YOU SEW ROCK ME FRIDAYS #9

 

 

It’s Friday so that means that I’m back again with “You Sew Rock Me Fridays” that features 10 awesome projects that I happened to come across this week while surfing the World Wide Craft Web.

 

 

Project #1

Andrea from Charcoal and Crayons came up with this Starfish Art. First of all I am crazy about anything with starfish…it’s kind of my thing to collect (well, stars in general too!). But I love how she uses ribbon to weave such an eye-popping background to display it on. Awesome!

 

 

Andrea also made this Framed Calendar with jute string using the same weave technique.

 

 

Project #2

Amy from Watch Me Daddy made this Felt Flower Scarf. A boutique look for only a couple of bucks…sweet!

 

 

Project #3

Gail from Can’t Stop Making Things came up with these sophisticated looking French Enameled Numbers awhile back.

 

 

Then Holly from 504 Main made some of those enamel numbers to use in her Family Chalkboard Command Center and Calendar.

 

 

Project #4

Kelli from Restore Interiors shows how to some simple and super pretty Burlap Rosettes. I love that they look messy!

 

 

Project #5

Amy from The Salvage Collection showed off the fabulous Monogram Letter that her son made. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE those stripes! Awesome work Tucker…Pottery Barn will be calling you up soon! I think it is awesome when kids get involved in the creative process. :)

 

 

Project #6

Jessica from How About Orange made these stylish and ridiculously simple Retro Candle Holders. This would be even easier if you have a Cricut or Silhouette! Soooo many possibilities with this one.

 

 

Project #7

Amy from Positively Splendid sewed up these gorgeous Whimsical Stockings. She even includes a link to a tutorial on how to make them. If I can find the time I sooooo want to make these for my house!

 

 

Project #8

Brit from Interestosity fashioned some stunning Artisan Earrings for a fraction of the cost to buy something similar. Hello gifts!

 

 

Project #9

Katy from Sweet Verbena shows how to make a Watermark Tee. I love new techniques! This looks wayyyy easier than Batik but gives a similar look. To get a two tone shirt, you can put the glue on, dye the shirt a dark color, rinse out the glue, then dye the shirt a light color.

 

 

Project #10

Ok so my last project is actually several that revolve around stars…I went a little bit nuts because I looooooove stars! Ann from Making the Best of Things repurposed a metal 3D dollar store star into this Book Page Star.

 

 

If you don’t have a metal star, Kim from Craftaphile will teach you how to make a 3D paper star. She uses 2 sides for the star but you could definitely only use one if you wanted to with heavy enough paper.

 

 

The ladies at Little Birdie Secrets used single sided paper stars like the ones above to make this quite festive Holiday Wreath.

 

 

You could also make these stars with light weight cardboard, and then cover it with something or paint it. Lisa from Grey Luster Girl made this ah-mayyyy-zing Antiqued Star. Love it!

 

 

 

So that’s what I got for ya this week…I hope you will agree these projects are as awesome as I think they are! Now go out and make something…Christmas is almost here! :)
