Well I’ve made three items already, and yes I know that’s not really going to get me into a craft show. But it’s a start!.
Soon we’ll be able to sit outside and drink a strawberry soda. This is a fake one, but I’ve always wanted to make one like this.
The very first time I saw this, many years ago, it was made with carnation flowers for the top, now people are making it with taffy candy. This idea is on Pinterest and so very easy to make.
Owls are also a favorite of mine to make. I made my own pattern pieces and is so easy and fun to sew.
Easy is what I do because I just don’t like hard or complicated.
My whimsical cat is from my own pattern, it might need a little tweaking, but I’m just not sure yet what to tweak. I’m open for suggestions.
I have to get back to my sewing. Have a fun Valentine’s Day.❤️💜❤️💜
I think I’ll give it another try. I’ve always wanted to do the craft shows, which I did try about 2 years ago. I just wasn’t prepared the way I should have been.
My lack of inventory was a problem, which I still don’t have, but I plan on doing some sewing , except, life always gets in the way. So I need to organize my time and get myself to sit down at my sewing machine.
I need to start creating again, using my imagination and getting motivated. The need to do research on what the new trends are and what’s selling at the craft shows is an important step to success .
Okay, I think I know what needs to be done. Tomorrow is a good day to start. Right now I need to go read my book.
I have a dear friend whose mother is in her nineties and still going strong. Her family keeps her busy with different activities.
This particular activity is fun for young and old alike and is something I’ve always wanted to do.
Gathering all the supplies that were needed they let their imagination do the work and created some lovely bonnets.
And it looks like the little ones had lots of fun designing their very own.
The one thing to remember is to enjoy the process and not stress about competing with all the others, unless you choose to make it a contest.
And here is the whole clan showing off their bonnets.♥♥♥♥
This activity would be great for Mother’s Day as well.
It’s always fun to decorate for Easter, but I do it especially for my grandkids.
My oldest daughter also decorates her mantel for just about every season, and I always look forward to seeing what she does.
And it’s always a Mexican tradition for cascarones, which are egg shells filled with confetti that you break over your relatives heads, gently. Although the kids always get carried away and we have to try and avoid them in order not to get a concussion. One year I made an Easter tree out of a tree branch.
More ideas to come. Thanks for visiting.♥♥♥♥
Or is it a kitchen towel?
Yep, it is a kitchen towel that is so cute and would make a great gift for moms. It would also be a great item for craft shows.
I used the Simplicity pattern #8109. It’s very easy and I managed to make it easier for myself by using just one kitchen towel as the skirt front. The pattern asks for a front and back skirt.
The Pioneer Woman has coordinating kitchen towels that sell as a pack of two, and the colors are very pretty, so this is what I used for my little dress towel. Just use your imagination and pair up any two that you prefer.
You’ll need some ribbon for ties to sew on each side of the towel, which I haven’t done yet.
This is fun sewing, because it’s like designing your own little dress.
It’s almost time for the most romantic day of the year.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so I made myself a little floral gift.
This is very simple and easy to make.
You will just need a few items along with a glue gun and ribbon.
You might even have a Mason jar in your kitchen just waiting for a make over.
I put some of the wire garland inside the container to add more color and to hide the stems.
Cutting the flower stems is a good idea, then you can arrange them into a little nosegay to fit in the jar. And don’t forget to make a bow for the front of the jar.
It looks great on my shelf in the bedroom.
We have a family tradition of carving pumpkins just a few days before Halloween. We don’t know how much longer we will be doing this because the grandkids are all growing up so fast. We treasure these gatherings as we do all our family time spent together.
Even our daughter and son-in-law wanted to show off their Jack-O-Lanterns.
Have fun and be safe tonight.♥♥♥♥
