For the Young Flesh Eaters!

Be glad that they don't have teeth!
I made it for a friend's nursery. She crazy and fun like that.

New addition to my craft corner

Meet my newest addition to my craft corner (I have to share a room with the hubby). :)

This little guy makes me happy.

My sewing machine cover needed an update. So I simply added this fun felt guy.

Now it makes me want to clean up the rest of my corner. Oh boy that's a chore! :)

5 minute project!

I whipped up a really simple and easy envelop pillowcase.

I've had this fabric for the sole purpose of making it into pillowcases for my couch.

I made the pillow a loooong time ago, and just found it this morning, and got super excited because I could make my pillowcase.

These are my new favorite case to make. SOOO easy!

Next I want to make a rolled pillow, where it's tied off at the ends.

Last week I made a pillowcase to give to my friend for her wedding.
When I drew up the sampler design, I realize that I LOVE making my own designs, they are a lot of fun.

I learned a lot from this project. My embroidery was WAY too small. But I learn from my mistakes. :) The next that I make (for my sister-in-law) it will be bolder and the names will be bigger.

A side note:
I had this pillow for a week that it was killing me not to post it. I didn't want my friend to stumble upon it before hand.

A quick wedding gift

I whipped up a last minute wedding sampler for my cousin's wedding gift. I didn't know if I was going to be able to make it to the wedding.

The only thing that I didn't like (and didn't have the time to fix) is the date. It's April 30th 2011. Different color next time.
But I do learn from my mistakes.

I really want to take better photos too, I just can't do it. My hubby is pretty good, but not me. :(

I have been busy

I have a Twitter now.

I've been posting WIPs and random craftiness. I have been a little too busy to make full blown posts on some of my stuff, and well most of them are gifts so I can't post just yet. I have to wait until this weekend before I can.
