Huge Tote

I made this gigantic tote for my mother-in-law for her birthday. She, of all people, really appreciates and uses totes.  I knew a big one, shown here holding two standard bed pillows, would be just right for her.
I loved the fabric when I saw it at a thrift store: a bright, sturdy, fabulous plaid in [...]

It was a lot of fun making Ruby this doll for Christmas. I had been wanting to make her one, so, feeling like I may just be able to squeeze it in before Christmas, I started on the evening of the 23rd and was able to finish her late that night.

Rooster Tote

I came across some linen hand towels I had collected. I had forgotten about them and was inspired by this Rooster one, such a great design. I decided it would make a nice tote bag for Owen, since he is quite fond of chickens, and, well, a rooster is close enough.

Now I’m forgetting who, of course, [...]

I am so excited! Now that the gift-giving is done, I can finally post my holiday projects! I’m starting with some fun felt food for some youngsters in my life.
A basket of strawberries for Ruby. After watching me make some for two of her friends she asked, “Momma, can you make some strawberries for me?” [...]

Pink Pockets

Every now and then, there comes along a fabric so adorable, I can hardly stand it. My Mom found me less than 1/5 of a yard of this pink geometric print in a second-hand scrap bag. I made these pockets to feature it and I hope my friend doesn’t mind I gave her one as [...]

This is a felt salad I made for a dear little girl who turned 4 last week, complete with cucumbers, mushrooms, carrots and tomatoes. I included a salad bowl, salad spoons, and this adorable mini salad spinner I had found at a yard sale when Owen was little.
