$1 DIY Stocking Stuffers

If you haven’t been to Michaels lately you need to go, like yesterday. The have the greatest little DIY stocking stuffer ornaments this year. I bought a ton. I just have to find time to get them all made in time.29681030344_bf0aa89f2b_z

Halloween Baby Kisses Quilt

I decided I wanted to make something fun the the house and stopped by the quilt shop to see what I could get into. I found a Halloween charm pack for $5.00.  Bunny Hill Designs Spooky Delight. Being the thrifty chic I am, I went directly to the register with it!

I decided to make one block of the ‘Baby Kisses’ quilt. Watched a Missouri Star Quilt Co video on YouTube and felt it was easy enough for someone of my quilting level… on a scale of 1 to 10, I’m a 0. But now I think I’m a quilting pro (just kidding)!  The blocks were pretty easy. Using pre-cuts is definitely the way to go to save time and frustration as a newbie. halloweenbabykissesquilt1

My squares are all stitched up and ready for quilting and binding! 🙌 It’s far from perfect, but everybody’s gotta start somewhere right? I’m not going to fuss over the wonky spots. I’m just happy to have not lost my mind getting this this far… *sigh* I swore I would never try to quilt. I had no business walking into that quilt shop last year! I don’t think this will be the end of my quilting journey. It was kinda fun. Especially on a small scale. Finished it all in one weekend 🙂

Mermaid Cloth Doll

I’m still searching for my niche in this game of sewing so I tried making a cloth doll. A mermaid! I am happy with how she turned out. I definitely need more practice on the invisible stitch… after trying for about 30 minutes I gave up. I’ll save that fancy stuff for the next one! 🙂

Whooo’s ready for Halloween?

Halloween. I’m not sure how to feel about it now as an adult. The past 5 years we have had 2 trick or treaters. Total. Two! And last year we had the full size candy bars and everything. No one came. Or maybe we just didn’t notice them… our doorbell was and still is broken.Halloween Tote
