There are moments when I'm so glad I'm not a hockey mom. I don't have anything against hockey, but if given the choice between sitting in an ice cold arena or crafting at home with my kids, the choice is an easy one! I know how I'd rather spend my time.
So on that note, here are a few things that daughter S has created lately, with just a little guidance from me:
A purse/bag for a friend for Christmas made out of old jeans and other scraps. She designed the bag and the tree design. This applique held some "learning experiences" before she agreed to try fusing the pieces first rather than just pinning.
After the above purse project, this leafless tree applique (also her own design) went really smoothly. She's already learning to modify patterns, as this one was originally for a zippered hoodie. The applique was fused first with Steam-a-Seam, and then machine blanket stitched around the edges.
