344. tinsel wreath.

milo and I worked on this tinsel wreath after seeing something like it in Time Out Kids. We took a 6 inch embroidery hoop and wrapped a package of tinsel-y pipe cleaners around it, stringing a few bells here and there as well.

191. fabric wall pocket.

I saw this on pinterest, and knew I needed to make some for my office. It takes about 30 seconds to make one. The hardest part for me was figuring out what fabric to use…I ended up using an silk scarf I never have worn and some scrap fabric I had lying around. I hung it right in front of my computer. I want to make a few of them and use them organize bills to be paid, receipts, etc. These require no sewing – just some cutting, fabric scraps and emboridery hoop!

(The little elephant is from a set of cocktail napkins my friend gave me – I used an emboridery hoop to frame it!)

89. wicket.

We’re a little star wars crazy over here. I saw something like this on the internet, and made my own version. I used an old shirt, left over from the bunting project, and felt pieces, then embroidered it into place.
