These elf shoes were made with great enthusiasm due to the fact that the girls would be putting bells on the toes....One of my girls (9 years old) hosted a whole dinner party for her family, complete with an elf hat and apron to go with her elf shoes. She made the menu, sent invitations and gave gifts to complete the whole elf theme. I would've loved to have been there.
Don't you wish you had a pair? I was actually the winner of a book called Sew Fun: 20 projects for the whole family by Debora Fisher. Venessa Vargas at The Crafty Gemini hosted the giveaway. We have alot of fun making projects from this book.
Here I have just been playing around with some spirograph quilting with a ruler along side my presser foot.
I marked it first and then just went from dot # 1 on one leg of the triangle to dot # 1 on the opposite leg, and just kept going around......The only reason I quit is because I ran out of bobbin thread. It would be pretty neat when finished, and/or in any other shape.
Now the last thing I have to show you is
a panel that I have been embellishing
with french knots and things to make the
flowers on the rocks come alive. Let me tell you
now, I am not an artist but as I made these changes
I couldn't believe how life-like they became.
I have the rest of this panel of ships and seafoam fabrics to with the Lighthouse and I just can't wait to get this quilt or wall hanging, I haven't decided which, finished because I can add alot more
with my quilting.
