As Valentine Day approaches I have some quick and easy ideas to sew for giving. This sweet wristlet is a Kwik Sew Pattern that I made more fun by adding some machine embroidery. As it stores change or keys on your wrist it is great for the loved one who enjoys exercising or just going for long walks with the dog.
This one is an idea taken from a picture I found somewhere on line. Just take two men’s ties and sew them opposite points together for about 14 inches from the pointed ends. Fold in half and stich up right sides together for 7 inches each side. Turn RSO and tie narrow ends together and hang over your neck across body to hold your water bottle when walking.
This last one is a Luggage Tag from Baby Lock. I added some monograms and applique to brighten them up. They wrap around the handle of your suitcase and make it easy to identify on the airport carousel. Sewn out of felt or vellux with the addition of Velcro to fasten.
Don’t forget to register for the upcoming SEWING WITH KNITS WORKSHOP. Thursday January 28 from 10 to 1, I will be showing you all the tricks to sewing with knits.
