A Strange Weekend List

This weekends list is a little strange since a little imagination is need to keep it interesting. I have also tried to use some funny photos to keep it at least entertaining, so please don't fall asleep until then end. On to the strange list....
(1) This bunch of shredded paper will hopefully become my Christmas Card. I won't share exactly what I am going to create since I am not sure yet! This will be a trial and error or it might just be kindling for a fire!
(2) Caulk the bathroom. Now this sounds really exciting but I found a super easy way to make it straight and clean. You see we updated our bathroom 3 years ago and ever since I have been trying to get a straight and clean caulk line between the wall and tile. Only to end up with caulk everywhere,including my face and very wavy line.

(3) Man Cave vs Woman Cave. Well this is actually Home Theater vs Craft room and a solution to how stop the interference between both caves. This is a fun one and easy solution, just need to start it.

(4) Lastly and the best item on the list. I am getting very close to 100 Followers and this is very exciting to me since I have be blogging for 1 1/2 years and only had about 2 followers for the first year. Thank you all for following and commenting, it inspires me to keep creating and makes me feel a little less nerdy. So once I hit 100 Followers, I will be holding a fabulous giveaway! I am thinking it will include something that I have created along with some craft supplies or book and possibly a gift card. I am still working on the details since I am not sure when I will reach the magic number. So have a lovely weekend and come back next week! Enjoy!

Ipad Pillow Stand

I like to watch tutorials on my Ipad and although I have a cover that converts to a stand, it isn't always the best solution for viewing. So I decided to make one of my own inspired by these Iphone stands I found on Etsy. They are sold by dognamedbanjo and are really unique and lovely. So I thought I could make one similar to it and here is how i did it. First I started with a 1 yard of a fabric in my two favorite colors. Then I cut the following pieces 1 Pc 13" x 13" 1 pc 29 x 13" 2 Triangle pieces 13" x 13" x 13" Next I sewed the top square to the two triangles. This is will be the sides and the base. Next I took the large rectangular piece and sewed it to the bottom of the square. Now I don't have photos of the last few steps since once it start forming a pillow it is difficult to photograph, but the process is not that difficult. Next I sewed each side of the the rectangle to one side of the triangle on both sides. Then repeated the same proc…

Neck Tie Upcycled to Cuff

I found a large stash of Neck ties at an Estate Sale this past weekend and I had to buy them since I had the perfect idea for an upcycle project. They were mostly from a long since closed store here in Buffalo,NY and I felt the need to preserve them as well as the tags. I started by washing them on gentle and removing them immediately and laying flat to dry. They came out a little disfigured but nothing that a little ironing wouldn't fix. Next I took a seam ripper and opened up the back to take out the interfacing. I did this for two reasons, it was discolored and had a little odor and it would be easier to sew without this bulk.  I next cut the tie into a piece 10" long and hemmed the edge. Then I sewed two pieces of velcro to each side to make my cuff. The last step was to sew on a few antique buttons and beads and my cuff was done. Wow! Looking at this I can't believe how it turned out!.But wait... I made a few more! Love this one.. Antique Maple leave button and golden bead! …

T-shirt Upcycle to Cardigan

I have had this large long sleeved t-shirt for about a year. I paid $2.99 for it at the Salvation Army and appeared to be new. I had thought about embellishing it with a flower or two but could not come up with a original or cute idea so I decided to make a cardigan out of it. So lets get started and upcycle another piece of clothing! First I laid the shirt out and measured from under arm to under arm to find the exact center.
Once I found the center, I cut right up the middle. This step always makes me nervous ever since I was a child and tried to cut a collar on a coat to make it narrower. It was a disaster but I try not to think about it that much and just cut. Once it was cut, I decided to use the hem from another t-shirt that I had cut up for another project.  I cut two pieces of the hem of the t- shirt long enough to cover the edge of the cardigan and wrap around the top and bottom edge. I folded over the edge and pinned Then I pinned it to one side of the cardigan. Making sure to f…
