Blogathon to Craftathon

Every year during the 24 Hours of Daytona race, Mr. Kiwi and some of his other sports bloggers/friends do a Blogathon with 24 straight hours of blogging - including coverage of the race and any other sporting event that happens to be on during it.  This leaves me with a good bit of time on my hands for the weekend. So I had my own mini Craftathon.

So far it's been a pretty productive weekend. I've gotten one Convertible Clutch (by LBG Studio) made.  It's the first time I've made this pattern and I LOVE it. The bag is such a great size (I feel like a lot of clutches - or at least a lot I have seen - are too small to hold everything I need for an evening) and I love the versatility. I'll be using this one at my cousin's wedding next month in Florida.

I also made a few Kindle Fire sleeves that will be up in my shop soon. I got a Kindle Fire in December and immediately made a simple little sleeve for it. It's slightly padded for a little extra protection, and fits the Kindle nice a snug. No need for a flap or button.

This is the first one I made. I love the London Tube fabric. I'm hoarding more of it :-)

And apparently I have a thing for yellow linings, hehe.

Not part of my Craftathon is weekend, but I made up another 241 Tote from Noodlehead.  I really love this pattern. I made 2 for my sister and sister-in-law this past Christmas (of course, I neglected to take pics, but my SIL was sweet enough to send me a few), and this one is going up in my shop.

Christmas present for my SIL

There has also been a lot of this going on this weekend :-)

Hope you had a Craft-tacular weekend!
