I kept busy on Saturday doing a few sewing projects while Scott did his taxes. I made some new dish towels to hang on the oven. We got a few for our wedding, but I wanted some that go with the vibe of the kitchen.
I love this paisley print, and the ruffled gold insert was fun to try. I think it adds a nice texture.
Next on the list was this cute "hootie hider," basically a nursing cover. Don't freak out, this is for a friend. But I liked this project because it was quick and simple, and I got to work with boning for the first time (it's inserted to the 14" section at the neckline). I plan on making more of these in the future, so I'm glad I learned a few tricks about this project on my first time through.
Oh, it's reversible!
And the last craft is an earring holder! A very much-needed earring holder. They have been a mess forever, I could never find the pair I wanted when I needed it! But I didn't want the 5 year old kind from Claires.... so, I bought this frame at Wal-mart for $3. The netting in the back is a window screen from Home Depot I picked up for $1.25. And now I have a nice piece of glass! Hmm...
My life is definitely in better balance when there are crafts involved! Any ideas for new projects? What have been some of your favorites?
