I know I promised my handmade gifts for men, but you'll have to give me an extra day or two. Let's just say my plans are simple in theory, but not so simple when it comes to getting them made. One involves beer and the other involves big magnets. I spent way too much time swearing in my sewing room yesterday trying to figure them out. Hopefully I can do it though, because if I do they should be very cool!
In the meantime, I'll share a gift for one of the guys in my life-- a simple microwaveable heating pad. It measures 12" by 8" and has a divided muslin liner filled with rice. I used denim and a brown herringbone fabric from Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow line to keep it masculine. I might do a few more of these, because everyone could use some extra warmth every once in awhile! (And I just may have purchased a 25 pound bag of long grain rice at Costco that needs to get used.) I can share my instructions if you're interested, but there are tons of tutorials for these all over the web already as well!
And here's a sneak peek of a couple of other things I'm working on.
Back to it!
