Design Wall Monday 6-3-13

Here it is Monday again.  I've been sewing away on different stuff but what I want to show you is my finish of a new little project.  I got the embroidery module out and did this cute quilt saying.  Then I made it into a cover for Bubbles.  This was really easy to make with great directions.  Check out Purls and Pleats blog for the well written tutorial.  Here's what I learned making this one.  Don't use curtain lining -- it has wonderful drape but fabric should have more body for this cover.  I should have moved the design up a little farther on the front piece.  And, I was just a bit generous on the measurements.  This one could be a bit smaller and still work well.  But honestly, not a big deal.  I foresee a few more of these in the near future.  

I've got several other things in the works but I won't be sharing them until later. Darn, I hate having to keep secrets!  But I shall. 

Hey, I'm happy to report I did pretty well on my goals this week.
