More Pillows

These are just a few more pillows that I have made recently.  My sewing streak has came to an end.  Life.  Busy.  Missing it.  I can’t wait until my next sewing spree and will be planning everything I have to make.  Yes, have to make.  Some things are like that for me, I can’t pass [...]

Felt Poinsettia

I made this felt poinsettia to wear over Christmas.  I like working with felt and it is a versatile medium.  I made five flower shapes, keeping the sizes just a little bigger from the previous and two leaves.  I attached them altogether in the center then hand sewed the silver beads.  I didn’t have time [...]

Catch-all

I saw a tutorial quite a while back for this catch-all and just couldn’t get it out of my mind.  I made a few for Christmas presents this year.  They are easy, fun and look great!  Plus it is perfect to have a designated spot for keys!

Pot Holders

I made some pot holders a few years ago for Christmas presents.  I was looking thru all of my left over scraps of fabric and decided to make some more.  I always amazed how simple this project is although it takes longer than anticipated.

Pillows

I have been able to get some chunks of time to sew recently!  I have rally enjoyed it.  My husband had wanted some suiting fabric for a random project and after seeing it sit around for awhile, I decided that it was mine!  If you have ever seen my apartment, we are very gray friendly!  [...]
