How to: Patchwork Lanyard by C.L. Tice

C.L. Tice is a writer, poet, crafter, and mom. Her writing and creating adventures are inspired by the world around her. She can be found at her blog, Mused.

Recently, my workplace changed to having swipe card access rather than the punch codes we had been using. We’ve never required ID badges for employees and I’ve never worked anywhere where we had badges or cards. So this is a new experience for me.

Mr Stub’s Pencil Pouch: Free Sewing Pattern

mrstubs04 I have a very bad habit of loving new pencils. When my pencils start to get short and stubby, they tend to get forgotten in the bottom of my art box. Well no more. I made this cute little pouch just for my short pencils. Now I’ll slip them all in there and make sure to use them up before digging into my new pencil stash! With a bag this cute, how could I not grab it first?

Sewing Pattern: Laundry Bags

laundrybag03
I got these plastic bags for christmas and opted to repurpose them as laundry bags. After load 6, they started to rip. It turns out that being made for soft plush light weight pillows = not being able to hold a bazillion pounds of laundry.

All the same, I loved the simple structure of the bags. It would be a snap to whip up more bags made out of more sturdy fair. And, taking a little inspiration from a Target bag, I added a flap with a snap so I can fold them up for storage and keep them in The Laundry Loader I made last year. Once it gets warm again, I think I’ll even stencil the washing symbols on each bag. :)

Hook Clutch


I’ve been carrying more and more hooks around and my bag and therefore losing them all over the place, travesty!… what to do? A clutch was definitely in order. A necessity for any hooking person.

Now this is for the hookers, but next week I have something in the works for the ones with poky sticks. So this is kind of a two parter just to give you a heads up.
