I made this as a birthday gift for one of Saya’s friends. I was planning to post more details about how I made it, but the photos didn’t turn out.
Basically I just cut out five panels. One of the panels l I cut in half, then sewed it back together a few inches. (That’s the front panel.)
I sewed four of the seams together. At that point I hemmed the top and bottom.
Finally, I sewed the fifth seam to close it up. Easy peasy.
I wanted to do more decorations, but I ran out of time. The little deer is something I made a while back.
I love stitching by hand. It takes a lot of time and I always wish I had more time. I am finishing a quilt I started a long time ago, and I am making bracelets for a new shop that is opening. I also have bracelets in my etsy shop. You can use the coupon code newhouse15 for 15% off.
I made a lot of these spoons to give to family for Christmas. I found the idea on design mom. I thought it was great because it is something useful and I like the way they turned out. The wood burning tool was inexpensive and fun to use. I also made some hand-stitched linen napkins to go with them.
I made this little mouse house for Saya. The small case is from Target–it was plain and I decorated it. (I didn’t make the mouse. I splurged on a Maileg mouse. I love their toys so much.) I made a little quilt, pillow and blanket. Finally I bought another small paper box for $1 and painted the top to look like a table. Inside the box can store little foods and accessories for the mouse.
I made some porcelain cups and bowls recently.
First and last day of kindergarten. Not the best quality pics, but precious all the same <3
I am just a little bit obsessed with craft supplies. I found these at Target the other day…
Neon sharpie markers and Kraft stickers. The stickers were in the $1 bins.
I had to play with the markers right away, so I made this note for Saya. Today is her last day of kindergarten. Tomorrow there is a family picnic at school, and then we’re done! I am going to take her to Dave and Busters after school today for her surprise. She will be thrilled. She loves surprises.
