  1. Sandy Allen

    The most unusual thing I have ever sewn would be a brocade vest for my brother to wear at his wedding

  2. pinkernpunkin

    Oooh I can not wait to see all of the projects with such pretty fabric selections in the works. I guess the most unusual thing that I sewed or repaired was making a repair to fish netting- oh and a softball player’s sock before the next game. Hee! Hee! Have a lovely day, Brenda

  3. Susan Green

    It’s probably not that unusual, but sewing boy and girl scout patches on uniforms.

  4. Kathleen McCormick

    I made a bag for my son to carry his bow/arrow in the backyard.

  5. texasquiltgal

    Those are some gorgeous collections, especially Vintage Charms and Flour Sack! Looking forward to seeing them as bags. 🙂

  6. Quilting Tangent

    Sewed patches on a window screen.

  7. StitchingGrandma

    Love all these collections by IB. My most unusual was a camo vest for a two year old. Clips and buckles and tabs were all outside my skillet. Had a hard lesson but did learn about heavy duty size 18 needles ?

  8. Daryl

    I couldn’t find any blog posts for Susan. Clicked on her “blog” and only a slide show of he quilt photos came up. Didn’t see anywhere else her IB bog hop would be? I tried and gave up. Can’t wait to see your byAnnie Bag Brenda on your day.

  9. Helen Bowie

    The most unusual item I ever sewn was a mummy costume for my son when he was small…last minute started tearing strips of an old sheet and I sewed them to a jogging pants and sweatshirt.
