Conference/Easter Weekend Projects

I procrastinated getting Easter baskets made this year, so on Saturday, I ended up having to whip out 4 baskets.  And since I trashed my house with sewing stuff, I decided it was a good time to make my mom a rice pack and make me some dinner napkins.

Tutorial found HERE
I used up a bunch of my scrap fabric.  Every side is a different fabric since I didn't have enough of one kind for the entire basket. I like it better, anyways. I had some extra birds, so I stuck them on the kids' baskets. Tim, of course, chose difficult upholstery fabric for his.

Tutorial found HERE
I made myself one a couple of years ago. My mom is always cold, so I made her one, put some cloves in it so it wouldn't smell so strongly of rice, loved it so much, I remade myself one and put cloves and cinnamon in it. Yum.

I've been wanting to make a set of linen dinner napkins (the napkins are 20" big) for a while now and finally got around to doing it.  I'm trying to figure out if I want to hand-embroider something in the corner.  I sure love mitered corners. They're so crisp and clean looking.

You are so talented! You make it sounds so easy...just whipping them out. Love the baskets and I could sure use some napkins like that, however I am not so talented.
