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.

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.
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 PDFpillowcasepattern tutorial by Lindsay Conner that I used, and of course pictures of my pillowcase. Click on the pillowcasepattern link above.
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!
Forty-two weeks to go . . . hmmmm . . . create, create, create
It was another rough week, but I’m determined to complete my 52 week challenge. So, I made a catch all fabric basket. I used the Crafty Gemini’s video tutorial. I sewed the corners up of my basket. It gives it a different look.
Forty-three weeks to go . . . Let’s see what creations come to mind this week!
Once again, I took the quick way out; by finding a quick project to complete. I made a keychain chapstick holder. This was a five minute project. I found the instructions onCrazy Little Projectswebsite.
Forty-five more weeks to go . . . Working on something for the kitchen.
Of course, today is Sunday, Feb. 26th and I’m just making my weekly project. I created a quick and easy hot pad. As usual, I added a few of my own touches. I’ve posted pictures and the video I used below. Hope you give it a try.
Forty-six more weeks to go . . . Surprise surprise! OH WELL! This was not a good week for me. I was busy working on my quilt that I’m displaying at the Quilt and Sewing Fest of New Jersey, March 2-5. So I bombed this week because I didn’t create anything new, but I did useSusie’s Magic Bindingon my quilt (picture on the right).
Forty-seven weeks to go . . . This week I’m working on the crossback apronby Corinne. I completed the apron, not too pleased with the outcome. I guess I should’ve used a linen material. It would have draped better.
