This little hanging towel is adorable! It was published in the Crafts ‘n Things Online Newsletter, October 2010. If you have a tea-towel, cut it in half and make two of these! This particular towel has my Stitchin’ Up the Pieces buttons featured in the middle.
If you are interested in a set, please go to www.buttondrawer.com and see if they still have some available, as they are no longer in production. Although, I still have a few pieces that may work. So, just contact me by going to my website www.deniseclason.com and let me now what colors you are looking for!
This cute little wallhanging is a favorite for those who have a seaside retreat! Bring the Ocean inside and relax! This wallhanging was published in Crafts ‘n Things August 2010 issue. Applique’ patterns are also available, which make this wallhanging easy to do! Fusible webbing is used to adhere the icons onto the wallhanging and appliqued with matching threads. The lighthouse is a rendering of an actual lighthouse on the North-Eastern coast!
This is the most adorable apron, featuring 6 pockets ready to hold anything! It is shown as a garden apron, but can easily be used for other adaptations! Published in Crafts ‘n Things June 2010 issue! Chose some beautiful prints that contrast well to show off the waistband, pockets and ties! So much fun and easy to make!
Here is another project that I had so much fun creating! With a mixture of machine and hand quilting, this pillow will be a favorite! I love buttons and wanted to add a punch of color in the plain border with 1/4″ blue buttons. The binding is a mix of two prints to add interest! 18″ pillow published in Create and Decorate October 2010 issue. THE best thing about this pillow is that it has a zipper so that you can change the pillow out with seasonal prints!!! Remake the same pillow with different prints for all seasons! Zipper application is VERY easy!!
What a fun and easy project! These cute little quilted gingerbread men are joined with fabric bows, pine cones and lights make this the perfect garland decoration for any mantel! It’s hard to tell but, I used gold spray paint to add sparkle to the pine needles and pine cones! The face and buttons on the little men are done with puff paint! so easy! Published in Create and Decorate Magazine, December 2010 issue.
If you LOVE tote bags, you’ll love this quick and easy Christmas tote! Make it up with your favorite Christmas prints and adorn with silk flowers!
