crafty bits

August 30, 2008


These were some of the Christmas gifts I made last year. The patterns were gathered from a month-long feature of quick and clever craft tutorials on the fabulous Sew, Mama, Sew! blog.

In the top picture are a tote bag, journal cover, lavender-and-rice heat pillow, zippered pouch, and placemats. They were so much fun to make, and working with fabrics I love made the process a pleasure, even through multiple gift sets under a wee bit of time pressure.
The pins are made with shrinky-dink plastic. I love this stuff, and can’t even begin to think of all the things one could do with it. I mean, who would have thought of decorative heads for pins? Not me, that’s for sure.

    Lovely gift-y things, and your garden looks glorious. Hope mine can rival it next summer.

    Oh I love everything. Green and white has to be my all time favorite color combination. Such beautiful things now I’ll have to head over to SMS to see if I can find those tutorials.
