Finished Projects

I made new table runners for my kitchen table and bookshelf. I LOVE them.

 Remember when I commited to this impossible task? Well I survived it! We ended up making them over three mutual nights and the girls loved making them! yay! I took my camera every time we did it but didn't take a SINGLE picture, argh. I think a total of 13 girls and 2 adults made covers. One leader and one young woman though for different reasons weren't able to finish theirs so I brought them home and finished them for them. So here are the two I finished so you can see what they looked like.

I really enjoyed helping the young women make them  but couldn't have done it without my friend Ashley! Oh my goodness she was a lifesaver!

So now I have a tutorial and patterns for a large quad, small quad (both without the flap), triple +bible and the large triple + bible. I would LOVE to share them since I put so much work into it and I just want people to use it. I would say they are very simple to make, a beginner project for sure, so if ANYONE wants a copy let me know and I will e-mail it to you. Seriously, let me know, I don't want all my hard work to go to waste :) They only take half a yard of fabric and abour half a yard of interfacing, two inches of velcro and that's all. I would also be willing to make them for anyone who wants one for $10 (basically the cost of the fabric, interfacing, and shipping). So if you want a pattern and isntructions (for free) leave a comment and your e-mail and I'll get it to you (I would put it on here but I don't know how to put a word document on here). Or if you want me to make you one let me know :)
