Crafty Crafty

Sometimes I get project ideas in my head before I completely wake up in the morning. I'll be in the middle of a perfectly ridiculous dream and have the nagging urge to make finger puppets (or some other equally random thing). This morning it was a place mat. The very first thought in my mind was, "I have to make Bijou a place setting place mat." Why? Not sure. But before I could even get breakfast, I'd planned, traced, cut and sewn a very cute felt place mat for my Bijou. I'm still getting the hang of this whole sewing machine thing, but it's not bad for a first try. Besides, three year olds tend to not have a particularly critical eye. She thinks it's fabulous (despite what her facial expression may convey in the picture!).


  1. That looks wonderful! I love it!

  2. thanks. I'm still working on my sewing (with a machine) skills. So hopefully I'll have some neater projects to show soon.
