Years ago Farmer John asked me to make him an apron to wear while processing chickens. I made him 3. I’m sure he loves me for that. I chose to use feed sacks for the material for a few reasons. One reason being that I love the idea of repurposing material. Number two, they didn’t need to be fancy aprons – the chickens, nor Farmer
On my quest to find ways to use all the feed sacks, I came up with bags to grow herbs and greens. Making them is very similar to sewing the tote bag. The differences are size and no handles. This is a fairly easy sewing project. My biggest problem, as always, is using the feed sack as fabric. It is slippery and sometimes jams the
It’s no secret that I love Disney. Over the years I have acquired a few fun items. I never had a good place to display them.

Our 7th Day of December is featuring a do it yourself canvas painting. It is not the fanciest painting you ever did see, but it’s festive, fun and fairly simple to create. Have you seen those places where you get to drink wine with your girlfriends while creating a fabulous painting? I’ve always wanted to go. Unfortunately, I have not. I have especially wanted to
Each year I set up a photo booth area in our living room and leave it up throughout December. This year’s photo booth backdrop was super simple since I was reusing one I put together at the beginning of summer for a graduation party.
