What I’ve Been Working On June 10, 2011

Lately I’ve been crafting my little fingers to the bone.  I’ve finally finished a few things, so I thought I’d share them with you.

These bags and a tag blanket are finally finished and out the door.  Made of 100% cotton fabric, the bags are what I send with my Munchkins when they leave care. I add three or four books I’ve picked specifically for the child, and try to pick fabric that matches their personality.  I think the smaller bag is 11×12″, and the larger one is 13×14.  Both are lined with kid-friendly handles.  The tag blanket has become one of my favorite things since I put one together for my sweetie, EB.

My favorite part of this bag is the embroidered details, like this French-knotted flower...

...little lazy daisies....

...and my favorite, a spunky blue bird.

In addition, I’m halfway through a set of felt food and 1/9 of the way done with a blanket my sister in law requested.  More to come….
