Oh, and some penguin fabric!
Thanks to Wendy of Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life, who sent me these fun penguins last year sometime! They've been marinating for awhile, until this week and I decided I had to drop everything and make...
an Open Wide Zipper Pouch! This tutorial from Noodlehead is the very first zipper pouch I ever made, and I'm sure this won't be the last one. You can never really have too many of these, right? I hadn't made one of these in awhile, so I struggled a bit with getting the zipper sewn in correctly, but it all worked out in the end.
This measures about 8.5 inches wide by 7.5 tall. I made it to my own dimensions, based on the fabric I had and added the contrasting bottom just for fun!
The lining is a fun black on white swirls.
This was a true DrEAMi project - started last Sunday, finished on Monday!

To finish out the month of May, this week I completed all of the arrows for the Follow Your Own Path QAL, also at mmmquilts. Time to get those rows together with the gray background!
In scrappy sewing this week, I added a couple more exclamation marks to the collection for this month's Full Stop row.
And two more crumb hearts, this time in pink!

The Harmony Hand-pieced QAL is coming to an end with the final link-up already up at Elm Street Quilts. I finished up the quilting on my version this week, and all that's left is to sew the binding. That will be this weekend's slow-stitching job!
