Small Projects

Good morning,

I didn't get anything posted last month for the small projects month with crazymomquilts but I did get 5 rice bags done last month. I made 4 for Mother's Day gifts and one for myself. I keep mine in the freezer and use it on my neck every night. I love it. I got the pattern here.

They were so easy to make that I am going to make more for gifts plus I need another one for the microwave. I used Lavender for the scent and the smell is wonderful. The bag that I made for myself , I didn't use the Velcro closure on the cover, I made an envelope back instead. I think I like that better for microwave use. I am also going to make one with beans instead of rice for the freezer to see if it will hold the cold longer.

My newest projects that I am working on this week are a pillow cover for a body pillow and a small embroidered pillow. These will be anniversary presents for my daughter and daughter-n-law. I got the pattern and idea here. Here is a picture. I thought it would go great with the quilts I have made for them. :)

The embroidery I am having done by In Stitches here in Marshalltown. I took in 2 large pieces of white muslin and they are embroidering each family's last name in black on each piece of muslin.They should be ready by Friday and then I will make pillow covers out of them to fit a 12x16 pillow form.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

PS. I did get the pillow cover and small pillow made in time for my daughters 5 year wedding anniversary and she loved it. Now to get the one done for my daughter in law. Hope your having a great week
