My 100 Day Sewing Challenge #5

I stitched 4 days this week for at least 15 minutes each day!  

That puts me at day 15!!!!

Here's what I did ...





Finished the edging on this pillow case ...  (this picture doesn't do it justice!)  I have one more to do!  These are for me, by the way!


Crocheted another face cloth while riding in the vehicle ... this will go in my gift trunk along with the others I've done.  This is the yarn I used.


And stitched up this pouch!  (Here again, the picture doesn't do this justice!)  These pouches are for me as well. I'll use them to organize things in my purse.


What about you, what did you get stitched up this week?

  1. I love all those items! Good job. Have you ever made pillow cases out of vintage sheets? I always scroll the thrifts for them, such neat patterns and it's easy to find twin sized flat sheets in like new condition. We will be driving from Illinois to Colorado this fall...already thinking about how much yarn to take!

    1. Gloria, I haven't been successful in finding any vintage sheets at thrift stores! It, however, has been in the back of my mind to stitch up some pillow cases out of them as soon as I find some. You sound like me ... have yarn, will travel!!!

    2. I also love looking for vintage sheets, I've never made pillow cases but it's a good idea. I do buy sheets but I do use them to make my dresses. I find material in the stores way to expensive. Where at a thrift store I can get a flat sheet for around $1.00.

  2. Pretty pillowcase and wash cloth. I have been using Peaches and Cream yarn for my dish cloths but think I will buy another brand when I use this up as the Peaches and Cream seems a little harder texture. I started a new quilt so sewed 15 mins or so one day! Been too busy since! Thanks for sharing your pretties. Nancy

    1. Nancy, I have been noticing that about Peaches and Cream yarn too and thought it was just me. A new quilt ... how exciting ... I love to quilt!

  4. Hi Patsy, I've done 16 days so far and I'm so glad you started this challenge. I finished a 2nd top for me, cut out some towel head turbans and need to start a rainbow dress for a granddaughter.

    1. Yeah Rhonda! Do you have a pattern or link to a tutorial of the towel head turbans?

    2. Rhonda, I would love to know how to do the towel head turbans as well. My granddaughters love them. Thank you.

  5. I managed to sew three pillowcases this week. I wanted a more "vintage look" for these to go with the white sheets. I was able to find some different pastel prints that looked somewhat old fashioned, with a coupon or from the clearance rack of course!

  6. It would just make me smile to lay my head on that sweet pillow case. My grandmother used to buy ladies dresses at yard sales and such and make pillow cases out of the skirt. Those were the dresses that had the full gathered skirts in the lovely cotton prints. I still have a good many of them in my linen closet.

  7. Dear Patsy, I took up your challenge, and have been sewing as often as I can manage. I've just completed a little doll, made from a preprinted doll panel, and she is ever so cute. I also embellished some pillowcases with lace and ruffles, which is always a super easy gift idea. I LOVE your Toile zipper pouches and your pink pillowcase. Beautiful work! Mimi xxx

    1. Mimi, your preprinted doll is so cute. Do you have a picture on your blog of your pillowcases, I would love to see them too!

  8. Beautiful projects, Patsy! I'm glad you are doing some things for yourself. I have a large tote for a purse and those zippered bags are the ticket to not having every lost in the bottom. I'm on Day 19, having taken several days off for VBS and company.

    Today I started up again, still working on repairing my son's old quilt for my grandson. That will take several 15 minutes segments!

    Love your projects! Love the challenge!

  9. I have spent countless hours in the evening crocheting grocery bag strips (plarn) into another sleeping mat to donate to the homeless. Our goal is to donate a dozen and since I'm in charge, I've been working on tense since late May! Not bad for someone who doesn't crochet!! Lol!
    I also am making "Twinkling Star" blocks from a MSQ video online to use up more of my scraps. I haven't decided whether it will be crib size or lap size yet!
    And lastly, I got out a quilt from my gift cabinet (how I love that part of my pantry) to give as a wedding gift tomorrow!
    All in all, a good week!

    1. gardenpat, you have had a good week! Don't you just love being able to pull a gift from the gift giving part of your pantry! In my opinion, it's the most fun part of my pantry to keep stocked!!!
