Make Something Monday #9

Make Something Monday


This week's craft was a real quickie. Paul asked me to send off some stained glass cupcakes he sold as a custom order in his Etsy shop. Since they needed to have some kind of padding around them, I just decided to sew little pouches for them. I took a sheet of felt and some fleece lining and sewed them up really quickly on my serger. I sandwiched the two pieces together, finished the top edge by serging and then serged the side seams. I popped a cupcake in each pouch and tied a ribbon around and had some cute little packaging for his creations. You could easily change the size of this for a larger item. It makes a nice little reusable gift bag.

That's a great idea! I have a necklace for my sister's upcoming birthday--I think I will try and make a bg like this.

If only I knew how to sew! I'm off to ask my friend what the heck serge means. :)

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
