It's Just Another Crafty Tuesday

I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend. We sure made the most it.

Last week's free time was spent making these two guys. The last two I made for a shop here locally sold really fast so she requested a couple more. The owls have quite of a reputation at the shop. The person I sell them to always lets me know where they go to live. It is fun.


I snuck away on Friday afternoon for some thrifting at Goodwill. I lucked out and found a bunch of different fabric. I usually find sheets or pillowcases. Rarely do I find fabric. I felt like I had hit the jackpot. I found the blue fabric below and thought it would be perfect for the Fourth of July. I already had the red polka dot fabric from Christmas. I had planned on making a shirt, but Harper requested a skirt. It worked out better because I was short on time. The skirt was easy to throw together.


Don't you just love the natural pose?

I have a couple of birthday presents to make. Hopefully I will get around to those this week so I will have something new and different to show next week.

Happy Crafty Tuesday!!

I can imagine that those cute owls go over pretty well. That's great that you have a local store to sell them to. Love Harper's skirt, too. Great 4th outfit!
