Happy Handmade Birthday

In efforts to practice and learn how to sew or other crafts, I am making handmade gifts for my girlfriends for their birthdays!  So far I have 2 down and they turned out really cute.

For my be-fri, Susan, I made a laptop sleeve using this tutorial.  It was pretty easy actually once I got going and I love how it turned out.  I used some of Amy Butler's new fabric which probably would make anything cute!  What do you think?  My mom gave it a good once over and besides my shoddy use of sticky velcro, she said my lines were really good!

For my friend Kelly I made a wooden sign for her that says:
"Home is where your story begins" and then their names and wedding date.  I really liked it, I hope she did too!

Now onto the March birthdays!  I better get busy!


  1. It looks fabulous! I love all your stuff!

  2. Yes Lisa!! I absolutely love the sign! I hung it up and look at it each day and smile:) thank you so much!
    Great job on all your crafts so far! You are so talented:)
