Good morning blog friends,
Boy is it cold outside! We had a few snow flurries yesterday, but nothing to stick around. I know many of you are having considerable amounts of snow and hope you are staying safe.
I want to share a gorgeous win I received in the mail last night. Look how beautifully wrapped it is!
Please be sure to pay Carol a visit. She has been so generous all year long hosting giveaways of the prim woodcrafts her and her hubby create. Stop by and wish them a Merry Christmas.
I was working on some crafts last night and had a few small legs to turn right side out and thought I would share with you my secret on how I turn those pesky little openings right side out. My mom taught me this many years ago and it really works great and not expensive. Matter of fact doesn't cost anything!
All you do is insert the straw in the opening and push all the way to the end of the item your wanting to turn right side out.
Now take your dowel and push some of the fabric into the drinking straw, but don’t push to hard. You don’t want to push a hole through your seem!
Then pull the straw off of the dowel and Walla! It’s right side out! Saves time and aggravation.
This works great on dolls that have those tiny little fingers too!!
Try it sometime, I’m sure you’ll love how well it works.
Got to get to work finishing up crafts I’ve been working on this week. I’ll post some pics’ later this week of them.
Have a great day, and stay warm.
