Last week on New Year's Day - I treated myself to a trip to Goodwill! I had in mind that I was looking for some new fabric and, while I haven't had much success finding good fabric yardage at a thrift store - I love to look through the sheets, tablecloths, curtains and pillowcases for options! I was NOT disappointed!
I came home with an old curtain, XL twin sheet and two pillowcases and have been doing lots of sewing since! I'll be showing you some more things I've made tomorrow - but here is one project that is SO easy and turns out really cute. It is also super quick!
I found this tutorial browsing Sew Mama Sew for little travel size Kleenex keepers for our purse! I did change one thing from the tutorial, which was sewing the six inch sides right sides together and pressing before continuing. I didn't like the idea of raw edges on the finished product.
I have made a bunch of these and put together these little "Day at the Hospital Survival Kits" to give to the nurses when our baby is born. It includes a homemade Kleenex Keeper, granola bar, pen, paper, mints, and I'm going to include a note with two quarters taped on for the drink or snack machine. All of this is in a little reusable Ziploc container - I got these free recently.
Yes, this is thinking WAY ahead - but wouldn't these make great stocking stuffers?!
