Happy Craft Month!

March is a great month! I get to have my birthday (gotta love birthday freebies haha), Spring starts and I just found out it’s National Craft month! Holler! So, I’m going to write a post about crafty stuff. :)

Crafting It Forward

As much as I hate to do this, I promised to craft it forward to 5 readers, and two people never got back to me after I emailed them. :( So, I’m choosing two people again!

Random.org chose Teale and craftysmurfette!! Congrats ladies! I’ll be emailing you two shortly to get your addresses and some basic information from you two!

Sewing

So, uhm, sewing is pretty fun but HARD. I tried to make a tote bag that was 12×14 and well, ended up with something way smaller because I thought I could cut straight lines with scissors. I realized a little too late that the rotary cutter would be my BFF. Erg..

Check this out. It’s terrible…I’m pretty sure I’m starting over on a new project because I’m impatient. LOL! It was cheap fabric anyway…

Look at how much I stink..I messed up sewing the bias tape flush to the fabric. Boo…I pinned it too. The light pink stuff is supposed to cover the zigzags on the blue fabric, in case you were like me two months ago and are thinking bias tape what?

So, I’m moving onto another project. I don’t need another tote bag anyway…psh. Maybe I’ll put yarn in it for knitting projects.

Not craft related, but I think my dog is seriously a ham. She poses like a model for the camera….how can you resist those eyes??

  1. How DO you get your dog to pose like that? I love taking pictures of my dog but it’s so hard to get good shots of him because he thinks the camera is taking the attention away from him so he starts doing silly things to get between me and the camera. Sigh.

    • She kind of randomly does it. She gets easily distracted and will stare at things for a long time. There was a live crawfish in front of her in this shot..she was a little mesmerized by the weirdness, and when she saw the camera, POOF!, puppy eyes!

  2. Oh, I’m so excited that I get to participate in the craft it forward! I’ll be awaiting your email! How fun!

  3. I love your puppy! How adorable!

    I have no idea what bias tape is. :)

    • Aw thanks!

      I didn’t know what bias tape was either until I read a book. It’s a thin piece of fabric folded over to cover rough edges of fabric, I think. :)

  4. So excited to “Craft It Forward”! Yay!!
