Thanksgiving Turkey & Winter Snowman Applique Tutorial

Last year I contributed this fun applique tutorial over at So Sew Easy. I’m reposting it here so it can be part of my official blog records. One of my favorite things to sew is machine applique.  I love to draw out images and create them in applique. This is two fun little appliques that you can make from one basic pattern. You can have Thanksgiving and Christmas covered with both!

Make a Turkey and a Snowman applique, all from the same applique pattern! This tutorial includes tips to make your applique look completely professional | The TipToe Fairy #applique #crafttutorial #thanksgiving #winter

FIVE Ways to make Workouts Fun & Crystal Light Drink Mixes

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

Before kids I was an athlete.  I was a roller skater like figure ice skaters, but on wheels.  I practiced 3-4 hours a day.  I went to Nationals.  I loved it and continued to do it even after I was married the first time. Then I had children and my ex wanted me to stop.  I regret that decision, but now that my littlest one is getting bigger, I’m ready to be that active girl again.

Blissful Bookworms


It’s that time again! Time to vote for our next book club read.  Two of my favorite books are on the list.  My favorite book ever is The Time Traveler’s Wife – like ever really.  However, I did not give it as a choice.  My choice to read is When Autumn Leaves, which I thought was fun and appropriate because it’s centered around Fall/Autumn, and it’s about a witch.  I love stories about witches.
