This week's challenge at The Pink Elephant is: (Insert direct copy and paste.....TADA, lol)
For Mom(Happy Mother's Day or Happy Birthday Mom)and/or Don't Throw That Away (Recycle, Reuse)you can submit 1 project (Mother's Day or Recycle) OR you can submit a project for both themes this week!!! Think of it as 2 chances to win!!
So I decided what better time to make a gift for my Mama!!! First I will show you my Recycled Project. I used a tin can (From Manwich ;), to create a pencil holder, or whatever else she wants to put in there. It came out really cute considering I made my own pattern!!
After: I sewed this cover......twice. The first one was to small to slip over the can, I didn't give myself enough wiggle room with the seam allowance >.< There is a liner inside the can too, which you can't see in the photo. In retrospect I prolly could've gotten the same result from simply using a hot glue gun .....but where's the fun in that?? I did use the glue gun to add the trim and ribbon ;)
I can't send Ma a gift and no card. Nope, nope, nope. (I hope you aren't viewing my blog mom, if you are....pretend you didn't see these lol). With that I have 2 chances to win!! :)
So happy together...(everybody sing!)
Thanks for looking!!!
