Bags,Totes, Purse, Pillows & Pincushions

Thought ya'all would like the heads up on my shopping find.

I purchased this Better Homes and Gardens magazine with a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby yesterday. Naturally I stood and flipped through it prior to buying and knew it was a keeper. Kids, this one is worth full price!
It actually has cute, useful, do-able (is that a word?) projects. Several totes, pincushions, an adorable spa bag, ipod case and pillows.......just like the title to this blog says.

The above tote is made with Optic Blossom and Honeycomb fabrics in the Amy Butler Midwest Modern 2 collection. Pretty huh? This one is cute too. It uses grommets for attaching the straps

I've done my good deed for the day by telling ya about it, but you'll have to go get your own.


  1. Good morning. I just popped in from SITS to introduce myself. My name is Connie and judging from the info on your profile we have alot in common. I am an empty nester with four grown children who are all married.
    Although I don't sew as much as I used to I can surely drool over your creations. Beautiful.
    Nice to have met you.

  2. I have got to go find it! Thanks Glenna!

  3. OMGOSH, you are so talented. My Mom sews and I so wish I had the same ability.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog (WVU Chick). I still bleed blue and gold, although I have been gone almost 20 years. I married my HS Sweetheart, who joined the Air Force.
    I love meeting fellow Mountaineers.


  4. it looks like it is packed full of projects. i so wish that i could sew!

    {i am stopping by from SITS to say hi}

  5. Cute totes! I trying to decide if I want to make my own dog bed for the huskies or if it would just be easier and cheaper to buy one--I've never sewn anything before!


Let me feel the love! I Love comments!
