We went to a bridal shower yesterday for Loren’s cousin who is getting married in a short 3 weeks. It was fantastic to see family that we rarely see. Of course I can’t just do something simple like get a gift card or find an item on a register list … I just love to sew, what can I say. And since I am lucky enough to be home and have the time it works out perfect. So here are my gifts … I gotta say, they turned out pretty well for a girl who is a self-taught lover of sewing.
It all started with the idea to make an apron.
Next I decided on some stitched flour sack towels.
Later that night I thought a bag would be fun to put it all in.
… that orange button isn’t really that obnoxious in color …
I saw this idea for a ruffled kitchen towel “somewhere” on-line and decided to try it out.
Then made a simple patchwork one which was super simple and cute. Using an already made kitchen towel was really fun, and fast.
After a little “packaging” …
it all went in the bag and we were good to go.
Oh, and I made some fun cookies to bring.
All in all it was a busy week in the stitching room (& kitchen) but it was so much fun that I am itching to get back in there aleady!
