First... some of the projects I did this winter (Christmas presents mostly)...
My friend Kim taught me how to follow this pattern and sew this purse! This one was for Bailey. I made one for myself too (ultimately I'm not happy with how long the strap was though, but I made another one too, it's gray with black dots and ruffly)!
There is also a brown and gold blanket there that was for Landon. The brown is what the kids called a "squirrel fur". Just a very soft material, but a nightmare to sew with. There was brown fuzz EVERYWHERE. Even sticking to the walls! I made two other similar blankets as well, with minky fabric instead of the squirrel fur, but didn't take pictures of those. They are nice, warm blankets though!
So, those are a few things I've made. I haven't made anything in a long time now though, I'm sure I'll get the itch again soon and start back up!
And, on to the links! Here are a few things I want to do when I do get that itch. (some of them are just dreams, but cute ones!)
How About Orange is one of my favorite blogs to follow. I've been following for a long time. So much cute (orange) and modern stuff!
These flowers are fun...
These fabric wall decals:
These ornaments are fun... I know, wrong season, but I'm just catching up on a lot of my blog feeds:
I just (literally JUST) discovered this blog: kojodesigns
and look at these pillows: I haven't had much time to surf around the whole site, but you can bet I'll be back!
And, there's the Tater Tots and Jello site that is always good for some fun ideas:
Here's a wooden name sign (love the book one underneath as well) (actually made by the kojodesigns friends):
So much fun stuff, now to only find the time and the ambition! Let me know if you find something you like or even better link me up if you try any of these!
