Curtains for Mom ♥

Back in Jan. when Alex graduated & moved, we switched my Mom's room with his.

It's got a brighter window and the room is a bit larger. I finished up these curtains last week & made the small matching bathroom curtain today.

She loves the black & white damask rage now :) and I love grommets.
The bedrooms are a jack & jill style ( connecting bathroom ) so I like the flow of having the same curtain fabric in both rooms. I also made a curtain from the same fabric for the small bathroom window.

I've got a little fabric left that I could make either a 20x20 pillow or 2 14x14 pillows. I'll wait until I have some coupons for JoAnns for the forms.

Monogram Coffee Sleeves

I ♥ coffee! I love the taste, the color, the smell. It's warm, satisfying & gives me just the boost I need some afternoons.

So I had to create these Monogram Coffee Sleeves. They're made completely 'in the hoop' on your embroidery machine ~ just sew on a button

The fun, trendy monograms are embedded into the coffee sleeve designs.

I came up with a couple of cute packaging ideas for gift giving your Monogram Coffee Sleeve. Perfect for teachers, co-workers, friends, birthdays . . .

Roll up a couple of soft, dark brown (coffee color) wash cloths and put inside a 20 oz clear cup. Roll up a pair of white fuzzy socks for the whipped cream and place on top of the washcloths. Pop a clear domed lid on, insert a coffee stirrer through the hole, tie on a Starbucks giftcard and slide a Monogram Coffee Sleeve onto the cup.

The other idea is to tightly roll a Starbucks gift card (punch a hole in it & tie a ribbon on) in a pair of soft, fuzzy socks concealing it. Wrap the Monogram Coffee Sleeve around it. It'll look like a cupcake :) Pull the ribbon and the giftcard comes up.

We're under a blizzard watch now, but I'm thinking SPRING!

I used felt & fabric and added a length of pipe cleaner for antennae.
