These kites are quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever made. Julie is working on decorating Claire's "big girl" bedroom, and the theme is kites. She originally wanted me to make some larger kites, but then she saw a kite bunting on Etsy and we went with this instead.
Each kite is about 4" x 6" with a 9" tail. The whole strand is about 8' long. There are buttons on the back of each kite through which the ribbon is threaded.

This bag is for Claire's Easter package. I actually bought this fabric on clearance at Joann's for a completely different purpose, but I decided at the last minute that Claire's Easter presents needed a bag. The twins got purple bags for their Easter presents, which apparently I didn't photograph before packing them up, though I made them quite awhile ago.
Finished size: 6" x 6" x 2" plus handles

I have finally purchased a Kindle. I don't have a smartphone, and I will be traveling enough this year that I decided it would be worth it. About a week after it arrived, I woke up one morning and remembered this elastic I'd been saving because it said "book worm," hoping to find a suitable use for it. Where did I find this awesome elastic? It came off a pair of underwear. Since it was from the waistband, it was long enough to cut in half and make two bands. I suspect they will be mostly decorative, but they can be used to hold the case shut, or secure other items.
