More of Those Littles

A ruler sleeve wasn't necessarily something I knew I needed, but when I saw Krista/
@poppyprint share a tutorial recently, I quickly decided I did. Add in that I promptly added a 4" x 14 1/2" ruler to my birthday wishlist, and thanks to Rachel/@snippetsofsweetness, I now have one that I'm definitely enjoying using. SO many folks commented on Krista's post that this was their favorite size ruler, that I had to try it. Go figure.

Anyway, I was totally up for a little quilt-as-you-go. Use up batting scraps? Oh yeah. And curate a mini collection of my favorite Carolyn Friedlander prints? For sure. The sleeve was definitely a fun, quick sew.

Next up was a small Olivia Pouch for my nine-year-old grandgirl. She'd asked me to make her an "emergency kit" to keep in her desk at school - you know, to hold the essentials like ChapStick, a few Band-Aids, and a tiny flashlight. Purple was the clear color request, and this new-to-me pattern from s.o.t.a.k handmade, is one I'm glad to now have in my repertoire.

Grandgirl enthusiastically approved, and of course I was happy that she was happy. All good.


  1. Great little projects!
    Say yes to Carolyn's prints.

  2. Fun small projects! I've never heard of the 4" x 14" ruler! I'll have to check it out.

  3. you've been busy! 4x14" huh? hmmmm

  4. That ruler sleeve is awesome - I love the prints. And isn't it nice when the grand-kids are happy with their crafty gifts? :-)
