For Sale... A Pocket Petal Filofax!!...SOLD !

Update....I sold my mom ! Haha she saw ..she wanted.... I'm doing two part posts here. One for a Filofax and one for my sewing stuff....
I debated on selling this.. I bought two of them last November ...One was a gift but I had got them on sale.. I see on filofax usa site they are on sale for $8.80 right now.. so that is little cheaper then what I bought mine for... On the United Kingdom site they are 9 pounds.. (sorry did not have that little mark on my keys!!)  wait is that right?? pounds? euro?? ugh sorry I'm not sure...Please correct me ...
As I said I'm debating to sell this as its so cheap now on line.. So here is the deal.. I will sell it for $7 plus shipping.... I will have to weigh and stuff to find out shipping costs..I will try to do it as cheap as I can.... OH as of today on the US site they are out of stock..
Ok here are pictures...
                                  Its a Black Petal Pocket.. you can read up on details HERE .
I did a close up on this.. on that top red petal there is a slight nail scratch.. yes I did it..first day I had it out and my stupid finger nail scratch it a bit.. but its not noticeable but in the light like this.. 

There is a back clear pocket with a pen tab..

This is the front opened .. 
It comes with all that came with it..I didn't use any pages.. (2013 year)

A little sewing...

It was good to get to sew ... If you follow my Instagram you got a sneak peek to some things I'm doing..If not.. then well here you go.. lol
I mentioned about a tutorial .. I have the product finished.. just need to get it wrote up..Its coming I promise!!! But this is what it will be...

Do you have a lot of these little buggers? on your key rings? I think I found like 5 from stores not even open anymore lol . I got so tired of going through these looking for the one I need...I want it like NOW not have to go through all of them...
I came up with this cutey..
Its a wallet .. to hold all those little buggers and the bigger full size cards as well...

Here is the open has a "page " with clear pockets to put the little cards inside..
the bigger pockets are behind .. or you can put cash inside it.
All neat and tidy.. I do not like working with vinyl but its only 2 strips and it worked well for me this time..I use  a lot of these cards . Maybe most people don't so I don't know... lol 


I made a stack of pot holders today.. A friend asked for some and I just went crazy cutting out some 9 x 9 squares from older fabrics.. and I had like 5 yards of the Insul-Bright batting to use for these..( Joanns had a mega sale one day..)
I put a few labels on them. not all .I didn't do anything fancy with them.. I did sew the edges twice around.. These will go to a good home =0)

The pretty stack of finished ones..
and my stack not finished... 

Have a good week!!!
Oh.. Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!!! is coming up!! I will participate this time!!! I will be doing a give away!! And I think you will like it.... oh yes...

A few months ago I purchased a ipad...I loved it..but I got to wanting a new smartphone and I couldnt have both when they can do the same thing..and the phone was carry everwhere in my bag friendly.... I studied my phone options, sizes and brands..I sold my ipad to my niece and went for my new smartie phone... and simply flat out love it! I do everything on blog read..take pictures...well you know I'm sure...I wish I went for a bigger screen size but it does well for my short fingers.
I am blogging from my phone this post. I downloaded the app and ok its great! I can insert pics even....
I'm not sure how the picture will show up...if it will becuz Ive not figured that part out...
Another thing I want to say.. I had the flu..I guess I didn't think that was enough so I got my self some good old pneumonia.. hmm yay fun! gosh I was sick..but I am recovering and soooo miss my sewing!  My tutorial I promised was put back some but I did work on it alittle teeny bit!
One more thing..for comments I had to add the funky word button insert before you comment. I'm sorry as I hate putting those in myself but I was getting bombed with spam and one made it past my spam box..grrrrrr
Ok I will be back! Have a great weekend!

Easy Sling Bag testing!!!!

The Flu bit me in the bum, not once but TWICE in one week! A week ago last Friday I started symptoms of   a cold but turned out I had Respiratory flu.. I was given better some what.. then BOOM I got the fun flu.. with the bathroom breaks one too many type of flu.. I'm hoping I got a handle on it and starting to recover. I AM making myself recover!  I was able to hold down some cereal , not a good choice but had to see for myself.. so far so good! I weighed myself this morning.. I lost 5 pounds since last Monday.. 

Ok on to important stuff!!! 

Right before I got sick I was given the opportunity to test a fun little bag pattern! If you followed me for some time you are familiar with Jane over on ProjectsbyJane . She has some really cute patterns and very easy to follow even if you are a starter outer sewer!
Here is what I made.. she gave me the option of the quilted flap.. CUTE!
It called for a wooden or metal ring for the strap.. I wanted the wooden one SOOO bad but of course none to been seen around my parts... 
This bag is plenty big for your everyday things.. and light on the shoulder! It is a cross body sling bag so you are hands free! 
You can check out her BAGS of the same pattern HERE . This bag comes with three flap options...
She also added ON THE SPOT download to all her patterns in her shop!!! 
I mentioned getting a tutorial together.. That is my next step.. Hint.. something to keep certain little "things" organized . I use these "things" every single day! lol hmmmmm
OH OH almost forgot! I am on Instagram!  
I might be posting some sneaky peeks of my tute from there.. =0) soooo go follow ! I'm always looking for new people to follow as well!!!
