new craft room signage

the latest addition to my craft room – a 15½ x 12½ vintage cafe sign made of chrome, felt and push letters.

a great buy from phatdog vintage on etsy.

loving this + it looks so cute on the freshly painted beige walls. i plan to change up the messaging here and there depending on the project…

o.p.p. – felt coasters

coasters: whether wood, glass, stone, cork or plastic – they keep the water from the woodwork while prettying up any piece of functional furniture.  now enter the felt… a crafting favorite, plus available in an array of colors. combine the two and you get felt coasters cute enough for any room, plus an easy enough project for even the clumsiest of crafters.

i love the ‘snowflakes’ that the folks at martha stewart have whipped up here… a cold coaster design for even the warmest of beverages.

project – electronics case

it’s been a crazy busy week… but today starts a loooooong weekend here in australia (labor day) – so, i’m jetting on a plane tonight to meet my man who’s been away the past week at a conference in the northeast corner of queensland where the ‘rainforest’ and ‘great barrier reef’ reside. (i’m so excited for a little r&r!) anyways… i’m short on time, but wanted to give all the howd.i.y. readers a quick little project before i go.  this one is fun, simple & useful – it’s a case for your ipod, camera, phone or item of choice.

cost: $3
creation time: 30-60 mins
supplies: one piece of felt, one color of embroidery thread, needle, buttons & 2 ft of yarn

  1. measure your device which you wish to create this for (i made the one in the pic for an ipod)
  2. cut two identical pieces of felt from the original piece. Each piece should be 1.5 inches wider & 2.5 inches taller than your device measurements
  3. using the embroidery thread, sew the pieces together on 3 of the sides – on the top sew around each of the openings
  4. braid some yarn to use as a fastener – sewing the ends to the felt with the embroidery thread
  5. finish off with a cute button to add some personality… and there you are – a cheap & cute case personalized to your liking
