Summer Totes

What a busy week!! We've been having so much fun: swimming, painting, nature walks, gardening, chalk murals, and summer totes!!!  I've been wanting to make totes and summer seemed a perfect time.   Of course, it is very important to include the kids in my summer craft activities.  So, Little Man, Ladybug, and my sister's grandbaby, Little Queen, picked out an animal hand-print that they wanted on their totes.  

I should have videoed the process of painting the kids feet and hands and then printing them onto the Fabric!  Utter Chaos!  It was so funny!  I couldn't have done it without my sister. After they hand/foot printed their fabric, I let them dry overnight.  Then I painted over the prints with Mod Podge and let them dry again.  Then I sewed them up into totes (Tutorial Here)!!  It is super easy and oh so cute.  I've finished Little Man's and Little Queen's and I MUST finish Ladybug's this weekend!!  Little Man isn't really "into" paint…

Charity Blocks and Summer Stuff

It's boiling hot here, so we've been heading to the pool this past week!  The water is perfect and so refreshing!  I have been able to steal a few minutes here and there to sew!

Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts is teaming up with Margret's Hope Chest to make some blocks for charity quilts.  There are tutorial links and information on both websites for the type of blocks they need.  The blocks are to be monochromatic.  Mine are for the most part, but not perfectly one color, because my stash just isn't that big yet.  Hopefully, they'll be workable; if not, I'm sure they can work them into a different style quilt.  The blocks are super quick, easy, and ohhh so cute.  :)


I'm also working on some Lanyards for my sister, she's a teacher.  One of the best, I might add!  I also made her a mug rug, just because.  :)  Did you know that it's nearly impossible to make lanyards with a little kitten running around!  He was jumping and crawling all over me trying…

Grits and a Phone Purse

It all started with an ole grits bag.  My sister, Peaches, had visited Helen, GA and she brought me back some wine and grits.  The wine was so delicious and the grits were so tasty.  Neither one lasted very long. ha!  Well, when I got down to the end of my grits bag, I thought, hmmm this is fabric, I wonder what I could make with it.
It was a small piece of fabric just big enough to make a zipper pouch for my phone...then I added a strap and I had my very own crossbody phone purse. The back of the purse is the nutritional information of the grits.  lol.  I didn't really think much about it until people started commenting on my 'phone purse'.  I guess it's pretty unique to wear a grits bag.  :) It's actually very convenient to have.  I use to carry my phone in my back pocket, but after 'butt' calling people I knew I needed to think of something else.  It's just big enough for my keys, phone, and wallet.  Since it's a crossbody, I don't leave my …
