I also got all of my mug rugs finished and started on the Christmas hot pads for my craft fair. I have 6 done and 6 more to go. They are super quick, though, so they will for sure be done this morning. So far, I have my microwave bowl cozies (21 in each size), 22 mug rugs, a set of 4 Christmas ornament placemats with napkins and soon-to-be 12 hot pads to sell at my craft fair. I also have 20 key fobs started, that I hope to be able to personalize on site. The craft fair is 4 weeks from tomorrow so I think I'm making good progress!
I had 2 bee blocks to make this month and I got both of them done this week. One is a pinwheel star and the other is a hexagon called Spin Wheel. It is supposed to have a pinwheel in the center but I chose fabrics that aren't very contrasting so my pinwheel is sort of hidden. Once I got it done, I was worried that it blended too much but the queen for that hive really likes that the pinwheel is hard to find so that worked out!
This weekend I need to finish my son's Halloween costume. He is going to be a monkey but I refused to pay $50-$60 for a costume. So I bought him a fleece hoodie and some fleece pants on sale at Kohl's, a 6-ft chenille stem to wrap around his waist for a tail and I'm going to sew on a felt tummy and make felt ears to attach to a headband. Easy peasy and around $20! Plus, he can continue to wear the pants and the hoodie after Halloween. Here he is without the tummy and the ears. I think he'll be a pretty cute monkey! :)
I'm linking up today to Crazy Mom Quilts' finish it up Friday and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
Have a sew crafty weekend!
