Craft Rooms

Looking for a new place to live in the next year or so. With that in mind, I am going to look for something where I can have a room designated as my crafting space (I know that's a lot to ask). So I am starting to look for ideas for craft rooms so that when it comes time to move, I will have a rough layout of the room and can come prepared instead of haphazardly throwing stuff in there.
All that to say, I will be periodically posting craft spaces on here that I find, or people send me. So if you have a craft space you would like to share, please pass the pictures along.

Mod Podge and Tea Bags, What?

So I found a new blog I am enjoying that had inspired me to make the fabric covered clothespins and I saw she had a link to a really fun tutorial to make a tea bag covered clipboard.

This is very fun, I could think of at least five different things one could do with this method. For one, I could make my own tea bag box by buying one of those wooden craft boxes at Michael's or some other craft shop, and applying the tea bags to that. Fun!

Now I need to start saving up all of my tea bags...

How to make fabric covered clothespins - Scrap Buster

Sew Mama Sew is having a Scrap Buster Month for October so I came up with an idea to cover clothespins with scrap fabric (truly scrap since it's so small) place a magnet on the back and instantly have both magnets for the fridge and "chip clips." Fun!

Here is the PDF of the instructions.

2. Cute 4 different Fall themed recipe cards

Note: this would be great to make a stack of them, put a cardboard (heavy cardstock) backing on, cardstock or cool front cover, and then use padding cement (also known as padding compound) to seal the stack together and give away as a gift.

Oh so long

Sorry it has been so long, so much has been going on. 1. Started new job. 2. Got the flu (yes the icky one) 3. Got a new sewing machine!!!

I will slowly be posting things back on here as I have managed to collect new things.
