Wand Get Crafty! (June 2014)

I'm still struggling to find crafting time, but I have great hopes! My parents are moving out of our basement soon, so I'm hoping to get my supplies set up somewhere more accessible. The kids love to be crafty as well, so that's a good excuse to make time this summer. My daughter had a big haircut (9 inches!) in May, so I'd like to get back to making things for her hair.

What are your crafty goals this month?

I have a mile long list & I'm thinking the summer with kids will finally knock some things off my list... I have 3 girls the 2 older ones are out of hairbows & my oldest is the one that got me started... My 5 yr has worn only a few I've made so I gave up along time ago... Now I have around 100+ rolls of ribbon not including the ones purchased by the yard... Then 2 shoebox totes full of bows....for yrs I've wanted to start my own business so hopefully a lil girl will come along that gets some use of al these accessories....
Tomorrow will be the first official day summer vacation and I know it won't be long before I hear how bored they are... So I will have to push my craft to do list aside again & make use of all those pins on pininterest...I hope they turn out like it says yet when things decide not to it's usually do to operator malfunction...
So good luck to you and hope that your summer is filled with crafts galore...I'm sorry for getting carried away with this post... One of my bad habits...have a wonderful summer!

I got to sew today. Woo hoo. I will have to take pics later to share. We are getting 2 guinea pigs this summer so I made stuff for them. Two tunnels to run through and four little sleeping bag things for them to cuddle in. Fleece remnants at joanns are awesome when fleece is half off.

Can't wait to see . When I was in grade school we had those in our classroom and each kid had to take turns taking them home over the weekend. My mom would never let me

Pictures. 2 tunnels and 4 different size cuddling pouches. Nothing is entirely coordinated since I am using leftovers and remnants.

Tried to make a reversible tunnel this morning. Was probably a little tired. Wound up with a two tone cowl instead.

Great projects! I especially love the colors in that 50's tablecloth. I finally got my behind in gear the past week. This is a journal from Michael's I bought for 50 cents. The cover wasn't bad, but a little thin and not my initial. I mod podged a wallpaper sample to cover the outside. It has a nice texture to it.

Not the best lighting but this is a wreath I made last night. It's a foam form and I cut a ton of fabric squares/rectangles (no measuring) with pinking shears. Then you push a chopstick into the middle of a square and into the foam. Since I was planning to use it on the front door I dabbed a dot of turbo tacky glue in each hole first.

My daughter is having a rainbow birthday party this weekend and requested some sort of rainbow clothing so bought a tshirt and appliqued a rainbow on the front.

My 7 year old and I also made a sort-of model of the Great Wall of China (we homeschool and do year round). It was a lot of fun to build together (even though we ran out of blocks and didn't get to finish).

I've also managed to check some of my sewing projects off: a wallet (it was supposed to hold my cards and my iPhone but I didn't take the Otterbox into account, so the phone won't fit), a case for my Kindle, and a case for my sunglasses. I also made a travel organizer for my jewelry.

Super cute sewing projects. The colors and prints of the fabrics are so fun and cheery. The wall looks amazing. For a minute I thought it might be made out of rice crispy treats. My husband would love that.

I bought a desk off Craigslist, so I want to cover that with old letters I bought from a flea market using Mod Podge, and I also want to paint some canvases with quotes or stencil work.

That's exactly what I want to do! These letters are from the late 40s, early 50s between a man stationed in Puerto Rico and his wife in Vermont - a cute love story. My desk is a secretary desk, so I hope it adds some character to it.

I saw instructions on Pinterest for doing tie dye with watered down acrylic craft paints. Right up my alley! I'm afraid of dye and bleach but paint I can handle. These are two stained or worn out hand me downs. I did them myself to see how it goes but next time I'll probably let the kids have a try at it. They're still drying in the sun here, but I'll wash and dry tonight or tomorrow and update.

Forgot to update as I said I would. They dry pretty stiff in the sun, but I ran them on high in the dryer for about 15 minutes to set the color, then ran them through the washer and dryer and they were as soft as any other clothing. I posted pics of the pillowcases I did next in the July thread.
