Sew What! Reader Showcase Week Four Wrap Up!

This has taken a bit longer to get to than I thought, but it has been a very busy week! The day after we returned from our mini trip in the city the Mister says to me "Tomorrow is my mom's birthday." Oh crap! With all of the hustling and bustling I completely forgot! And it was a holiday. (Which I remembered as I was walking out the door. So after the trip, the holiday, the birthday (Which I shppoed for, made a gift and a cake for in record time!) and the invites making (still think they look fabulous!) I can finally show off YOUR submissions to the Sew What! week four challenge aptly named Carry It!

Remember when I said that Cynthia (My incredibly talented co-conspirator) made a delightfully simple version of the doll carrier? This is it. Is it not absolutely gorgeous? Loving the fabric choices here. And the brilliance of the simplicity. It is now on my to-do list for sure!

The Paisley Abby submitted this wonderful diaper clutch. Made from Moda Sock Monkey fabric, the diaper caddie easily slides into most purses and diaper bags for easy and compact travel.The caddy has two pockets that hold diapers and wipes. The chenille side is a changing pad. Loving it! Now, if only cloth diapers fit into clutches am I right mamas?

It would seem that doll toting was a high priority because MamaTave submitted this wonderful doll sling modeled after her own baby sling. I am pretty sure I had a Cabbage Patch Kid with that exact same hair as a child!

It is not always about babies and their dollies. Maekellan submitted this lovely lunch bag. I wish I could give you a better description of her projects but the Flickr photos are lacking. I do ove the colours she chose, and I think the smaller piece might be reusable food wraps?...

 This lovely toile shopping bag was made by Angela Pea. And, she didn't make just one nope. She made twelve! Grocery shopping has never looked so fabulous!

There you have it ladies and gentlemen. Week four wrap up. Now, I know from emails with some readers that there are other submissions in the works, some just got busy and some got busy and finished just in time for their camera to crap out, so this will not be the last you see of Sew What! challenge submissions.

I want to thank all of the participants who helped make this a resounding success! The readers who managed to finish each challenge right up until the last one, you are especially awesome because you kept me motivated to sew and create with you. (The thing about sew alongs of your own creation is you have to see them through in a timely fashion!) So thank you again, I have a gorgeous skirt, a beautiful clutch, a sunshiny pin cushion (which I use regularly) and now Wednesday has the most adorable carry-all for her dolls. All with your support and encouragement. So thank you!
