1  crafting/gardening with organized style in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by wakawacki on: March 06, 2011 05:48:18 PM
Wasn't sure where else to put this so I guess it goes here. Its not really clothing and not really for the house.  I originally put it up in misc crafts but...no one seems to care so I thought I would try here.



So I decided that to make gardening  easier when it came time for planting, I needed an apron to be helpful. Found the right one in One Yard Wonders then went to my stash of fabrics. The right one immediately leaped out at me. I got this mushroom fabric in the fabric market in korea, and now that i have made something with it I want more and cant find anything similar  Cry  any ways I just followed the instructions from the OYW book and it was super simple to put together.

 Sorry the pics are so bad used my phone's camera because I couldn't find my nice camera. Hopefully better pics to come. The only hard part was putting on the binding. I was using 1/4" when I realized I was supposed to use 1/2" but I didn't have any. SO for now Ill rock this, but when i get the bigger size binding i will put it on and it will be perfection.
 

It has two levels of pockets, the top level divided into two larger pockets on the end and one smaller on in the middle perfect for holding a paintbrush or pens and pencils or something narrow of that nature. the second lower pocket is pretty big, its hard to see but it has two pleats allowing for much stuffing of goodies Smiley Dunno if I will include the pleats next time because all of the gaping, Ill have to see how useful it is. then it also has two loops for holding tools. 

I am very pleased with this, perhaps just because its spring or because I just <3's the fabric. Please let me know what you think.

3  my new crafting inspirations board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by wakawacki on: December 07, 2010 10:41:02 AM
So on the  http://choosetothrive.blogspot.com/ blog I found the other day I saw a tutorial for making the pushpin boards covered in fabric that I have been wanting to make for 2 years, only I never had the occasion to buy cork board. It never occurred to me to use diaper boxes and smaller pushpins so I made one yesterday and love it. Got two more planned for after I finish making Christmas presents



the fabric I got from a friend so I dont know where she got it, the ribbon is some martha steward ribbon my husband bought me.  two tone metallic weave in Gold and Camella Pink.
