misc doings

Here are a few miscellaneous things I've made in the last few months and weeks.

These are oven mitts. I love them! These are a great and easy gift idea!

In the fall we did quite a bit of camping with the boys. I made them matching camping pillowcase. They adore them and will hardly let me take them off their pillows long enough to wash them. I LOVE making these pillowcases. They whip up so fast and they turn out so professional!

A beautiful patchwork stocking. This was a lot of fun to make and a great use of scraps.


  1. I want to make just some regular hotpads, but I'm never sure what to put inside them. I'd love a quickie tutorial...hint, hint...

    1. You can use Insul Brite. Found in the interfacing section at fabric store.

  2. Love the Heart Hotpads too! Would you happen to have a link to a pattern or tutorial? Would love to try them ~ thanks for any help!


  3. Love the heart hotpads, would loveeee a quick tutorial!

  4. ditto the others--would love a tutorial or link to one for the hot pads.

  5. Likewise - would love a tutorial or instructions on the hot pads.

  6. Tutorial for heart hot pads PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I would also link a link. They would make great christmas gifts!

  8. Love the Oven mitts and the Stocking with the curly toes . Great job

  9. I think I have a crush on your heart hotpads!

  10. Heart hot pad tutorial please!!!!

  11. Lovely works! I love de hotholders.

  12. I saw the heart shaped oven mitts on Pinterest and would love to make them. Do you have a tutorial about them? I would love to make these for Christmas gifts.

    The above link is the tutorial!

  14. I am going to teach a class on making those oven mitts. I like how yours turned out better than the martha stewart ones. You didn't use bias tape I see. How did you do the fabric inside on the rim of the heart opening?

  15. Really want to make the heart shaped oven mitts. Pattern/tutorial, please?!

  16. I love these oven mitts!!! Could you please share your pattern/tutorial?? Thank you!

  17. Is there a tutorial for the heart-shaped mitts?

  18. obviously there is'nt one. what a pity! they are very cute.

  19. She gave the link above in the comment section,it is from Martha Stewart, Read comments again.It is posted by Chystal,the 14 th one down from the top. Says to print template at 200%,which I found too small for family use,so I made mine larger,adorable project!

  20. My daughter pinned the heart potholders on Pintrest and I love it!!! If you have a pattern or as others have said, a tutorial, it would be sooooo appreceiated!!! Love your stuff!!!!

  21. The link referred to is not for these heart-shaped pot holders. I made the Martha Steward ones, would really like the pattern for Jenn's. She may have tweaked Martha's, but there are differences...

  22. That should say "Stewart."

  23. Please Please, need a tutorial on your heart oven mitts! They are so fun!

    prepare. Our Wordpress Minecraft Theme is exceedingly easy to
    use (if you already have simply no web programming experience) and
    customizable within 5 mintures.
