Liberty and I ran in a 5K called the Run or Dye. I wanted to make a shirt from an inspiration that I had found on Pinterest. I figured we could make one up. I wanted one that said Walk instead of Run. So I found a website that could make the words how ever you want. It is Tagxedo , try it, I know you will like it.
These two shirts were a gift for Kirsten's teacher that was getting married during the summer. I figured it was a pretty good gift for a teacher that wasn't something that would just be put in the next goodwill box. I am not sure that I am good at putting the things on the shirts but this was a pretty fun experiment.
Here is a tote bag that I started probably over a year ago. It has been sitting in my "unfinished projects" bin while I am making many other things. The other day there was a lull in my sewing and crafting projects and I pulled the bin out and finished this. It turned out pretty good. I used the tutorial at Crap I Made to get the pattern and the instructions how to make. I added pockets on the inside and made the front two fabrics, to make it interesting. Sorry about the bright sunshine in the picture.
So when I got done with the above tote bag I had left over fabric and since I am making things to sell at Helping Hallie Halloween 5K and Bazaar Fundraiser in October. I made these cute pumpkins. They turned out pretty cute. I used the tutorial at Handmade Homebody. I made the leaf from a piece of fabric and Googled pumpkin leaves to get a general idea of the shape. I think they are pretty cute. I especially love the corduroy one.
For our trip in June I wanted a place to store my flat iron and curling iron. My plan was to make two different containers but when I got this one finished it fit both. It is made with the insulbrite to keep it from burning through the fabric. It turned out pretty cute. I got the tutorial from Home a la mode.
This picture is not good, and I am having a hard time getting a good picture with the light and the sunshine, etc. So sorry in advanced for the poor picture quality. But I love this statement and wanted it to be on my wall. So I figured out the spacing and used my favorite tool - the Silhouette Cameo - and made this for my wall. I don't think that the paint vs. vinyl thing almost made me stop doing it. But I got it done and every time I look at it, I LOVE IT!
I have made some 12x12 tiles with my Silhouette Cameo. I saw this tutorial on you-tube and have figured out how to make these. The two fonts are Regal font for the more open font and the darker filled in font is Fleur Corner Caps. I really like the darker one better. My daughter thinks the Regal font is better. Oh well, we can disagree - right?
I found a pallet on the side of the road and Dave has been trying to get the boards off so I can make some signs. I just wanted to show a project I am thinking of making for Helping Hallie Halloween 5K and Bazaar Fundraiser that I have coming up in October.
This is a sample of what I want to put on the above boards. This is board is pretty small 4 inches by 13 inches. But my laundry room is small and so it will fit just perfectly above my washer. I totally love the part about not being responsible for lost socks. I swear my kids socks never make it to the laundry in the first place. There is always many missing socks.
