Waiting to hear from my buyer. Will post a finished photo once I am done.

Go here to make your own sunbonnet potholder. I didn’t do all the bells and whistles. Just simple and easy after making the sunbonnet.


Seeing Red… And Pink

Every February around Valentine’s Day, I like to make something in red or with hearts.

Last year, if you remember, I was up to my eyeballs in purple, lime, pink and white. Hearts were everywhere. Piles stacked, strung as a garland, even in a Shadowbox. I had gone heart crazy!!


This year, I dialed it back a bit and just did a couple of things. Actually just one NEW item. A little girl’s red and pink purse.

A Little Missy Purse.

The other two were already made. I just added pink hearts and pink ribbon to the mauve one.

And undid the bottom on this red one to shorten it by about 6 inches.

Then added a red and white hearts bow.

My original plan was to add heart buttons…. But went with the bow instead. I will probably, later on, add a red lining.
