I told my group the other night that I would show some quick gifts at the next meeting so I decided to work on those. I pulled out a little kit I had put together and made this chair caddy. It went together pretty quickly, so I decided to make another one but I quilted it differently and I also finished the binding by machine instead of by hand. Here's two quick gifts.
I then made these two bed caddies...These were super quick to make.
I put my embroidery unit on my machine and made the embroidered towel on the left. I made the middle towel on another machine while my machine embroidered away. These are great for the kitchen. The butterfly towel is just that. I didn't do anything with that. I'll put some bath soap with that for a quick gift. I have a friend that loves butterflies, so this will go to her.
I made these quick bookmarks too. I love doing these. I give these with a book to my sewing friends. I have made these for years and they always get a smile or giggle out of the receiver...
I made these little kleenex carriers, quick coasters, and the two little bags next. I love the blue jean bag. I used left over or should I say recycled jeans to make it. I also added some cute stitches on it...I'll put some lip gloss and some little something in it and give it to my granddaughter. The other little bag is so quick to make, you can whip one up in about 10 minutes and it can be any size. Great for makeup or putting personal items in.
This last little bear took me the rest of the afternoon. He will be going to a nursing home for someone to love...One of the ladies at tatting was giving away some patterns and craft stuff and I got him for free...I have alot more to sew up to go to the nursing home.
This is what I got done today. I would have gotten more done but I had to stop and watch the Rangers play....Yeah, I'm so glad they won. Go Rangers!!!
I think it was a pretty productive day. I have gone through some of my stash and put together fabric with patterns to make little kits up and I'll be working on more of these this week. Next weekend I am not going to Houston. I am going on retreat and plan on getting alot done. I will be working on my quilts and other projects there.
I am almost finished with one sock...I told you about this earlier. I started the knitting group and pulled this sock out and tried to work on it at group...Well, I am now onto the foot part and it is going just fine except...it looks like it might be big...I'm going to finish it and see if it will shrink a little bit. I'll show you the sock tomorrow. I hope you had a great day and get lots of sewing done this weekend. til next time....
