Quick Qifts #3

Quick Gift #3
The Fashionable Dishwasher

I just love these Gloves!  They are easy peasy to make!  I purchased the gloves from Giant. They have the 'cuff' already attached.  I added the jewel ring, ribbon tied into bow and glued the flower on top with fabric tac glue. 

You can purchase this glue in any craft store.  It was developed for the bridal industry as they used it to glue on pearls and trim. It is water proof and dries clear and flexible.  Love it! 

Quick Gift #2

Cake Pin Cushion
with Femo Clay Pins

I saw this darling pin cushion post on DIY Dish.  This was their first post and it is phenomenal.  I have been an ardent viewer since I saw the first episode!
This was soooooooo quick to make.  This is a gift for a sewing friend that loves VA Tech.  I used the two colors of VA tech fabric from my stash and made the pins out of femo clay.  So easy and quick and she loved it!

Quick Holiday Gifts

Over the next week I will be showing you 10 quick gifts to make for holiday giving.  These were given as gifts for girlfriends, hostesses, and teachers; just to name a few.

These are what I call gratitude boxes

 I purchased the box from Michael's in the $1 bin.  First I covered the top with pretty paper, then added decorations that I thought were appropriate for the recipient.  This is a box I gave to a sewing girlfriend.  As you can see there is a vintage spool of thread, bird and the little tag (came from the scrapbooking section of AC Moore) that says "girls just wanna to have fun!".

Before you give the box, have friends, family, students, etc, write on a piece of paper something the like, love, admire and so on about the person.  Place all of these  pieces of paper in the box and wallah you have a priceless gift that will keep on giving for years to come. 

I was given one of these, and when I need a little spiritual lift, I read what my friends said about me and I instantly feel better!

Happy gift giving,
Michele P
