Kreative Kuts

As many of you know, I have been holding wood craft classes in my home for a few months. A lot of my crafts are my original designs and I have been working on getting the patterns on a website to sell. So, I am just starting, but I have put my Easter patterns up on a website. My website is Kreative Kuts!!! Right now I only have a few spring patterns up, so click on "SPRING" at the top of the site. The patterns are all E-patterns. You can purchase the pattern through Paypal and I will email the pattern to you. I also have the unfinished wood up for sale as well. If this is something you are interested in, check it out!!!

Scripture Bag

My daughter was baptized into our Church on Saturday. My husband and I gave her her first set of scriptures and a scripture tote. I picked one up at Seagull Book (a Utah based store) for $5. Here it is:
Cute color. Definitely girly, but lacking in personality I think. Using the fabric flower I did here (tutorial found here) with fabric in my stash and some ric rac I had on hand, her bag no longer lacks personality.
I also did the ric rac on the back.
Everything is sewn directly to the bag by hand. I was able to get it completely finished in just a couple of hours. (Less if you don't have to stop to get kids from school and feed them ;)

My vintage mom

I love my mom. She is a funny person. She saves everything... and I mean everything. She's not that old (she'll be 60 this year). But she loves old stuff.... like antiques and always has. This past weekend we went to see my mom and I was telling my boys that she has boxes of my old halloween costumes (yes, they are already starting to plan what they want to be for Halloween). So, we immediately starting getting out the Halloween boxes. We found an old bug costume, dracula cape, jack-o-lantern, etc. But then we found a box with shoes in it!!! It's a good thing my mom and I wear the same size. Now I have 3 new (old) pair of shoes that I get to wear and I love them!
I also raided her fabric and have plans for fabric flowers, zipper flowers, etc. Stay tuned....
