What am I Doing?

Hand Sewing Case

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 throughout 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 crocheted pumpkin canister is made with a recycled plastic large coffee can. It is fun and easy to make and can be completed in a couple of evenings. You can use it to store Halloween Treats for your Halloween party. It would look festive as a centerpiece on your Fall table.

Whether you want to make beads for Halloween or some other time of year, using this bead sheet for beads would be great for any piece of jewelry you want to use orange beads for. I would combine them with either black, green, brown, red, white, yellow or clear beads.

This Week's Tip

Glue Bottles

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.
