And as I'm sitting there, holding the tiniest Arcadia scraps that I have leftover in my hands, bang, the idea hits me. I have some leftover lavender in my cupboard, and never really knew what to do with it, so I thought, ah! Sachets! Everyone loves those, right? And you can never have too many! So I whipped these out. They came together super quickly and painlessly. They're not perfect, they're sort of all different sizes, and I made these out of my strikeoffs, so the fabrics not even perfect, but you know what? People are very grateful, and they don't care. People are just happy to know that you thought enough about them to make something.
So, what's the lesson today? Go out and make something for someone! Maybe for a mother, maybe for an Aunt or neighbor, or...really, anyone! You'll feel great for doing it, and they'll feel great receiving it.
|I love these two together. The print names are (left) Flutterfly and (right) Wheelsy Daisy. I think they look so sweet as a combo.|
|What did I say about different sizes? Hah. These are the boy and girl strikeoffs for Arcadia's Mushroom March.|
|The whole gang! Aren't they sweet just in a pile? I might keep a pile of these by my front door, incase I need to grab a quick gift as I'm heading out.|
|Fun note, I didn't fussy cut this. It just happened. This is Sunspot & Bee from Arcadia. It comes in two colorways, boy and girl.|
