As promised pictures of what Mom and I worked on yesterday while watching the game. The mittens were made from batting, vintage trims, and glitter. If you visit "The Feathered Nest", Dawn gives a great free tutorial for these mittens. I have her site on my side bar so take a look. Her tutorials are very thorough and easy to understand. She also has tutorials that you can buy and she sends them to your email. The half apron was a pattern that I picked up in Austin this summer and it was really easy and fun to make. The neat thing is it's reversible and it has these great pockets across the bottom. This would be a great apron to use while working. The snowman apron was a pre-made apron that I picked up at Sam's Wholesale. I added some trim and a snowman. I plan to put a couple of wooden spoons in the pocket and a matching snowman dishtowel. This would make a really cute gift for someone who likes to cook. The fruit pincushion is a very cute pattern by Heather Bailey that my mom ordered. We made pears and tomatoes yesterday and then I put them in a jar! These are so cute. You can use them as pin cushions or just little accent pieces to sit around. I plan to fill a really large jar with them. There is also a strawberry and apple pattern included in her packet. She has kits that you can order or you can do like me and use your own fabric and trims. Her website is also on my side bar and if you are interested in her fabric and patterns you can find her online store on her site. The day could not have been better....we sewed, ate shrimp gumbo, drank coffee, and UT won the game against OU. Today I am cleaning my sewing room(so you know what that means)....I won't be able to find a thing! I am rearranging my machines and changing things up a little. I wish my room was a little larger but it's going to have to do. The weather is beautiful outside and plan to enjoy another day of sewing and crafting. Have a Blessed Day my friends!
