{Crazy Blessed Love} Feature Friday

Woo hoo!!  Week #3 of Feature Friday!
Until I get some time to really blog about what I've been working on, here's a sneak peek!

1) Sock Monkey Completed! 2) Sock Monkeys Cut Out to Complete 3) Lots of patching and hemming
4) Embroidering quilt squares   5) Cutting out Quilt Pieces for my niece   6) Button/Embroidery Art

On to our features!  You won't see many (or any!) Halloween features.  After the past month of Halloween projects, I'm already over it.  {Yep, and we're still over a week away...}

Let me just put this out there right now...I'm cheap.  If I can make something out of scraps or garbage, I'm all for it.  And I love this tutorial for gift bows!  I'm going to sit down and make a bunch for gifts!

I have a thing for chandeliers {remember this post here?}  Isn't this beautiful!?!  A huge transformation from the original piece!

I love this homemade casserole carrier!  I adore this fabric. {see projects here and here using it}  Such a great gift idea too!

I love this tip to cheat your way to a winter wardrobe.  I do this too, except we just have a white and pink long sleeve shirt that we layer tees over.  The nice thing about this tip?  You can do it with any color!  Gotta do this...

This is such a great tutorial for reverse applique.  And it's such a cute way to glam up a plain shirt.

  1. My grandmother used to make casserole carriers like that!!! And I can't wait to see your post about the button art. When I was in high school, I worked at a dry cleaners and they had jars and jars and jars of buttons. When I'd get bored at work, I'd use them to make art, but with glue, not sewing. :o)

  2. wow Thank you so much for featuring me and my gift bow tutorial! I really appreciate the shout out! :)
