We’ve had such a busy summer I haven’t had too much time to sew, but I did manage to finish two items.

One of these is the easiest project  that I have ever made.  I definitely  will be making more for my craft shows.

All I needed was a dish towel and small pot holder, but you can use a regular sized potholder.ez-project.jpg

I gathered the middle of the towel and then stitched it to the center of the pot holder on the underside.  ez dishtowel

You then need to sew a button on the opposite side of the loop to be able to fasten it closed when hung on the oven  door handle.  Sew simple.

I also had time to make another apron. It’s bright pink and very cheerful.  I’m hoping the owner will feel like cooking gourmet meals when she wears it.

I have many lanterns left over from our youngest daughter’s wedding, so I decided to make a Christmas scene with it. This project is super easy and great as a gift for someone with children.


All you need is the lantern of your choice, glue gun, felt, scissors, miniature garden figures and tiny lights to wrap around the xmas tree. I also bought some teeny tiny pom poms for the tree decorations and then your are ready to start designing your scene.

I also made a big bow to top it off.

It looks magical at night when you turn the lights on.


I put a little red pom pom on the reindeer’s nose.♥♥♥♥
