I Spy Bags

I saw a pattern for I Spy bags and thought the idea was great.  I’ve since made 4 and I plan on making more.



First you’ll start gathering various little objects around the house and outside.  My I Spy bags have Q-Tips, buttons, candles, balloons, pom poms, rocks, twigs… you get the idea.  List every item on a piece of paper and laminate the sheet.  The object is to find all of the items you’ve hidden in the bag.  Awesome game for kids.  Want to make one?  Here's how.

Bath Towel Redo

Don’t you hate when then the edges of  perfectly good towels completely fall apart?

They make a mess in the wash…threads everywhere and tangled on everything.  I have 2 like this and I decided to do a little fix up.

First, cut the frayed edges right off.


Next, cut 2 4x45 in strips of a matching (I chose fabric from Anna Maria Horner’s  Good Folks collection)  fabric and make a binding.

Lastly, sew the binding to each end of your towel and enjoy.

3 More Finished Blocks

AAHHHHH.  3 more blocks done in the jelly roll quilt along.




I’ve lost track but I think there are 5 more to go.  It’s starting to grow on me.  I’ll post a photo album when they are all done.
