    Here's some tooth fairy pillows I made for my twins...you can make the pocket with their initials, or use embroidery off of old jeans, sweatshirts, whatever... These are fairly simple to make and don't take up much time at all. I started saving my kids clothes that have designs or embroidery so that I could use them in the future for more tooth pillows. I plan to donate those for a fundraiser that our school has every year. With these, you could easily change the fabric whenever, make them more personalized for someone, etc.

    Old timey aprons are my favorite.....the ones that your arms go through so your shirt does not get splattered.

    And my favorite thing of all and something I will buy everytime I see one are the towels that are crocheted on that you can hang in your kitchen.

    That is it from me....

    Ok now I have American Girl Doll clothes, Tooth Fairy Pillows, Crocheted Dish Towells and Feed Sack bags. FYI: one of my best sellers last year was Microwave Baked Potato Bags...also used for corn on the cob and sweet potatoes.

    If I don't get of BYC for a while...I'll NEVER get anything made. [​IMG]

    just had to edit to add.... I used my feed bags as wall paper in my chicken coop! It was so funny at first, watching the hens eyeball those bags. They were expecting feed to tumble out. [​IMG]

    My DH has mentioned this from time to time...I may give it a try. I don't have a heavy enough machine to do leather, and haven't yet run across the nylon to do that kind. WAIT! Maybe I do have some nylon fabric...runs in my mind there is a couple of broken camp chairs in the garage..... I am SUCH a little recycler! teee Heeee. [​IMG]
