Come see what this Dad and his Princess have been up to.
You might get to see some of my sewing projects, as well as a tutorial here and there to help you out.
I might even work up to a few give aways along the way!
Hold on tight! This could be a bumpy ride!

Thrifty Fifty Update!

With extra days of work, holiday parties, Christmas tree trimming, and all the other things that go with the Holiday, I have tried to fit as much sewing into my busy days.
Leighanna wanted to do some crafting too. We took her school pictures and made these ornaments for her Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. I purchased this kit at a Craft wholesaler and paid only $3.00 for the kit. We could easily make another 7 ornaments with the extras.

Here is a handbag and matching wallet I made my wife. She has been begging for this for a long time, so I hope that she is pleased with the outcome!

I made Leighanna a rag quilt with her favorite colors of pink and green. I added a little yellow to it too to give it a little brightness. I have washed it 2 times, but I think I need to wash it one more time to encourage the fraying! I think she will love to snuggle up in this!

I used Kimberbell Kids personalized name pillow pattern to make these personalized pillows for my Mother in Law and Mom. I also made one for my niece.
Wow! Have I been busy!
We also made lots of cookies, candy, and other homemade goodies to give away to the bus driver, and the mailman.
I still have a list of things that I need to get accomplished. Hopefully I will have a few free minutes this week to get them done!

Wow wow wow, Tom! You have been a busy guy!!! Everything looks great! Angie is going to LOVE her new bag!

The crafts wholesaler doesn't happen to be Pat Catan's, does it? Oh how I miss that place!!!

No... it's called Crafts 2000. Lots, and I mean LOTS of crafts and goodies to get you into trouble with in that place! And, all at wholesale prices! Can't beat that!

I wish I could find something like that around here! I haven't found any bargain type places yet. I need to do some scoping out over the holidays.

Hi Tom! I wanted to let you know that Stephanie still loves the pillow you made her last year. She still sleeps with it. :)
