Design Wall Monday

The month of May is quickly moving along and today was the first day I've thought about the Monochromatic Challenge. I am combining this challenge with the Christmas gift sewing on the 25th this month. I am going to make another Chubby Charmer to have ready for a gift come Christmas time.

This is one I've been using. It's great for going back and forth to sewing days and I especially love to use it when I travel. It's the perfect size for your "personal" item. It easily holds my book, neck pillow, camera, iPod, etc. The main thing I change from the pattern is I use 4 1/2" charms instead of 5.


Last month I made one out of strips for the brown challenge. That one didn't last very long in the gift closet. I gave it to DS #3's girl friend for her birthday.

So this month I will make a red one. I'm still nursing my elbow so today I only gathered the red charms. I'm not sure about all the fabrics. Now that I'm looking at the pic, I think I'll go with some repeats and take out some of the fabrics that are bothering me. And I need to still find a fabric for the handles and lining. Maybe tomorrow.

I really like the reds, Melinda. (My favorite color.) It's going to be super pretty!
