A big pile-o-sewing to do

Well I've been a lazy social media gal the past week or so - no blog, Twitter or Facebook updates... I am feeling the craft love these days just a little quiet for once! I have been working on crafts but everything is in process and not complete. I have 4 pillow covers, 6 iPhone sleeves and 6 coffee sleeves in the works.

My iPhone and coffee sleeves are nearly done. I'm going to stitch the inside to the outside then seal them up this week. All of these pieces are for Favourite Unique Gifts and Accessories. I've also decided to make some pillow covers for my 2 round 12" x 12" pillow forms. Each will have a love theme - just in time for Valentine's Day. Hopefully Carol at Favourite will take these as well!

Lately I've seen projects using this line by the Beatles so here's my variation...



It's hard to get a break from sewing these days. Other sewing projects include these 2 pillow covers for a friend. She has my gorgeous office chair update update. I found both pieces of fabric at the Salvation Army on different trips - lucky I was able to grab each!

Here's the office chair update...

The Craft Extravanga

Soon I'll need to prep for my Craft Extravanga this Sunday. I'm still unsure as to what project we should do or maybe have people work on their own projects. Who knows! I thought making potato stamps could be fun or painting dishes... Or making something small with felt and a touch of applique.

Pay It Forward 2011

Anyone else sharing the handmade love this year? A friend posted this on Facebook - she makes kewl stuff so I signed up. She makes me something then I make 5 other people a handmade item. The easy thing (hopefully) is that I have all year to create and deliver whatever I decide to make for my 5 lucky recipients.

Pay It Forward 2011: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must in turn post this and send something handmade to the first 5 people who comment on their status.* The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent out to your 5 people sometime in 2011.
