The Weekly List
i accomplished all of my sewing goals this week, plus some more! i finished M's camp pillow, made 70 more low volume HSTs, and not only started but finished a frame wallet for the post-Sewing Summit Swap.
last night after i grabbed a burger for dinner, i decided to check out a new dollar store that opened up near my house. i spent a good hour wandering around and found a couple of great items - a package of 10 full page label sheets, a package of tracing paper and one of graph paper, a trio of small glass "cookie" jars, and some other stuff. in the last area of the store, though, i hit the jackpot! i found a wallet made with a metal frame that had a separate front and back! it was made from some hideous plaid vinyl, but i could see the potential!
i came home, unscrewed the frame, deconstructed the wallet, and re-created it in super cute fabrics for my post-Sewing Summit Swap partner. i hope she likes it!
sunday afternoon, i decided to tackle a bigger project - cleaning out my spice cupboard. M and i both love to cook, and we have a ton of spices. they share a cabinet with prescription meds, pain relievers, vitamins and things like cupcake liners! while it's still not perfect, it is a whole lot better!
i also had time to whip up a few fabric labels using jacey's tutorial.
while jacey embroidered hers, i'm too lazy for that and i just stamped mine! i even cut into a hoarded fat quarter of laurie wisbrun's christmas donkey fabric! needless to say, i'll be reclaiming these and reusing them next year.
goals for this week:
---> make second set of felt animal ornaments
---> trim low volume HSTs
---> make a few more christmas presents
what are YOU trying to get done this week?
