Here's my entry for the Dollar Store Supply Placemat Craft Challenge!
This is a Dopp Bag aka Toiletry Bag aka Something To Put Your Shower Stuff In :)
It's due earlier than the pillowcase challenge so I hurried.

Another Interesting Challenge and Fabric for the First Challenge

I love to make things out of placemats! But so far I can't see this one in my head...still thinking!

Now this one I can see already (although things seldom ever turn out the way I see them!) Here are the fabrics I picked out for the All People Quilt Quarterly Challenge. This one's a stash buster too! The fabric is a $2.50 markdown and the denim came from a clearance chair cover :)

I Ran Across This Challenge The Other Day...

I ran across this challenge the other day and it keeps rolling around in my head. I think I may give it a try!

Whatever Happened to Spool?

Well, I got sick, and then I was in the hospital, and then it took forever to recuperate. But I am back. If anyone was doing the 3D Applique Project, let me know and I'll finish it up as a pdf...the Tshirt I was using is already too small for my daughter. They grow so fast!

Maybe I'm kidding myself and no one noticed my absence :)

So, back to business. I have no projects in the works yet. I did grab the name Spoolishness on Etsy and thought I might make some kits. I get bored too fast making things over and over, and I am usually not comfortable with my first attempts to sell them. But I can make an easy to follow tute, so I'm considering tutes with supplies (erm, that would be kits, right?).

June Craft Challenge is Fishy!

Here's my entry for Christy's June Craft Challenge! A Fish Closet Pommander. Just add herbs inside the tail fin (yes, up his butt) and hang for a sweet smelling closet.

Btw, I was one of the winner's last month (Chisty's pick, awww *blush*). We have a challenge vacation next month, but come join us for August!

This month's packet contained an empty toilet paper roll. Just for the record, the roll is inside the fishy holding the packet of herbs in place :)

Here are some curtains I made for Sadie to keep the spookies at bay...

Christy's Craft Challenge May

All done with my Craft Challenge entry for May! Click the link to join us next month!
I made these slippers by wrapping paper around my feet, then smoothing out the paper to cut the fabric. They were fun to make but a little too fiddly for a tute. Here are a few pics anyway :)

Watch for classes coming soon. The first class is a freebie!

I love these! I've been wearing them ever since I finished them and they feel great!
