Random Project #1:
I received some awesome crafty toys in the mail this week!
This 25 pack of webbing and key fob hardware was found at an Etsy shop called Everything Ribbons. I wanted to try and make these key rings and I felt this was a great way to get started. I grabbed some fabric (#shopyourownstash) and made one for a friend. The shop owner also included some instructions for use with ribbon.
My friend loved it!! She calls her little one Squirrel so this fabric was just perfect. Definitely more of these in my future. They will be perfect for small work gifts and swaps and extra family gifts. They can be completely personalized and that is what makes these key fobs so great.
Random Project #2:
I found some Frozen paper piecing patterns at Fandom in Stitches that are free for personal use. I downloaded Sven, Anna, Elsa, and Olaf. You can’t have a Frozen themed anything without Olaf! So I started on him first.
I pulled out a clear foot that I knew was in the machine storage area and started to use that to see if it would help. It helped more than I ever thought it would. It has a indent on the foot directly in front of the needle. This allowed me to make sure that I had my needle sewing in exactly the right place and I could follow the line on the pattern better than with the other foot I was using.
