I like to make things.  Sewing projects.  Pottery.  Home renos…
I’m always trying something.

This year I decided that I’d like to try completing #101LainieProjects.


Here are a few things that I’ve made so far…

#25daysofmittens was a fun project which helped donate $300 towards toys for children at Christmas!




Charlie gets lots of hand-me-downs from her brothers.  I wanted her to have a little something of her own.  I decided to learn how to sew pom poms to add onto her toque.

With everyone in our house sick, I thought I’d try making the kids some microwaveable heating bags to bring into bed. I just need to buy some rice or barley to fill this little guy.

I took a pottery class and made this bowl myself!  LOVED the experience.

I sewed a few things for baby gifts.  I love these little pants made out of a pair of socks!  The suspenders were made into little toy clips.



I like to make stuff.  I try to sew without patterns and make homemade gifts.  You can see more of my projects on Instagram (@verylainie).
