Here are the complete directions on how to make this cute little vintage inspired craft. My grandmother had one hanging in her kitchen for many years. It's so easy to make!
What you will need to get you started
3 dish rags
2 S.O.S pads
needle & thread
I just have to share this paint by number that my grandmother did at least 30 years ago. She never finished painting it however I think it adds to the charm.
I would like to announce the winner of the Crafty Bag of Goodness.
With the help of my sweet little pug Pearl - she pulled the winning name out of the bowl.
Drum Roll Please.....
I had such a great response to my Jiffy Beach Cover-Up that I came up with this new little number titled The Vivian. Here I made a beach sarong that you can put on to keep you dry either at the beach or pool. Again you will use a old towel, four buttons, and 1 inch elastic to add support.
Here is a link to the pattern with the directions
It is very easy and fun to make. Love to know any thoughts on the pattern.
A few night ago I decided to teach my husband how to fold a fitted sheet. He was such a good sport *wink! If you need help click here for the DIY directions.
I made this little number a couple of days ago and posted the how-to's on instructables. Here is a great way to turn an old towel into something smashing for the beach. For the complete instructions visit instructables.
I drafted a pattern for you convenience too.
Have fun making this little jacket - send me some feedback on the pattern. This was my first time drafting out a pattern on Photoshop, it was kinda tricky but I think it turned out well.

Today in the mail I received my prize for winning the April Fools contest on Dabbled.org. I am so excited to have this amazing piece of art work. My husband fancies it too - he loves robots. Just wanted to say thank you so much to Dot from Dabbled.org - this drawing is wonderful.
As part of my Cleanfest May 2008 Clean Up of my entire house I will host another contest to help get my house into shape. Yesterday I started to purge my crafting room to see what I could get part with. I just had why to many odds and ends. I found some really great crafty supplies that I have not used in some time. So I thought why just throw them away when I can sent them out to a fabulous crafter and they can give some love to my them!!
