made {this week}

Just some projects I have been working on this week...
This first one is a table runner...but shorter...and it is made with a layer of the heat resistant backing (like you use for pot holders) so it can sit in the middle of the table (out of reach of chubby hands) and act as a hot pad. I saw one on a blog that I can't find at the moment...and made one for myself using a random pattern...I made three 10in squares and home decor weight fabric for the trim.  The other side is a yummy orange fabric for when I need a change of scenery. 

I love having it in the center of the table...though I am sitting at the table right now and can't see it because it is covered...
I finally got around to adding another layer to Aaron's hand print...
Each year I outline the boys hands...and add the bigger one under the previous years...I am a couple of months behind with hoho's. :) 
They are one of my favorite things...like people tree rings. :) 
This I love...for a friends new baby girl.  Can you guess her name?
And a nice big custom order...all finished up and ready to go out. :) 

Just a few of my projects this week...there are a few more but not photographed. :)

I'd love to see what you have been working on this week...leave a link. :) 


And happy fathers day to my doug.  my boys have the best father.  the best.  and we all love him dearly! :)
Pin It!

Great idea to add the heat resistant material! Someone recently posted their version of a table runner similar to yours. I don't remember where I saw hers, but she got the idea here - http://www.polkadotchair.com/2010/04/tuesday-tutorial-skinny-simple-table.html. My sewing machine, er, mom, is coming in a few weeks so I can make one too. :)

I love love the table runner!! Very cool. I was working on my umbrella at the beginning of the week http://beckywaldrop.blogspot.com/2010/06/ruffled-umbrella-for-200.html

For the last couple of days I've been working on some things so I can finally open up my Etsy shop. It should have enough stuff in it to fully open it up tonight!

ps...I heart your blog

I seriously LOVE the framed hands. I've had plans similar to this in my head for my little guys handprints, and it is awesome to see something that is totally my style, right here, nice and pretty, for me to look at. :)
