

  12. So awesome!! Listen, I’d love to whip up something as colorful and durable as the things you have created, but am not as experienced … advice?

    Have a great Sunday!!

  13. Good call, my friend. I’ll post the winner for June shortly. Woo! I’m drunk with power! Or perhaps that is a remnant from yesterday’s hillbilly BBQ. Oh yes, redneck BBQ season is in full swing around here. Which means my caddy will be packed with sunscreen.

    I was just telling Hubbard that I needed to replace the shower caddy, and then I saw this one. I am smitten, and on a new quest. I’m am going to buy that book, and start learning to sew, fingers be damned! I love how colorful your life is!

  15. Wonderful Idea! Will try to make one to

  16. Pretty! (and this’ll be a fun one to sit back and watch! Lovely sewing and product tips and reviews? Bring it on!)
