Creative Gifts

I love shopping for new embroidery designs and sewing patterns.  It’s like being a kid in a candy store.  So many pretty things to look at and choose from.  I have more designs than I can possibly sew in my lifetime, but I still look for new, exciting designs that I think others would enjoy.  Usually I look for designs that can be used in more than one way, so they are not only cute, but useful and practical as well.

For instance, the microwaveable bowl holders can be used to protect your hands when handling hot items out of the microwave or cold items such as ice cream. They can also be used as a hot pad or a cute bowl to hold all kinds of little trinkets.  Imagine them with fruit on your kitchen counter, desk supplies on your desk, or holding sewing supplies by your sewing machine.
