Fifteen weeks to go . . . My project this week doesn’t require fabric. I made a door organizer for my sewing room. I used Dollar Tree items. This is a Dollar Tree DIY-Door Organizer tutorial I found on Facebook by Crafting It Up and Creations Janet; she got this idea from Lifeat50&Beyond. I’ve posted my pics and also links to their videos.
Sixteen weeks to go . . . I got a jump on things and made this weeks project early.
I made an insulated lunch bag for one of my daughters. It’s a DIY that I found on the
JO-ANN Stores’ app; Click here for instructions and video tutorial by Jessica Abbott for
JO-ANN Stores. I posted pics of the bag before and after handles were added. Enjoy!
Seventeen weeks to go . . . I got a jump on things and completed my project early. I was looking for a zippered ID wristlet, and found this website http://www.thimbleanna.com/a-purse-thingy/. I decided to make a muslin purse sample first. Then I increased the pattern size; second sample. I’m pleased with the final outcome.
Eighteen weeks to go . . . Where will creativity take me this time?
I decided to make a pair of baby crib shoes, pattern by Cheri Paxton. I purchased the $6.00 pattern from Living DIY Style. I’ve posted my first pair of baby crib shoes; up-cycled a pair of used pajama pants. I also found a how to video on YouTube with step by step instructions.
Nineteen weeks to go . . . I’m drawn to the bag side, ha ha ha haaaaaaa!
Oh well, I’m thirty minutes late! I didn’t get my project in on time. It was due on the twenty-seventh; however, I made my first Sweetpea Pod. I used Craftsy’s video tutorial The One-Zip Way, with Jane Hawley. I love her zipper technique. I’ve decided to make another one.
Twenty weeks to go . . . What shall I create this week?
Pressed for time , so I created an eyeglass holder from my scrap fabric; added my own twist.
Twenty-one weeks to go . . . I’m going to incorporating quilting in my weekly project.
Oh well, I didn’t do what I wanted to do, so I opted to make a quick change purse/pouch. Front and back pics of the project.
Twenty-four weeks to go . . . Next project, a reusable grocery bag; maybe two or three.
I made my first reusable grocery bag last night, July 17th, I used Shabby Fabrics – YouTube video tutorial. There’s a free downloadable pattern. I posted my pics and the video.
