travel size tissue covers

Hello!  Happy Valentine's Day!  It's a very windy day today.  Feels like a hurricane blowing outside.  Plus we got caught in the rain when we went out to run some errands this morning.

Anyway, I have a sewing project to share today.

I made 11 little tissue covers following this great tutorial I found HERE.  There are a lot of tutorials on how to sew these but I like that these have boxed corners and the opening is not centered but off a bit to accommodate the opening of the tissue packets.

This is the first one I sewed for myself.  You can see the tissue packet has its opening near the top and not centered.  

After I made this first one, the cover felt a bit roomy so I made the top opening overlap the bottom just a tiny bit but it still feels a bit loose around the packet.

This one shows the overlap of the opening.  I like that it stays a bit closed instead of opened.  

I think whenever I find a cute project to do, I always want to make a lot of them using all the different fabrics I have.  But I'm glad I'm using the stuff I have.  I'll be hoarding these little covers for a little while and maybe gift them throughout the year.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Denice said… adorable project! I have to say that tissue packs get lost in the bottom of my purse because they get squished...what a great sewing project!

Love the overlap! Perfect solution because the one in my bag always gapes open. Great fabrics, too!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
