A little weekend sewing.

We had a pretty slow weekend so I was able to get caught up on some custom orders and make Father’s Day gifts too! First up, I made some capes for my friends grandchildren. I love how they came out!!!! So stinkin’ cute. I hope she sends me pics of the kids wearing them!


For Father’s Day gifts, I made reusable coffee sleeves for my husband and father-in-law. I have to say, it’s really hard to find man-friendly fabric. For one I used scrap material left over from a bow-tie I made for one of the boys in our college group and for the other I cut up one of my husband’s old Quicksilver shirts that had gotten stained.  I think they look manly enough. Notice I said “reusable coffee sleeve” rather than “coffee cozy”…I think that man’s them up a bit too. Happy Father’s Day!


Thanks so mush to the gals over at Today's Creative Blog, The Creative Itch, and These Creative Juices for letting me link up!


  1. those capes are to cute! did you see is doing a dress up drive? It's to send to ill children. It's called tutu drive but they are accepting things for boys as well. I think I would like to send some capes, boys like to dress up too
