Inside you'll find some really fun and useful projects - not to mention a few tasty ones!!!  Get a sneak peek of Jacquelynne's newest fabric line, Peaceful Pastimes - TOO SWEET - along with 3 free patterns!!!  You will definitely want to get really crafty and dress up your own pretty notepad with just a few fun things you probably already have around the house and your imagination!  There's a FREE printable gift tags section!  And as always a couple of really yummy recipes!  This issue she shares her favorites of the wonderful summer photo contest!  Our own little Genevieve is there, totally rockin' her sunglasses and lookin' cute as a little button! :)

As promised, a few of the items included were designed by 'Yours Truly' - me - using Jacquelynne's wonderful and whimsical Cottage Charm fabric line!  My See-N-Go Bags are the perfect summer bags for us gals (and guys!) on the go with our projects!!!  See what you need to include at a glance and never again pick up the wrong project bag! As you can see in the below picture, my Happy Dance Socks project in progress fits perfectly in this one :)

This large See-N-Go Project Bag is roomy enough for your hand project, but definitely not bulky.  Approximately 10"x12", it fits nicely into a large carryall bag, or grab it up and carry it along all by itself.  I used one of Jacquelynne's lovely panel prints for the front side....

One of my favorite features of this bag is the inner zippered pocket, perfect for scissors, needles, or anything else you might want to find easily or keep safe from your delicate yarn or fabrics.....

I've already made 3 of these and I'm finding they are like candy - I can't make enough of them!!!

This little See-N-Go Pencil Bag is totally versatile!  Of course mine coordinates with the larger Project Bag :)  You can put pencils, tools, makeup - just about anything you want to carry along with you - in this bag!

Fully lined, so no messy strings!!!

I made one See-N-Go Pencil Bag using the vinyl which is the perfect see-through fabric, 
and then I also made one using screening!

Even though screening may not be quite as see-through as vinyl, I love using it in my bag projects because it is so easy to work with and is a little more durable too. You can find it on a roll at most hardware stores :)

My Selvedge Needlecase project was designed to provide a cute way to use up selvedges from this wonderful fabric line!  As you may know, I love to save my selvedges - they are just too darn cute to throw away!

And of course, they cost just as much as any other strip of your fabric - right?

Don't you just adore this cute little needlecase?
And it's SO EASY to make!!!  I'm already working on a few others as gifts :)

  1. I love your seem thru bags. Is there a way to get a pattern for these? I am a new follower and could not locate a link if you have tis pattern for sale.n. Your blog is lovely.

  2. Forgot you said you would have projects in it. You go, Girl!

    Funny selvage story: I was looking for the "perfect" fabric to bring all the elements of my C is for Chicken quilt together. Found a nice primary color plaid. When I looked at the selvage it said, "No Chickens Here"! I appliqued it to the quilt.
