DIY vintage style sprinkle favors


I had the idea to make my own signature sprinkle mix ever since I saw the Amy Sedaris sprinkle mix around Christmas time. Of course I knew I would want to hand out my sprinkles in true vintage style, so I came up with a label that works with these retro sprinkle bottles. The little girl is from an actual vintage sprinkle label, and I think works perfectly with these jars. Besides being a great party favor (our next crafternoon we are making faux cakes and I felt like this would be the perfect party favor) I think they would be so fun as a party activity! Put out a bunch of different kinds of sprinkles, give everyone a bowl for mixing and a jar to fill, each person can create their own signature sprinkle mix to take home. Continue reading

La Passacaglia Quilt




I have been working on a la passacaglia quilt from the book Millefiori Quilts for quite some time now. I had taken a break from it to instead hand sew on my Diamond Hex quilt, and a big reason was lack of space to spread my big quilt out and see where I need to hand stitch the next section to.

I am hoping to solve this problem soon with a quilt wall which I ordered from Massdrop. If you’ve never heard of Massdrop it is an online community for enthusiasts that provides people across several communities—from audio and electronics to quilting and cooking—a place to connect with one another, discuss their favorite products and activities, and buy those products together. Since you are buying something with a bunch of other people, you get lower prices. I love the quilting section, and cannot wait for my quilt wall to arrive! Then I feel like I’ll finally have an area that I can figure out where each cog goes.
