I made it to the Front Page of Etsy!

One of my new cross stitch creations made it to the front page last weekend. Rusy the Deer Badge has done wonders for my shop and renewed by desire in cross stitch. I added a little photos of what the front page group to the right.

Crayon Wallet Crafts

Many months ago I purchased a handful of playful Japanese fabric. They were all heavy linen blended cottons with bright images. I washed and prepped them for sewing and promptly couldn’t think of a think to make with them. They are great for button projects, hair bands, earring, bobby pins and similar items. Then I came a cross the craft phenomenon of the crayon wallet. Its rather a simple idea when you think about. Take a crayon roll and create a way to story a pad of paper with it. The result is a compact entertainment that is perfect for parents and kids. I purchased a wonderful pdf pattern from . I’ve made 5 so far. Aren’t they cute? My daughter will be receiving one as special present on an upcoming plane trip. I’ve added this item to my travel must have list with a reminder to bring extra note pads.
