Bra Fix for Better Side Coverage

I love these bras but, like a lot of bras, they do not sufficiently cover my side boob. Yes, I said boob because that is what I call the extra that escapes under my armpit. When I was young, I didn’t have this but as I aged, my little…er not so little…birdies drifted. I haveContinue reading “Bra Fix for Better Side Coverage”

Homage to My Favorite Authors

I did this quilt to pay homage to some of my favorite authors and series. It was something I did for the pure enjoyment of doing. I usually make things for other people or something that serves a practical purpose if it is for myself. If you have read any of my blogs, you probablyContinue reading “Homage to My Favorite Authors”

Upcycled Box with Partition

Who else saves boxes with the intention of doing something really great with it? My spice bottles came in this and I immediately knew I wanted it to organize all my reading glasses. It sat on my dresser for months. I finally decided to stop a huge project that I have been working on andContinue reading “Upcycled Box with Partition”

Easy Sew Grocery Bag

I decided to try making some that would hold up way better than store bought cheapies. I found someContinue reading “Easy Sew Grocery Bag”

DIY Christmas Card with Window

Why buy a card for less than a dollar when you can spend a ton of money and time making your own? Because I love handmade gifts and appreciate when someone goes through the effort to make a card. Card making is something that I have never been able to do well but I amContinue reading “DIY Christmas Card with Window”

He’s 13 now and still asks me to make him another one but I cannot get into crocheting lately so I decided to make one out of fleece instead. I decided to make HarryContinue reading “Making Harry Potter Inspired Fleece Scarves”

Making a Padded Tablet Case

I learned a lot of things not to do on this project. I’m making two for two of my grandsons and the second one will be much better so I hope one grandchild doesn’t get upset that his looks a little different. First, let me apologize for not taking photos of the first few steps.Continue reading “Making a Padded Tablet Case”

DIY Pin Cushion on a Canister

I had to stop all my projects to make a pin cushion. The pin cushion I was using was lopsided and hard so every time I pulled a pin out while I was sewing, I had to stop to wrestle with the pin cushion. It was seriously messing with my flow. Now, you would thinkContinue reading “DIY Pin Cushion on a Canister”
