Treat bags for the doc's office


I made these Halloween bags a few weeks ago. Just needed to line them and fill them. Two went to my doc's office and hubby took one to his office.


I added a bunch of reversible headbands plus lots of candy and gum to keep everyone happy (at least for a little while).

What's old is new again...

When my kids outgrow or just don't want their old clothes anymore I hate to just toss them. Sometimes I will take them up to Goodwill or pass them on to someone else. Before school started, we purged their closets and dressers of things that didn't fit or they would never wear again. Now that I have started sewing, I thought these would be perfect to use for our grandson Jacob. I used t-shirts, sweatshirts, and jeans. I turned them into jammies, sweatpants, jeans, and lounge pants. I also made some pants from purchased material. It's a great way to practice making things and to try out new ideas or stitches. If they aren't perfect, Jacob (1) won't complain! He outgrows everything so fast anyways...
