Last night I was wondering if I should make a new piece of my blog and call it Friday Finishes. It would be a kind of show and tell of sewing. Instead I found AmyLouWho cleverly created Sew & Tell Fridays and this week asked for any gifts that were made over the holidays. Oh and I am 6 days late,*ahem*, but so what. Right? This is too much fun. So I am going to jump in and share.
This Christmas I made a polka dot crayon roll for my niece and since they seemed easy to make I made two more for Anna and Andrew. As you can see someone admired the first one.
I used markers since I was worried the crayons might write on the fabric as they took them out and put them away. They were stocking stuffers.
This tutorial here at Skip to my Lou spelled out what exactly to do. I love how she used the rick rack. I am pin challenged already so I used my rick rack in the ties! I fussy cut and fussy folded to make the hedgies and mushrooms show up.
I think I have a very lucky three and five year old.
So visit Sew & Tell Fridays and see all the homemade goodies made.
