Okay... deep breaths and happy thoughts! I do have things to post. Whew! I've just been too lazy to get them posted. I'm going to stop being lazy in 3... 2... 1... now!
I made several little bags a while ago that I thought turned out pretty cute. My mom thought they turned out cute, too, and asked me if I could make a bigger version of one for her to use as a purse. She picked out the fabric and I enlarged the pattern. Here's the finished product (sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures).
I think it turned out well! The owl fabric is super cute. I didn't get a picture of the inside, but it's green with a large white floral print.
My husband and I worked on this project together. We saw a wooden American flag in a catalog that we both liked, but the price was way too high. After looking at it for a few minutes, we realized we could make something similar for a much lower price.
Here's what we made:
It's landscape stakes and spray paint from Lowes. The stars were a stencil of sorts made by my husband's co-worker on her Cricut (Thank you!!!). I am pretty proud of this. It ended up being a Father's Day present for my step-dad.
Okay! No more being lazy! I have more posts in mind and will get them up after I feed my daughter ... she insists on several meals a day! :-)
