Slow Saturday

On a recent trip to our local everything store, I came across the mother load (lol).  They were having a sale on all of their material including their fat quarters.  .89 for a fat quarter and I stocked up.  There were so many colors and paterns to choose from I almost bought the whole box, but the reasonable side of me decided to just buy about $10 worth so today will be a very crafty day as I decide what to do with all of this great material.  I will be posting some photos this evening of some finished projects. 

I have several things that I need to finish so who knows maybe today will be the day for those too, I guess we'll have to wait and see.

A few days ago I made some stuffed toys for my boys out of felt and some buttons I had laying around that hadn't found their way to the button drawers yet.  I enjoyed making them so much that I think I may start making more toys, they could be great presents and stocking stuffers.  Oh I'm so excited now I can't wait to get started.  I also discovered that using plastic backs as stuffing is a great way to recycle and save some money.  I just shredded it into smaller pieces to make it softer as I stuffed the toys and it also helped to clear out my bag closet, and no money spent on fiber-fil which is a big plus in my book!!!

I'll be back this evening to post some photos and share some cool tutorials with you!!
