I love shopping in the bulk bins at my local co-op. And buying big bags of spices from the asian food store down the block […]
The Whip this WIP Challenge was a success because I’m now finished with my scarf that has been on the needles for far too long!

(this is now) (this is before) I’m happy to report that much progress has been made. First, I took the suggestion of many commenters and […]
I can count on just my hands the things I’ve bought from the craft/yarn store this year: painting supplies for a painting class, yarn for a pair of socks, yarn for a present for my mom, fabric for a shirt and dress (I actually made both, so that’s good.), a small fabric kit. Yet, I still have more craft supplies then ever. Friends routinely give me fabric (which I love) and so I always have an over flowing source of fabric for project making, hence all the fabric projects here on the blog. In fact, it’s the largest category in the project archive.
It’s finally here! The July Swap! After a great rush of positive feedback about doing a Craft Leftovers Swap it’s finally time to get it started! I’m so excited to be hosting my very first Craft Leftovers Swap-Bot Swap!
I’m not sure what it is about this particular set of shirts, but I keep getting a little stuck on them. Thankfully, a friend of mine from the Sew ‘n’ Swap Judy, had a brilliant idea. Lining for the lining!
Here was the issue. I had bought this interfacing so I could finish up this shirt dress jumper deal, but it was pretty unappealing. I couldn’t imagine wearing it against my skin.
I was absolutely delighted when Heather of Dollar Store Crafts invited me to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day in a grand fashion true to my Craft Leftovers heart Instead of buying new, we are pledging to make April a Craft Destash Month! We can make a big impact if we work together – to help the earth, help our home storage situation, and help our wallets.
You see those zeros before that one? That means this is the first of many. Challenge 001: Fabric + buttons. That pink fabric, I love […]
