I’ve Been Busy Making Crayon Rolls!

A Finish!, Crafting, Items For Pine Ridge, Sunday Freebies September 12, 2016

One of the things I’ve wanted to make for a while are some of the crayon rolls that I’ve seen around the internet–especially on Pinterest. I’ve thought that they would be great to send to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Since I’ve been browsing the internet looking for patterns for crayon rolls, and trying to figure out what I need to buy to make some of them, I thought I’d share some links to some of the patterns that are out there. I’m sure this is something I’ll refer back to again, as there are quite a few different ways to make these crayon rolls…and well…I like variety. 🙂 I get bored if I do too many things that are too much the same…even if I do like the security of knowing what I’m doing and knowing what I need to have on hand to do it.


Sunday Freebies For 2/29/2016

Crafting, Sunday Freebies February 29, 2016

One of the things that kept me busy this weekend was learning a new software that makes it easier to share images for the Sunday Freebies post. There aren’t a lot of items listed this week as I didn’t have a lot of time to browse the web this week…and it took me a while to figure out how to create a post with the new software, but there are pictures of the freebies that I am sharing this week. This should make the freebies post much more useful as you’ll be able to see items without clicking on links. Way better!

Sunday Freebies For 2/14/2016

Crafting, Donation Crafting, Everything, Items For Pine Ridge, Sunday Freebies February 15, 2016

I have a very short Sunday Freebies post for you today. This week I spent more time sourcing materials for projects that I’m thinking about making than searching out new patterns. The results of those searches will make their way into upcoming posts on places to buy apparel fabric, places to buy lace and other trim, places to buy fabric by the pound, and places to buy yarn.

Sunday Freebies For 1/17/2016

Crafting, Everything, Sunday Freebies January 17, 2016

Though I didn’t do a lot of stitching this week I did do quite a bit of scouring the internet and did find a lot of cool things to share with you. You’ll find them below.

Some of my favorites of this week are the free-standing lace dish, the violet flowers, the box of flowers, and the garden arbor designs. For a child’s sweatshirt I really love the baby giraffe, zebra, and elephant design. I plan to make several sweatshirts using this design. All of these are machine embroidery designs. The flower designs would each make another great sweatshirt…and maybe I’ll get to those this week.

I’m definitely going to make some of the hot and cold wraps listed under the sewing projects this week. Having one of these would be delightful. You simply put it in the microwave and heat it up and tie it around your shoulders.

I hope you’re finding inspiration as you look through each week’s links. I am definitely being inspired!
I have a huge list of finds for this week…but before I get down to sharing those, I want to share a little bit of what I’ve done with a couple of last week’s free embroidery files…which are actually still available as freebies as of this writing.
