Mixing It Up

Another quick and fun project to make is this mixer cover (pattern here). This is the second one I've made and it's such an easy gift. My mom gave me her left over fabric from her kitchen curtains and chair cushion ...





I love how it turned out. I used one of Angry Chicken's gift tags - "Please act surprised when you open this" since she knows exactly what she is getting for Christmas. I actually used the tags on quite a few gifts to spice things up a bit. No gift bags, John opens them and no ribbon, cat eats them. The little ones seem to reek such havoc ;-D

A little side note: I mentioned Laptop Lunches in this post and feel I should pass on a discount code (which is : holiday2008) that they were kind enough to notify me of. All items at laptoplunches.com are 20% off through Dec. 31, 2008. I ordered the Laptop Lunch Bento Box Set for Henry and he loves it. No more plastic bags and he ate every stinking thing in his box. Just thought you might want (need) to mix it up a bit too.

Merry Christmas!
