Linda's craft corner

toolgrannyNovember 11, 2012

I needed a quick craft gift for an exchange. So I stuffed fabric inside a glass ornament.

You just cut squares with pinking shears (or not) and poke them inside with something like a skewer. Put right side out. The little squares seem to settle right against the glass. To keep them in place, I also stuffed ribbons of batting in middle. Too easy.

You've all probably been doing this for years and just didn't tell me.

Thanks for sharing. I see those clear glass ornaments and always wonder....what could I do with those!.
Now I know and what a wonderful way to use those little scraps of Christmas fabric.

Too cute and very easy!

But, I'm disappointed! I thought you were going to show us pics of your "craft corner" in your house - you know, that room or corner in the basement where all the magic happens.
:o(

I want to see your machines up and ready and the woodworking tools lined up at attention, etc. etc.

Teresa, I can only show you my sewing room. The workshop downstairs with the heavy tools is top secret. If you want to visit San Francisco, I'll give you a personal secret tour, though.

I know - you'll tell me I need more sewing machines.

Linda, How do you keep that wonderful clear area on your cutting mats???? When I get down to about a 20 inch clear spot, I have to start clearing......again. But, I suppose that's what happens when a person works on multiple projects at the same time.......sigh.

Hmmm....I do see some empty spots where you could fit in another machine?

My sewing room looks just as nice as yours - if you don't count the piles of fabric, batting, projects, books/magazines, etc. covering all flat surfaces and the floor.

Never heard of this what a great group gift to take to a guild or group. Thanks
it would be fun to use all the pieces needed for a block so whn they open it they have something o make
a little gift tag could be made with the photo of the block on the outside

I love the pic frozen on the TV lol!! and look at that view from the window, gorgeous!! My cutting table is totally hidden at the moment, I know it's there some where.

I love, love, love, the ornaments. My Dawg crazy sister with the Dawg Christmas tree would be so happy.

Very clever idea - love it! I love your sewing room, too. Someday I can have a room for just sewing ... gotta get my son to move his stuff out of here to his own house!

I haven't seen this before. It looks great. And another wow added to how neat your sewing room is!

What's the mystery wood working equipment? A friend makes adirondack chairs in her basement. Are you a furniture maker?

Your sewing room is very neat and tidy! I see room for a few more machines also :)

Is that a sneak peak of the Signature Wedding Quilt??

Wedding quilt almost done and no, Sharon, it never is this clean. Do you think I'd have posted a picture of this space with several projects going on. It's piled deep most times. LOL

Hope to have a quilt to post very soon. Binding going on today. Boy I'll be glad to spread fabric all over that table again.
