Get Crafty (January 2015)

New Year, New Crafty Goals!

Along with plans for organizing and cleaning, I am making goals for crafting. I still need to tidy up the craft closet for better function. I also got a sewing machine!

I have several projects in mind for this month, but my main goal us to spend at least 2 hours per week making beautiful things. I will also make a list of projects and post it in my craft closet so I can visually see my goals and get the satisfaction of marking them off when completed.

What are your crafty goals for January?

I'm a bit late getting started, but my goal is to provide the kids with a specific project one day each week to get those creative juices flowing.

and for me, more sewing. I need to get better at it. I would also like to learn to knit.

One DD's bday is this month so I made some pretty flag banners out of colored paper to hang around the house. She loves party decorations. I'll try to get a pic once they're up.

I am planning to try to make some American Girl doll clothes soon. I've printed some free patterns and I have plenty of my kids' outgrown clothes to use as fabric (and take advantage of hems already being done!) but it's finding the time to sit and do it.

My main goal this month is to finish every project I start. I'm horrible about that!

I finally (!) redid a pair of sheets I bought in a deal a year ago, maybe two years ago, I don't even remember, it's been so long. They were sheets for a regular bed, all I needed to do was sew the bottoms together and check the fit to make them waterbed sheets. I did that on the last day before Christmas vacation ended, and they are on our bed now.

I also took an old exercise leotard I had from my 1980's jane fonda days which I have no business wearing now that I am in my 50's. I repurposed it into a bicycle helmet cover for days with light rain/snow, chilly wind.

before and after photos attached.

Thanks! I used the directions here for making a pattern that would fit my helmet: Make a sewing pattern from a packing tape mould

And the elastic from one of the leg holes was the perfect size for attaching around the bottom edge.

Great idea, Jakejake! Love the creativity and thought process into taking something old and changing it's appears into something new.

I made a shirt today for myself that I may wear to hubbys christmas party romorrow. It is green and gold mardi gras print, thought it would be a nice way to cheer on my Packers too.


Also made a little take along bag for my daughter. The pinterest idea used ziplocs for the pockets but that didn't seem durable enough to me. So I sewed lined zipper pockets for it, but they wouldn't all fit so I could only use 2.

Hey Ladies, I have been MIA...Happy New Year. I was in school last year so crafting was the last thing on my list. So far this month I have made three crotchet head wraps for my girls. I also made a charm bracelet with Archangels on it. I will try to upload a pic later.

I want to make journals and get a few crotchet projects done.

Not very crafty, but organizing my craft supplies instead. Found a use for the crib! I could probably fill the other side panel as well. I also realize I have so many baby flannel prints that I have no need for any more. That deserves a cry and a wahoo!

I have about 20 pairs of wool mittens that are in various stages of production right now, as soon as they are done, they will be photographed and listed on etsy. Then I am moving on to making reusable grocery bags out of old feed sacks. Kind of intimidated cuz it's a new project, but I'm sure they'll be fine after a practice run (or two or three)

I just made two more playdoh colors for my girls. I use this recipe w just a touch less oil: http://pinterest.com/pin/86694361552190727/ I've had one batch turn out a bit too sticky but cutting back to about 3/4 tbsp oil has worked better. The red was colored with just a fruit punch flavor Kool aid packet and the green was food coloring drops. It lasts for several month wrapped in plastic wrap or in a plastic tub.
