How to make your own protective case. I was so excited when I received my Kindle 2 that I wanted to show it to everyone. Problem was...Amazon didn't include a temporary pouch! I ran upstairs, found some fabric and made my own pouch over night.
Next Saturday, April 6 from 2:00-4:00 PM, I’ll be joining the wonderful Rebecca Ringquist (who I’ve never met!) and my good friends from Creativebug to co-host a Crafternoon event at the New York Public Library.
Everyone has a cute apron, right? Well, not my mom, and it was her birthday.
This is really so easy I just can't stand it! materials needed: 2 half yard pieces of co-ordinating fabrics 2 big buttons Cut: 1 square 16X16 inches. This is going to be the center of the apron.
I just love the way I feel in a cute apron!
Home / Crafts / 50+ Free Apron Patterns You Can Make [Updated 2012] Here’s a treat for Tipnut readers, three free booklets packed full of apron patterns! I’ve scanned, re-typed and organized over 50 vintage goodies from my personal collection and organized them into separate eBooks for you to download (they are in pdf format).
After the two wingchairs I found at the side of the road sale were slip covered in antique ticking I found that I still had tons of fabric left. There were a few areas on the fabric that no matter how hard I tried to remove the rust spots, they never completely faded away. I thought about how I could use these pieces of fabric. An apron seemed like a good choice because in all honesty, I am a bit clumsy when cooking. It never fails that I splatter something on myself when whipping up something in the kitchen. Which is why I always wear an apron .
I thought with all my home renovations projects (found here and here ), you might be ready for something different! I mean, my blog is supposed to be a little of everything :) So, a sewing post is in order. A friend on mine has a very talented mom who made this super cute apron; I knew I wanted to copy it, and put my own spin on it!
Well gosh, this picture came out blurry. Sorry. Anyway, you get the picture. I'm too tired to go take another shot!
I have a deep and abiding love for Ric Rac. If you were to peek into my stash, which I do not recommend, you would think I was saving up for a global Ric Rac shortage. Other people, they buy a pack of gum or TicTac’s every time they go to the store. Nope, not me. I’m Ric Rac all the way.
