What the heck is a pocket baby?

I thought of another item I wanted to make. Crayon rolls! They are so cute and pretty easy to do so why not. I might even do some more cutlery rolls while I'm at it. The more the merrier!

so after I don't know how many months I finally caved and bought some supplies :/ You see I have been donating a lot of my stash to friends and the teen center that I work at so my stash is considerably smaller. I have also been using a lot of my stash for two swaps that I am in currently. That being said, I bought about 2-4 yards of fabric for the Teesha Moore craft along because the fabrics were so cute and only 2-3$ per yard. And I got 1/4 yard of most of them and no more so I suppose I did OK considering I could have gotten a lot more. Then while I was at Michael's I bought some 1$ stamps and a square punch that was on clearance for 3$. But I consider those tools and not stash especially since the stamps are clear and can fit in my binder.

Hello, My name is Alyssa and I am 1 day without buying craft supplies :/

A square punch on sale for 3 bucks is a pretty stellar deal though, wish I'd been there for one of those. I can't find circle punches for less than 10$, it's ridiculous! And I can't seem to find those stencil sets for kids with basic shapes either, circle, square, triangle etc. I wouldn't mind adding tools like that to my stash. And Teesha Moore project fabric, I am currently collecting that myself too. I can't be perfect about not adding anything in, especially when I've been so great at moving stuff out!

I need to figure out a giant version of a crayon roll or a needle roll to use as a weaving stick shuttle roll. That should use up some fabric.

Speaking of using up fabric, I recently got interested in toothbrush rugs. I still have to figure it all out, but at least now I have the needles. I bought a set of paint brushes at Family Dollar for one buck. I've had no luck finding toothbrushes with the hole. I guess for some reason they are not as common in the U.S. as they used to be. If you are not in the U.S., or have a stash of older toothbrushes somewhere, you can break off the end with a pliers and then sand it down. For my paint brush handles, I bent them back and forth until the plastic was weak enough that I could snip it with an old scissors. Then I sanded them to a blunt point. They are nothing fancy, but you can take a closer look by clicking the image, if you wish.



The biggest brush was too bulky to use as a needle, and besides I need it to do some real painting once it cools off a bit. When I check the outdoor caulk on our windows this fall, I might as well do some painting, too.

Here are a couple of links about toothbrush rugs. Have any of you tried this? I'd love to know more about it. It looks like something that would be easy, once you get the hang of it. I might start a few rugs as take-along in the van projects, and finish them when it is no longer so hot that I'd be bothered by a thick fabric thing sitting on my lap. Or maybe I could work on a table top, so there is no heavy rug draped over me.

I've read somewhere that this is Naalbinding, or something like it.

Eeeeeeh I need to join.
My 50 gallon tupperware container is overflowing into another storage container.
FULL OF YARN.
My fabric isn't that bad yet. But I still need to push down in order to close the container.

so this is what my room looks like now (well, one side of it) so that is what I am working on this weekend. Do you think cleaning this counts as a project? LOL  Grin



And this is the other side :/

LL I have to check out those links, that sounds really neat-o.

MNR Welcome to crafty supply horders anonymous Cheesy.

2 thumbs up DarkLady and Sure it counts! You have to orgainze in order to destash, many of us buy something we already have just 'cause we can't find it in our mountains of stuff.
BTW, your "other side" still looks better than anywhere I can even see in this mess of a studio. I've got it pretty tidy in here compared to lately too. I should be ashamed of myself but really, I'm just too busy to even care Tongue.

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/
