Sewing a lot, again

I have been working on some things for our home, like simple pillows but with beautiful fabric, I think pillows make a home cozy, even if you don't have couches.

Last Saturday we had visitors for breakfast, and so I took this chance to make place mats and napkins that I have been planning for a few weeks.

I end up making a bread basket with the same fabric, I tried to imitate a tree trunk, I love to make thing that remind of forest, trees and nature.

Also I'm still working on the puppets for the birthday of a little boy, they are giving one puppet to each kid, I'm hand sewing the eyes, and that's delaying me.

The night I made the napkins I also cut some pillows I have to make for an order, and I end up with a few stripes of fabric of the same width, and I decided to try my hand at a log cabin patch, not really knowing very well how to, but it came up nice in the end, I think, I added son corners to make it more pretty, I always get very worry about how to combine colors right on a quilt, and that even stops me from doing it.

I haven't made the pillow for this one yet, I made all my pillows because I like to use cotton fabric and I think all pillows that sale on stores are expensive.

I'm joining Nicole, on KCCO today, what are you creating these days?


Macaw wings for a girl's birthdays

I made two pairs of wings for some girls, sisters that requested them for birthday, one is one year older than the other, but you could no tell the difference, and they are very sweet friends of my son, and so I wanted to pleased them very much. I designed two different wings based on macaw pictures.

I also made some bags as gift wrapping because I just can't use paper for that, at least I know that if I make a fabric bag it probably will be used and definitively wouldn't end on the trash at the end of the party.

So this is the, the girls liked them very much, and that's the most important thing.
