Party On

Felt Garlands
What do you you do when you realise your felt is over flowing,
and you want to find ways of getting it to make money for you
rather than it going to waste, as I don't use it as much as I used to..
I got my sidekick cutter out, finally got around to purchasing a few different size circles
and got cutting, and I haven't even made a dent in the felt pile.
Problem now is I will want other colours to match those I do have to make more garlands.
(I never ending circle! such a bad pun!!)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everybody!!
Did you get any crafty sewing in over the holidays?
I didn't dust mine down until New Years Eve,
the little bits I photographed today 

After purchasing super soft sunggly fleece,
I thought I would made some small quilted blankets for baby strollers, buggies and car seats.
This one is 18" x 27"
Made with 5" squares (4 x 6)
Hopefully will made great gifts for newborns!
And to match...
Baby burp cloths, I guess not your everyday one, but the posh ones you take out!
(match your outfit!)
I made a shaped pattern for the neck
These use 1/2 a FQ 9 x 18 before sewn. 
If you are interested in the pattern, let me know.
And I can scan in and upload for you to download... 
Same baby burp cloths in Tilda baby pinks and mint.
 These are backed in cotton towelling
I will be finishing a quilted blanket in this one too.
When I get my iron back..........
Hubby lent it to our young neighbour last night and hasn't been home since..
If you are also back to work tomorrow,
I will be there with you in the office for 8am.........
Strong coffee, I probably will be starving hungry all day from being able to pick at food
any-time in the last 10 days!
