The First Painted Shirt

So the title is not technically accurate!  My oldest painted her design on a piece of cotton and we then appliqued it to the sweatshirt.  She is very excited about the way it turned out and I am so proud of her!  I'm going to have to see if I can get a better detail shot later.

Stitch Craft Create

I picked up the premier issue of the new magazine Stitch Craft Create. I have been following them on FB and twitter for a couple of months and waiting until I could pick this up. I was not disappointed at all! It is beautiful with craft ideas that are suitable for beginners and experts. I also love that they have projects and downloadables on their website. One of the projects is a fabric coffee cozy. I love to make felt coffee cozies so I had to try this one too! I modified mine to use 2 vintage buttons so that the cozy is truly reversible. I need to tweak my construction process a bit but otherwise, I am very pleased!

And then the other side...

Thank you Stitch Craft and Create!  I'm looking forward to watching you grow!
