Follow this tutorial. (But use a zig sag stitch when machine sewing. Trust me on this.)
No, seriously, I made a few of these…BIG hit. And of course, why wouldn’t they be? They’re adorable, if I do say so myself, and a GREAT idea for birthday party gifts. I threw these together in under 2 hours a piece, and that was with major three-year-old distractions. Just grab up some knee socks when you see them and have them on hand.
What is your go-to birthday gift? I need ideas, because as cute as these are, I’m not sure I can give them for every birthday from here on out. Enlighten me!
I know, technically it’s nearly summer.
Tell that to the crazy weather around here.
At any rate, late or no, the spring cleaning is happening. Especially in my studio, where the fallout from quilt market is still evident. The most exciting part? I’m putting quite a few precuts in my shop that are pretty much impossible to find these days (Pure? Bliss? Yep, I’ve got them), at the prices they were before all this cotton price craziness. I’ve been holding on to them, but let’s face it. There’s just not enough room to keep it all.
Lucky you guys!
So check out the newcomers to the shop, and if you see something you must have, snatch it up. Several of these I only have a few of. I’ll be adding more throughout the day as I find them.
PS Sent off a mystery package last week, so nice to be done! I can’t wait to show you later this fall.
PPS Off to the swimming park with the goobers. Should be exhausting, in a good way.
I know a lot of people have a hard time with Mondays.
Turns out I really like them. I mean, of course it’s not fun to clean up from the fallout of the weekend. But I enjoy being able to have a fresh start, see how much better this week can be than the last one. I guess it’s like starting a new year, only on a smaller scale. A more manageable scale. So! Today, my plan is to take back some library books, return a swimsuit (or two!) that just don’t work (thanks Costco!), dream up some new projects in the hammock while the kiddos ride some bikes, and hopefully (crossing fingers) put a few plants in the ground. I know it’s crazy late, but the weather has been so ridiculous around here, I’m only now starting to trust that the snow might not come back for a few months. Send some good weather vibes my way, would ya? I’d really like some flowers in my flower beds, and a few veggies in my garden. (And NOT what happened last year.)
What are YOU doing on this lovely Monday?
