These coffee cup sleeves are a stocking stuffer. I used Terri's template and you can find it on The Three Creative Studios site.
I used a form of Timtex because that is what I had. It worked fine, I didn't use a fusible, but stuck the fabric together with a glue stick and quilted it. The blue sleeve is not quilted yet. I doodled out the designs with my textile paints.
This was a fun project.
The creative prompt for the week is holiday. I love the look of hanging baubles at the holidays.
There were so many cardinals at the feeder today. This was taken out my sewing room window.
My friend Sharon and I have been brainstorming this wallet. She made one awhile ago and wanted to tweak it a little. So, finally - last week we found some time and made ourselves a pattern. It's a little larger than your basic wallet, it's more like a wallet/clutch.
There is plenty of room for everything inside. We used accordian type pleats for the sides so the wallet opens nicely.
On the reverse side is another zippered pocket. And of course a little bling. Sharon might use a zipper closure for her wallet, I used a magnetic clasp. When she is finished maybe she'll let me post photos of it.

The Creative Prompt for last week was flame. I knew right away what I would doodle. Who isn't reminded of a yule log when you think of flame during the Holidays?
But, really, what came to my mind first was - being a kid and visiting Dad's friend Pier. On his Christmas tree he had real, burning candles. It was quite magical.

I think the stockings could be my favorite part of the Holiday. I love to fill them and we have a lot of fun going through them. The stockings I made a long time ago bit the dust last year. Truthfully, they were too fancy anyway... sequins, tassels, brocade... Target bailed me out with these. Cute and just perfect.
sorry for the blurry pictures today.... tis the season, I guess.
