Time for a little show-and-tell!
Here are the items I completed last week for Market.
1 -- Cell Phone Holder
4 -- Business/Gift Card Holders
6 -- Coffee Sleeves/Cozies
4 -- Draft Dodgers/Snakes
Gee, what colors was I in the mood to play with?
Actually, I was just trying to use up more scraps.
All of these items are completely scrappy.
Buttons, batting, fabric, everything.
This cell phone holder can be looped
onto your purse strap.
It's lined and quilted so it keeps your phone
protected while it keeps it super handy!
I got the idea from Fairy Face Designs but
I'll be posting my version on it tomorrow.
I think these business/gift card holders
turned out really well.
What I love is how they make the cutest way
to give a gift card but then it also becomes
a business card (or other important cards) holder.
Another gift after the gift has been spent!
I got the idea for these from The Crafty Cupboard.
They whip up super-fast and they're so small that
you're sure to find all you need in your scrap basket!
I think I could make about 50 more--they're so fun!
Next up are the coffee sleeves.
These are just one fabric each but if I make any more,
I think I'll do some scrappy patchwork.
I just made a variety here to cover some different
tastes but I keep thinking it would be fun to have
them for each holiday/season
(except that hot coffee in the summer doesn't seem so...hot!)
You can't see him very well, but that's a cute little
pengin button on the black and white one.
Aren't these a great "thankyou" for any coffee-lover?
Give it on a disposible travel cup with a gift card
(in a matching card holder?) for Starbucks inside!
Apple fabric for a teacher.
Scrub fabric for a nurse.
Music for a music teacher/artist.
Snow for the snow-lover...
Okay, you get the idea.
Next up: draft-dodgers or, "snakes," as we
called them when we were little.
Ours really were snakes with little felt
tongues and all.
I'm not sure these will hit my Market but I helped a
friend make 10 and so popped out a few extras for me.
Flannel seems to work well for these--simply fill with rice.
Now if we'd just get some winter weather and
SNOW I could put them to use! Grrrrr!!!
I'm pretty excited that I got so much done
in those three days. Even better, I made a dent in
the scrap basket but more on that later...
Have a wonderfully productive week!
