Good morning! Does anyone else love Pinterest a little too much? I just love looking for ideas and tutorials. Lately I’ve been looking at fabric crafts and decided to make some postcards. These were really a lot of fun to make. I did mess up a bit, but not enough to ruin anything. Lol - - - live and learn. Here’s what I made. Some are in a plastic sleeve already. (These jellyfish were inspired by Krebsbachhuber Crafts)  (These beach houses were inspired by Stitches by Julia) On the beach scenes I attached seashells. Wish I had some starfish ⭐️ . So many stores in town have cl ..read more

Mini Booklets
Beyond the Fringe

Good morning! Today I’m bringing you some more mini booklets I made up. These ones are all already sold to a lady who likes to use them as little “just because” gifts for her friends and family. I make these using the Zutter Bind-it All, but there are multiple ways you can bind these if you’d like to try to make some. I’m hoping to make more soon.  The photo above was sent to the lady who purchased them. As you can see, each had a different amount of pages. This was due to the paper packs I used - - some had more choices than others for this size of booklet.  Here is a photo o ..read more

Going Natural with Miracle Salve

Hi there, Is anyone else feeling like you’d just like to get back to basics? I know I do. I’ve looked at the ingredient lists in cosmetics and creams & lotions and decided I’m going to make my own from now on whenever I can.  I bought a few books in the spring on herbal recipes and benefits of natural remedies. Since I used to make soap, I’m familiar with the benefits of essential oils, but not as familiar with herbs, teas and other helpful remedies.  In the spring I made an antihistamine cream, an eye serum and an oil for cooling hot flashes. I wrote out the uses for it o ..read more

Good morning crafters!  Today I have a cupcake pattern that can be made into a mug rug, a coaster, or whatever you choose to use it on. A T-shirt maybe? Your imagination is the limit. Mine was part of a birthday gift. I chose to turn it into a mugrug, and I’ll include a template for the cupcake below.  It is a pretty simple piece to make. All I needed was some scrap fabric and batting.  The completed mugrug For this mugrug I used mostly materials I had on hand.  Supplies: Cupcake pattern (below) Fabric scraps for cupcake base and frostings, cherry or hear ..read more

C2C Cupcake Security Blanket Free Pattern
Beyond the Fringe

It’s December first and true to the time of year, it is freezing outside. BRRRR!  The best place to be is inside where it’s warm and cozy. I’ve been using this time to sew, crochet and make cards. Today I will share one of my cupcake themed projects with you.  This is a corner to corner security blanket. When completed it is 25”x20”, which is a bit larger than a typical security blanket. You could make it smaller by removing 2 or 3 rows all around, or add more rows to the outside and turn it into a stroller blanket at 30”x35.” It’s so easy to do that with these graph patterns. I’m ..read more

Christmas Bookmark Cards

Last year I found a cute stamp on Pinterest called “Peaceful Night” from Woodward Crafts. It was too late to do anything at the time, but I ordered it and kept it for this year.  These stamps are beautiful on cards done up with only gold or silver embossing powder, but I decided on white embossing powder and then painted them.  I made the cards about the size of the clear stamp itself and ended up with a very slim card, about 6 1/2“(folded to 3 1/4) by 8 1/2”. I cut out an even slimmer inside panel wide enough to use the greeting which also came with the stamp. Since I only ha ..read more

Caught the Sewing Bug!

It seems my craft preferences change with the season and lately I’ve been hit with the sewing bug.  I had started a “quilt by the month” quilting pattern by Suzy’s Sitcom, and then almost got it finished when I grew tired of it. I finally picked it up again this summer, completed it and posted it on this blog.  After that I made a softie, a pillowcase, doll clothes, bowl cozies and a mugrug. Now I find myself looking at free and paid sewing patterns all over the web. I’ve also reorganized my craft space and added a separate sewing area. I think I’m in for the long haul. To catch ..read more

I’m sitting in my room listening to the raindrops outside my window. More sunny days will comebut Fall is on its way and I’m ok with that.  For the last year I’ve been working on and off - on a quilt from a pattern by Suzy at Suzy’s Sitcom. I highly recommend this blog especially if you like to sew, but also for other crafts. She has a Facebook page called Suzy’s Crafters and Quilters if you’d rather follow that way.  She offers many patterns for free monthly. Every month there was a new block available for free, for a month. If you missed it, you could pick it up for $5 after the ..read more

Hello! As promised, I’m back with some fabric cards. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what I can make to put in a card to encourage….a mini care package. In my last post I mentioned watercolor bookmarks with a pack of tea. I think I may elaborate on that and make some fabric bookmarks too. I’ve been looking for ideas and trying to come up with my own patterns. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to show you what I’ve come up with. Meanwhile, here’s todays fabric cards.  The first one is a bit different from my usual. I hope to improve on it. I’ve embellished it with metallic thread and a ..read more

Stamperia Leftovers Cards

Hello all! Today I have some Stamperia cards, watercolor bookmarks (in progress) and a little idea.  A while back I bought a bunch of Stamperia pads and they didn’t disappoint. In fact, the cards I’m about to show you were made from mostly bits and pieces that were left over. I usually make larger cards, but these are smaller cards, which are nice to give too.  I cut out the little teacups, the birds, the heart and the love sign and applied them with foam tape. This one was super simple. It’s just two flat layers with a popped up flower. This one was embellished with a m ..read more
