The big gulp cozy
How about this neat Manicure kit cover as a Holiday gift for a teacher or friend?
You can give it empty, or get some manicure items and fill it like I did. Quick, easy and fabulous!
Love the Alexander Henry Apples + Pears fabric.
I love Betz's cashmere bunny!
but I needed to changed up the pattern a bit, I added a tail (using the top half of the ear pattern I made a tail pattern. )I sewed everything so it could be given to a new- born, and not worry about things falling off. The bunny is made of soft Minke, the heart is suede, and the eyes and mouth are embroidery floss. I filled it with soft filling.
I got this pattern/Tutorial from http://blog.betzwhite.com/2007/03/cashmere-bunny-tutorial.html
Thank You Betz!
Here is one of my baby toys
Well, I re-purposed that bag that is in the cereal box to make my own. I opened it up and wiped it clean and then cut a square 4x4 (same as the fabric squares).Then I cut 9 pieces of coordinating ribbon, folded each in half and pined to the right side of one piece of fabric, and sewed all around to secure. Then, I layered the 2 fabric squares' right sides together (ribbon facing in), pined the bag square to the top, and sewed the four sides--leaving a small hole to turn the project. Next I pressed the fabric, added a very small amount of batting, stitched up the opening and top stitched 2 rows. As a final touch, I added a teething ring.
