Portable Tea Party

I made a portable tea party bag for my niece Gracyn last night using this tutorial from! I don't have little kiddos to take pictures of while at play but you should check out Prudent Baby to see more of this:

I used the same Heather Ross Far Far Away 2 fabric and a similar purple solid. The only part of the tutorial I would have changed is to cut a strip off the fabric for the napkins FIRST rather than after cutting my circle. Somehow I made my circle in the almost exact center of my fabric and ended up with scraps rather than a big strip. I had to make my napkins 6.5 inches which were a bit smaller than in the tutorial but I think they will be fine. I still need to finish up the place mats but I don't seem to have a circle template that's a good size. Unfortunately I am super sick and the only thing I am capable of at the moment is going back to bed.

Happy Quilting (tomorrow)

I'm so sorry you're sick! :(

That portable tea party is SO cute! I love anything tea party - I don't suppose I'll ever grow out of that. :)
