Kathy's Owl

My mother's friend made this cute owl dishcloth.  And I had this in my surprise collection of things that I kept over the years.  Its still in excellent condition and its 100% acrylic.  Not for sale.  :) 

Learning to Cut

Here is a new fabric that I bought at A.C. Moore stores.  It was not on sale but cost me $2.49 for the whole fabric.  I just cut it into a bookmark size to practice some skills on the sewing machine. 

The Fold

To make a bookmark, first cut the fabric into a book mark shape.  Then you fold and sew along the edges to turn inside out.

My Project Goals

Goals for Project:

1:  Finished current projects before starting a new one

2:  Make things on the craft station

3:  Make a headband using the king-size Addi

4:  Make a bookmark

5:  Try the harder patterns for the sewing machine

6:  Challenge yourself with old/new ideas for the machines

7:  If all else fails knit or crochet with the knowledge you know how to work with and feel comfortable with.  

Key is to complete the project before throwing the yarn away.  Do not waste.

Bambi Bookmark

Srubbies At A.C Moore

The scrubby yarn cost $4.49 for one ball of yarn.  I did not buy this type of yarn.

My 2017 Goals:

Goal 1: Stick to your budget (very important)

Goal 2 : Please use up what you got on shelf's

Goal 3: Always look at your craft station to see what you can actually use and make with

Goal 4:  Do not rush out to the store on impulsive buys when you already got them and paid for

Goal 5:  A Reminder to finish projects (all) before beginning a new project

Goal 6: Do not be afraid to use what's in your stash or collection of craft items

Goal 7: If you do not have the materials needed for a project then its okay to go to the store and buy it.
