I made the above felt egg at a recent "egg making party" my friend had for our kids. She had soft felt there for them to sew two eggs together and stuff them with fiberfill, or you could use the hard felt and make ornaments like mine. I was a bit slower at completing mine than the kids were, so I only finished one. As I'm sure you can figure out, the possibilities are endless for making a whole set of eggs like this to decorate a Spring Tree. Here's some links to things I've made in the past.
After seeing this post (You are "wheely" beautiful! by Mel) I knew I wanted to do something with the free bicycle image she used. I combined several images from her site to make my focal point, and then added different flower groupings around each one. I'm lovin' how they came out --- blue is one of my very favorite colors to do monochromatic cards in.
Snow Flowers embossing folder (Sizzix)
Just Because stamp (Studio G)
Martha Stewart branch punch
Sharpie marker (faux stitching)
Crayola Markers (colored stamps with before stamping flowers)
I made these super simple bird cards for a friend, in memory of her mother who passed away two years ago today. Just a little something to let her know I remember and care!
I love the extra "bling" the glitter gives them.....really makes the images "pop."
If you click on one of them you can see the details of them a bit better.
I made this purse for one of my husband's co-workers, but when I finished it he didn't think it was big enough for her. (Apparently she carries "everything but the kitchen sink" with her.) I like how the bag turned out -- using a fabric pack from Wal-mart already cut in 5" squares.
I used a coordinating material for the lining and made pockets all the way around the inside using more of the 5" squares.
You can see that I attached the snaps differently too.....I actually forgot to put them in, so I put them on yellow squares and sewed them in that way. I really like the "color pop" it adds to the inside of the purse.
Oh, and I used white bias tape on the top of the inside pocket and on the little pocket on the outside.
(Thanks Abby, for that big bag of bias tape you sent me -- it's coming in handy!)
I'm not terribly disappointing that it isn't big enough for our friend -- I'll just keep it an have it on hand for a last minute gift choice later on this year. (OR I may end up using it myself!)
