"SEW" & Tell Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday! I think I missed "SEW" & Tell last Wednesday due working all week. I'm not used to that busy schedule. I finished up the Bunco gifts I was working on for Deanne so that's what I want to share with you today. They were some really fun gifts and I hope her bunco group enjoyed them. These were the four $7.00 prizes. I filled the hot pad with a fun cookies cookbook, a spatula, washcloth and the dish soap with an apron tied on it. We used the theme of kitchen and aprons. Most everything I got was either from Big Lots or the kitchen outlet store in St. George.

This was the $10.00 prize. I found this fun waffle muslin that is for making dish towels and cloths. I had spotted these on somebody's blog so I thought I'd give them a whirl. I bound them like you would a quilt. I also cut out circles of the fabric I used for one of the aprons and machine appliqued them on the dish towel. These turned out so cute. I need to make more of these right away (like today) for gifts. I put everything in an oven mitt for this prize.

This is just a close up of the binding and the appliqued circles.

This was the $15.00 gift. It was the craft apron I have made several of. It also had an oven mit and spatula to go with it.

This was the $20.00 prize. This cute little half apron and some cute utensils.

And this was the High Bunco. A full apron with the fun utensil to match. Wow what fun prizes to win. The fabric was so fun and cheerful to work with. I hope Deanne enjoyed her evening with friends knowing that things were all taken care of on this end of her party. Thanks for letting me help you out Deanne. Happy Sewing girl's, Shannon

Sew cute! I need to learn those dish towels, what a fun little present! said...

Alright. where is this bunco group? If these prizes are the type of prizes they always get- I need to be in. Actually, if I added another thing to my plate I think I just might keel over! Very cute items though. What fabric is that? It's very cute.

Thanks for making such adorable prizes for me. Everyone had such a good time and they loved them. You have no idea how much you helped me out. I think if I had one my thing to do right now, I might need a straight jacket! Your the best!
Love ya!
