Yes, yes, yes 3 finishes....edited

It has been a good month for finishes... 
three Tammy Bags 
three collapsible thread catchers
 and three needle keepers.
I promised a friend I would make her a Tammy with 30's fabrics. 
I cut all the pieces to make 3 bags,
3 needle keepers and 3 thread catchers.
...hoping I would be able to finish 2 by the end of February.
I gave myself a pat on the back after finishing the 3rd one!!

I used Kona Snow for the embroidered fronts for all three bags.
This teal fabric was made using Hope Chest-Penny Rose by Riley Blake.
  The fabric for the blue one is from the Snippets line by Sandy Klop.
It was a Moda fabric that came out around 2008.
   For the third bag I chose the initial M.  
So cute with the bird sitting on her nest atop the
with the wee heart in her beak.
The inside of all the bags were made with 
Hope Chest Yellow Pindot - Penny Rose by Riley Blake.

The Tammy Bag was designed by Mdm Samm.
The Stitchery Alphabet was designed by Michelle Ridgway.

My One Monthly Goal for February...

I've managed to get a wee bit of stitching done this week.
...in between doing all the things necessary to sell our house.
I'm making a few Tammy Bag Sewing Kits... 
one for a friend who loves 30's fabrics as much as I do.  
I thought I would give her a choice of fabrics.

The embroidery is from the Stitcher's Alphabet pattern 
designed by  Michelle Ridgway.  
Her pattern company is Rag-Tag Stitchin'.

Some of Michelle's patterns are available in the USA at 
Corinna has sold out of the Stitcher's Alphabet
but she does have
Alphabet Noel and Baby Alphabet in stock.
The Baby Alphabet would make the cutest baby quilt.

Mdm Samm designed the Tammy Bag in 2013.
It is one of my favorite bags to make...I love this bag!!

My February goal for OMG is to finish the 2 Tammy Bags.
I will be making matching needle keepers
and collapsible thread catchers.
They do make the perfect gift for anyone that plays needle and thread.
