More crafty experiments

Like a lot of people I know, I tend to stockpile supplies for projects I’m working on (or think I might want to work on someday). What’s worse, I end up with a lot of half-completed projects lying around. So I’m trying to make use of the materials I have (and maybe clear some room to put the rest of it away).

Thus, we have:


a crocheted purse


a pair of Pretz fabric pouches–these are for sale in my Etsy shop

The Pretz fabric was created using inkjet printable cotton sheets. They’re marketed to quilters, but I’ve been trying to find ways to work them into clothing and accessories.


a sticker album with a simple sewn binding


Recycled manga envelopes (also for sale on Etsy)

What’s nice about all of these projects is that they were all fairly quick. I think the pouches took the longest. Not only did I have to purchase and eat the Pretz (such a terrible burden), but then cut the boxes apart, scan them into the computer, arrange the images in Photoshop, print the fabric, and then finally get down to sewing. I really like being able to put anything I want on fabric with just my home printer, though.

  1. So cute! I’m with you on the stockpile/half-finished projects. I’m the worst! I scrapbook and end up with SO MUCH paper then I don’t want to use it because it’s so pretty and I’m afraid I’ll want to use it later…weird, I know.

    But I love all your projects – I’m off to your etsy store!

  2. Love that purse! All of your crafts are so fun.
