craft night with the ladies!

A few weeks ago a friend and I were carpooling to work.  She mentioned that some other ladies from work were talking about getting together once a month for a craft night, and asked if would I be interested.  My answer?  Heck yes, I would!

The lovely lady who hosted the craft night blows me away with the beautiful things she makes.  She quilts, makes fabric art, and sews up a storm.  Really talented!  (I seriously envy her skills and her craft room.  Or, should I say, craft loft.)

So on Craft Night #1, she taught the rest of us to make canvas art.   Basically, they are fabric covered canvasses with a fabric image ironed on the front.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make one to hang above our coffee station, or one to hang in our bathroom, so I made both.  (Well, three. I couldn’t help it!)

Here are my creations!

These were seriously, super easy to make.  It did help that we had a very patient teacher guiding us through the steps…

Because of their simplicity and absolute cuteness, I have decided that they will make great homemade gifts, for sure!  My mind is already turning: “whose birthday is coming up next?”… “what random holiday can I find an excuse to make one of these for?” … “maybe one for every room?”  :)

Here’s to the next craft night!
