Felt coasters

Here we have two sets of coasters made from felt. I cut out squares, and then trimmed the edges with pinking shears. I sewed around each one of the butterflies and flowers with my sewing machine, which was the most tedious part, since the corners are so small - I was picking the presser foot up after almost every stitch. I then layered green, then pink, then green, then pink in a stack. So each of the two sets you see has four coasters. They are finalized with velvet ribon on the top, which the one in the left corner of the photo, I slid through a rhinestone buckle, the one on the right is a pearl buckle. The lower ribbon is slid through little pearl heart buckles. These will be given as gifts to family.
By the way stop over at my animation blog to watch & comment on 2 of my new animations!
Below, a picture I found from last year. Hugs.

Cotton Cameo

This is a two sided fabric cameo, stuffed with puff and hung on a chain. It's about two inches tall so I really had to watch my fingers and move slowly while sewing the edges closed. One nice thing about it is that when you are moving around it never hurts upon impact, it's very comfortable.

Address Labels

What you see here is one complete set of address labels I made on my computer. I made them in two rows of four so that they could be printed out on a sheet of adhesive paper and then cut out into the eight labels that you see. Then I put them inside the right bottom corner envelope and tied with a very thin and very light pink gingham ribbon. Sweet Sunday to you.
