After I turned my daughters pajama pants into shorts, I wondered what I could do with the leg fabric that I had cut off. Well, my preschoolers have a grocery tote bag that they like to play with and we've wanted to get more so they wouldn't have to share. Problem solved! I simply turned it inside out and sewed one opening shut. For the handle, I just cut a long enough strip to add to the top and folded one side into the center, folded over the other side on top like a brochure and then pinned it and sewed it. I then sewed it into the top sides of the bag and voila! A grocery tote bag!

I've been so busy and it seems like Christmas has snuck up on me! I have managed to make only two things the last couple of weeks...two ornaments. The first is an ornament of about 1/4 inch with the center spiral that is a 1/2 inch. I then sprayed it with a glaze coating. I love the sturdiness of it.
The next ornament I made for a sweet friend who had twin boys. There is pulled out cotton in the background and then the two quilled babies in front. On the tag in the front is their names and birthdate. Of course this ornament doesn't come apart,so it was quite the challenge to place and put everything in. Hope you like it!
