Home Sweet Home Sewing

 Hi friends! It's my day on Helen's Home Sweet Home Sewing book tour!!!  I'm so happy that Helen asked me to participate along with a group of really delightful makers.  So many inspiring  versions of projects from Helen's book.  I love her style, and her lovely photos on instagram are so charming, she's a happy follow.

For my project, I chose the cherry zip pouch.  It's super cute and of course how I can I resist anything cherry?  I wanted to use my cute Atsuko Matsuyama cross stitch fabric  that I ordered from Sunny Day Supply.  (I maybe heard a rumor there could be more on order???) and I paired it with some  Amy Smart Sugarhouse Park cherries and Pat Sloan's Morrison Park for the leaves.  I topped it off with a cherry zipper pull from The Cherry Chick's etsy shop DecorativeSewingPins.

 I was a bit worried, it's been a while since I installed a zipper in ANYTHING but it went in like a breeze.  Kristyne also made this little zip bag, making hers slightly larger to to accommodate her fancy cherry zipper from Sunny Day Supply.  I have one of those hoarded but was a little apprehensive, but now that I see how easy it is, well I'll be actually using it.  SHOCKING!

 It was a lot of fun to make. Helen's book has great instructions and illustrations to help you through it all.  There are so many great projects, I had to give the patchwork bag a try as well.  I have a nice little collection of that pretty cording and was anxious to use it.  SO CUTE.  And even though I cheated and used my patchwork panel fabric, I think it turned out sweet.  Another great project in Helen's book.

This new book by Helen is a great addition to my collection of Helen's books.  Thank you to Helen and Tuva Publishing for sending it to me.  I had so much fun making these two projects, and look forward to working on that cute Little Houses quilt on the cover.  So charming, and you all know how much I love machine applique.  If you want to see more of the projects you can follow the #homesweethomesewing hashtag on Instagram, lots of pretty makes there!  

Hope you are well friends! xop
