Monday SEW IN

>> Monday, December 7, 2009

Today I'm with my husband's grade 5 class making projects for their craft sale.




And more Potholders! I put together the tops so that it will go more quickly. (I hope!)

I've made up one sample potholder and one sample mitten ornament. ALL of the fabric was donated scraps from my Local Quilt Shop - Cindy Bee's. It's truly amazing what you can do with scraps.

I also pre-cut all the mitten ornament pieces. Here are the 16 right mittens.

And the 16 left mittens. Thank goodness I did a sample in time to realize I need one of each per ornament!:)

We'll also be using some foam precut ornaments. Here are 2 snowmen my daughter decorated. We're using fabric scraps to make the vests. We're also doing trees - I just didn't take a picture of it yet:)

I'll let you know how it goes. We're hoping the donated sewing machines will be there - and I've scrambled together some pins and thread. I'm making pincushions today for each child.

We're taking our children with us too. All I'm thinking about is what I'm going to eat and will the 2 year old have a nap!! Wish me luck!

Enjoy your Monday. See what everyone else has UP through Judy's link.


With Joy,

I'll bet you'll have a great time! I've helped a teacher friend make quilts with her class a couple of times. The kids were always great fun to be around.
