Gifts for Giving

September 17, 2019 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Ever wanted some really cool easily personalized gifts to give people that you know they'll actually use? Join Carrie for a fun filled day making Tissue Box Cover Ups and Hot Stuff Oven Mitts. The Tissue Box Cover Ups come in all sizes and are fun to make with fabrics that you've been saving for that special someone. The Hot Stuff Oven Mitts are silicone oven sleeves that we'll make linings for that are easily personalized and then you sew it right to the silicone (too fun let me tell you) - they are easily rinsed off when you get food on them since the fabric is on the inside.
All supplies can be purchased in shop before or day of class.
