My life is just a bunch of unfinished projects that I'm determined to finish. Today is Friday, May 26, 2017

Babies and more babies (for Carley)


It seems like every other week a baby is being born to someone I know. Sheesh! I'm over it AND baby showers. Here's what I made for the shower on Saturday. It's about 36 in X 36 in. It'll be great for tummy time on the floor or couch. Carley and her hub are waiting to find out the gender of the baby. This was the only non gender specific fabric I could find at Joann's. :)


For Christina


I made this a while ago but forgot to post it. Christina loved my planner and wanted one with the bumble bee. Here's what was created. :D


Finally! Sheesh.


After putzing around for the past few weeks and NOT making myself a planner cover, I finally got around to it last night. I used the same idea as Whit's planner cover since it gave the best looking cover. If you're wondering, I got the actual planner from Target. It's a spiral-bound refill for the Franklin Covey 365 line of planners. :)


Yellow Obsession


I'm not sure why, but I'm obsessed with the look of black, grey, white and yellow. I have a cute purse from Kohl's with the color scheme and decided to make another one. I used another Keyka Lou pattern for it.

The fun thing about this project is that the fabric cost less than $2 (thanks, Walmart!) and the zipper was about $1.50. So, it's less than $5 to make! This took about 5 hours to make for the first time. Next time I make it, I could probably cut the time down to 3.5 to 4 hours. I don't know if it would be lucrative to make and sell. Hm.

Anyway, I couldn't resist taking this picture while I was working on this purse. She's adoreable when asleep but hell when awake.


Why yes, those *are* elephants.


I guess I'm getting the sewing bug back again! 
I went looking for patterns today and found this woman's (http://www.keykaloupatterns.com/) wonderful site!

Here's one thing I made today from her patterns.



Classroom: Ugly Lab Table Project


Yesterday, I showed y'all how ugly the lab table was. I wish I had remembered to take a whole slew of before pictures but here's a reminder anyway.

Gross, right? Well, my suitemate, Shirley helped me to put contact paper down on the top and I sewed up some more panel curtains to hide the contents of the table. It was supposed to have doors but I got the crappy one. Ugh. I'm so over this school year and it hasn't even started yet. Anyway, on with the pictures! I like it and it looks much better in person!

Yes, those are the Super Colorful Plastic Goggles of Science in the blue bucked on the left. There is no limit to there awesome power! I love goggles!!! 


Classroom: Curtains Project


This school year I've been moved from my wonderful humongous science lab into a small rinky dink trailer portable classroom. I feel like I've been exiled but I'm trying to make the best of it.  If I'm thinking positively (which is super hard), at least I have a window now. I can see the sunlight during the day! Hooray!

To temper the extreme sunlight (still Hooray!), I made curtains for my tiny jail cell super cute window. This was the first time I made curtains but I knew that I didn't want the froo froo kind. I made simple panels and  I like the result.

You can't see the fabric very well but look below. It's super cute! I love dots! And waves in dots??? ::swoooon::


I also have the super ugly lab table/cart from the 70's that I made look a bit better. That post will come tomorrow. For now, here's a hint of what it looked like (eek!). The top is that ugly mustardy color and the wood is like fake laminate. And it smells like freaking formaldehyde. ::hurl:: Nasty!


Planner Cover (for Whit)


I really haven't done as many projects this summer as I would have liked. It's ok though because now that the school year is starting, I have a ton!

Today alone, I made two sets of curtains (pictures coming once I put them in my classroom) and a planner cover for my good friend Whitney. I used this tutorial (http://bloomandblossom.blogspot.com/2009/02/journal-cover-tutorial.html) and this is the end result. :D I kind of like how it turned out.

I still have to make my own but I'm having a hard time picking out the fabrics I want to use. My stash is a bit ridiculous right now.


Flash Storybook


Here's what I put together after my Fri/Sat class with what I learned in Adobe Flash. :D



Thanks Mo!


My bday is tomorrow (yay!) and I've been staring at a package from my sister since Monday. So, I begged her to let me open it today. And inside was a new GPS for me. Hooray! So, of course, I had to make something to protect it.
