I can’t help myself sometimes. I just have to see how things go together.
I buy makeup when there’s some free swag in the deal, and one day I got samples in a little zipper case. I wanted to see how hard these are to make, so I ripped apart one and recreated it into this version. I have to say, though, it wasn’t all that easy working vinyl in this way. I used clear thread and tried to get the fabric to run smoothly under the foot on my sewing machine. It didn’t go all that well. This is my first and last make up bag in using this type of pattern. Regardless, I am happy with the result and carry my on-the-go makup in this bag instead of the one I got at the counter.
A circle die, wool felt and a sewing machine can make wonders. Follow this link to a picture tutorial: felt-scarf-tutoroal

Not your typical Halloween decoration, I like this for its subtle reference to Edgar Allen Poe’s poem “The Raven.” I bought an old book and cut butterflies to add interest. Download a PDF of the the pattern for the Raven >>
This table runner was made using the YUDU, images from the Happy Hauntings cartridge and a painters drop cloth. (The images were cut on the Cricut and burned onto a screen for printing.) Cut the drop cloth down to size. Hem. Screen print with images. Spray with wrinkle release and bunch up. Ironically the wrinkle release does a pretty good job of holding the wrinkles, and it gives the runner a great Halloween effect.
