20121011-163931.jpgThis design is called the “Jill”. Named after a dear old friend that has passed away since the inception of this bag. She wanted something long and lean to hold her checkbook and her wallet. So this is what I came up with. Since then the exterior pocket has been rounded a bit and the bag is a wee bit bigger! I think I will have to get the sewing pattern started for this bag design! 🙂

Love me some Bunny Slippers!

creative, Design, fun

Ok it’s chilly again and I am in need of some slippers!

I have an obsession for Bunny Slippers. I had a few pairs way back when Target first opened up where I lived back in Michigan. They had these cute thin and simply ones. Not to bulky, just right for doing your house chores. Just kept the toesies warm!

Well they came and went after many pairs and years of being abused and chewed by pets in my past! I have been searching for them ever since.

Well there is a website called Bunnyslippers.com. Not exactly the same as the ol Target styled ones, but cute! A wee bit heavier and thicker. Good for walking around on these cold wood floors here in my house.

If anyone remembers the Target ones back in the 90’s let me know! And if they ever have brought them back.

I need some bunnies on my feet! 😉

Cool things from Lark Crafts

I like Lark Crafts Friday Free Project! I know I have posted other fun things to make from them before. I like this cute pin cushion project!

A fun and easy thing to make. Christmas is coming and this would be an easy gift to give. Make them as tree ornaments!!!
