More little projects

Busy few days working in my studio and surfing the web for patterns. I don't know if I would enjoy living in the mountains if I didn't have my computer and IPad to keep in touch, do research and of course shop.

MM and I recently began playing cards at our community clubhouse on Friday nights. We play Hand and Foot in which you are dealt two stacks of cards, one is your hand and the other is your foot. You play one stack of cards at a time which means you need a place to keep your "foot". The card table is small so it's hard to leave it there, some people put it on the floor but that isn't ideal either. I noticed that many of the players had made a pouch to wear around your neck and put there cards in that so I came home and made one.

I took the back pocket off a pair of jeans, added a patch and voila, a card holder. I have made one for MM out of camouflage material but didn't take a picture of it.

I also finished a little Crazy quilted purse.


It turned out smaller than I wanted, but it will hold my cell phone, keys and debit card so I'll get some use out of it. I think it turned out cute for a first attempt.

I'm working on a couple of other purses made from jeans. I need to stay off Pinterest I find too many things I want to try.

Til next time, Ronda


  1. I've been saving pockets of all kinds from "retired" clothing, to use in bags and other sewing projects. Hard to let all the construction of a nice pocket go to waste!
    And I know what you mean about me, it's a blessing and a curse!!! ;)

  2. I really love the quilted purse! That would be my size of quilting project.

  3. Thanks Andrea, the purse needs to be just a little bigger, but it was fun to make.

  4. I like the look of your new card purse.

    1. A perfect solution to your foot problem. Foot cards that is. lol. Your little crazy patch purse looks cute.
      Thanks so much for your Valentine Day greeting. Happy Valentine Day to you Rhonda.

  5. Good morning, your purses are adorable! congrats on your win too-hugs I hope you get rain soon
