Christmas Wreath Class


BSBWreathgradientIMG_3711I led a Christmas wreath class for the ladies group at my church. We followed this Dollar Store Ornament Wreath pattern from AJ’s Craft Room on youtube.

Here is my wreath. I may update some of the other wreaths later

Quilted Christmas Stockings



IMG_3705 IMG_3708

I made these for my church kids! I used this¬†online tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt¬†and drafted my own stocking shape from an old calendar. The materials i used were snuggle flannel from Joanns (the one that is priced insanely low about once a year around Thanksgiving). For batting I pieced together all the scrappy strips I had saved after trimming down a quilt sandwich. (I overlapped the batting and used a wide zigzag to piece them together for this craft project). For liner I used fabric that I had. And for the loop, instead of sewing a tube and flipping it inside out I made bias tape using 3″ strips and edge sewed the side closed which was far more time efficient. I’m very happy with the results.image image image

Pixel Kitty

imageMade this for Josie using the IKEA bead craft. its very nostalgic! You buy a set of pegged templates and buy a separate cannister of multicolored beads. you set beads on the pegs and melt it together using wax paper and an iron. After doing a few nondescript rainbow things i decided to make a picture. i eyeballed an image of a kitten and went for it. It is the first creative thing I’ve done in months since we moved.
