Thrifty Stashy SNAP! Swap + Personalized Vintage Notebook

In 9 days I'll be on my way to Utah (for the first time) to attend SNAP! Johnnie from Saved By Love Creations and Amy from Plucking Daisies organized a fun pre-SNAP! meet and greet called Thrifty Stashy SNAP! Swap. Basically, you raid you craft stash and then go to the store for whatever else you may need and send a box of supplies to your partner. My partner for this SNAP! swap was Chrissy from Hoot Designs! Chrissy and I met at Haven last year and have also chatted via twitter. Chrissy has an … [Read more...]

12 Months of Martha — Valentine’s Day Card w/ Lined Envelope

The other day I revealed my first box that I received from a new campaign that I'm participating in this year called the 12 Months of Martha. I'm so excited to share today what I did with some of the gorgeous Valentine's Day supplies. Naturally, when I see paper I instantly want to make a card. I decided I would make a Valentine's Day Card for my 89 year old great-aunt Millie. I like to send her cards for just about every holiday because she is all by herself in a retirement home and I want to … [Read more...]

Dual Heat-N-Bond {Cricut Cut} Onesie

One of my first post on Sew Woodsy was about cutting fabric with the cricut and using Heat-N-Bond to adhere the fabric to clothing. I got a new cartridge recently, and was working on some baby gifts and made my first ever layered heat-n-bond fabric project. I love how the additional color brings out the rest of the cut phrase and image.  If your interested in doing a dual-layered cut out using heat-n-bond you'll want to adhere the first layer onto the clothing, and once the surface has … [Read more...]

Cloth Snack Baggie

Last month, I featured a cloth snack baggie from Rhinestone Beagle. I was very intrigued by the use of fusible vinyl! I ran out to the store and bought a role, and used neutral "scraps" of fabric from my craft room to come up with an awesome reusable snack bag for myself! I followed Rhinestone Beagles tutorial. It is a well thought out and written tutorial. They did not miss a step, and I wasn't at all confused.  I want to let you know that there were multiple instances when I thought I was … [Read more...]

Craft Lunch: Fabric Rosettes

It had been a few months since our last craft lunch at work. Being that I've been super busy and traveled half the month of March, Sarah, from While They Snooze organized last month's craft lunch!

Our goal for craft lunch is to always pick a craft that has very little pieces and parts, inexpensive, and can be typically completed within our hour lunch break. A majority of the time it involves hot glue. We have a co-worker (and very dear friend of … [Read more...]
