Child's "I Spy" Crazy Quilt

I made this quilt for a friend's little girl (whom I hear loves it).  It is one made using scraps of fabric from many past projects.  It is machine pieced and quilted.  It measures approx 38 in X 48 in. 

 

The “horse feed” actually came from a cotton feed sack.  You can see Winnie the Pooh here also.

 

In this section you can find a pink poodle, other dogs, a snow man, poinsettia, sunflower, and robot.

 

In this one there’s a monkey, owls, zebras, fish, and more.


The back is pieced using two fabrics. 

 

The middle section is full of cowboys, chuck wagons, etc.

Felted Shoulder Bag

This is my first attempt at felting something I knit.  The pattern is The "Don't Worry" Felted Shoulder Bag by Catherine Hughes.  The yarn is a blend of  Bernat Pebblespun (deep teal color) from my estate sale stash and Rowan Kidsilk Haze (black).  I forgot to measure the bag after I finished knitting and before felting it.  After felting it measured about 10 in X 12 in.

 

To make the strap more stable I pulled a strip of woven strapping through and machine stitched it in place where it attached to the bag.  I made one end "free" with a key

 

The bag is lined.  The magnetic closure is one I "harvested" from an old purse.

White Snowtracks Cap

This hat was made using white yarn from the estate sale stash I bought earlier this year.  The pattern is Snowtracks Cap by Timothy Peters.  I’m not sure exactly what the yarn is as there was no label.  I think it is wool or a wool blend.

 
The hat can be worn either unfolded or folded.

Rainbow Quilt Finished!

I finished the afghan size quilt made from the tails of the T-shirts used to make Madi's quilt.  The colors are those of the rainbow, hence the name of the quilt.  The finished quilt measures 52 in X 63 in.  It is machine pieced and quilted.

 

This photo shows the flowers quilted in each color square.

 

Here's a bit of the back of the quilt.
