I decided to combine my normal Thrifty Thursday post with a Crafty things post to make it a Fabulous Friday! lol
We have never done the whole Halloween thing around here. Personally, it's one of those holidays that I think we should just skip over and with allergies and what not, it just seems pointless. However, I do realize not everyone feels the same way and that's fine. The youth group decided to have a party and let the kids dress up, as long as it was something not evil.
Emily wanted to be a cat. We are very tight right now and I don't have money to go buy a costume nor would I want to for one night out of the entire year. Fortunately, my daughter is starting to buy into my frugal ways and she said that all she needed was a tail and some ears.
So I whipped them up for her. She told me that all I had to do was cut some construction paper ears, but I thought her frugality deserved a superior set of them! :-)
Here was the final result. Isn't she cute?
This has been a busy week of sewing. I have a craft fair coming up in two weeks. The local boutique that carries some of my things wanted some children's aprons and sold out of the table runners I had there. Also I received a message last night from a local tea store that they needed more tea cozies and tea totes.
These are all great problems to have but I've been busy, busy, busy! :-)
Here are the children's aprons. I love the fabric on these.
I made an adult apron and have the material cut out for the second.
I made a bunch of tissue holders. I filled an order for 18 tea totes and forgot to take a picture.
This morning I put together a table runner top. I just need to sandwich it, quilt it and bind it. You can tell the holidays are coming!
So I've been getting orders. I'm productive. I'm frugal. And I feel fabulous on this Friday! :-)
