Tissue Holders

Here is my latest project - Cute little tissue holders!

Here is the online tutorial that I copied followed. The basic pattern size for "Puffs to Go" tissues is 6 1/2 x 9. For the travel sized Kleenex it is 6 1/2 x 7. I could only find "Puffs to Go" at Target, so I think I'll be sticking to the Kleenex sized holders. I still have to make the cute little zipper bags that these go in, but I haven't gotten that far yet!

Crayon Rolls

Here are the CUTE crayon rolls that I've finally finished!! I just think they are the coolest thing around. They are easy to make too. They fit a 16 pack of crayons (which I bought for .25 cents each at Wal-mart). Here's the online tutorial that I followed to make these. It took me about an hour to make each one of them. Not too bad until I decided to make 39 of them...

Pink and purple for the girls.

Big boys got dinosaurs!

Animals for the little boys.

Thomas the Tank Engine for my nephew.

The crayon rolls even hold an 8 pack of "Big" Crayons placed in every other pocket (for the smaller artists).

Cool Tools

These are the coolest bobbin holders, called the "BobbinSaver". I couldn't find any stores locally who had these, so I bought mine on ebay.
