2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / V-Day Door Decor on: February 04, 2013 12:32:43 PM
I just made a door decoration with scrap fabric, beads, perl cotton thread. I used dollar store cookie cutter hearts for templates. The hearts are stuffed.
My resolution is to buy less crafting crap and use up what I have.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pattern Weights on: January 24, 2013 08:54:58 AM
I made these pattern weights out of fabric scraps old lentils and popcorn kernels. Although ladder stitching closed forty little bags was time consuming, it was worth it. I frigging hate pinning.

Another online tute.

I made this coffee cup organizer from Simplicity pattern 2450, super easy. I see many more in my future.
The hand sewing kit is from the book "Zakka style". I love every project in the book.
I used scraps for both from fabric left over from pillowcases I made my daughter.
The owl fabric is from JoAnn's in case anyone likes it.

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Zakka Style Swap on: August 04, 2012 09:37:11 AM
I have the book Zakka Style: 24 Projects Stitched with Ease to Give. I would love to do a swap using the projects in the book or something similar.

The projects are simple to do, but you do need a sewing machine.

I wouldn't know how to host but it could be a great swap. The end products is useful too.

The Hubs does his own laundry, and he likes to line dry. Made him a peg bag out of vintage fabric. I have yards and yards. I paid a dollar for it. I like it, everyone else says yikes. Heavy cotton weight.

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Pot Belly Pig Palace on: July 08, 2011 09:59:34 AM
My husband built this pot belly pig habitat for our pigs Penelope and Porkchop. It has a misting system to help cool them off and they get hosed several times a day. They love to wander around the yard outside the pen. Until we got the ( rescues ) pigs I assumed pigs were not very bright, boy was I wrong! Porkchop figured out how to lift the gate off the hinges and then went and busted Penelope out too.
Since welcoming them into our home I no longer eat pork, they are so sweet and smart bacon is now ruined for me.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old Jeans And T-shirts into Potholders Tutorial reposted on: May 17, 2011 03:28:54 PM
rsu= right side up
rsd= right side down
rso= right side out
rst= right sides together

I have store bought display potholders and towels that I never use, because I like them to be pretty. I keep utility potholders in a drawer and use those because once they get yucky I just toss them.
1 large t-shirt ( old towels and flannel shirts work great too ) you can get 2 potholders out of a large sized tee.
1 pair of jeans or a denim shirt or cords
make a template 9x9 out of an old cereal box, use a thread spool to round the corners of the square.
1. Cut 4 pieces of denim and about 10 inches of a flatfelled seam, this will be the outside and the hanging loop of the potholder. Cute 8 squares out of the t-shirt

2. Put one piece of denim rsd and layer with 4 pieces of the t-shirt fabric ( if the denims super thick 3 pieces of tees enough ). Baste the tee fabric to the denim with a 1/4 seam. Trim the excess tee being careful not to cut the denim.

3. Take a 5 inch piece of the trimmed flatfelled seam make a loop and baste it to the corner of the right side of the denim and tee sandwich.

4. Take the leftover piece of denim and place it rst with the denim and loop piece. Pin all around and be sure to leave and opening.

5. Stitch with a 3/8 seam turn rso use a chopstick to poke out the corners and press well tucking in the opening.

6. Topstitch 1/4 inch from the edge and then from corner to corner.
