Hello Treasure for Tots Readers! I am so excited to be blog swapping with Angie today... she had the CUTEST stuff for little ones- right!?!
Let me introduce myself!
I am Fawnda from Fireflies and Jellybeans a little DIY blog that I co-author with my best friend Jeannine.
A place mat
A water soluble pencil
Sewing machine (with sewing tools such as scissors, thread, pins etc...)
2.) sew a 1 to 1 1/2 inch seam on the folder side of the corner. You are making a casing for your ribbon. Repeat on the other corner
3.) Flip the place mat over to the RIGHT side and fold up the bottom edge about 4 inches and pin. (I sewed ribbon on the bottom edge -the back side so that when I folded it up you could see it)
4.) With a water soluble pencil (or something washable) make vertical lines at 2 inches, 4 inches, 8 inches and 10 inches. This is to make our pocket with little slots to hold our utensils. (click on the picture to see it better.)
5.) Top sew your pocket on the edges and on the lines that you marked.
Want to make some Cookies to go along with it?
Here is what you will need:
Felt (cream, light brown, dark brown, pink and red)
Needle and thread
Sewing machine (optional)
1.) Cut your felt. Cut the cookie shapes (the great thing about most cookies is that they are not perfectly round!) You need 2 pieces for the cookie. The frosting is just a waving blob - you only need one piece for that. and the chocolate chips are just little rectangles.
2.) Hand sew on the chips and the frosting to one side of your cookie.
3.) Place cookie pieces RIGHT sides together and sew around the edge leaving a 1-2 inch opening to turn right-side-out and stuff.
4.) Flip your cookie right-side-out and stuff and top sew the opening closed.
It would be SUPER cute to cut your cookies in heart shapes for Valentines day!
