Last fall, I posted a
little long “Crafty To-Do List” on my blog in hopes that it would keep me held accountable for trying out some new crafts. I bet you’ve been wondering how I’ve been keeping up, right?!
Well……….I’ve been a little lax, to say the least. The first item on the list was this Flower Pin from My Mama Made It":
While I haven’t made that exact version, I have tried my hand at a couple other styles to coordinate with some of the embroidered tees I made:
Another item on the list was to learn how to make a Pillowcase Dress like this one from Nap Time Crafts.
And finally, the only other item I got close to completing from my list was a version of this Fabric Key Chain from U Create/The Idea Room:
I don’t have any photos because I gave it to my mother-in-law, but I used the cotton webbing topped with an embroidered ribbon, so it turned out something like this:
I really need to make some more of those for gifts and my Etsy shop since I have all the supplies.
So that’s about as far as I’ve gotten! I do have a good excuse, though, I’ve been spending a lot of time playing around with my embroidery machine and making new things that weren’t on my list to begin with. But it’s good to remind myself of all the fun ideas that I still need to try!
Linking up today’s post to the following parties:
