I am counting down until we leave on Saturday to see Cayla's family in Milwaukee. Two more days and then we are OFF. We will pack up the presents and the pugs and head to Wisconsin for lots of food and laughter and eating and drinking and eating and then eating some more. It's vacation, after all. :) I will also be sure to stop at my favorite thrifts while I am there! I always find great bargains in WI.
I wanted to finally show you what I have been working on! A while back I saw felt heart garland on etsy for about $40. I thought it was really cute so I decided to make it myself for the wedding.
Once I got the hang of the blanket stitch (which I learned how to do by watching a YouTube video), I couldn't stop myself and decided to make ornaments for friends and family. I used cookie cutters to make the shapes and they worked fabulously.
I used scrap fabric, vintage fabric and buttons, etc., to put these little cuties together. I used plain old felt for the backside. And, I am proud of myself, because I am really not all that crafty!
I really have been spending most of my evenings watching old episodes of Will and Grace or holiday movies in my jammies surrounded by bags and bags of scraps and buttons and felt. I have to admit, it's a really nice winter craft. If I can do it, ANYONE can. I can't wait to give them to everyone this weekend!
I hope you are staying warm, dears!
Lots of love,
