Rush hour

Red, black and white fabric =bliss!  I was unable to get the Rush Hour  fabric but it is definitely on my wish list. I have been oohing and aahing over each and every post!
I surprised myself and actually had my project finished right after I signed up for the hop - it was my sorta sister in law's birthday and I found just the right gift.

I had the Mickey fabric on hand from our
 Disneyland  tour at the nursing home -  I made this skirt
 for the Minnie Mouse Mother's Day tea. 
It only has a little yellow so it works for the hop right?)
 
My first project is (drum roll please)  a loyalty card holde I found the tutorial from a lemon squeezy home on Pinterest of course.  My wallet won't close because of all those loyalty cards and I can never find my Shopko card or Starbucks when I need it. 


next time I will have to use a non directional print!
 With this handy dandy pouch (and me remembering to place the cards where they go)  I can find them in a jiffy.  There are alphabetized tabs to sort the gazillion cards to make them so much easier to find. 

 Since I started using it there's no more searching for the card and holding up the line extending Rush Hour. And it worked up sew quick -I made two in  an hour and now that I know what I'm doing they will be even quicker. A great "twas the night before" project.  

 
 
 
I added some quotes to the cards just
for fun. The next ones will be made
 from fun cardstock.
  
As  I was looking at Tuesdays participants, I decided I needed another project - I just finished Emma bean's owl quilt and was thinking of making her a bag to match but with the hop coming I decided to make one for me first. Emma's bag will be coming next week.  I saw a picture of an owl bag and decided to make my own.  The gingham wings are from some shoulder pads I removed from my dress the other day because one got twisted. 


.
 I have a Bazaar coming up in November and plan to make a few more owl bags- I will be adding a pocket and making it a bit larger and some card holders to sell.
 
The owl  loyalty card holder I made for me! I figured out
 how to get the owls right side up- sorry Mickey!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks to Madame Samm and Carol for putting all this fun together for us! Be sure to stop by and check out the other amazing Rush Hour projects!



 
 
Whoo needs a cup of coffee? Owl get it!
