Daily Update - October 19, 2021
What am I Doing?
I am working on the new Hand Stitching Sewing Case and hope to have it finished in a few days. The new case I make will look a little different and hopefully you can use your sewing machine througout the whole process. The one in the photo has a lot of hand stitching on it to put it all together so I have to make some changes as to what materials I use. I don't want the ridges around the top and bottom and I want the zipper to be different. It will be the same size and shape but made in a different way.
Since this month is October, I will be featuring all of the Halloween related patterns whether they are always free or not.
On Saturday, I celebrated my Grandson's 2nd birthday! I took the day off to be with him, my husband, my son and his wife since I could not be there for his actual birthday party. He turned 2 on October 15 but his birthday party was set for Sunday October 17.
This pattern is Free October 19th only!
This granny square is fun and easy to make. The popcorn stitches represent pumpkins and are made with 6 treble crochets in one stitch instead of the traditional 4 or 5 dc.
Featured Bead Sheet
This bead sheet is Always Free.
I know this was recently featured in August but since it is October, I thought it deserved to be featured again.
This bead sheet was made with the same photo as the Straw Pile bead sheet but instead I took a portion of it and made a Kaleidoscope with it. You can combine beads made with this sheet with black, brown or red stone or glass beads for a very rustic and pretty effect.
This bag is fast and easy to make and is modeled after those plastic shopping bags that you get when you go shopping in those big box stores. Video Coming Soon!
This Week's Tip
Dispensing 2 Types of Glue
Since I make paper beads and sew, I use two different types of glue, washable and non washable. I keep the glue in 2oz bottles that are the same. So in order to be able to tell them apart, when they happen to be close to each other, I wrapped a 5.25" piece of colorfully printed duct tape on each bottle. I have one that has tie dye colored duct tape on it for the washable school glue and the other one has Zebra print that I use for All Purpose Glue.
