New Beginnings . . . Week 16

Thirty-seven weeks to go . . . Where will my creativity and the Internet take me this week?!

I didn’t make it in time! I’m sixteen minutes late, but I did finish my project for week 16. I made another One Hour Basket; mine took much longer because I made a scrappy quilt as you go exterior (front and back). You will love this quick and easy project. 1 Hour Basket Tutorial

New Beginnings . . . Week 15

Thirty-eight weeks to go . . . I’m thinking about making a wall organizer for some of my sewing tools.

I have so much stuff; buttons, zippers, grommets, velcro, you name it. At least, I thought I had it. I completed the sewing part of the craft room hanging organizer, and the last step was to add grommets for hanging. Oh well!, guess what happened? I couldn’t find the grommets for my organizer. I know I have some, but where is the question. That’s what happens when your sewing room is unorganized. So, I’m posting my finished craft room hanging organizer without the grommets. I will re-post when I add them. I really enjoyed making this hanging organizer. It was quick and easy; just remember to have all your materials before you start. If you’re interested in making this organizer click on the link.  Craft Room Hanging Organizer Tutorial by Jess Dewit. You can make it as large or small as you want! Enjoy!

I added my grommets!

New Beginnings . . . Week 14

Thirty-nine weeks to go . . .  ummmmm, what will I create this week?

As usual, this was another fully booked week. I didn’t get a chance to create anything new, so I decided to make two more pillowcases and some pocket tissue holders that you  can attach to your key ring or backpack. I box my corners. It gives it a different look. I couldn’t find the tutorial that I used years ago; that showed you how to make several tissue holders at one time. Anyway, I posted pictures and will add the tutorial at a later date. You can always Goggle it if you really need to try it now. Hope next week will be better.

New Beginnings . . . Week 13

Forty more  weeks to go . . . Maybe I’ll get to those pillowcases this week. 

Completed my pillowcase; thinking about making two more. I checked out several tutorials, and the measurements were slightly different.  For instance Crafty Gemini’s measurements were; 24″, 12″, and 2″, and Jenny Doan’s (Missouri Star Quilt Co.) measurements were: 27″, 9″, and 2″. However, I noticed that the top and bottom add up to 36″ before sewing. I’ve attached the PDF pillowcasepattern  tutorial by Lindsay Conner that I used, and of course pictures of my pillowcase.

New Beginnings . . . Week 12

Forty-one weeks to go . . .  maybe, pillowcases, I’m not sure!

Oh Well! I didn’t make pillowcases, but I did make a DIY Neck Wallet by Shabby Fabrics, Jennifer Bosworth is the instructor. I think you will  like making this too. I’ve added the video tutorial and link for the free pattern. As always, I’ve posted pictures of what I mad, and I added a decorative stitch to my neck wallet. Have fun!
