A Lovely Year of Finishes April Goal

For this month I am totally going to go easy on myself.  Last month I got in such a rut and the never ending icky weather really did not help things.   I did manage to finish all my goals but I really do not like doing things at the last minute.   So for this month I am going to select the Arabesque Bag from Sew Sweetness that I cut out a month ago. 

And to go along with that I am refinishing this brand new wallet (came from Target) that I picked up at Goodwill for $1.  It is really not my style but and very boring.  So I am going to use my cute wombat fabric and maybe a bit of grey fabric to refinish it.  I am thinking I will use some iron on vinyl so the fabric does not get dirty and wore out so fast.  

See nice and easy this month.  That is not to say that I will not be doing anything.  I still have my Library Project goals, my second quarter Finish Along goals, my block of the month projects and a Improv Round Robin that I joined.  Yes, I do have trouble not joining in.  I also have paid for several long arm quilting classes on Craftsy that I just never seem to get to well hopefully that will change this month.  

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.

  3. I'm looking forward to seeing your bag when it's completed. I'm working with Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow in the same colorway and never considered pairing it with red. Why the heck not?! I love turquoise and red/coral together. Hmmmmmm

  4. I love makeovers ... can't wait to see your new refinished wallet.
