My family loved the Christmas mug rugs I made them so much, that I had to make some one for the Winter (but really wishing for Spring) months. My kids were so excited that they wanted to make theirs. Even though it’s nice to just get things done, taking the time to teach them to sew is worth it. Besides, they love the quality time and I can practice that not everything has to be perfect to be good. It’s a win-win.
My 5 year old pieced and quilted her own. She picked out the cross hatch quilting.
My 3 year old sewed for the first time! I let him do straight line quilting on his and he did surprisingly well!
Swipe to see theirs up close! 👉
Spontan überlegte ich mir, als ich dieses Teil vorhin bei Angie @ang@angiedu sah, was das das wohl sein mag? Eine Krone? Eine Tulpenschale? Es ist ein Bowlcozy, genäht nach der Anleitung von @craftygemini, schaut euch mal das YouTube Tutorial an, ruckzuck ist so ein Teil genäht und nix mehr mit verbrannten oder verkühlten Fingerchens 👏. Natürlich gleich zwei genäht, damit mein Schatz auch eins abbekommt. Danke liebe @angiedu für diese tolle Sonntagabendinspiration😘😂...#bowlcozy #topflappen#potholder#nähen#nähenverbindet#ichliebestoffe#insulbright#raabart
I apologize for being so inactive ugh!! I’ve been so busy with school and haven’t been able to post any art or even draw. I’m working on a digitalized piece now, I’ll try to post it tomorrow. Again, apologies for being inactive!! For an exchange, have my rosemary plant named Curly. -Sushi🍣 #rosemary#potholder#maroon#tabbycat#botany
I can use planted pots to replace cooking pots to show scale for these large marble potholders, yes? 🍃 #potatopotAto 🤷🏻♀️
I’ve had these succulent plants for ☝🏼 FULL year now 🙌🏼 and by no means am I a green thumber just yet, but I’m striving to plant my own herbs (and keep them alive) to grow fresh + simple seasonings. 👩🏻🌾 Anyone trying to simplify an aspect of your life? #simplelivingsaturday
Sloth paper pieced block made for a pot holder for Mike.
Also- if you’re wondering what I mean by “zero waste” it’s this. After I make a box top I gather up all of the scraps leftover from the shirt I used to make it- collars, cuffs, odd shapes. Sometimes I dye them, and then I tear out all of the seams and fuss and iron them flat. The big pieces go in the quilt pile, and the small ones become potholders! And wall hangings! See those dark blue pieces top left? Those are scraps from the box top I just posted, dyed in indigo. // This is the last potholder left from this particular series. It’s filled with recycled wool (leftovers from balaclavas). Shop link 🔝
