Monday making - this and that

This week I made these SUPER cute potholders.
I used some leftovers....of course!

These were leftover strips from a honeybun package.
Little tiny strips only 1 1/2” wide!

I didn’t have many...
I didn’t NEED many.

I also ended up doing a little sewing at my daughter’s house.
We were visiting her family in Texas 
and I found I had more time on my hands than expected.

With ONLY a sewing machine and NO supplies....
What was I to DO???
Shop at the thrift store!

I found some fabric (shirts and pillowcases)
And got to work!!

Don't cringe TOO MUCH when you see the scissors I'm using.

Video is HERE.

monday making - doll quilt...OR?

I made a small quilt this week on my youtube channel.

First I showed how to make the block.

I then added a binding that for ME was unusual.

Will the dollies get to use it???

Will it become something totally different?
This project was based on this quilt I found last week
At a thrift store.
I LOVE old quilts.....don’t you?

what are YOU making this week??

monday making with the grandkids

The HIGHLIGHT of my week was sewing with 
TWO of the Grandkids!

Pillowcases AND.....

Drawstring bags!

My grandson LOVED pushing the pedal as I guided the fabric.
He also did a little BACKstitch and of course....
the thread cutter!

I had a bunch of bags to sew for a friend who
Leads a massive effort to fill Christmas boxes for
Operation Christmas Child.

I added both projects to my youtube channel.

Thank you for linking up each week and
encouraging others in their creative sewing adventures!

What are YOU making??
