With all these birthdays, I’ve been busy making a few little gifts. Last week was my friend Katie’s birthday. Here’s the Log Cabin potholder I made for her, using inspiration from the Log Cabin apron in Sew News April/May ’09.
Next up is my little sister Tess’ birthday. Tess will be turning the big 1-8 tomorrow (little tear). It seems like just yesterday she was playing dress-up, “borrowing” my makeup and generally annoying me. Seriously, though, I’m so proud of her. Here she is with a special strawberry birthday cupcake that was almost too pretty to eat:
I made this card for her using a recycled file folder and some fabric scraps. I embellished the front with some hand stitched flourishes in pink embroidery floss. I got the idea from the cool holiday cards featured in Sew Simple, Volume 11, which has lots of tips for sewing on paper.
Happy birthday, lil’ sis!
