Oh Happy Days!

Here it is... October 1 and it's time for another great project for you.  This month we are going to work on an adorable "Best Buddies" wool zipper bag! 

I am so excited about this project!  This is one of the first ones I designed and it's one of my favorites.  I am going to post some photos for you so when you begin to work on your project bag, you can refer to the BAAA WOOL CLUB page on the Olde Green Cupboard website for color, placement etc.  

I used 1" masking tape to quilt the back of my bag.  If you want a different design - go for it!  Oh... by the way... are you wondering why your fabric is different?  It will more than likely always be different!  We are all making the same style of bag - but each one will look different when finished!  That's the way I roll!  If we wanted them to all be the same - we would have purchase it already made!  I like that each of you design your items different and have fun doing such.

This is where I stitched down my  inside wool seam so it would not unravel or fray.

I doubled my thread when attaching my button "flowers" so the stems and leaves were thicker.

"sniff, sniff"... can't you just see me wiggling my nose?  I love bunnies... they are so soft and sweet!  I remember my grandmother would raise them and it was so fun to play with the babies!  Now... as they grew bigger they were a little nervous when you held them...and they could sure make those back feet go and try to kick you!

Two tone pumpkins are my favorite... and so are the gray/white ones.  I love to go to the pumpkin patch this time of the year and pick them out... along with the funky gourds they have.  They look adorable in an old tray or bowl.  I just noticed one of the churches close to my house has them ready to purchase.  I'll be making a visit to them soon.  They look so awesome on my old oak coffee table !  I'll post a picture on our page when it's all finished so you can see it.

and then... there is the famous sheep.  This little guy's eyes appear to be a bit glazed over.... hhhmmm... wonder if he had a bad night?   
So... as you begin this project - ask yourself what you plan to use your "Best Buddies" zipper bag for?  I can't decide... I'm thinking it's perfect to hold my tape measure, thread, small scissors, needles, etc. so I will always know where they are!  

HAPPY STITCHING!!!  Be sure to send me photos of your finished project... and remember to call me if you need help with the instructions.



Good Morning Gals!  I am currently at the Camp Blanding Retreat for 5 days and I'm finishing up the project directions for all of you.  I do want to be sure that each of you are "subscribed" to the website.  If you have not done so, go to and look to the right side of the main home page screen.  Scroll down a bit and you will see on the right where it gives you the option to sign up for notices and information shared on the blog/website.  

I am in the process of also making some videos for you to watch related to this project.  Since I'm somewhat in the dark as to the skill level of many of you, I don't want to leave you helpless in working on the project.  Some of the instructions are just simply easier to show you than writing the instructions.  

I will email each of you and let you know when we have videos for you.  You will simply go to the website: and look to the right of the HOME screen.  Click on the BAA Wool Club and it will take you directly to the items I have posted for you.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please call me.

Thanks so much for hanging in there with me.  I have the wool in your envelopes to mail for those of you that notified me it was missing in your kit.  Some of you were also thinking your Freezer Paper was missing - not the case.  It's already printed with the pattern and stapled to your instructions.

Have fun and keep on stitchin'

We'll share recipes, videos, fun articles, and funny 'stuff' to keep us all laughing, photos of our finished projects, tips and tricks, along with -  "these are my favorites", and more.  It will be an interactive group - eventually we will all know each other and have a blast together!  To the best of my knowledge - I'm not sure there are any other clubs like this one is going to be!!!
