2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Sewing Machine Cover (w/ link to tut) on: September 30, 2012 06:28:14 AM
I recently found a link on Pinterest on preventive sewing machine maintenance ( http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/4731/preventive-sewing-machine-maintenance )and I realized that there are several things I haven't been doing.  One being covering up my machine when not in use so that dust, critter hair and other floaties don't end up gumming up my working parts.  So I found a bangin' tutorial on YouTube from the Crafty Gemeni channel that was so easy to follow.  My end result isn't perfect, but I love it dearly and it of course serves its purpose. 

It was my first time using fusible fleece, and making a quilt binding -- which turned out to be quite simple and easier than I had always imagined.  Would love your feedback! =)

Amazing isn't even an adequate word to describe this!  You are an amazing artist!  I would love to have one of these for my own, but I know I probably couldn't afford your creativity, and I have two left hands for sculpting anything. =(  For now I will be happy to admire the skill of another. =)

These are great!  Good cause too.  I found a tutorial on YouTube from the Missouri Quilt Co. that did one on pillowcases. Since seeing that video, I have been making them on my off days to give as Christmas presents. =) I love them!  They'lre fool proof and look amazing when you're done.

Yum!  Made mine tonight - looks heavenly!  Can't wait until tomorrow night to break it out with my husband and some friends. =)
6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Best place to trade/sell crafty remnants online? on: September 15, 2012 09:55:55 PM
I am cleaning out my craft stash and have lots of fabric and things that I'd like to unload, but don't know where to sell or trade it.  What kind of places do you folks know of online to connect with other crafty people that I can do this?  I don't want to give it away as I've invested a lot of $$ in it, but would be interested in trading?  I would appreciate any suggestions!  =)
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Bathroom Shelf from Martha Stewart inspiration!! on: August 22, 2012 08:20:22 PM
Quick back story:   Hubbers and I are preggo with our first baby.  We decided to finish our basement so he can move his man crap out of the second bedroom so we can have a nursery.  The first stage of finishing down there was hooking up ducting for the A/C - in order to do this, we had to sacrifice our hall/linen closet.  (I didn't know this was happening until I came home from work. Sad sad day.  So, for the past several weeks, all my stuff has been accumulating in our bedroom and bathroom and finally, I'd had enough of the clutter.  I found this inspiration on Martha Stewart's website via Pintrest for a shelf over the bathroom door to store stuff.  I loved it, so I made it happen!  =)

1. - Martha's version
2. - My version before/ after
3. - My ugly cluttered bathroom before
4. - My super cute bathroom after

The screws on my shelf aren't perfect, one because I'm extremely impatient and two because I didn't have a level I ruined all my anchors trying to find the right spot and ended up having to use like, 3" drywall screws.  One isn't in all the way because my drill bit was too short.  But anywho, I don't care.  I'm proud that I made this shelf and I have my bathroom back!  I ordered this cool hotel style towel shelf/rack off eBay and my super awesome dad helped me install it. (I NEVER would have gotten that one on my own. It would have ended up in the garbage.)  I hated that toilet organizer.  Makes everything looks way more cluttery.  =)  Let me know what you think!  Next step is finding some cute artwork to put over the towels.

This looks great!  You did a beautiful job and the binding looks very neat.  =)
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Best place to sell a serger? on: August 16, 2012 07:08:33 PM
I have a Babylock Lauren Serger (http://www.babylock.com/a-line/lauren/) that I've had for a couple of years.  I used it a couple of times and lost interest (got frustrated) and put in the cabinet and never used it again.  Now I'm looking for a new home for it, and don't know where to start?  Is there a market for used machines like this?  The Craigslist in my area sucks, so I'm not even going to waste my time.  Any ideas?

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Earring Display for my bathroom on: March 06, 2012 09:07:53 AM
Hi everyone!  Within the past year or so, I have gotten addicted to earrings.  Don't know why, but now I have a lot of them.  Anyway, I hate putting them in a jewelry box because they get jumbled around with everything else and stuff gets lost and so on and so forth.  So, I had the idea to create this to display my ear jewels:

I took a small canvas for painting, put 2 layers of craft batting on top, and then stapled black fabric over it.  I nailed a sawtooth hanger on the back for easy hanging.  I love it!  It serves its purpose well.  The only problem is that the earring hooks are a little too blunt to pierce the fabric, so before I put a new set in, I punch a hole with a thumbtack and then they slide right in!

=)  Yay for solutions to life's little irritations.
