Random Notions – More Cool Stuff

Something is wrong – I sat down at the computer and just stared – I have nothing to say!  How is that possible?  Anyone who knows me would probably say it’s not.  I think the stress of the holiday season finally caught up with me- I’m just exhausted and could probably sleep 15 hours straight.  I look at my sewing machines, hidden under their pretty new covers, calling my name and asking to be loved and caressed, and I just sigh.  So again, I will just share some interesting things from around the WWW.

Jo-Ann’s tweeted out a cute, if not a little strange, elephant pattern today.  Honestly, I think it would make a very cute pin cushion!

Found on BabyLifeStyles.com, adorable little yarn monsters. These could brighten up your cubicle or desk at work!

For some reason, I am fascinated with making fabric flowers.  I haven’t made any yet, but here are a couple of cool tutorials:


At While She Naps, a terrific crafting blog, tutorials for Felt Tulips and Felt Daffodils;

Another fun blog, Everyday Art, has a tutorial on Felt Sunflowers;

And, at How About Orange, a Fabric Flower Tutorial for really cute dimensional flowers.

Also, I had mentioned previously how I want to make my own soap – I also want to make my own salt scrub.  I love salt scrubs and the way my skin feels after using one – About.com has a Salt Scrub Recipe I want to try – I just need to remember to add the ingredients to my shopping list someday!

Lastly, just today my friend Rebecca sent me this cute pattern she found on AllFreeSewing to make your own Bicycle Basket – sounds like a great idea to start now for summer riding fun- I just need to get a bike!

The weekend is coming – I am going to do my best to catch up on some sleep and get some sewing and/or crafting done!
