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.

Belated Birthday Cake & Christmas Ornaments

Tyler baked a cake last night. It is butter pecan with chocolate icing. Yummy. He has said that he wants to be a chef. He is a teenager and will probably change his mind a million times by the time college roles around. The cake mix was left over from my birthday. Tim was supposed to bake it but couldn’t because the roast was in the oven. The picture is a little blurry. He was being goofy. So this is the only good one I got.

I made these two Christmas ornaments today for a swap partner. I hope she likes them. They had to be handmade. I hand stitched the beads on and hand stitched them close.

The Christmas tree is a dark green felt with glitter on it. It is hard to tell from the picture.
