Sewing Gifts
Yes I have been sewing gifts. Lots of birthdays this month and some belated ones from last month!
 First wanted to share this 2.5 yard piece of Windham fabric picked up at local thrift for $2.99!
Has the look of a coverlet. Do not recall this Buffalo Bill line. Anyway score!!!

 Our son is one of the belated February birthdays we are celebrating this Sunday! He loves to fish and cook out. So his gift is an apron, custom made for his tallness, out of this fish fabric!
 It really can be reversed as well. Has a pocket for the cook'n rag , as DH calls them!
 This pic looks a bit werid but anyway here it is hanging. Did ties for the neck .
 To match he has potholders. These are my own design I came up with way back.
I did do a simple TUT for them here.  They seem to be a popular Pintrest pin.
They are heavy duty and work well. I used to not quilt them as much but found with the quilting they wash up well.
Tried to get a pic of the true colors but this is as good as it gets! There is a added surprise in the pocket.
Little extra is this coffee cup cozy! Used a Starbucks paper one as pattern.
SEW he is all set to use his new smoker grill!

We have pretty sunshine today!
Still cold but no horrid north wind like yesterday.
I need to go outside to spray baste a quilt.

Sadly the maid fairy has yet to show up so I must try to clean some as well.
Darn that sure can break up my sewing stride!!!


  1. What fun and wonderful accessories for the chef!

  2. Perfect gifts Lola! I love my potholders I got from you a while back, still get used almost daily and holding up great! I also made some from your pattern, they're genius!
