Here is my design team project for February for The Piece By Piece:

I created a Muslin Roll for my sister-in-law's 50th Birthday.  We will be in Ecuador with her on her 50th birthday and I wanted to take her a homemade gift (she has always loved handmade gifts) but it needed to be small since we have to pack light.  I took two strips of muslin that were approx. 3" wide by 50" long and sewed pieces of  laces and trims from The Piece By Piece.  I also stitched a vintage measuring tape across the top so I would have 50".  I then sewed both pieces together - leaving the frayed edges out.  I then embellished each sides with pictures from Julie's 50 years.  It was perfect because aren't our lives like little pieces of this and that stitched together to make life.  I printed the pictures out on fabric paper so they would be flexible when the roll was rolled up.  The links to the items I used from The Piece by Piece, the store and my video are all below:
