I must admit, Monday was an incredibly lazy day. I just looked at lots of fabulous crafty blogs, getting ideas and just enjoying the blog eyecandy. But Tuesday, I got crackin'. For Him: I finally made my husbands birthday present (it was almost a month ago). I used this great tutorial from Smashed Peas and Carrots.
He didn't want anything obvious or flashy. I had a hard time picking out fabric because the ones I thought were good were to "loud" for him. So we went with a plain 'ol blue. Don't get me wrong. I like blue. My house "theme" colors are blue and green. But it was so plain. So I put some polka dots in the lining and as the handle.
For Her: I decided to finally make myself a coffee cozy.
I used a tutorial from House on Hill Road.
The fabric is Owl Little Owls by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures (I got it from fabric.com).
And For the House, I made a Springtime Wreath.
I used a round styrofoam form and hot glued moss all the way around it. I couldn't find a natural looking nest with eggs, but I found a cute little basket nest with eggs in it, cut the handles off and hot glued it to the wreath. I found a pretty bouquet from Michael's for cheap and cut the flowers off the stems and hot glued those around the nest and a few near the top. I love my Birdy wreath hanger that I found at Pier 1, so no ribbon was necessary!
I'm linkin' for the first time.
