YOU SEW ROCK ME FRIDAYS #6

 

 

Happy Black Friday and welcome back for another week of “You Sew Rock Me Fridays” with 10 awesome projects that I happened to come across this week while surfing the World Wide Craft Web.

 

 

Project #1

Alejandra from Always Order Dessert DIY’d these Chalkboard Wine Glasses. What I love about them is that you write on the base. What easy and awesome gifts! And now with all the different colors of chalkboard paint, you definitely don’t have to stick with black. I’m thinking some purple chalkboard paint and some yellow chalk for my LSU friends!

 

 

Project #2

Kate at Greedy for Colour made these Tissue Paper and Tulle Flowers. These have to be the prettiest paper flowers I have ever seen! The tulle makes all the difference. I’m thinking my craft room needs some. And you could definitely make some really cool poinsettia-looking flowers like this for Christmas.

 

 

Project #3

Carrie from 2 Friends & 2 Cities built a Ballard-inspired Bench. Love this! I think this might be just what I need to go at the foot of my bed.

 

 

 

Project #4

Kimanh from Scissors.Paper.Wok made these Clothing Buttons from Shrink Plastic. I’ve seen a lot of things made from shrink plastic but this may just be the most useful!

 

 

Project #5

Dora from Show Tell Share made this Stamped Pillowcase with stamps and paint. What a simple way to embellish plain cases. And by the way if you can sew a straight line you should never have to buy a pillowcase again…make one, they are super easy! The Missouri Quilt Co. has a great tutorial for making a pillowcases on You Tube if you have never tackled pillowcases before.

 

 

Project #6

Jo from The Cart Before the Horse made this Mosaic Art on canvas out of fabric scraps. This is something you could even do with the kids. I love making artwork! Yet another project for my craft room.

 

 

Project #7

Katie from Matsuke made these Faux Vintage Hangers. Not only are these super neat but I she shows how to use her technique to transfer inkjet onto wood using glue (which I haven’t tried yet). Super easy!

 

 

Project #8

Lauren from Stamp 48 made this Poem Script Scarf. What a great personalized gift this would make!

Project #9

Mara from Kleios Belly made these Hanging Dishtowels. What a really cute project, and she even provides a pattern to download. I bet someone you know would love these as a gift!

 

 

Then Tami from “Crafting” My Talents used Mara’s tutorial to make these:

 

Notice they don’t have a button because she used velcro. When I first saw Mara’s project I was thinking the same thing…the magic that is velcro. Especially because I know some people are skittish about buttonholes.

 

Project #10

Annekata from Annekata did this Fabric Paper Tape Tutorial. Um, awesome!

 

 

 

Well, there you go…I hope you think these projects are as awesome as I think they are! Now go out and make something, it’s only a few more weeks until Christmas!
