Here is a super cute tunic I saw at DownEast, but it was $30. I couldn't justify
spending that much on something that looked so simple to make.
So, I studied it and then made my own version:
I had a Visiting Teaching luncheon at my place, and made these silverware
holders out of mason jars, and spray painted a square with
chalkboard paint and wrote everybody's name on them.
Very functional as place holders/silverware display/drinking glasses.
Mackenzie and I are going to Minnesota in August! We are setting
aside $50/week, so of course I had to make this cute jar
with the shape of MN on it to hold our monies :)
My mission "mom" AND "daughter" (trainer and trainee) both had their
birthday on April 22, so I made them these pillow cases with
fabric that I got from Paris on the back (you can't see it).
As I learned from my amazing roommate Annie Gehmlich, you
can never have too many pillows on your bed. I made these quick no-sew
covers out of the flat sheet that came with our bed in a bag.
I originally bought this fabric to make another tunic, but I decided
to make a skirt with it. I made the whole thing while watching The Help,
then wore it to the temple that day.
I cut out about 100 hexagons and just ironed them on
to a piece of white fabric to make this bird-themed table runner.
(Also shown is my cute table display which I'm very proud of)
Finally, my super cute door wreath that I MADE UP MYSELF. I of
course used elements from different wreaths I'd found on Pinterest, but
the overall design was MY OWN. That's nearly a first.
If anyone is interested in making their own versions of these things or paying me to make one for you, let me know! And if you have a birthday or other special event coming up and I know about it, you might just find something in your mailbox...
