As far as fabric flowers- how many are one FO? Does it depend on style/size? (all made with scraps- even if really long, thin fabric (like some are 3-5x 30+ but some are smaller). I am just doing one style today, but my fabric flower stash is dwindling and I would like to bulk it up again.

That's a good question! I really want to make some with the scraps I have too!

Made my first tote bag! Took a while but I figured out how to box the corners! Woohooo! I even got red white and blue in it too! Just need to plan on making them a bit bigger for groceries. Also need to learn how to make cleaner edges... I think if I did the liner after the bag it would have been neater

Those look great, Kayla!!!

Made 12 more wipes today. Those first 20 or so I made are falling apart so bad- didn't think about fraying, etc.- which stinks, because I made about 40 for a friend in that style too- I am scared to ask her what they look like

Thank you! How'd you do the wipes? I've t&t some of mine and haven't had a problem... Some of the other ones just zigzag stitched around are starting to fray

The first few literally just had a single stitch around the edge. The next few were zigzagged around the edge. The second stitch lasted 2-3 washings, the zig-zagging are struggling- so I made ones that are turned into each other and then top stitched. (dont remember what the t+t is)
