Owls & Whales {handmade wares}


Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend:) We had great weather here on the Coast of NC & the hub, pups and I spent most of the time outside. Saturday was a day for walking and errands and Sunday I spend the day at my parents beach and antique shopping with my mom. Got a cute bedside table for only $35! I love great finds like that.

Today I ventured into applique and softies. Ummmm....hello? Applique is so fun! And the softies are so cute! Definitely a great benefit of my large machine upgrade. I did sets of one pillow and one softie - I think this would be a lovely grouping for nurseries and playrooms. Here's some (not great) pictures:

And every bit of fabric used in these two projects is repurposed from my grandmother's stash! all vintage:)

These are completely adorable!

I came over from Sew Chatty to see these. Love the colors and that the fabric is VINTAGE!

Noticed that you lived on the NC coast! I just returned from there and my last two posts are about things I found there and made about places there! Although, I was in the Wilmington area, and that could be far from where you live! :)

Love all your cute projects! I took a look around before commenting here, and I'm about to go hit that follow button! :)
