Using the Scraps

There's a new driver in the house and it's important (so I hear) to have a stylish key chain. The peanut gallery wondered, "Is it a good idea to have a homemade key chain?"... Had he forgotten it was this mother who had made this child a Christening suit out of my Grandmother's antique table linen? And I wasn't going to make his first key lanyard? The result: "Hey, this is really cool, because you made it for me - but the colors are wrong." So we chose a black and red from my fabric pile, I agreed, that will work better. Finished photo to follow.

While the scraps were out, some postcards were made up.

And an eyeglass case from the pattern shown here.

I like the lanyards and keychains. I'm thinking of making some too.

My son and I work together on aprons and chef hats. A month or so ago he called and asked for a new apron. So, I quickly made him one with a border print that had veggies and some other bright colors. Welllll, apparently it had too much purple and he didn't like the squiggly lines in the background. . . . .hmmph, so I haven't been as quick to make any more aprons unless he chooses the fabric!

Oh, cool! I have two young drivers also but what's wrong with making one for moi!
