250th Post

Woo Hoo 250th post. I am going to give away 2 fat quarters and a mini cupcake ornament on November 28th. One fat quarter will be a surprise and the other is going to be this poinsettia print. I got a lot of comments about this one so I thought I would give it away again. Leave me a comment if you want to be in the drawing. One lucky person will get all three items.

The mini ornament will be a different print than this one.

Good Luck.

Call Me Crafty Holly….

I have been wanting to make a pincushion out of the baby food jars for some time. I just haven’t had a few minutes to do it. Andrew, God, love him, doesn’t want to be one inch away from me. 🙂 I know, I should enjoy it now. He is growing up so quick.

He has taken quite a nap today, so I took advantage of it. I made a pincushion storage container , a cup cake ornament, and a mini cup cake ornament.

It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Thankfully. I am thinking about putting instructions on my site for them. I decided to make a sleeve for mine. I have seen them with out one so that you can see through them. The cap comes off and will be perfect for storing bobbins and such.

The second picture is a little blurry. I used a plastic lid from my quilt basting spray for the bottom. I then used a plate to make my circle for the top. I sewed it like making a yo-yo. Stuffed it, then hot glued it on the top. I want to make more of these. However I am going to have to find something else for the bottom. Can’t be taking the plastic lids off everything. LOL.

I used a lid from an empty 2 liter diet coke bottle for this one. Isn’t it adorable.

Here is all of them together. It gives you a better idea of how big they are.
