My step-daughter wore a super hip belt today. It’s a nautical-themed rope.
This year I made stocking for my two kids, Little Tiger (10 months) and step daughter B.B. (13 years). My pattern was based on this awesome one at Just Kat Stuff. Each stocking required one pair of jeans, a few yards of cotton for lining, and some fun fur to add some flair. I used fur from an old pair of boots because I’m 33 and too old for fun fur boots with pom-poms (but I still love pom-poms!!).
I added some fabric snowflakes from Dollarama.
The stockings were extra cute. Santa stuffed B.B.’s full of teen-friendly goodies. He didn’t bring Little Tiger any stocking stuffers though because he’s 10-months old and has no idea what’s going on half the time.
After looking at My patchwork, I’m inspired to learn more about the technique. Her creations are so funky and fun!
Today I patched this ancient chenille blanket with white and pink floral cotton.
For the best (and only?) patchwork-themed song, listen to the beautiful Dolly Parton”s Coat of many colours.
A much-need Chinook breeze blew in yesterday so I took Little Tiger for a walk. At my Sally Ann stop I stumbled upon some lovely fabrics: a floral embroidered cotton and a hot pink cotton polyester blend.
I started by making a few more cutlery rolls. I want to have a bunch by Christmas so I can hand them out like candy canes (actually, I just thought of putting candy canes in them when I give them as gifts. Minty goodness.)
I’m searching for another project for this fabric. It’s so girlie.
Happy (snowy) trails!
