5 Minute Projects

Here's a few quickie 5 minute projects!

A new spring Blankie
The flowered side is a soft lightweight fuzzy cotton. The opposite side is a silky polyestered. I rounded the corners by using a drinking glass as my template. I serged the two pieces together (wrong sides together) and voila...done in 5!

A Heart Barrette
I cut a heart shape from a piece of paper as a template and then cut 2 hearts from red felt. I added a barrette on the lower bottom heart. I hand-stitched the two together with white embroidery thread. Actually, this project took a bit longer than the blankie...maybe 10 min.

Barrette Hanger
Here's a really quick one. I bought the pre-painted top pieces from Michaels along with some fancy coordinating ribbon (one thick, one thin). I hot-glued the ribbon on to make a barrette holder (no sewing involved!). These are super fast and you can make a bunch of these at one time once you've got your gun warmed up and voila...done in 3-5!

Princess Ariel Pillow
My last one is this Princess Ariel Pillow. I completed this one in about 5-10 min. I used the serger for all of it.

I love my serger!!

  1. I totally need to learn how to use my sewing machine! I want to learn so bad but I don't think it's something I can "self teach"! UGH!!! Great work!
