Crafty To-Do List Check-Up

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:

Luckily, my mother-in-law was in town over Thanksgiving and helped me out with this one.

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!
