So I had a chance to spend time "crafting" and sewing and just being creative. Here is a photo tour of the new items:
Baby card, this one sold faster than I could make it.
An original design by Michelle
Another of my flower designs
I made these out of the bottom of old jeans (reduce, reuse, recycle) The white strip went to a friends daughter for her birthday, with her name embroidered on the inside back; the green one went to my mom. They make great book bags for Bibles or reading clubs.
A sweet young lady named Anna turned 13 recently. We've known her since we moved here 7 years ago. I made this for her to carry her ipod in, in her purse. I see many teenagers with their ipods all tangled and mangled in their purses. Everything that could have gone wrong on this project- did!
That's it for now. I'm working on some burp cloths, onesies and 2 baby quilts. Which is where the challenge comes in, one friend is not finding out the baby's gender so I'm tossing around what I'll do. I wanted to make a quilt and am leaning toward a nursery rhyme theme- I figure this will be safe, plus it'll be my first color (not redwork) quilt!!
