Just in time for graduation parties!
My Grad Cap Coin Pouch makes a cute gift with $$ inside.

It's also a key ring. What grad wouldn't love it with a set of keys to a new car attached :)

This zippered pouch is made completely in the 4x4 hoop.

My Frayed & Layered Flowers are ready!

I've included 3 styles of flowers that are made completely 'in the hoop'.

The back side is finished off so you can easily make hair clips, magnets, pins, etc.

These flowers sew up fast & easy.

Stuffed Owl . . . whOO

I made this owl from felt & fabric.

The eyes are machine embroidered and I used a decorative stitch to sew on the belly section and the thin felt strips.

Stuff it with love and it's ready for hugging ♥

I may draft a pettern and offer him for sale.

Frayed Layered Flowers

I'm experimenting with some quick to stitch frayed flowers.
They will be made on an embroidery machine.

Here's how the first one turned out.

These flowers can be used for hair clips, on headbands, to decorate totes, shirts, packages, create magnets, pins, etc.

I want to come up with a few more styles, then release them as a set.

W ~ Monogrammed Canvas

I followed a great tutorial by Denise to split this W (Regal font) in SCAL.

'established 1978' (Amaze font) was added in the created space. I cut it from dark brown vinyl.

The 12x12 canvas was painted light blue. It was a little tricky sticking the vinyl to the canvas, but I think it turned out great.

Dark brown velvet ribbon was glued around the edge of the canvas to finish it off.

♥ Happy Mother's Day ♥

I think this is so cute for your flower loving, gardening Mother or Mother-In-Law.

I used a clear pint size paint can (from Joanns) and lined the inside with flower seed packets. A pair of gardening gloves and a gift certificate to the local flower nursery is in the center.

It's off with a ribbon, which has the can 'opener' tied on and one of my Felt Flower Magnets ~ instructions available HERE - that sticks to the metal lid.

I glued green rickrack around the bottom of the can.

The pretty flower magnet can be used on the fridge later.

This would also be cute made using one of the larger clear paint cans.
You could fit more inside & make a 'bouquet' of flower magnets for the top.

The ribbon legs & tail really adds to the design.

I also used hot fix crystals for the eyes ~ how fun!
