Getting Crafty with a Sewing Project

So last week as I was going through my reader, I read THIS idea via Michelle Wooderson's blog. You see, last week was Teacher Appreciation week at my son's school and us parents brought in little gifts each day of the week based on our teacher's likes. For the final sha-bang, we were to bring in something with their favorite colors. Needless to say, this little gem of a find on Michelle's blog was just what I needed to make this

What is it you ask? (And probably the same question the teachers asked when they received it, LOL!) This is actually a kitchen towel created from 5"x5" fabric scraps. The back is lined with terry cloth to at least be somewhat functional. The decor sewn to the front are those yummy yo-yo's I've been sewing up like crazy. This particular teacher's favorite color was orange. :)

I didn't get a pic of the other towel I made for Harrison's teacher, but her favorite colors were pink and teal...that was a super cute towel! But yeah...I went a little crazy buying the fabric. I need to make more! Anyone up for buying one of these adorable things? :) I topped them with a super cute tag using the From the Heart stamp set with coordinating Die. I swear, this set is PERFECT for all of your handmade gifts. I'm soooo happy to have it!!! I used the sewing machine from the set and colored in with totally cute, yes?!

Ok, off to fight a flu bug that is trying to attack my household. The little girl just got put on Tamiflu today and I'm hoping the Zicam actually works. Until next time!!

Beautiful Melissa! I love hand sewn projects. Fabric is another fave of mine.

I hope your little girl feels better soon! And I do believe in Zicam... it's not a cure, but it helps to get well sooner and keep the bug from getting worse.
