Owl Sewing Box

Do you remember the lunch box I showed you the other day.034

I wanted to use the tutorial I was telling you about but I could not find it in my studio and the kids were on the computer so I just winged it. I added a little more and my head is spinning with other ideas for them. If you want to look at the tutorial it is at the Minick & Simpson blog.  I used a hot glue gun, because you know I like burning my hands (which I did – have a blister on my embroidering finger as I call it).

Anyway – I am so excited about this. Look how it turned out: 037 043

Heather from Keep it Thimble is someone I know from when I worked at the quilt store a while back. She had said she bought some lunch boxes from A.C. Moore for a buck each. Well, I had to go see what they had and I bought 4. They are plain and a little bit smaller but I have grand ideas for them, my husband is even giving me ideas –I love how he gets excited about my crafting.

The Fall Open House is at The Rusty Bucket this weekend starting on Friday. I took one more load up there.  Last night my husband wouldn’t let me come out of my studio until I finished up some projects and to make sure I stayed in he knows how to press my buttons. He challenged me to make something. He said he wanted me to make a candy corn man. So I made Mr. Candy Korn:025

My husband loves the little guy, he said it was exactly as he imagined him. My picture is not very good but look what he looks like in the store:

I made lots of cats. These came from seeing Junkyard Cat by Catnap Primitives.  She has some fantastic patterns.


This is just some little cat guy and a little candy corn and a ghost that resembles Patrick Star from Spongebob Squarepants.:

I put ornies in the little treat bags I had shown you before.


And I made 4 more pair of Witch Boots.

I also have realized I am allergic to Sweet Annie. Yes, not good since I use it in my crafts. But I will live, not the only thing I live with that I am allergic to.

Well  I am off.  I feel much better since I finished some things up and I am ready to start for the next event which will be October 23rd.  I was invited by a friend to join in a porch sale and I will provide more information later for you local gals.

Have fun stitching!!!

Thanks for posting the lunchbox tutorial! Also, I just got back from the Rusty Bucket and am the proud owner of a stitched pillow you made - the little trick or treating cat. I loved it when I saw it on your blog, and couldn't believe my luck when it was still there. You have some very cute things in the store and I can tell you they were selling like crazy!!!!

Hello Jennifer, Wow you have been a very busy stitcher creating all your fun primitive crafts! Love the Lunch box/sewing kits. You are so clever!! I am sure your craft event will be a huge success---all of your things are darling!

"Mister Candy Corn" little guy is adorable and sitting on the fall patchwork quilt is a perfect pose! I am sure he will be grabbed up fast! You better "warn" him on the day of the sale! Tee-hee!

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog---Lucinda's necklace is a small locket charm with hinges it even opens and you can put pictures inside....(although only very tiny ones!) She is working away on her little quilt and I think she is going to be a new partner in the sewing room....Oh my... I hope she doesn't take it over! I am sorta being silly, aren't I?

Hope you are having a wonderful day.

Hugs, Carolyn
