Last Minute Sewing

Can you believe Taylor is still in school? We are the only district in our area that isn’t on break for the holidays. Of course, with Taylor continuing her ‘usual’ schedule, things are extremely busy – and there’s lots of quick projects to show for it. First, I created some ‘mittens’ for a candy relay race for her party this afternoon (you have the kids wear mittens and unwrap Hershey’s Kisses). Originally, I had intended on making several ‘nice’ set – something that could be used over again. Instead, I was sewing last-minute presents for Taylor to give to a few of her friends (more on that in a few minutes) and wound up doing a very quick and easy version. Actually, I’m not sure that they could even be considered mittens, they’re more like hand sleeves! Oh well, considering their purpose, they’ll work!
I also sewed up 3 clutches from Bend-the-Rules Sewing. Taylor selected the fabrics from my stash and I sorted through my buttons and came up with these:

I have a feeling that I will have a request for more clutches once she comes home tonight.
Now that the sewing is done, it’s time to finish up last minute party details. Thank goodness today is the last day of school!

    Our schools closed 2.5 hours early today because of a HUGE water main break (and important road-closing) in one part of the county. They probably will not be able to open schools tomorrow, either – making the little kids miss the holiday parties. Sad! It is affecting so many areas – my DH was also sent home from work because the building had no water – even though his building is just about as far away as you can get from the break and supposedly gets it’s water from a different supply!

    What I meant to say was that the game sounds like a hoot, and your little bags are perfect! I think you and Taylor will have to set up an assembly line.
    (Have you tried using colored hair elastics for the button closure?)
