Funky Wristlets

You may have noticed the door prize that I gave away at Friday’s vendor night.  Here is the story as to how it was born:

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Mel asked me to come up with a wristlet design to give as 8th grade graduation gifts.  After scouring the fabric store, I found some adorable fabric that is young and fun, but not too juvenile for soon-to-be high schoolers.  Here is what I made:

 
I added some turquoise piping between the fabrics, which I think gave it a nice touch!

I added a small pocket on the inside, big enough to hold a lip gloss or an ID card.  I was so excited when Mel emailed me to tell me that she loved them! 

I intended to make a few of them for the vendor night, but I was only able to complete one by the time Friday rolled
around.

This became my door prize, and I was so excited to see the response it received!

Felt Applique Wristlets and Enjoying the Snow

Here is a preview of my latest project:

But, before I get into the details, I wanted to share some thoughts and a fun photo from this morning.

It’s such a beautiful morning here in Virginia.  I am thoroughly enjoying seeing all of this weekend’s snow glimmering in the sunlight.  The sound of the snow melting from the trees is one I won’t soon forget.

My kiddos made their first ever snowman.

I’m proud to say that they did it all on their own.  Not bad for two former Floridians!

Last week, my daughter asked if we could make some more fun little wristlets similar to the heart applique wristlet from earlier this month.  She picked out a few fabrics, some felt, and we got to work.

Here is what we came up with:

Blue and white chevron with pink bird applique
