I'm Back!! It has been pretty crazy!

Sorry, it's been awhile since my last post! It have been crazy here! I have started my new job and I travel to a town about an hour away to stay during the week. I am loving it! I'm in a city now and love all the shops! Of course, the first thing I did was check out the local quilt & craft stores! Love 'em!

I have missed checking out all of ya'lls blogs! I hope I am more settled now and can get on my blog. I have several projects to share coming up! I have made fabric beads and a fabric bowl! Pretty cool!

Wet Wipe Cover Instructions

This again was made with scraps and it really didn't turn out like I thought, but it is still nice.
I bought a round container of wet wipes and just wrapped my fabric around to measure, then added a 1/2 inch seam allowance , cut the piece of fabric out. Then I went ahead and sewed my bottom and top seams leaving room for elastic to be threaded through.
After threading the elastic through, I pinned it in place and then with right sides together, I sewed my seam down the side, catching the elastic at the top and bottom. Turn it right side out and slide onto canister of wipes. So easy!!

Tissue Box Cover Instructions

Ok, I made this with larger scrap pieces and it turned out so cute. And what babies room doesn't need tissues...right.

It fits right over the top of a tissue box.

I just measured the sides and cut pieces of fabric, adding a 1/4 inch seam allowance for each side. Then for the top, I measured and added a 1/4 inch seam allowance for each of the edges that are on the side and for the middle 'slit', I added a 1/2 inch seam allowance and sewed this first, then I pined each end of my slit and treated it just like I would a side and sewed, wrong sides together. When that is all done, just go along your bottom edge and sew 1/4 inch seam. Now turn right side out.
I bought a yo-yo maker and thought adding one yo-yo to the top with several stitches just made it pop. It is late and I am tired, so please let me know if you have any questions.
