I need to learn how to make those t-shirt bags...I have a box of old t-shirts that are not good enough to give to charity but nice enough not to throw out! Is there a simple link on how to make them?

Sorry about that. I should have included the link. Here ya go: https://www.mommypotamus.com/no-sew-t-shirt-tote-bag-tutorial/?utm_content=buffer118e5&utm_medium=social&utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Sera unravled - that quilt top is amazing! What a gigantic project.  Shocked

I've been busy, I just haven't been posting as I finish things. Swamped with garden planning and birthday parties.

I've been baking:



This shirt started out as a men's dress shirt, and is now a comfy and modest tunic, though still a bit wrinkled, oops:

I turned some t-shirts into tote bags (no-sew method):

My toddler can't keep his little fingers off of the LEGOs, so I had to do something to keep him out of our storage cart. Luckily, I had this awesome fabric from when I wanted to make drapes for our basement windows but never got around to it.  Cheesy :

I also finished off a couple hanging planters for my kitchen window. Nothing planted yet. (I have 4-5 more in various stages of completion , but let's focus on what's actually done. lol):

TansysMaySigh- What a beautiful skirt - so romantic looking.

I made a couple macrame necklaces for my DS1 and myself with various semi-precious stones. His is just like mine, but with rainbow cording.

Yofi, that stand is beautiful - nice work! I have a dresser in that wood that's in need of refinishing, too.

I finished the crochet market bag for my mother-in-law's birthday present. It's lined in cotton jersey. The lace pattern kind of reminds me of the radioactive symbol (hard to see in the picture, though).  Cheesy

I'd love to join, if it's not too late. I haven't been very active on Craftster in quite a while - a second baby added so much...chaos...to the mix.  Wink Love, love, LOVE all of the crafty goodness posted here!

I'll put my list in a separate post.

January Challenges: I've already pared down my crafts to what I have to say are the bare essentials.  Wink The only thing I can say I'm really ready to call it quits with is wet felting. Fun, but not something I really took to. I'll just spin up what fiber I have instead, and chuck the tattered roll of taped-up bubble wrap.

A few of my projects include new stuff. I've never re-finished a piece of wood furniture, crocheted a sweater, or made a baby carrier. I'm also going to be trying pressure canning for the first time this year (does that count?). Also, and I don't know how I'll feel about this in a few months when all my UFOs are hopefully FOs, I want to make a BJD of some sort. Not sure I'll get around to a task that daunting...

Wow! Did you use acrylic paint for this? Maybe this is a silly question but I have no idea what kind of paint people use for denim.

I used UV-reactive acrylic paint (from wildfirefx.com) mixed with fabric medium. You can use plain acrylic paint and fabric medium, though. It just won't glow under blacklight.
20  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Cartoon Craziness Quilt on: January 12, 2016 03:32:59 PM
A few months ago, I transitioned my preschooler from his toddler bed to a full size bed. That meant that he needed a new quilt (he's had to make-do with a couple smaller ones while I worked).

I let him pick out the fabrics, and he chose his favorite characters/shows/movies - Paw Patrol, Doc McStuffins, Mickey, Sponge Bob, Staw Wars, Doctor Who, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Minions, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Cars. I chose the glittery stars and the grey sashing. The back of the quilt is fat quarters in mostly geometric or batik prints in blue/grey/black/white. I figured that his quilt would outlast his love of some of those cartoons.

Everything was stitched on my machine, and I'm thrilled that I was able to shove this massive blanket under the arm while quilting. (My son even chose the shooting star motif that I used.) It ended up being queen-sized, though I was going for over-sized full. Oops.

He was so happy to have it done (and so am I).


Before quilting:

Thanks for looking!
