Friday Sew and Tell

Hey everyone! So I have finished a few things and there are some things that i would also like to share with the sew and tell community!

Firstly I went Black Friday Shopping and went to Joann;s and got some 2.99 a yard fleece to make my Papa (grandfather) a no-sew blanket for him for when he is chillin on the couch "watching" bowling, and of course I mean sleeping! Its pretty huge it fits on Garrett's full size bed. It is really soft too! All you do is cut and tie!


Also I made this cute felted snow bird with my mother and one of my sisters the other day and it came out really cute! (by the way i notice none of these are actual sewing)


I'm also working on these Fabric Flowers tutorial found here, I'm not sure what I am going to do with them yet....(really i do, i just can't say!) This is just the start I still have to make more!


That's not the vase I will be using, its just the one that i found on top of the fridge. too cute huh?

Another thing: I received my ornaments from the ornament exchange! They are wooden, and beautiful! I don't have a tree to put them on yet but the will be there as soon as I do. Rita made them, and they are made out of a rare wood found in Africa, called blood wood, because the deep red color, and it changes over time!



So that's what I have!!! I hope you like it! I can't wait to see what everyone else is doing over at Sew-n-tell Friday!
Peace & Love J-me
P.S. I have one more week of student teaching!
