Does anyone still read books? I mean a book book – as in like printed pages? I do. So in that case, I need bookmarks. These were made from pieces of wool with embroidery added. These are just too darn cute! I also have friends who read book books and have given away several bookmarks. These make great projects to take along on car trips and don’t require a lot of fabrics. So fun to make and share!
This is something I made for my mother-in-law, Luann. These bags, a set of four, hang from a dowel rod that we attached to the front of her bathroom sink. If she is sitting in her rolling walker or in the wheelchair, she is able to use them to store her cosmetics in. They are at just at the right height. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of them hanging with the cosmetics in them, but I do have these pictures.
The inside fabric is a jungle print (she loves giraffes) and the outside is blue jean material. The different sizes were also nice. I found the pattern online somewhere, so if you wanted to make some it should be pretty easy to find.
You are never too old to want and have a teddy bear.
This is a teddy bear I made for my niece, Ashley, from a quilt I made her many years ago. The quilt was loved and used until it was nearly used up. I was able to cut out a few of the undamaged sections to make her this lovable bear.
This particular pattern has only two pattern pieces, two for the front and two for the back. It’s pretty quick to sew up and lightly stuff. This pattern makes a kind of floppy bear, it’s not tightly stuffed like some stuffed animals, so it makes this one particularly huggable. I did not add the eyes and nose to this one and just let the used quilt be all it needs. I gave this to Ashley on Christmas and she just fell in love with it. Note – I love it, too!
