I can see the floor!

Every few months I have to not only tidy the craft room, but also purge the clutter. That fabric I just had to have, and then kept for a special occasion… And it never came so its still sitting in a box… Time to go.

Bye bye Styrofoam trees, bye bye home decor magazines, bye bye sewing patterns and jewelry display rack #5… And to everyone in my family’s delight, bye bye giant Rubbermaid of denim scraps!

Scraps (between 2×5 and 12×12 inches. Jersey, denim, cotton, velour) – $2 a grocery bag

image

More scraps – $2 a grocery bag

image

Fairly large (yard or more) fabrics – $2 each

image

Vintage sewing patterns (70s, 80s) – $1 each

image

Magazines – free!!

image

More scraps.. sigh.

But my room is beautifully clean + the floor is clear. Stock hanging in the actual closet, fabric all on one wall, completed works organized. Feels sooo nice.

Email or comment if your interested in something. I am available almost every hour of the day.

Can someone make me these boots?

image

I can admit I have random talents, but i am not confident enough to follow this instructable from urban threads … So is anyone out there more confident than me in their crafty skills? I will totally pay what they are worth as I love boots, and I am coming up empty in my city wide search – who decided boots aren’t fashionable in spring :p

Other option… Do you have, or know where I can purchase, mid-calf suede boots in size 6 or 6.5? I swapped for a pair from aldo with a scrunched top, but the sleeve (?) Is a little too narrow to pull my heel into as there are no zippers. But i love them! And i am determined to find a replacement!

Anything at this point is helpful as not only am I determined – but stubborn, and insist in having them NOW rather than waiting for next fall.

Fabric scraps ready to giveaway

After receiving a bundle if fabric from a fellow artist (thanks vanessa) I felt it was time to go through my OWN mess of fabric, and perhaps pass on that which I won’t ever use.

I have separated the ity-bity bits (to keep for monster stuffing) from all my colour organized bins, which i can now actually reach into, and create the perfect monster face.

I also separated a smaller bag of medium sized scraps (18×24 or smaller) plus a pile of larger pieces (possibly a yard or more each) to GIVEAWAY!

I need you to contact me ASAP, so i dont change my mind, and add these bits back to my collection.

Leave a comment if your interested in either the small bag or the pile of larger pieces (or both) – first response gets it. (sorry I cannot ship it, too heavy)
