last minute

As I was working on some Christmas projects yesterday,
I saw this cute fabric in my pile and.....I had an idea:
"Wouldn't it be nice to make a little something for the director of
the Christmas play that we're having tonight?"
The director even writes the play and spends many hours with
the children practicing for the BIG night.
I help out at the piano, so I know how much work she puts in!
Well....I had this GREAT idea at the VERY LAST MOMENT!

I "fussy cut" that cute fabric.
Added a simple red border.
Layered...
1. top.
2. batting.
3. white backing (so I can write a message).
I quickly quilted that and put a binding on!
We're almost done...and it's almost time to go perform!
I stuck some wire through the top of the binding and curled it a little!
oh no! Do I have time to wrap it???
Yes. 5 minutes!
Next time I have a good idea...I sure hope I have it
SOONER!

  4. That is just adorable. And I'm stealing the idea right here and now. I love little quilted thingies like that that you can hang on knobs and drawer handles. Cute, cute, cute! (You have waaay to many creative ideas for one person.)
