Keyka Lou

Have you heard of Keyka Lou?
Well, I had seen some bags around flickr made with her THIS and THIS and followed some links and found Michelle's online shop.  I am seriously a novice with bags, and I fell in love with her patterns...I got 4 of them when she was having an anniversary sale last month...this is my first attempt at the owl coin purse....

It will be gifted to my nephew this weekend for his birthday...along with this pillow I made him

I fussy cut some Heather Ross fabrics and backed it with the Prints Charming fabric the pillow is resting on, I wanted to do a zipper back, but in the end I did an envelope back...still need to work on zipper skills.  this is destined to be the softest pillow ever!!

I'm linking this project to Stash Project of the Month at Clover and Violet


  1. that owl bag is seriously cute.

  2. Those are such lovely gifts, especially the little bag :-)

  3. What a fabulous pillow! Found you through the Clover and Violet link follower! :)

  4. Man, you're a cool aunt! Don't tell Corrie!

  5. both projects are stinkin' cute!!!! I love the I Spy pillow in Heather Ross fabrics and the owl coin purse is adorable! You did a great job selecting fabrics and colors!

    I am also still learning zippers...I know there are great tutorials out there but I think I would do better with someone showing me in person.

  6. Pretty pillow- the colours look wonderful together!

  7. Wow! That pillow is gorgeous! Don't be scared of the zipper - just take your time and baste and it will come out perfect.

  8. Holy Cow Jenny -- you've been so busy while I've been gone. Where to start???

    --The AIDS quilt turned out beautifully -- great job!

    --Did you go to that estate sale on Indiana? I really wanted to go but I wasn't here. A friend of mine spent three days helping the family sort out the fabrics -- it must've been something.

    --Do you know if non-guild-members can go see Gwen?

    --If you need any zipper help just yell -- I love 'em!
