First Monday in November ( did I just say NOVEMBER??) What happened to October? The days are flying by too fast for me! Well the good thing about it being the first Monday in November is... It's Crafty Secrets Linky Party Day, AND it's our first Linky Party/Design Team Challenge of sorts, with our new DT members :) I cant wait to see what everyone has created. I'll post links to all their blogs at the bottom of this post. We hope you all will want to create something with your Crafty Secrets products and join in the linky party fun. You can read all about it here on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog. Super easy and fun!
I'm so excited to get to share a peak at a new download that has just become available. A while ago I showed you some cute Box Templates. Well... check out the printable templates for these cute baskets and pockets. "IF" I knew how to crochet I would have done that, but since I don't, I used a simple blanket stitch around mine. Do you remember these?? I know my mom, aunts and Grandma all had them. Theirs were made from Christmas cards.
I'll show some step by steps in upcoming post, showing different ways you can put them together.
There is what the templates look like. There is another sheet with the basket bottom template on it.
There are two different ones available for down load. The "Christmas kids" below , and then "Retro Christmas" below it.
Like I said, there are a number of different ways you could stitch them together. You could even punch larger holes and help the kids make one with yard.
If you know how to crochet... come over and teach me will you? lol
I love that I could add a "To" and "From" to them if I wanted to, like I did on the one below. These are done with a blanket stitch like the baskets, and have twig handles . The middle one had a gift card in it, (I see it slipped down while I was photographing it and I didn't notice :( It has a tinsel handle.
They are the perfect size for gift cards. I was thinking ..hey would make great teacher gifts.. coworkers, ect..
I love projects like this that I can relax and enjoy working on while I'm watching TV or something.
There is also a different one on the soon to be released "Christmas CD". (shhhhhhhh.)
Like I said.. we'd love to have you join in the linky party here on the Heartwarming Vintage blog.
Here is the list I promised of the other Design Team members blogs. Be sure to pop over and see what they've been working on.
Thanks so much for coming by!!
I took in a Flea Market over the weekend and found some fun things. Cant wait to share with you in my next post.
