21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Zipped up Earbuds on: February 10, 2010 12:42:52 PM


I sewed the wires of my earbuds into this crazy purple and gold zipper to protect the wires from tangling and breakage.  I think it looks pretty neat, too!



I simply separated the wires all the way down to the plug, then sewed each wire along one side of the zipper.  Just fold the zipper tape in half towards the wrong side and use a running stitch to enclose the wire inside.



Keep them zipped in your bag, then unzip them when it's time to enjoy your tunes.

kinda last minute, but for any craftsters on the west side of the river interested in a meetup group, the portland sewing circle is meeting at the Hillsdale library Tuesday, Jan 19th for a burda/ottobre/japanese craft book pattern tracing night (patterns provided!) at 6pm.  no donation or costs required (although you're always welcome to if you feel moved to do so.)

http://www.meetup.com/PDXSewingCircle/calendar/11935037/?a=cr1p_grp&rv=cr1p

The next sewing circle meetup planned is on Jan 30th, it's a fabric and supplies sell, trade, destash and restash sale open to everyone.  The location for this still hasn't been determined yet, but it looks like we're leaning towards the east side

Portland area sewists (seamstresses and seamsters? not sewers, that sounds better than it looks written, anyway, people who sew) should all be aware of the meetup.com group, The PDX Sewing Circle, http://www.meetup.com/PDXSewingCircle/.  I have had a great time at every meetup I've gone to with these fine folks.  The organizer, Davina, is fantastic, as is everyone I've met through the group.  The locations are fun, and the meetups are nice and regular.  Locations vary from east to west sides of the river, and sometimes there's a theme, or just free crafting.  of course, you're always welcome to bring whatever project you're stitching up and share in the conversation.

The next meetup http://www.meetup.com/PDXSewingCircle/calendar/11935114/ will be at PDX Seamsters, a fantastic sewing studio that you should be sure to check out.  A nice big studio space with plenty of tables, outlets, and irons all available to use.  Sewing machines are available to borrow for $5 an hour or bring your own (there are a couple of sergers there, too!). That'll be next saturday, at 2:00pm.  There is a $10 (sliding scale) donation suggested, since there are costs for renting the space, but it's a great deal, and so worth it.

I'll be there for sure, so anyone interested in sewing (of any skill level!) should be sure to come, too.  There's sure to be lively conversations, advice and opinions if you want it, and new project ideas.  I'd love to see more craftster people there! Check out their page on meetup, have look at the calendar and what people are saying.  I'm just a new member to the group, but feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I received my sweet package from meowari!
She made me this cute whale covered notebook.

The inside is also beautiful with these textured pages.

She also made me a cute whale stamp, and a bookmark with the stamp on it, all pretty and sparkly!


Thank you so much Meowari! I love them!

Had some dental drama Wednesday night, then no dentist on Thursday, Finally got in Friday night so I'm running a little behind on my project. (and all my chores and everything else I was supposed to do for the last three day  Tongue )  I'm feeling a lot better today, though, so I'm going to get to work!  I'll make the deadline and I'll be sending on monday.

Having bad crafty luck! You ever have one of those projects you just know is going to be easy... and then it isn't?  I also tried a new craft, but that came out pretty sad, too.  Ah well, one more try then!

Big cheers to everyone who's already ready to send! I know just what I'm going to do, still need to grab some materials and get started with it, though. I'm in the same boat with everyone planning to do it this weekend.

I could be down for that! shake things up a little bit! What time are we thinking? 5 or 6 would probably be good for me, but later could work, too.
