Show and Tell- Week 1

My friend and I decided that we would start working on projects during the week and then have a "show and tell" on Friday. I don't know about you, but I always love to see what other people are working on, it's great for inspiration and you never know what will come from bouncing ideas off each other. My friend came up with this cute pillow cover with an X & 0 pattern just in time for Vday! I have been in a rut lately, but this challenge has really made more driven during the week even when I'm tired I'm pushing myself just a little bit harder to get a little more done each day.


sometimes thin mints help too ;)




Last week was our first week and I had a special child's bday coming up so I had to make them something fun! Of course I wanted to make a cute little plush creature, that's my go to gift for kids. I found some fabric that I had put to the side and just started sketching a pattern on the fabric, I knew I wanted to use felt legs like I had in the past.  I drew the face with fabric markers and sewed her up and completed the plush all in one night.  I also included a little notebook to record adventures with space to draw and lines to practice hand writing and story telling :)

Meet Ollie the Owl


What projects have you been working on lately? do you have any crafty friends to share progress and frustration with? Happy Weekend to you!

What a fun idea! I think I need to get my friends together and do that "show and tell" idea. The thin mints is so cute! I've been getting really into sewing lately, and I'm hoping to get good enough to proudly wear whatever clothes I make :)

Ollie the owl is very cute! I'm currently working on a garland of paper birds to drape over my fireplace. A colorful little reminder that Spring is on the way, even though it sure doesn't feel like it lately!
