Today's Sewing Project: Gifts for my nieces

Today I made crayon rolls for my nieces.  They were more time consuming, but I broke out the embroidery attachment and figured out how to use it. I put their names on each one.  Totally cute!   I'm very proud of myself.  Here a few pics.

  • Gosh, you make me want to learn how to sew! You need to start an Etsy shop! If I could do stuff like that, everyone would know what to expect from me for holiday gifts, haha!

    Those are awesome =)

    You girls are giving me ideas.  I don't have a lot of extra time during the school year, but I do over the summer and breaks.  I just might have to create one this summer.  I could definitely use a little extra over the summer when I don't get paid!  Thanks for the ideas.
  • Looks great you did a really good job. I love the fabric what are the fabric names?

    They came in a bundle of 4 flat quarters at hobby lobby.  I don't know the names.

  • those are too cute!!!!  wondering...  can you buy a embroidery attachment for any sewing machine?  or is it a special sewing machine?  I have one, but don't think it does embroidery...

    Mine came with the attachment.  Machines that embroider are usually much more expensive.   I got the Brother from Walmart for $379, most others are $700!  I really like it.  Before this I would just take thing up to a local seamstress and have it embroidered. 

  • Wow, those are REALLY cute, kyna!  Way to go!  They're going to love them, for sure!
