Two Peacocks With a Sign

The Graphics Fairy shared this vintage peacocks with a sign image. I just happen to love peacocks and the colors fit in perfectly with my decor. I immediately downloaded it and typed "Welcome to our home" into the sign.

My Stash: Ball Canning Jars

I enjoyed putting mustaches on these Ball Collection Elite Pint Wide Mouth Jars. These darling Ball jars were sent to me by the manufacturer, and a sweet colleague surprised me one day with the mustache stickers. I have been wanting to make these for a long time.

From Shirts to Bags

I'm still sewing bags and will probably continue on for awhile. I went to the fabric store and purchased a whole bolt of twill tape. I have recently fallen in love with twill tape.

Lined Drawstring Bag Tutorial

I have been wanting to make little drawstring bags for quite some time. Well, I finally got in the mood to get sewing last week. This is what I came up with after thinking through several ways to sew it. Since I have just gotten back into sewing, I do not have a stash of fabric yet, so I made this one from remnants from my master bathroom window treatment.

Music Tags

I have been wanting to make tags to have handy throughout the year for gifts and such. I showed you in an earlier post how I used my die cut machine to make tags from Christmas cards. I really like this particular tag. I like how it folds over so you can write something inside and tuck it closed.
