It has been a mad house of sewing, baking, concerts and class parties over here. Makes me wonder how I ever thought I would get back here before the months end but here I am! First up, the pictures of the money cuffs made for Yasmeen's guests at the party last month. I believe it was nearly two weeks ago when I promised to post these "tomorrow" well never mind the tardiness, here they are:
the monograms were done freehand with the satin stitch
handy zippered pocket to put your $$$ in
and a cute little 15 month old to model them for you...funny thing is that she put these on herself while I was busy, oh, I have a lot of fun to look forward to with this busy girl!
Remember that these were not my idea, I first saw them here and then followed that link to this tutorial.. The tutorial was great. I added the piece of fabric with the monograms because I wasn't happy with the visible stitching after adding Velcro. Also, I wanted to add more of the pink (Yasmeen picked the pink for the inside and I thought it was better out. So we compromised and she loved them.
Now this morning I am trying to fit in a couple hours of work out side of the home before I finish making the rest of my Christmas gifts and yes, I am way behind but still hopeful ; ) I am hoping that I can come back and post late tonight when I have gotten some more done. I would love to show pics of the wonderful rosettes I've been working on and the car rolls that I have made. I still have 3 skirts and few other odds and ends to complete before Christmas so off of this computer I am getting now!
