November 15, 2019 Newsletter - New Christmas Items on Etsy

Hi everyone!

How have you been? I have been a busy bee these last couple of weeks. In between my VA work and medical tests (more about that at another time), I have made a few more of those fun (and this time, festive) hanging kitchen towels and a few sets of pillow covers. Images of those new items are below. Here are the links where you can see all our dish towels and pillow covers with additional photos:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HHC2019?ref=seller-platform-mcnav&section_id=27300549 and https://www.etsy.com/shop/HHC2019?ref=seller-platform-mcnav&section_id=27325770

Shipping is free when your purchase totals $35 or more. If your total is less than $35 but you want to purchase more than one item from our Etsy shop, send us a message through Etsy and we'll adjust your shipping fees to save you money. November 26 through December 3, 2019 is going to be a huge sales week throughout the entire Etsy website. During that time, we're going to offer 20% off any $10 or higher purchase from our store. We look forward to seeing you!

October 2, 2019 Newsletter - New Bowl Cozies Listed on Etsy

Good morning! We're so happy you've stopped in to visit for a few minutes. It's hard to believe it's October 2 and our temperatures are still in the 90s! But despite all this heat, I've managed to make a few more Christmas items and list them on Etsy.

We hope you can drop by to look at our new Christmas bowl cozies at HHC2019 (Happy Home Creations)  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HHC2019?ref=seller-platform-mcnav&section_id=25697310

FELT SNOWFLAKE TISSUE BOX COVER - Product Review

I made this tissue box cover from a Bucilla/Plaid kit. The instructions need some tweaking. It calls for hand sewing throughout, which is fine until you attach the sides and top to each other. That should really be done with a sewing machine. However, because the instructions called for the side and top panels to be cut inside the black [cutting] lines, it would have been impossible to sew with a sewing machine so close to all those beads and sequins, so I did finish by whip stitching the sections together. My whipstitching is not even and that was very noticeable. The cover is too tight as well and pulled apart at the seams as I pulled it over the tissue box.

So I do have a helpful recommendation if you buy one of these kits. That is to cut out the side and top panels, leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance so you can neatly sew those together with your sewing machine. That will also allow the cover to fit over the box so the seams won't pull apart.  I should be making the Santa cover from this kit this month. So I will report if my recommendations helped after I complete that one.

It's still a pretty piece that I can use each winter for a few years. I wish I could capture all that awesome sparkle for you. I think the magnificent shimmer from the beads and sequins will keep the focus off those seams! This has given me an idea for some of my own felt TBC designs. Because overall, I did enjoy making this project. I think that's because felt is so easy to work with.



Have a nice day!
