Little "FLossies" and a Progress Report

I've been getting ready to host my Quilting Group tomorrow night. I wanted to have some little "favor" to give them, so I've been making these "Flossies". I first saw the idea on someone's blog and I loved them. Here's the problem: I can't remember who's blog is was. I have searched and searched. I know it was a blog I follow and I want to give credit to whoever had the original idea. If the design was your creation, or you know who's it was, please let me know!

These are so much fun to make. It's like picking out fabric and making little dresses, only it takes a fraction of the time. I just cut the shape out of light weight cardboard, glued scrapbook paper on both sides, then wrapped the Embroidery Floss cummerbund, tucking in the end. I must warn you, they can be addictive!

Now, on to my progress report. I'm still "goin' round in circles". It's funny that the name of this pattern is "Square Dance", but I get it. The colors are crazy bright, even form me, but I think one of my grand daughters will like it. I still have a ways to go. The morning after Quilt Group, I'm leaving for Salt Lake for my grand daughter's baptism. I will try to post pics of what my quilting buddies are up to before I leave. Then, I hope to explore some quilt shops in Salt Lake. They are so lucky to have so many to choose from there! Until tomorrow... thank you for visiting!  -Derrith

Oh, your "Flossies" are adorable!! I'm sure your quilting friends will LOVE them! They would make a super cute banner for a little girls birthday, or a bridal shower, too. :-)

These are so much fun! You could make floss bracelets and use them as belts too. I think these would be cute for my scrapbook group. Thanks for sharing. Love the quilt too!
