Don’t forget your flip-flops!
These bags can serve a multitude of purposes, too. Handy little things, they are.

Here’s something nifty. This project was inspired by an item hanging in Michelle’s mom’s house. We’ve been meaning to make one for this blog, and Tsuru really lent itself to the idea. Click for the directions to make the Hanging Tray Tutorial.
This piece can also be used to hold cook books and other rather flat items. We hope you enjoy this project and if you make one of your own, we’d love to see!

We hope you enjoyed GeoCentric week! You may have notice we didn’t post on Friday and that’s because it’s taking some work to coordinate our little models. We’ll be sure to show you the last great project asap. In the meantime we have new fabrics to highlight! Nursery Flannel starts shipping tomorrow and we’ll be posting some cuddly goodies this week.

Our contoured burp cloth tutorial is probably the most popular link on this blog. We thought we’d share the Flannel Edition to inspire further!
This flannel is so super soft and comfy. It’s also nicely absorbent. So, these burp cloths won’t just look great, they’ll perform great, too!
You can make 4 of these with 4 fat quarters. Just mix n’ match them up.

|Pin right sides together (lining up the edges) Stitch around perimeter using a 1/2″ seam allowance.|
|Stitch all around leaving a 3-4″ opening in order to turn inside out.|
|Clip the corners.|
|Turn inside out. Using a pointy object (like a bone folder) push out the corners to make them neat. Crease the edges and press, making sure to that the base fabric does not peek past the edge of the top fabric. Pin to hold in place.|
|Topstitch 1/4″ from edge all around, including the area that was open- this will seal it closed. Press well. Finished!|
|Ladder Quilt – sewn by Christen Barber|
Yardage requirements for a 40″ w x 48″ h quilt top is:
- 1/4yd of each print (10 prints)
- 1 1/2yd of white (or solid accent)
This tutorial won’t go into backing and binding, but according to this handy calculator, you’ll need:
- 1/3 yd binding fabric (for 2″ binding strips)
- 1 1/3yd backing fabric
Of all prints, cut 2.5″h x 8.5″w rectangles. In your white/solid color accent, cut 1.5″ x 8.5″ strips.
