Ribbon Embellished Kitchen Towels

My brother-in-law got married at the beginning of the month. Between airfare, a dress & a tux (luckily we didn't have to rent a car or hotel) it cost us a pretty penny to attend. So I needed a nice, cute & affordable gift to give. I saw these flour sack towels at target for super cheap. They came in a four pack but were twice the size of regular kitchen towel...so I cut them in half! Then I added holiday-ish ribbons to each of them.

Mommy & Me Aprons

For my sister's birthday I made her an apron...with matching ones for her two daughters. The girls' aprons even have their initials appliqued on the pockets. I used some old jeans and some fabric from my stash, so it only cost me my time! Apparently they turned out pretty good, because one of my sister's friends asked me to make some for her and her daughter. Hopefully I will remember to get a better picture of the "mommy" apron before I send them off this week.

Happy Birthday Cards

I enjoy making cards...I just wish I didn't make such a mess doing it! Anyway, here are a few birthday cards I've made. I really love the pink & green ones!

Sorry this one is sideways...I'm having trouble getting it to rotate properly.

My Sister's Craft Blog

My little sister recently started a craft blog! You should check it out and give her some words of encouragement since she is pretty new to this whole thing.

And I've got several projects that I need to post this week, so check back in a day or two. :)
