The last couple of weeks have just FLOWN by and it had nothing to do with the holidays and everything to do with getting all my classes ready for the new year. I have classes, on top of classes, on top of more classes for between January and April. Add to that a writing gig with Sew it All magazine and it has been a recipe for CRAZY. Super duper excited about it can you tell???
I feel really blessed that so many want to come learn from me.. it just happens to mean a very intense time of getting all the project samples done, instructions written, and photos done.
But now comes the fun part.. sharing my projects with you over the next few weeks.
I spend a lot of my time working to come up with effective inexpensive gifts that can be made with the embroidery machine and am tickled pink with my new ~ Hear Buddies~ Ear Bud Wraps. With little more than 2 layers of Stiff Felt and thread you end up with a fun and functional little gift that most grads can use to keep their technology safe and sound. Bundle it up with an I-Tunes gift card and you have a gift that will move you into their top-40 for sure! ( oh how I date myself!)
The Bear, Frog and Butterfly are exclusive to my upcoming class and will not be released for general sale until after that point but with small holiday gifts in mind the Gamers Edition will be released and up for sale the end of this week, just in time to whip up a couple for holiday giving.
If you want to be ready to make these here is what you are going to need to have on hand:
- Super Solvy or Badge Master
- Easy Felt -Stiff felt ( kids crafting section) - regular felt will NOT work
- Silver Book Rings ( Office supply store)
- Black woven pony tail elastics ( the type they will not pop or break- but not the thick ones)
- Heavy duty hole punch - Crop-a-dile Big Bite or similar model
Wish me luck on getting a video done in time!
