friday fun finds: a fabulous week to sew

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

It’s been hot in Denver.  And we don’t have an air conditioner (most houses in Denver don’t).  However, my sewing machine is in our basement, which stays around 70 degrees year round.  So this week, I’ve been looking for excuses to go down there and sew.  Here are a few projects from last week that would be perfect for a week like this one:

Burke loves monsters, and I can’t get enough of those stripes (at handmade con amor).

I ADORE this pillowcase dress by Potholes and Pantyhose… perhaps when I lose the basketball shaped belly, I will whip one of these up.  Lovely, right?

These little wristlets at Junst Another Hang Up are too cute!  Love them!

Not only are these cloth napkins by Hippos and Dinosaurs darling (love those fabulous trimmed edges), the idea of using family time to create useable, useful items is right up my alley.

Here’s your featured button, creative friends:


Now, onto this week’s party- we’d love it if you’d link up your latest and greatest Friday Fun Find- something you made, a tutorial you put together (or tried out!), a product the rest of us need, a scrumptious recipe- whatever you’re loving this week!

A few guidelines:
1. Include a short description of what you’re linking to (as well as the name of your blog if you want).  That way people can go see the fun finds that interest them most.
2. Link to your specific post, and not to the main page of your blog.
3. Here’s the party button if you want to link back to this party from you blog.

  1. I love the stuffed monster…I keep wanting to make one but I'm a little to old to keep one laying around. Ha!

    It's been a while since I linked up and I missed it! Thanks for hosting!

  2. Thanks so much for featuring my Vintage Pillow Case Dress! I really appreciate it. I don't want to split hairs, but my site is Potholes and Pantyhose-not Arts & Crap. I have a page called Arts & Crap, however….If you want to change the name, that's great. But no big deal at all.
    Thanks again!

  3. Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog "Lilly Cakes" and for inviting me to link my initial art on your blog. I am so happy you like it!
