Weekend Whirlwind

We got Ms. Diva moved into her own room on Saturday.  Which involved moving furniture, sorting clothes, and some major baby hopping (as Ms. Hope was very interested in what was going on).  That was quite the project!  Some new paint is still in order, but right now it is a interesting combo of girly pink and camo, LOL:) 

I spent Saturday evening knocking out some sewing projects.  My To-Do List is down from 24 items (in March) to 7 items (before I started adding more).  One project I got done is a Binkie Bag for a boy expected in August.  It was a fairly simple project, and I took pictures throughout so I could post a picture heavy tutorial soon.  A Binkie Bag is a must for any new baby.  After having Ms. Hope's binkie bag for almost two weeks now, I wish I had made one six months ago!  I found an example on Etsy that I based mine off of, but I cannot find the same listing.  I know the person was also a blogger, so if you know who I should be giving credit for this idea, please let me know.

Here is a photo of the finished Binkie Bag.

"K" came over, and we did a couple things for her new work cubicle.  She thinks I should call them Cubicle Crafts, LOL!  The "Bloom where you are planted" stitch-out I posted on the Customized Designs page is to go on the bigger bulletin that she is bringing over to resurface next week or so.  We used crushed velvet to cover the small bulletin board, and covered buttons with a light lime green fabric for the corners.  To attach the buttons, I used my power screwdriver with a small drill bit to create holes to thread the button through, and then knotted the button thread around the crushed velvet fabric gathered in the back.  Hot glue was used to attach the crushed velvet to the back of the bulletin board.  Here are the before and after photos.



I have made progress on repurposing a over used pillow into a decorative pillow for our couch.  This will also have a tutorial (or at least directions on how I created this pillow) posted.  Here is the in progress picture.  I was going to finish it Sunday afternoon, but I rented Shutter Island instead, LOL!

And that is the wrap on what I was able to get done sewing/craft wise this weekend!
