When I worked at Quilters Haven in Bountiful, we participated in a Shop Hop and our theme was Wizard of Oz. I made this little Toto to be made into kits. He now sits in my sewing room. And now for the piece de resistance...

One of the shop's customers makes sock monkeys, but this ain't yor ordinary monkey...

Cutest Dorothy ever made and she's mine!! (You can't really tell by this picture, but she has ruby red sneakers.)


I wanted to make a large bag that I could take with me when I am scrounging for quilt stuff. This one was really fun to make but fell a little short in the technical areas. I didn't plan it correctly and so the edges all around don't have any allowances for seaming. It still works, though and is certainly BIG enough!
Inside pocket. I used a left over square to fancy up the pocket.

Foaming Hand Soap Recipe

If you hang onto one of those foaming hand soap dispensers, you can make your own when it's finally empty...

Pour 1 T liquid hand soap into empty foaming soap dispenser (depending on the size of your dispenser, you can add a little more soap)
Fill the rest of the dispenser with warm water (leave a little space at the top)
Screw on the led and shake.
Pump the dispenser a few times to get the foaming started.
