What do you think of these flannel scarves??? They are about 30-inches long and about 12-inches tall. The outside is high-quality flannel and the inside is either flannel or cuddle fur (depends on the style). Some of them are even reversable! With the faux leather or suade strip and snaps, it can be worn in a variety of ways. Continue reading →

During the last few months, my grandkids have been pretending to go ‘shopping’ when they are playing at my house. They will push the grocery cart to me and expect me to ring up all of the items and bag them up (I had a few small paper bags they would use)… That is what gave me the ideas of making these pint-sized grocery bags.

I just learn how to clean a stained sewing machine the hard way…
It is my own fault, I never wash my fabric before I make a quilt. and this was one of the times I wish I would have. The quilt I made was dark red, dark green, tan, and cream (a post about this will be coming soon). The backing I chose for it was a dark red flannel.

My granddaughter loved the movie Frozen and was pleased when I showed up at her birthday party with my own version of Elsa and Anna’s dresses. They would also make great Halloween costume!
I got the pleasure of going to see Frozen with my granddaughter Blake when it was in the theater.

When my daughter started planning Blake’s 3rd birthday and decided to make it a princess theme, I decided I would make her a Princess Elsa dress to wear to the party. Of course, I also needed to make a Princess Anna dress for Tatum, my 18-month-old granddaughter!
