Running Tights

    Today after work I made my own running tights. They took three hours to make, maybe a new record for me. I had bought a pattern last year and this is my second time using it. I made an awesome pair before but spilled red wine on them. In the past I tried... Continue Reading →

Pop Up Thread Catcher

This weekend past I made a thread catcher. I had found the pattern a while ago but kept putting off making it because I didn't have an embroidery hoop. I finally bought one at Walmart, but it was plastic, so a little more expensive than the wooden kind. Anyway, I'm glad I made the investment... Continue Reading →

Personalized Cat Bed

This week I decided to make a cat bed for my kitty, Killa. I had been thinking about making one for a while, but I wasn't sure how to get the bottom attached to the sides nicely, and I know Killa doesn't normally like cat beds anyway. However, he does like fuzzy, soft blankets, so... Continue Reading →

Applique Beach Towel

This is my finished beach towel. It's folded up so it might be hard to see, but the letters of the name go across the top of the towel. I started this maybe two years ago but never got around to finishing it because I didn't want to cut out the fusible webbing. Turns out it wasn't... Continue Reading →
