Craft Corner

My sister was moving into a smaller place and she gave me some great things.  Being that she is a crafter too most was for making things.  When I got home I realized I needed to reorganize to make room.

I was able to clean out a corner to call my craft corner.  It was an awesome day!  She gave me the peg board she made. She framed it and painted a saying on the board.  I have enough room for my sewing machine and serger and even enough to put my kids sewing machine there too!

I found a shelf and some old jars I painted years ago that were perfect for my buttons in our storage.  Some baskets from the Dollar Store.  I got a slacks hanger and some boxes from the clearance section at TJMaxx.

I found this Tutorial on how to make your own bolts for fabrics. I already had the boards but you can get them at the Dollar Store as well.  One board makes 8 bolts.

KCWC Day 6: Teaching daughter to sew

My daughter has a sewing machine that she got from her aunt a few years back.  Lately it hasn’t been working well for her.  I happen to go to my local fabric store and they had a sale on sewing machines.  I decided to surprised my girls with it all set up and ready to use after school.  When I got home from work she requested that I teach her to sew the shorts that I was going to make her today. So today I made a pattern for her, and helped to trace the pattern onto her fabric and sew it together on her new sewing machine.  She was so excited she was tell her sister that she wanted to make her something.  She also said “Mom why aren’t you an artist?” he-he  gotta love looking through kids eyes.
