Luggage Tag

Again, not really a challenge...but this one I like!  Perfect timing too since I am currently out of town and needed a new luggage tag. 

I have a small obsession with houndstooth and had to incorporate that into this tag. 

I also had some scraps of this great fabric with glamorous ladies in sparkly red dresses.  Perfect!! 

Add a little vinyl pocket and Voila!  A luggage tag!

This would also be a unique way to package a gift card!!

Kidlet Hooded Towel

I can sum this one up in three words...quick, easy and fun!  (I apologize for my model, but I don't have a little tot running around to pose for these I had to improvise!)

I know, I know, I probably use those words a little too often to describe so many of these projects.  But, it's true.  When I started this journey, I was so excited to learn new sewing techniques and really expand my horizons.  I am hoping as we get closer to the end, these projects will truly become more challenging.  I wouldn't quite say that I am disappointed, but I am definitely not inspired.  Maybe I am just experiencing a mid-challenge crisis and the best is yet to come!  Let's hope!
