Green Eyed Monster-Envy That Is...

When I first bought my machine and was reading my friend Cole's blog, I saw a fabric eye-glass case that she had made. I. LOVED. IT. and wanted it sooooo bad, but it was for a 5x7 hoop, and as you remember I only had 4x4. I just kept telling myself, "self, you will make that some day!". Then I started reading Terri's blog and she too had made the cases for gifts, and again, I was envious, so I bet you can't guess the very FIRST ITEM that I bought only 20 mintues after getting home with my new machine.....yup...you guessed it....the fabric eye-glass case from Pickle Pie Designs!

I made my first one the next morning (I got home with my machine around 10:30, and my husband said I had to wait :(), and I think it turned out GREAT! I gave it to my sister Kinley for Valentine's Day. (Excuse the bad picture, I am horrible at taking pics, and my husband wasn't home!)

Then I finally made myself one two weeks later!

Then on Sunday I recieved an order for a boy's version, and was super excited! I think it turned out great!!

Now, I am just envious of their sewing ability, I wish I could say even after taking my sewing class that I signed up for, that I should/could/would be able to sew as good as them, however I know I am not patient, and I can only assume that you would have to have major patience for the items that they make!

Well I am off to buy some designs.....
Till next time!


  1. They only way to learn to sew is just do it. Just sew, sew, sew. You can do it. Give it time.

  2. Those turned out great! I love making them, too.

  3. Thank you so much for the sweet compliments. Your cases look awesome! I really love that file! It's such a great gift! And...just like Nicole's mom said, you can totally do it. I just started teaching myself ~5 months ago...hadn't ever even touched a needle and thread before! That should offer some comfort =). I also email Nicole about 85 questions or so a week. But ya know, what are cousins for =). I really like the fabric on the case you did for yourself!!
