SEWING SOME WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS GIFTS!
Hi and welcome , nice of you to stop in . I know only too well that this is one of the busiest weeks of the year , especially if you are hosting Thanksgiving Dinner and that would be me. So before I start some serious cooking I thought I would share this pretty apron I made for my favorite Aunt in Ct.
You remember how I shared with you all the material I recently purchased well I am putting it to good use.
I simply used an old white butchers apron as a pattern leaving about 3 extra inches for sewing. If in fact you don't own a sewing machine this can be sewn by hand or even using a material glue would also work.
My daughter in law was kind enough to model this.....the other day when I wanted to get this post out my son was the only one around so I asked him if he would model it for me and his reply was absolutely not! He left rather quickly and I could not help to laugh at him . I guess it must have been the ruffled bottom lol! Here you see I put my aunts initial to personalize it.
I also sewed a pocket on it and I plan to fill it with some pot holders and such. I hand sewn the heart on.
She looks like shes ready to fix dinner!
A simple wonderful useful gift for any lady that cooks and I have some I will be doing for some men but I will leave out the ruffles. I used less that two yards so this can be made very inexpensively . I used matching flannel for the ties which I frayed a bit. Hope you will try your hand at a homemade gift for they are the best!
Happy crafting, Lisa

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
