These zippered wristlets look simple enough, but they have a zipper on them for goodness sake! I am not sure I have ever sewn a zipper before! Well, it was about time already, so here it is! I made these for Ella and Sarah and filled them with fun girly things.
I also made these Elephants from the Patchwork + Quilted Gifts book I have posted about before:I am absolutely in love with these and really wanted to keep these for myself! They were a lot easier than I thought they would be and I really got them done faster than I thought I would too. It took me as long to sew them up as it did to stuff them and hand sew them up and hand sew on the ears, blankets, and eyes. Then for some reason, I thought the blue and purple one looked like he would be a well-worn elephant and added some hand embroidery on a few of the seems as if he had been loved and patched and loved some more. Anyway, these are for Rachel and Lily. I had so much fun, and I am so shocked with what I can do when I just try it!
