November's Favorite Thing(s)

Happy Thanksgiving, quilty friends! This month we showed some of our favorite things to make and give. This is a wonderful time of year to remember others and share our love and talents, and maybe a few fabric scraps. We are trying to include everything you could be interested in from today's class, but if we missed anything please comment below and we'll get on it.

My favorite thing to do with fabric is turning it into a quilt, and the buck pretty much stops there. I showed a pin board using an inexpensive painters canvas and covered in a fat quarter or vintage pillow case, as shown here.

Anna on the other hand, is very talented at sharing fabric love in different ways. She showed us scrunchies, fabric-wrapped bracelets, hand warmers, ric-rack flowers, covering trays or cookie sheets, monogrammed letters framed, and design boards. Her additional supplies were found at Hobby Lobby or the dollar store.

And then there's the ever creative Pamela, bringing us yo-yo's using Clover's Yo-Yo makers, and beautiful toy blocks from Caravan Shoppe

JoyLyn brought us many, many beautiful gift ideas for our grand finale.

Travel Accessory: Curling Iron/Flat Iron hot tool storage case.  No more waiting for your hair tools to cool down before you back your bag.  Just slip them into this heat proof case and off you go.
Here is the Link to the tutorial.

Closing out the Favorites are the Fleece Travel Pillow Link Here

Easy Chalkboard Wall Art  (Photo coming soon)  We have this awesome chalkboard fabric at the shop and making your word art is as simple as buying a frame and cutting the fabric to go in it. Voila you can write & erase to your hearts content! 

Next month remember to bring your Scrappy Trip Along if you've already made one, or come ready to learn a new, fun way to use your scraps. And it will be the last month to bring your exchange fabric, too. As always, thank you for bringing any show and tell and sharing a part of you with all of us.
