Sewing Snails tags

I was invited to submit some items for auction at the Lansdale Silent Art Auction, to benefit the Boys and Girls Club. I am very excited for this- 1. because I will actually sell something (unless nobody bids... sad snails), and 2. it is for a good cause. I was honored to be asked to submit some items- I don't often look at what I do as "art," because I still feel like I am learning and often feel very inadequate! But then again, I feel very inadequate when I play violin too, but I look at that as art. I guess it's because sewing is still so new to me... it just feels different.

Anyhoooooo....

I made these tags for my items today. A little while ago I found this "snail" fabric from fabric.com, and it was on sale for like 2.50/yd or something outrageous like that! So I bought like 4 yards.



I wasn't sure what to do with it, so I thought I could at least make some snails tags. I think they came out cute, but you tell me what you think.









I used "Wonder Under." It's this paper-like stuff that you iron on to the wrong side, peel off, and it leaves this glue, and then you iron on another piece of fabric. So basically you're bonding fabric to fabric.

I did this all while the plumber was here today... I got out of the shower this morning and stepped in soppy carpet in our bedroom. Yuck. So I was being crafty all day while the plumber was here. Good times.

Abby! I have a sewing project for you! I need to do a little more research but basically it would look like this...times 25. whoops.http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/06/05/table-runner-update/

Let me know if you would be interested in doing it...I would need to find relatively cheap fabric though! As long as it comes to less than 10 dollars per runner that would be ok! (thats how much it would cost to rent a colored table cloth instead of just using the white in my wedding package).

I would pay you obvi. if we decide to do this!
Just wanted to see if youd be interested!
