I am so happy with this project!

I have been wanting to make a lip gloss key chain for a while and finally had the chance to do so. I LOVE IT! They turned out just the right size 🙂 I was very pleased.

Once I had the lip gloss version done I was very happy to find a similar size spray bottle that works perfectly for liquid hand sanitizers! It would be awesome for perfume as well.

Once I had this key chain ready, I couldn’t resist making another size for larger hand sanitizer bottles. This works great for many 1 oz flip top bottles that usually hold gel hand sanitizers.

Since this project is so small, I used my purple thang a ton while sewing.

I used them for the first time today and I already love them. Perfect to add to your key ring or purse. These are also super cute as gifts! And since they don’t take much fabric, they are very affordable.

This is a cute fun little project. It is super fast to make, and handy to have around the sewing room, especially if you do a lot of hand sewing. These also make really cute gifts.

It doesn’t take much fabric, so it is a good way to use up your scrap fabric!

I love the little pockets. You can store thread, needle threaders, needle grips, and even tiny travel scissors.

This book measures approximately 3.5 x 2.625 inches when finished.

Supplies:

Scrap Cotton Fabric (or 1/4 yard)

Felt

Kindergarten Headphones Pillow

We had a surprising need come up at our school. Teachers noticed that the poor little kindergarten students were struggling to use the computer lab headphones because they were much too large, the speakers hanging below their ears.

As a result, we received a request to find a solution that our sewing students could help with so we didn’t have to buy new headphones. This was it! A kindergarten headphone pillow. It wraps around the bar of the headphones so it rests comfortably at the top of the head and raises them up just a bit so they sit better on smaller heads.

They are small, cheap, and you can make them with scrap fabric!
