A NEW SEWING PROJECT

I think I might’ve found a new sewing project … super cute (and washable) placements! A small silent auction for charity was set up at work recently, and I wrote down a few bids on various items (game of Farkle, a Scentsy holder and wax). In the end, I won two sets of holiday placements because I know the perfect person who would love them.

Before my bid, I took a closer look at the placements and realized I could probably make my own placements. The flower and heart placements require a bit more effort, sewing a flower and heart on the front before pinning and sewing two pieces of fabric and light batting. The Halloween placements are more my speed – pick a front design and a second piece of fabric.

I really wanted to place a bid on the nostalgic Campbell’s Soup ceramic tureens, but forced myself to step back and walk away. As much as I love the idea of the ceramic dishes, what in the world would I do with them? Use them for decoration and collect dust? My kitchen already holds too many pots, pans, dishes, glasses, mugs, etc. – it doesn’t need more no matter how cute the dishes may be.
