I've had a stack of 5 x 7 mat board rectangles sitting around for awhile, salvaged from a frame shop. I knew they would be great for some sort of project, to I've been hanging on to them. This weekend I came up with a cute project and finally put a few pieces to use!
I whipped up an instant collection of quotes that would make a really cute display!
I like to collect interesting quotes in my sketchbook, so it was great to use some in a project!

My new business card holder from andreacreates kind of matches my snack... delicious! I love the way she combines fabrics... always so pretty : )
I sewed this fabric folder/organizer to corral all of my little papers... planner, notebook, sketchbook, scraps of paper with scribbled notes, my beloved sharpie pen... all my stuff. It was simple to make and works like a charm!
The fabric is from a vintage sheet, I've used pieces of it in quite a few projects! I estimated the proper size, cut my fabric and a layer of cotton batting, and sewed the layers together. Then I folded over the short sides to make pockets.
A leftover piece of seam binding tape makes a perfect tie...

I've been doing some itty-bitty crochet today! Little flowers to be specific. What do you think?
I so enjoy doing custom orders on Etsy, I've been trying to come up with more easy options for people to choose their own color combinations! I'm going to make some with hearts, too... let's face it, I'm just really addicted to crochet! : )

This weekend I finished writing up a new knitting pattern for an ice cream cozy (vegan Tofutti ice cream, of course)! It fits a pint sized container perfectly!
