My Attempt at Tie Dye

Spring has sprung and it was once again time to go on a camp out with my girl guide unit. We had kids aging from 7 to 12 so it’s a pretty good range. Looking back to when I was 10, I remember tie dying tshirts in my parks program and thought it would be…

Loops and Threads Yarn – Easy Scarf

Spring has sprung and its probably a bad time to start talking about winter wear. However, I can’t resist a good deal and this wool was on sale from $8CAD to $3.97CAD. Time to get prepared for next year. Loops yarn is advertised as easy to work with, no tools are needed. Now I may…

Chainmaille – Scale Bracelet

After make a bunch of scale flowers, I didn’t have a lot of small scales left but I really wanted to try chaining them together as a bracelet. So I laid all the small scales out that had at least two matching colours and tried to create a pattern in a straight row, once that…

Scalemaille Flowers

I recently bought a chainmaille kit from a friend at work.  She had put together various rings, scales, and instructions for a newbie.  This is something I’ve wanted to try for a while so I was really excited to give this a go. Chainmaille is armour or jewelry made by connecting metal rings. Using pliers the rings…

This is my Bowling Shirt

I was going bowling, and really wanted to use this opportunity make a shirt with the cricut machine.  All I had to work with was a grey shirt, a dream and a surprisingly large amount of iron on vinyl options.   After spending more time than I’d like to admit trying to think of a good bowling…

Cricut EasyPress 2 Starter Iron-On Bundle

So connected to the Cricut Maker post, the companion piece to this is the easy press.  When using iron on vinyl, you can work with a regular iron or a giant heat press.  I suppose this falls somewhere in between.  The benefit of the easy press over a regular iron is you can control the…

Cricut – The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship

I’d like to start by saying this post is not sponsored by Cricut, but that would be the ultimate dream. At Christmas a relative raved about how much she loved her cricut machine.  I had never heard of one before and didn’t really know what it did.  After hearing such a great review, I did a lot…

Angel Wing Anklet

Recently I was at Michaels I found a Jewelry kit for $5.  Over the years I have fallen in and out of love with making jewelry, so I have a tiny bit of knowledge, certainly enough to scrape by. So why not give this a go. This particular kit(linked here) comes with: 1 purple cording (3…

New Blog, New Sewing Table

The natural next step to anything is writing a blog.  So here we are, 1st post. The plan is to accomplish two things, talk about crafts and talk about board games.  That is how I spend the majority of my time.  However, I should probably set the record straight and say i’m not really an…
