December 10 ~ A small bit of Christmas crafting

 
Over the past little while I have accomplished a small bit of crafting.  Yesterday I wanted to try a pattern I had seen for snow globe coasters.  They are made of felt and adorable but instead, I went for something simpler.  In my Christmas fabric stash, I found some snow globe fabric.   I had used the individual snow globes once on a sweatshirt for one of my daughters.  So I first tried making one of these into a coaster.  It came out cute, as you see above, but a little on the small side.

So I went a different route and made mug mats.  I was quite pleased with how they came out.

Sorry it is askew here.  I scanned these rather than taking pictures.
This one stayed a little straighter in the scanner.
A week or two ago I made some banners using old Christmas cards, paper crafting supplies and ribbon.  I will show only one of these for now, as my time is limited today, but later on I will tell more about the project, including a link to the pattern, and showing more pictures.
The others are pretty similar, and I think this one may have come out the best.

That's all the crafting news for now!

  1. Very cute mug rug, and I love your banner from Christmas cards! I can't wait to see how you made it. I have a stash of Christmas cards that I need to do *something* with - this looks like a fun thing to do with them.
