Promotional Bunting

With one of my other endeavours, The Westside’s Story, I hosted a Day Camp Fair a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for something really dynamic to go in the window as promotion for the event.

This is so easy, and can be used for a myriad of occasions, including birthdays, celebrations, and personal declarations for Valentine’s Day (e.g. I LOVE [lover’s name here] displayed prominently in your front window to embarrass your spouse)!

Sleeves to Fingerless Gloves

Digging through my mound of sewing material and clothing the other day, I found some baby pjs that, I guess, I had planned to mend when my kids were tiny. Oops!

For my son’s game-themed birthday this year, I decided to roll the dice and create this pinata.
