Pretty Dice Bag

Pretty Dice Bag

I visited family for Thanksgiving and went to one of my all-time favorite stores, Ben Franklins. Among other things, I scooped up a pre-made brown polkadot pouch and a pretty floral patch. Ta-da! A new pretty dice bag! The patch is not iron-on, which lends itself to...

Travel Bag

Travel Bag

Today's post is all about Michelle Patterns' Mending Kit, which I've used before as a travel bag when I visited Peru, but now with more of my own custom personalizations. (It amazes me how much skill I've picked up accidentally over the years!) I love this...

Martha’s French Boutis Bag

I finished the French boutis bag I've been working on all summer and have decided to gift it to my gramma who travels frequently and may need a nice place for her jewelry or such. I was going to drive through the area yesterday on my way down to Living...

Peru’s Mending Kit

Peru’s Mending Kit

Soooo long ago I mentioned how I owed a post about this bag I made - one I was very proud of! - for my last trip to Peru.  I used the Mending Kit pattern from Michelle patterns and made a few changes here and there to suit my needs. These photos came from after...

WIP-TAST-ic Wednesday 16

First up, you may remember my first foray with candlewick embroidery and the better-than-french-knot colonial knot (here and here). I finally got it pieced to become a wall hanging. Now I will stash it a way a bit until I get the necessary boards to finish the quilt...

Small finishes

You may recall the Monoprice Ultra-thin Light Table pouch I made, yeah? Well, I made it only for the size of the lightbox, knowing I would have to do something for the power adapter. I simply made a small matching bag, and tossed it in a basket that has other power...

Monoprice Ultra-Thin Light Box Sleeve

Monoprice Ultra-Thin Light Box Sleeve

You may recall I purchased an amazing light table from Monoprice a while back. I've been keeping it in the original box for safe storage, but it is much larger than required so over the last two evenings, I made a giganto pouch for it! Voila, the monoprice ultra-thin...

Zippered pouches

Zippered pouches

I got on a roll making things with zippers. I began with the Fancy Stitched Quilted Zipper Pouch tutorial I snagged from Joanns last time I stopped in. Obviously, I couldn't just follow the instructions - I don't know why I am like that but I just have to change...

Sweetpea pods

Sweetpea pods

As mentioned before, this is a pattern I picked up from the Illiana Shop Hop. It is from Lazy Girl Designs, and I see they have many little projects. Being my first-ever zipper project, I was a little nervous - especially since the pattern says to practice! But I...

Lysa’s match needle book

Lysa’s match needle book

Here it is! This is the result of a pattern I tested for Lysa, the most generous gal to have given me a free kit to make my own (serious goodness, right there!). I truly felt that this little needle book was one of the most clever things I've seen around. I just had...

Boy asked me to make a game case for his ds games. He wanted something small, and had no problem with how it looked, only that it functioned well. I love hearing that because it means i dont need to fuss over the project to make it nice and neat. Hes perfectly happy...

Crafternoon!

Crafternoon!

A while back I discovered the idea of a Crafternoon. Unfortunately I dont remember where the idea came from, but when you google it, you can see different takes on the theme. The general idea is to get together and make projects while you hang out. Since a lot of the...

surprises

So there i was, straightening my sheets the other day and as I flipped the top sheet over to tug the bottom one, I was greeted by this huge monster. Perhaps he wasnt as mammoth as I had originally thought, but mind you *i was just in the bed*. Literally, like 60...
