2  Book covers - PIC HEAVY!! in Completed Projects by wendiek on: November 04, 2015 10:42:16 AM
Hi fellow-craftsters!

A while ago I promised one of my collegues to sew her a changeable book cover. We all received a notebook and I felt it needed a little extra to make each notebook personal. Since I LOVE sewing, it was an easy promise Wink 

That cover started it all! I was very happy with the result and so this is the only picture I have haha.

Okay, I wanted to give my co-worker a cute book cover too. I know she loves purple, so here is number two:

and the inside:

Having so much fun and I needed some distraction from real life, so I sewed another 4:

Inside of two of those:

Inside of the other two:

The 4th I sewed became a patchwork cover which I love so much, I decided to keep that one Cheesy

Here is the patchwork cover , front laid out:

The plan is to sew every one of my collegues one as a Christmas gift. BUT I have 23 collegues...   Roll Eyes So I have to sew another 18 covers to complete my plan... Maybe I will be able to pull it off, otherwise it will be a next Christmas or some other time!  Grin

I need to make myself a journal, but I have never been good at journaling private thoughts. I have tried several methods. I think it goes back to the days my sister would steal my diary and then tease me about it. Her diary had the same key. The journals I do now would be more like altered books. Very general.


When my partner felt depressed, I bought a heart shaped box and filled that with love-quotes (on heart shapes paper). I glued a cloth spin on the lid, so he could put a quote on top of the box and change it when he wanted. Maybe you could do something like that?

I will come back and add a link to this project. done! HERE IT IS

And the picture of the project:

It is my turn to show off my new scrappy happiness!!  Cheesy

yofi spoiled me!
Here's a pic of it all:

She sent me a cute bag with not one, not two but three lovely journals!

Inside two of them also two very pretty knitted bookmarks! The funny thing is that I have exactly the same shiny button in my stash  Cheesy Haha! I love shiny buttons  Grin And the other bookmark has three flower buttons, so cute!

Okay, then yofi made me a beautiful picture frame! She smashed 3 plates and had a few tries, but I cann't tell that it is your first time! It really reminds me of "Delfts Blauw" - Delfts Blue, famous Dutch porcelain. I love it!

Last but certainly not least, a knitted cowl! In 4 different, fun patterns and with different clolours. I love knitted stuff, it is magic to me  Shocked

And here is an action shot, please ignore my messy hair... I really need to get it cut  Roll Eyes Oh and I look bored, but I'm really very happy but taking a pic of myself is complicated Tongue

Thank you so much Alison! I love it all!
I had such a fun time  Cheesy

For those who love the look of scrappy work and/or those with waaaay too many fabric, yarn, paper scraps or various beads, buttons or whatever, I present this swap!

You are free to use whatever scraps you have, with whatever technique you want, as long as you craft items that have lots of different scraps in them! And that you craft according to your partner's taste!

The requirement for the swap will be ONE LARGE (or two mediums) and ONE MEDIUM (or two smalls).
Just about anything can be made 'scrappy'. Here are a few things that I'm thinking about, but I'm sure you can add more to this list!
- potholder
- mug rug
- coffee mug cozy
- place mat (fabric or paper and laminated)
- coasters
- cuff bracelet
- pouch of any kind (sunglasses, coins, phone,...)
- journal cover
- cards
- bracelet (beads, paper beads, buttons, fabric,...)
- necklace
- bookmark
- pillow case
- pincushion
- scarf
- wall art
- picture frame
- gift tags
- magnets

Details of swap:
--You will make one large and one medium OR one large and two smalls OR two mediums and two smalls.
A small is generally considered as something that takes under 2 hours to make; a medium something that takes 2-3 hours to make and a "large" more than 3 hours to make.
--You will have 3 and 1/2 week crafting time, from 04/23/15 - 05/18/15
--You have creative freedom to use any material, any embellishment, any technique you want, as long as what you craft is scrappy (using at least 4 different materials) and suited to your partners tastes.
-- You will need to post in this thread at least once a week so I know you are still crafting with us.

- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizer and your partner know ASAP.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery.

If you have any questions about this or anything else, please ask your organizer.

10  Scrap Happy Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by wendiek on: April 08, 2015 12:52:05 AM
Anyone up for a "Scrap Happy Swap"? Last time it was all about sewing, but it could be crochet, knitting or paper too. As long as it is done with scraps, it is okay!

Think about: scarfs (sewn, knitted, crocheted), pouches, bags, purses, wall art, cards, baskets, mug rugs, coasters, place mats, aprons, pillow covers, amigurumi, ATC, ...

I am willing to organize and will do my best to pair people with same preferences so you could really use up all those scraps. You'd be swapping AND de-stashing  Cheesy

Here's a link to the Scrap Happy Swap-gallery.

And here's a link to the Scrap Happy Swap-thread.

Add your ideas, time line, comments, questions, pics...  Smiley

A few examples:

pouch made by me

crocheted African flowers, also made by me Smiley

cards, yeah made by me..
