Illuminated for a celebration

Tall bucket tote
with a folded package seamed base
is perfect for holidays and celebrations.
An easier than cut n' sew project
made with a quarter yard of fabric
(I used organic cotton sateen)
and fusable interfacing to make it nice and sturdy.

Bean Bag Buns Toy Kit

This little guy is the prototype for a new
bean bag pattern kit.
Made of organic cotton sateen, and poly stuffing.
The pattern has 8 to 12 bunnies to a fat quarter,
and 32 to 48 bunnies to a yard,
depending on the fabric type.
The actual bunny from the fabric kit is even cuter!
I added a pom pom tail to this one,
and it is filled with rice.
Now available at Spoonflower, KDL Designs:

Holiday Cheer Stockings

Decorative fabrics for fun and gifts.
I love pre-printed fabric kits that are fun and festive.
It was fun to make this one.
A 4 Stocking kit on a yard.
These were easy and fast to put together,
with straight stitch quilting,
one layer of batting,
and cotton muslin on the insides.
I used coordinating ric rac for loops to hang.
I especially love the little ruffle detail.
Several ornaments are included with this kit,
you can make 20 two dimensional or 10 three dimensional
flower ornaments.

Fabric Pins

I've been thinking of ways to use my fabric swatches and scraps.
I came across some pin backs I had picked up at 
a crafters sale.
 Cat Nap Pin.
Inside is one layer of batting and interfacing.
 Sew pin on back.
Backed with cotton muslin.
Little tractor pin is backed with interfacing.
Cute to identify your belongings,
such as a backpack or luggage,
or inside a coat.
Apple and Pear Pins.
