Black and White Blog Hop




Thanks to Carla of  Creatin' in the Sticks for organizing this great blog hop. Welcome to my stop today!


I chose to make an open wide zippered from a tutorial by Noodlehead. First I gathered all my black and white fabrics from my stash and scraps. I made a little Churn Dash block to put in the center on the front, even smaller than in my previous blog post . The rest of the panels were made in an improvisational style.

I quilted the panels with the walking foot using white thread.


Since we received loads of snow lately, I took the pouch outside for a photo shoot. Of course I added a black zipper to the pouch


The backside has lots of white polka dots. The striped "ribbon" goes all around the pouch.


The pouch is lined with a grey/black/white fabric.

A few years back I made a couple of other black and white projects, first this cute clutch. This one has accompanied me several times to dress-up parties.


These cute owl pot holders are just darling. The greatest birds for keeping my hands from burning when handling hot cookware and bakeware.



Thanks for visiting my stop, and make sure to visit the other bloggers showing off their great projects today:
