Just when you think that you were done shopping for the year, you totally forgot about your aunt who is definitely now visiting for the holidays.
Or you're stumped on what to get your kid's teacher.
Or you desperately need a unique hostess gift.
I've gotcha covered!
This was a post-election pet project that took far too long to do, but I'm so thrilled at how they turned out.
If you couldn't tell by now, I do a ton of sewing. While I don't tend to keep every single little product of waste when sewing (like teeny tiny scraps of fabric), I was keeping my empty thread spools. I had no idea why I was saving them, or what I was going to do with them, but I had been saving them over the years.
The empty spools are not the correct type of plastic to just throw into my mixed recycling bin, so they sat in a plastic tote until this Fall.
The election (or more post-election) was perfect for decompressing with my glue gun, binge-watching 30 Rock in my living room while I made up a ton of these cute little ornaments that were not only reusing my empty spools, but also scraps of fabric and batting.
I know it might be late to be posting these, but I wanted to wait until after crazy craft show season to post them, as I wasn't sure what my inventory levels were going to be, especially with a bunch of one-of-a-kind items. Plus, if I wasn't going to post about them now, the next appropriate time would be next year. I mean, come on.
The ornaments come in sets of three, in a perfectly giftable silver box with a lid. Perfect for sewists, perfect for stocking stuffers, and perfect for hostess gifts.
There's still a few days left to get orders in before delivery by Christmas! So go and snag these cute little ornaments while you can!
