Happy Holidays LOL!!

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I know it's a little late but better late than never.  I've been playing catch up ever since we came back from GA for Thanksgiving. I've been painting, sanding, scraping, scrapping, stamping, smashing and sewing a lot, say that 5 times fast lol!

Here are a  few of the projects...

....I made 18 or so of these bags for a friend.  This bag is made out of SU Spice Cake fabric.  I also made some from the Flirtatious and Candy Cane Christmas fabrics.  I think these are so cute!! I plan to make a couple more for my girls, they kept asking if they could have one.  I will say they were time consuming to make, lots of stop and start and trimming of thread.  I found a great youtube video that walked you through it, very beginner friendly.  Note: I didn't need to pin all the pieces together if you glue the felt in place you can hold the rest just fine.    

Girls Christmas Presents...
...I picked up this desk at goodwill for $8.00.  I LOVE deals like this!!!!
I also picked up another desk this time from craigslist for $15.
 I started by sanding them and getting off any rust, then I gave them a good cleaning and let them dry.  I used a rust resistant spray paint primer.  After a couple of coats of that I sprayed them with a nice white top coat paint.  
 I used some left over pink and green paint for the seats and stenciled their names on.

 They were a big hit on Christmas morning!!

I also made my son a Christmas present.  He is really into Harry Potter and we just started reading the books together.  I'm hopeful that they will spark a love for reading.

So I decided to make a Harry Potter robe for him complete with wand and glasses.  Here are the directions that I used.

He was completely surprised and loves it. I wasn't sure how it was going to fit him so I just pinned the patch on. It fits just fine so all I have to do is sew it on permanently. Christmas morning is always so much fun but this year it was a little extra special because I made some of their gifts.

Thanks for still Stoppin' by!!
