Some crafts keeping me busy

I try to keep myself busy. I always feel like I need to be doing something creative. I wanted to share with you a few of the crafty things I have been doing lately. I love to make jewelry from junk and other pieces of vintage jewelry. It is a fun hobby that I started this past summer. Another thing I accomplished lately is making a apron that I sewed by hand. I don't have a sewing machine, so anything I make I sew by hand. This one took awhile as I didn't even measure...just went to work. I ended up making it way to big...had to cut it in half and find a way to sew it back together. Thank goodness for vintage laces. I think it turned out great. I used napkins folded in half for pockets. Now I can use this apron when I do the flea markets. I have a place to put my money and not lose track of it. The last item is a sweet dolly I made for my friend that had a premature baby and just brought her home. I hope you enjoy my fun little projects. I love making things!


  1. Oh Rachel, I love your apron!!!! And you are just like me, no sewing machine. Well, I have one but don't know how to use it.
    You will be so CUTE in your booth and running sales with your apron.
    Keep the fun stuff coming,
    Hugs, Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)
