My FNSI Results

I fully intended to post this yesterday.. but I left the house early for a "quick trip" to the quilt store.. and returned home 4 hours later. I went to 3 different quilt stores and loved every minute of it.

On Friday night I made the "Ooo rah wallet" and an apron.

The pattern for the wallet (which happens to be part of the FNSI giveaway this week) is very well written. At first, I'll admit I was a little overwhelmed when I printed the pattern - but after I got all my fabric cut out, it went together SO EASY!!


And I have a great idea for this wallet. Do you have all those little punch cards and frequent shopper cards for all your favorite fabric stores (and coffee shops etc). I always kept them in a little stack in my wallet and then always felt the pressure at the register to find it.

Well not anymore!! This new little wallet is where I will be keeping all those cards!



There is even a little zipper pouch on the back for me to keep my fabric allowance.


And here is a little stack of fabric for my 2nd one!! It's going to be pretty. These wallets would make great stocking stuffers!!  



I also finished this apron.

The apron is from a pattern called "The Church Lady Apron". It's reversable.. and I fell in love with the wavy bottom.

Here is a close up of the fabric.. with little roosters..


Now I'm off to the grocery store.. that pantry doesn't fill itself. I will be back on later to announce the winner of the giveaway (2 winners).. so get your FNSI results posted!!

Love both of these terrific projects. And of course I have the apron pattern and have never even tried it. Looks terrific and your wallet looks so cute as well as practical.

Of course it takes at least four hours to visit three quilt shops. LOL..
The wallets do look great will try to make one. Thanks for the pattern.
What a cute apron too. Would match my placemats I made for FNSI..

What a GREAT idea to make a little wallet to keep all those punch cards and such! I can NEVER find the right one when I need it without going thru every single thing in my billfold! Genius... sheer genius!

Fabulous apron... makes me want to go whip some some dainties in the kitchen!

Your projects turned out great!
I have the Ooh Rah Wallet pattern and have my first wallet about half way done. After seeing yours and Debbie Cooks most recent wallets, I am inspired to get mine finished. I love the fabrics you used.
Thanks to you and Bobbi for hosting FNSI and to Debbie for sponsoring the give away.

Great idea for that wallet (although giggling at the zip pocket use) and love the apron. Last Friday was the Office Christmas do, and I'm meant to be out this Friday night too, but we'll see...

Nice! You were so productive! Love the wallet. (Note to self: must get that pattern!) The apron is super cute-- the fabric is just wonderful.

Kristen said...
