Travel iron carrier and pressing pad

My travel iron seems to take forever to cool down to transport home from sewing events.  This folding case holds my Black and Decker travel iron and when unfolded, makes a great pressing surface.  I used two layers of Insul-Brite between the red fabric and the white canvas.

Selvage chemo cap

During a sewing weekend with friends we made chemo caps for a friend that is fighting brain cancer.  This cap was meant to cheer her up with something to remind her of sewing and made with selvages from our projects this weekend.

Gold and green small quilt

This was another kit from Connecting Threads.  Travel for work has been crazy with little time for sewing so this small project fit the bill.  Not sure what I am going to do with it so will put it in the gift pile.  If I keep this up, I should be in good shape for Christmas this year.

Big pocket 3-D flower tote bag

Another kit from Connecting Threads.  This bag has shower curtain grommets for the bag strap and the flowers and leaves are made with fusible fleece sandwiched between two layers of fabric.  The flower is attached in the center and the leaves through sewn veins.
