As promised, this week I am going to show you some of the projects that we had on display in our booth at the quilt show. Better late than never, right? These are things that friends helped me get together while my arm was broken and I didn’t get a chance to blog about. Well, my arm is feeling much better and I can type with both hands now. Physical Therapy made it feel so much better. So, back to blogging. I have no excuses anymore!

My mom made up sets of handmade crochet flowers for us to sell. A set of 3 in approximate sizes 2.5″, 2″ & 1″. She made 8 different sets. The variegated purple is my fave!

She also made individual ones for us to use in kits. This is the sweetest Little Wallet kit. It only requires 2 fat quarters. And who wouldn’t want to be original and have a cute crochet flower instead of a button! These wallets whipped up really fast. I didn’t want to stop making them. Great stocking stuffer, don’t ya think?

And then we kitted the slippers with flowers also.

Lots of ideas for these cute flowers…hair clips and headbands for girls, scrapbooking, quilts. We even attached a tiny one to the cute appliqued owl for the Hootie & Friends quilt kit.

Each kit comes tied with a crochet flower…so cute!

Thanks Mom!

This quilt!

We used the Riley Blake, Hoo’s In The Forest, fabric to make this super easy baby quilt. A charm pack, a few yards of fabric, throw in some appliqued cuteness, & a couple hours of sewing and you’ve got an adorable keepsake!

I appliqued strawberries in one corner and a sweet little owl in the other.

Paige designed SewMod labels for all our handmade items. The are just printed on this fabric paper we found at the craft store.

I used pinking shears to trim the edges and sewed it right into the binding.

This is a really inexpensive and easy quilt. The kit is available for $29 and that includes the backing and binding. It’s available in 3 colorways, yellow, blue, and pink. This quilt is going to be part of our booth at the show but also will be available in our new store coming soon on Etsy …

This shop will be dedicated to handmade baby items, fabric and patterns. We’re pretty excited about launching this as part of SewMod! We have sooo many things going on, my head is spinning!!

Good Morning everyone:)

Hoo’s In The Forest? Cute little deer, wide-eyed owls, hedgehogs, all kinds of forest critters!

And what do they like to eat? ….apples, cherries and strawberries!

The full order, all 23 bolts in this collection, arrived yesterday. It has 4 main colors to it…blues , greens, yellows and pinks, along with some plaids, daisies , and solids.

Cute & whimsy!

We also had some charm squares from Hoo and Christmas Candy come with it.

I hope everyone enjoys their Friday. I’m going to spend mine working on adding these to the Etsy shop and later having dinner with Paige.

Happy sewing!

My Flickr Tea Buddies theme/project this month, or should I say last month because it’s June, was Owls. Marja and Marjon were our hostesses. Everyone picked an owl project. Some were pillows, Diane made a pincushion, Liz had the cutest owl mug rug, and Marja made a needle case with an owl on it.

Throughout the month our hostesses showed us pics of live owls from the zoo. Marjon is a volunteer for the Dutch Little Owl Foundation so we saw all kinds of interesting owls. Marja even showed a cute pic of her grandson with an owl resting on his arm.

My project for May were these cute stuffed owls from a free tutorial on Karen Gray’s Blog. So easy, about 20 minutes to make, and sooo cute! Paige and I thought it would be fun to take pics of them in a tree outside of the coffee shop we met up at last night. Yes, I’m sure we had plenty of weird looks, but it wasn’t the first or will it be the last:)

Adorable!!

Thanks for a great month ladies. I enjoyed all your pics!

This month is Butterflies and I haven’t decided what I’m going to come up with yet. Better get to thinking though. I don’t wanna be late again:(
