Soo cute, easy & inexpensive.
What a precious idea from the 30 Handmade Days blog!

And here is an Earring Tutorial from the cheerful Casa de Lewis blog

You can skip steps 1-5 on her tutorial and just whip up your buttons with the iTOP and then just hot glue them to your earring backs.

Too simple, huh?! 
Wow ’em with the Wine Bottle…
Isn’t this a great way to spuce up that wine bottle you are taking to your friend’s Christmas party?
How simple… Just make a pretty button (or two or three), cut out a few fabric leaves and a square of fabric/burlap and tie it all together with some raffia around your bottle. Just lovely.
And of course our favorite has got to be embellishing those beautiful quilts!
Bunny Hill is such a perfect example of how covered buttons can add that special touch to your quilt.
Their A Tisket A Tasket block of the month is absolutely darling with its little button embellishments.

 Here is a little video to see how easy the iTOP is…

I’m in need of stocking patterns to make some stockings for my newest pet, Gracie and future ones. The previous ones were made by a sister-in-law.

I think our sad stockings are those red and white felt ones from the store, and now that I am a quilter, it just won’t do!! I’d have to make some cute ones for my doggies too.

On the 5th Day of Christmas…

Today we have a special treat from Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms
Hello there! Just popping in to show you what I’ve been up to over here so far this holiday season. Making stockings, of course!
Last year I made some new stockings for my little family (3 sons, one husband, and one dog). Everyone had their requests of what they wanted their stocking to be. The husband wanted something non-girly with no flowers. Check. Boy 1 wanted something simple, and picked out the fabric for the front and back of his. (Robots, of course) Boy 2 picked out his fabric, red, gray, dogs, even a tiny bit of red plaid left over from his baby blanket. Check. Boy 3 wasn’t picky yet, as wouldn’t be born for a few more weeks (he is much pickier now, at almost one year old). Easy. Dog? Dogs. He seemed happy. My stocking is made from the scraps of one of my favorite quilts. Perfect for me.
After showing them on my blog, I made the stockings into a pattern, and have since seen so many fun stockings made by my friends and customers. In fact, just this weekend I had two friends come over for a stocking party.
We made 11 stockings in about a day, and they just couldn’t have turned out better. Aren’t they cute? The stockings, and my cute friends, of course. (Thanks girls!)

On the 2nd Day of Christmas…

Day 2 and another gift for you.
June Tailor’s twist n stitch ruler has 4 different cutting size options all in one ruler. Best results with a small rotary cutter to fit in the slots for the size cuts you want to make. We tried this ruler out by using some of the bella charm packs in Christmas colors.
sew the charm packs into a layout of your choice. 

                                             add a border before you start cutting.

Line up the markings on the ruler and cut accordingly to the size you want.
Today we will be giving away a June Tailor Twist ‘n Stitch ruler! Don’t be surprised if there are some charm packs in your stocking package. Make sure to leave a comment to tell us why you want Santa to leave this in YOUR stocking!
