My new 1/2 yard pack of Ginger Blossom from Fabric.com came last week. Oh my! It’s beautiful!!! But, what should I make with it??? I have no idea. The fabric is wonderful though. Buy some, you will not regret it! It looks like they are already out of the 1/2 yard assortment packs though. Hopefully, they will re-stock soon! If you have any ideas as to what I should do with this lovely fabric, please let me know.
How is a crafty mama supposed to resist $2/yard snuggle flannel at Joanns?
I love the owls! I think I’m going to make the boys flannel lounge pants. I did some “recycled” ones a few weeks ago (using Daddy’s old ones, and making use of the fact that they were already hemmed) and I think I might make some from scratch now that I’ve done it once.
But, the squirrel and acorn fabric was the reason I went to the store in the first place. I bought the adorable wooden acorns from Caseys for my youngest son’s preschool class, and I wanted to make a cute little drawstring bag to store them. Aren’t they adorable?
So easy too. I just cut a rectangle about 8″ by 16″. Sewed a pocket for the drawstring on the top of each side. Then folded it in half, inside out, and sewed up the sides, keeping the drawstring pocket open. Sewed a little line on both sides of the bottom to make it a little flatter when sitting up. (See Super Eggplant’s tote bag tutorial here.) Turned it right-side out, and then threaded the cording through. To thread the cording, you thread one piece all the way around. Then, start on the opposite side and thread another piece all the way around. Then knot each piece. I put a little tacky glue on the ends, so hopefully, it won’t fray or become unraveled. We’ll see if I was successful.
I just love the squirrel fabric! Hubby said I couldn’t resist kitsch, LOL.
Hi, this is my new blog devoted to craftiness. I will hopefully be sharing my own attempts at craftiness, and tutorials and photos as applicable. I make a lot of different stuff, most of it centered around the home and my children. I love to work with my sewing machine, as well as doing handwork with wool felt. I’ve just started to learn to embroider.
First tutorial will be upcoming: Little Gnomes made with hand-stitched wool felt clothing.
