5 for 5 Challenge :: 1 Completed!

I've been waiting to post a photo of the handmade item I made until my first and only (so far) participant received it--so she'd be surprised.  Today, Rana @ Free to Learn an Lovin It, got the package.  I am so happy to know she likes it!  There's something about seeing my work on her blog--I'm rather proud of it.  You can check out her post about it here.  Here's a photo I took right after making it.  It's a nice and fun reusable bag.

Rana has asked me to put a tutorial together.  So, I'll plan do that when I start on my next one.

If you're interested in joining my 5 for 5 Challenge, I'd love the opportunity to share some other handmade creations with four others.  Click here to read about the requirements and leave a comment letting me know you wanna play along!

Happy Hand-making! :D

Thrift Store Finds

Yes, I did it again today.  It's been awhile and I've been itching to create/make/upcycle something!!!

Well, I found some lovely vintage pillow cases, several random good-sized pieces of fabric, and a curtain with a very cute pattern.  I'm seeing some reusable bags and a cute tote or two for the girls (out of the curtain).  We'll see.  I'm going to spread things out on my create table and see what comes to me.

Hope you're finding time to create, too, this summer!

5 for 5 Challenge :: UPDATE

Well, I've finally completed the item I've been wanting to my for my participant--Rana!  I'm so very excited about how it turned out.  I will be putting it into the mail today so won't share a photo just yet.  I've been finding time amidst all the packing to create and make.  My plan is to pack up my sewing items last--I girl has to be able to create on a moment's notice, right?

Hope that each of you are doing well and finding time to create.  Happy Tuesday!
