I forgot to post a tutorial yesterday because it was my daughter's birthday. I guess I got a little caught up in the celebration of it, and the fun it was to watch her with her presents! So here is the tutorial that I was going to post yesterday.
1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
Roll each wedge into a crescent, by starting at the wide end, and rolling it to the narrow tip. Place on a greased baking sheet with the tip tucked underneath.
Allow to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
Bake @ 350 Degrees for 20 - 25 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
Makes 36 rolls.
(I occasionally make them a little bigger, and make chicken salad sandwiches, or turkey sandwiches with them. They are HEAVENLY no matter how you eat them!)
I doubt you will be able to resist eating one hot out of the oven! I know I can't!!!
My husband thought it was silly to post a recipe on here when it really is more of a sewing/craft blog. My reasoning... I hope someone in the family sees how easy it is to make these rolls so they will make them for the next family dinner that I get invited to! (I can't think of a single dinner that we've been invited to that I haven't been asked to bring these to.)
So, since this is a sewing/craft blog... here's a second tutorial to make up for the cooking nonsense. ;)
Aspiring Artist's Clutch
How cute is this???
So easy to make! I had it totally finished in less than an hour - and that was with drawing up a pattern too!
1/2 yard cotton fabric
10" x 8" coordinating cotton print
1" x 3" Velcro
Cut out the following from the cotton print:
10" x 8" (cut 1)
Crayon pocket: 8" x 6" (cut 1)
Notebook pocket: 8" x 5" (cut 1)
Place the cotton print, and the coordinating cotton print together, and cut one 8" end so that it is curved slightly as shown below.
Fold and iron the 6" x8" crayon pocket in half so it measures 3" x 8" Lay this so raw edges are even with the bottom edge of the main clutch, and sandwiched between the two main clutch pieces. (In the picture below, I have the top layer folded back so you can see the pocket....not trying to confuse you.)
Clip corners, and around the curve every 1/4" and turn right side out,
(here is what the inside should look like now)
creating 7 pockets that hold 2 crayons each.
This would be a great gift for any child! Especially because it can go ANYWHERE, and the crayons won't fall out. Church... car.... Dr's office... yep.... pretty much anywhere! This would go great with the Travel Pillow, or the Sunbeam Tote! Or maybe combine the three to create an awesome gift for a little kid who is preparing for a car trip that will last more than 30 minutes.
I love giveaways! And it's been a really long time since I hosted one! So, how about a giveaway!!! :)
