I'm sure I'm pretty safe to share this with you....I made these for a few people for Christmas. I call them "Curling Iron Cozies", but call them what you want. They are made with thermal batting, so when traveling you don't have to worry about placing a still warm iron into your luggage. I know I will be using mine quite often as it seems like we are out of town every weekend or so!
I was thinking that since I didn't get anything in my stocking last year....not even a lump of coal, that maybe you would really like to make this girls Christmas morning even more merrier by filling it with this fat quarter bundle....
I see your little elves at The Fat Quarter Shop are going to help you make some other girl quilters (who are in the same boat as me) out, so this is my attempt at that wonderful opportunity!
I know you are busy Santa, but I've been such a good girl the past 2 years!! I've changed diapers, babied my 2 year old, babied my husband, and have set my quilting aside to do the normal house work when I'd rather not!!
P.S. If you want your chance at something from Santa, go here!
P.S.S. You know Santa, if you don't fulfil my wish this year, you know I am probably just going to get this gift for myself......I hope that doesn't ruin my chances!!
I've still been busy making gifts. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel though, I'm very excited for Christmas this year! This is what I got for Christmas. I wanted a small machine to take to classes and when I travel to my in-laws. I just cringe at the thought of my Pfaff riding in the back of the pick-up bouncing around with who knows what. This little guy is 3/4 the size of a regular machine and much more compact to travel with.
Tonight Max and I made a pillow and I couldn't believe how nice this thing sews! I LOVE it!
Here's Max laying on the owl pillow we made. He sat on my lap and helped me guide the fabric, then he helped me stuff it. What fun we had! I'm sure in no time he will be running the "pedal" for me!
I took the pledge to make more of my Christmas gifts this year, and that's what I've been doing. Sorry I can't show any pictures, but there will be plenty after the end of the month! God has blessed me with so much, and I decided that I will use those gifts he has given me and share them with the ones I love! This is a picture of a few gifts I made last year...
