It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Reader Homemade Projects Take 2!

Our Paige is a busy girl.  She sent a photo of a holiday top she has embellished for another gift!

She started with a nice red turtleneck..

And Grandma has a brand new party top!

Appliqués are a great way to dress up a garment or, cover-spots on hand me down kids clothes. 

Another way to make good use of these is for shopping bags.  If I have to purchase the darn bags, I’m sure not advertising for them.  Besides the Kroger folks are not very happy when I come in with my Meijer bags & I like to use them for more than groceries. Like the library & farmers market.  So, a quick & easy fix is to iron a appliqué on the front to cover up the offending logo. 

Paige has another project in the works & here’s a sneak peek!

A gift in the works for her father in law

Birdhouse 1

Can’t wait to see the finished project!
