Some Swatch Books!

(First off, I missed Finish It Up! Friday!  Where is my head?  I am so sorry! Since there are only two days left in the challenge I am going to switch it to Monday to show you all my progress over the whole challenge!  So come back Monday to let us know how the challenge went!  What would you do differently?  Are you pleased with the progress you made?)

On to a little project...

I made these little Swatch Book covers!  I used the Keyka Lou pattern that I bought last week.  I have been working on so many quilty projects lately that I forgot how fast a simple sewing project can be!  I had so much fun making these!

I made this little owl one for my partner in the Doll Quilt Swap as a little extra, and I put them upside down!  Boo!  I didn't notice until it was all nicely sewn together.  Hopefully, my partner won't mind. *bangs head against wall*

I thought that while I was making one that I might as well make a couple of extra ones.  This one I made out of some ticking. 

I love the simple look of this one.

This one is bright and citrusy!

These little notebooks are perfect for using as a swatch Book (just staple your little fabric samples inside!), grocery lists, or any other notes you like to keep handy.

The first two I have put up in my Etsy shop!  I can't remember the last time I made anything for the shop!  I still also have a few patterns left in the shop at 50 % off from my pattern selling days if you are interested in taking a peek!

Happy weekend!  


  1. Those are so cute - I'm going to have to get that pattern - perfect for grocery lists!!

  2. Kinda thinking I'm going to have to make some of these myself! They are too cute!

  3. These are great Meg! Maybe the owl one is for a lefty!!

  4. i am just green with envy! where do you find the time?!

  5. very cute! what kind of notebook did you put in them?

  6. I thought maybe the owl one could be for a lefty too! Or just.. a righty who likes to open things on the left. Hey, why not. :)
