Army hats

Travis needed me to to see these patches on his hats. I was so excited but it was a lot of pressure to get it right. I was glad it worked out. 

Pin cushion

My son made this little pot forme for Mother's Day. When the flower died I had no use for a tiny pot until I thought of a pin cushion. I filled the bottom with lentils and then made a fabric yo-yo and filled it with stuffing. Then before hot glueing it down along the rim I added a sliver of a bar of soap to keep the pins fresh to slip through the fabric. Last I wrapped the edge with jute and added the pins.

I made these bookmarks (idea from bookmarks for the lesson I taught in relief society for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love how they turned out so easy and quick!

Mil bday gift
