A Few of My Favorite Things

Fall Flower Detail

Linen…Wool Felt…Katie Jump Rope. In a spurt of sewing today, they all came together and became this small fall pillow. This was so fun to make and I have a *lot* of wool felt. I definitely see more in my future, maybe for the shop? The only snag in that plan is that I love this linen, but it is a piece that Fabric.com accidentally sent me last year and I have no idea what it is! If only I could go to their warehouse and do some comparing in person. :)

Hello Kitty Bunny

Bunny

My daughter loves Hello Kitty for some reason. It’s odd, because I’m not even sure how she knows about Hello Kitty. It must be in her DNA. I found this really cute Hello Kitty fabric on Etsy and ordered some to make her a plush doll for Christmas. Let’s just say…the quality of the finished product will be good for a 3 year old. :)

I have the book Plush-O-Rama and copied a plush from the author bios at the end. I think it’s a bunny. But I’m not sure. LOL

Is anyone else finding it hard to get any sewing time in during the holidays? I have a finished quilt in my sewing room, just waiting for the binding to be hand-stitched. But by the end of the day, I’m just exhausted. I have another quilt that I was hoping to finish by the end of the year as well. I suppose some things will just have to wait. I have a few pillows to sew for gifts and need to embroider my son’s name on his stocking. So much to do, so little time.
