For the old lady in all of us...

I made this can opening grip from some extra fabric I had laying around. Yes, it's old lady, but who doesn't have trouble opening jars sometimes?

I used a fabric with rubber grips and just sewed it to a cotton scrap of fabric I had. Then I added bias to finish the edges. It was a quick project, but my sewing machine did not appreciate the rubber! Sewing with some tissue paper underneath the rubber fabric helped it feed through the machine properly.

When will the fur muff be back in style?

I've been wanting to make a fur muff for a long time, and I finally did! It's made out of artificial fox fur and has a little pocket inside. Too bad people don't wear these all the time!

Holiday Dress

This year's holiday dress! I cheated a little and used a pattern, but I love the end result. :)
