A Little Twist on a basic cold weather Knit Cap

Here's a little freestyle decorative twist on an otherewise basic cold weather knit cap.
I just wanted to add a little interesting element to it.
(The buttons are decorative only)
It's fun to wander away, even slightly, from a basic pattern.

Just to make something somewhat unique.

I Love Kawaii!

Ever since I watched Speed Racer as a kid, I have loved the Japanese kawaii style. Here is my little cartoon design, my personal take on kawaii ("cuteness").

Animal Masks, a Super Easy and Practically No-Sew Craft Idea

Make them up in a jiffy.
This is my design for the Masks theme at Spoonflower.
Super easy to make Halloween Animal Masks (or just for everyday play).
I ordered them on quilting weight fabric, ironed on fusable interfacing,
then cut them out. To hold mask on, I chose 1/4 inch braided elastic, hand sewn to the
left and right of the eye holes, about 3/4 of an inch to each side in a coordinating
thread color.
Trick or Treat!
(My husband found this to be just hilarious on me!)
Tiger Cub, super cute for kids.
Panda, Rabbit and Owl, too!
(On a fat quarter there are all 4 masks, on a yard of quilting weight fabric, you get a total of 16)

New Cutout Patterns on a yard, Mod Relic Apron

This apron design was inspired by elements of an antique linen, and reinterpreted as a modern updated print
for this craft or cooks apron.
As my cut and sew patterns come in,
I've been making them up for future gifts.

Here's my favorite color ;-)
The pockets are hard to see, but they are there!

Here is a blog with great ideas for recycling and repurposing your old garments:
