As my moniker shows, the sewing machine is a comfy place for me. I love to sew, and stitch as well. I have a few completed projects to share with you.
In the photo above, you will see my Punch Needle Embroidery, it's a great medium. It is relatively simple, it just requires a little patience. I have had this kit for a few years, and finally got it framed to display this year. I love this, it feels so old fashioned.
Then I thought I would make some little holiday pillows. I love little pillows that hang on door knobs. I didn't make this one, but I love it!
But these I did make. A little Ho Ho Ho!
And this one is Naughty one side, Nice on the other.
This pillow was actually a tote bag that my mom was given from her grade school. She really wanted it in a pillow so I made this little one, I love the white pom pons with the elementary theme!
Finally, I have been looking for a dog bed for Sookie, the one-eyed Bichon. Dog beds are ugly. If you don't go for a rustic plaid for a hunting dog, then you get these cheesey pink and black diva dog beds. I am not a fan. Plus, they are ridiculously expensive. So, I knew Sookie likes to cuddle on our pillows, so I emulated that effect. This is the simplest of all designs, no sew at all! But it was cheap, like $3 for the fabric, and a few bucks worth of poly fill. When it is dirty, it goes to the trash. And, I can make more for other rooms. She loves this little bed! Especially when that winter sun comes through that window. I can always find her chasing the sunshine.
I have more in the pipeline, but for now, what are you waiting for? Get in there and craft!
