I think I may be turning over a new leaf here at Small Fry and Co. Stay tuned for hopefully (fingers crossed) more ideas, and a better all around blog. I am kicking things off with a series I am calling "Little Gifts". Seems like around the holidays there is always a need for a little gift to give someone (a neighbor, a teacher, a co-worker) that you don't always think of ahead of time and may have not planned for in your budget or on your gift list. Here is the first of a few great "little" ideas that are easy to make, inexpensive and super cute for just such a need.
Little Gift # 1-Pretty Pincushions. You can find the pattern and a tutorial by going here.
These are really cute and made from less than a 1/4 yard of fabric. I bought coordinating colors and alternated two patterns on the top and used the third pattern for the bottom. Perfect for anyone who sews.
