I found a childrens tea set that wasn't the cutest and not the best quality but I had high hopes for it! I brought it home a spray painted it hot pink. The sugar bowl didn't come with a lid so I made it into a pin cushion : )All of these pin toppers were a special order from Cristina in Portugal! She should be receiving shortly.

I got a yard of this unique fabric for a dollar! What a score ~ so the second I got home I made this draw string purse. I lined it in white and did some detail stitching around the edge. It would be a nice tote for a day out shopping when you don't want to take a lot of stuff with you.
I usually don't make too many things for myself especially these days but I wanted to make a nice carrying case for our travels up to the Bay Area for Christmas. It's the perfect size for a few embroidery projects and plushie makings.
I was so excited to find this fabric you can run through the printer to make your own "Sew-In" tags! It won't tear and if you run it under water and press it with a Hot iron it becomes colorfast so it won't run if you wash the item : )
I love to find junk and turn it into something useful and fun! I found this music box at Savers Thrift Store up in Phoenix for $4.99! It now sits on my vanity in my bathroom. My husbands a real good sport about the color pink!
Here I have made all of these Christmas Tree Ornaments from recycled cardstock, paper, glitter, popsicle sticks, feathers, ribbon stamps, ink and glue. Funkyluke received all of these for a FAA Lucky Parcels Swap. They were a joy to make for her : )
I swap with Swap-bot!
This was a really fun swap because the swap theme are some of my favorite colors especially in combination! I will post pix when my partner receives here parcel as to not spoil the surprise!
I made this for my partner Raesha for our tea pairings swap and it's lost in the mail ; (
I'm so sad.....
I'm so sad.....
Junk food without the guilt! Pin toppers are a fun easy craft that allows me to sit in the living room and hang out with my husband and pets, watch a movie or just keep busy while my family does their thing!
This blog is dedicated to all the things my hands can sew or embroider with fabric, floss and thread! And of course whatever I can make out of recycled materials or refurbish from Thrift Stores.
I made this stuffie/ornie for my Coloriffic Swap-O-Rama partner (can't reveal her name yet until she has received. She loves octopus' and the color scheme was Pinks, Red & White. I sent it off to her a few days ago so I hope she's more than happy with all of her goodies : )
