Latest sewing projects

My latest sewing projects. I made 4 of these darling brown with pink sun tops. Cute

And next is a long over due birthday gift for a friend. It is a tote bag that was so easy to make. And actually I have enough of the material left over that I am thinking of making her another one just a smidge shorter to go with and maybe put a pocket on that one. The fabric is beautiful. Upholstery weight with small pink and blue thru out, an embroidered look. UPDATE: I did make a second one, about 5 inches shorter and put a pocket on one side. :) I think that makes it a nicer gift - as a set of tote/market bags.

How to Make Your Own Scented Rocks

Place rocks in a bowl or dish to scent a room. A nice alternative to potpourri!
1/2 cup plain flour 1/2 cup salt 1/4 teaspoon essential oil (your favorite scent) 2/3 cups boiling water Food coloring, if desired In bowl, mix dry ingredients well. Add essential oil, and boiling water to dry ingredients. (Scent will be strong, but will fade slightly when dry.) For colored stones, blend in food coloring, one drop at a time until desired shade is reached. Blend ingredients, and form balls into different shape and sizes to look like stones. Allow stones to dry.
