Can you guess what THAT is? I know, it's a terrible photo. The fabric is really light and I had an awful time trying to get it to show up in it's true colors...it's a really nice pink and brown and white stripe on a very pale pink background. Anyway, my friend Deanna came over Sunday and we spent the entire afternoon sewing and crafting!!! It was SEW much fun! Perhaps the next photo will give you a clue as to what this is...
Yep, it's a Lavender Eye Pillow!! Ahhh...it feels SO nice laying over my forehead/eyes when I've got a migraine or I'm just completely stressed out from the kiddos. It's filled with a mixture of flax seeds and lavender buds, mixed with some lavender essential oil. I wish you could smell through your computer how heavenly it is!!! Anyway, I made a few of these as gifts.
This is a fabric-covered chipboard notebook I made as a gift. Cute idea I got from here.
Another eye pillow...I love this fabric!!!
I made a set of 3 re-usable shopping bags using this pattern. These are great for several reasons. First and foremost - they help you stop using those awful plastic bags from the store. But as for the actual bags themselves...since the handles are cut into the bag, they are stronger than handles that are attached separately; plus, they are reinforced (so they are 4 layers thick). Also, the bags are totally reversible, which is great! They are generously sized, too. I made this set out of an old set of curtains - so EXTRA green points for me!!!
Of course, I can't sit around sewing ALL the time...as much as I'd like to...I still have these little munchkins keeping me busy. :)
