Red and Purple Purse

After Claire requested a purse, I asked if Lucy needed one too. Julie checked with her and of course she did. I expected she would want one like Claire's, but no, she requested one "all purple and red." This one is more "red and purple," but I was working with what I had to find coordinating red and purple fabrics. Most of my purples are very monochromatic, so the lining is purple. I didn't think a purple button was sufficient, so I added the rick rick. I doesn't match the button perfectly, but it adds a nice pop of purple.

Pink and Gold Unicorn Purse

Claire asked if I could make her a bag in this style, but with a pinker fabric than the one I originally made for her when she liked red. I sent photos of the pink fabrics I had on hand and she chose this one with gold unicorns on it. I added some gold rick rack I had left over from my tree skirt. I don't think it needed it, but I was adding rick rack to Lucy's, and I wanted to make them as similar as possible. I usually top stitch after the bag is completely assembled, but in this case I stitched the rick rack on before I sewed the two sides together and just left it at that. The magnetic closure seems to work just as well. I would've liked to find a gold or unicorn button, but that can be changed out later.

Unicorn Stockings


These unicorn fabrics have both shown up in other projects. The pink unicorn fabric was the back of the unicorn doll quilts, and I used the purple unicorn fabric for Lucy's bed sign.

Mermaid Stockings


The Christmas stockings were hung in Lucy's bedroom and when Julie told her they'd be coming down after Christmas, she said, "No! I love them!" This prompted me to make some non-Christmas-themed stockings she could keep up after Christmas.

Reindeer Stockings

This is my favorite stocking design from this year's batch. I still have plenty of this fabric if I come up with another use for it.
