Something about me that you may not know is that I love arts and crafts. I've tried my hand at knitting, sewing, and cross stitching, among other things. I'm also pretty handy with a hot glue gun. I find it very fulfilling to use my hands and mind to create something. I seem to always have several projects going at once, including a bright pink scarf I am currently knitting.
Yesterday and today I spent the better part of my day working on a project to sew a cowl capelet. (It would have taken less time than that if my sewing machine hadn't died halfway through!) I love the way this turned out, except I wish I had made it a size larger so I would have had more to snuggle up in! I might just make another one; it was so inexpensive! I bought my fleece on sale at Hobby Lobby for around $7.50 total. The little leopard print/brown flower was also purchased at Hobby Lobby in the hat section for $3.99. It can be used as a pin or a hair clip! I just pinned it on here for some more pizzazz.
If you like to sew, you should really check out Angel's site at http://www.fleecefun.com. She has lots of awesome, easy to follow, free patterns that are beautiful.
