Suzy’s Sack

The Suzy Sack is a kick-in-the-pants to make. It was so much fun that I made five of them! My first attempt took me about an hour and I made a few mistakes, but from that point forward it was a piece of cake! The bag now takes me about half an hour error free, start to finish! Wahoo!

Santa’s New Suit!

How cute are these placemats and napkins by Jo-Lydia’s Attic??  They’re just so delightful and cheery and make me want to fill my belly with a bowl full of jelly.  ;]  And, they were super easy to make.  I chose from the Quilter’s Candy Prints because they’re not too busy yet still completely adorable!  I also chose the fake fur option on the placemats because I think the texture makes them pop ...

Just in time for the Superbowl!

When our super snuggly and soft flannel basics arrived, I knew I wanted to create something with them, but was a little hesitant on doing a larger project as I have never worked with flannel before. I wanted a simpler project that would give me the experience that I needed, but also a finished product.

While I'm not a huge football fan, I know plenty of people who are so this will make a great gift when the time comes. Or, I'll just hold on to it for the next time the Buffalo Bills make it to the Superbowl (ha!). I might be holding on to it for a while if that's the case...
