Scissors Toggle


Finally, a non-sewing project. In a fabric store I saw a beaded scissors toggle, and of course thought, "I can make that for cheaper!". So I enlisted my mom, who dabbles in beading and has all the stuff. So now when I take my sewing scissors somewhere, I know which ones are mine, and it's much classier than my old method of masking tape. So just find a few beads and string then on, leaving a loop at the end. Use the loop to attach to the scissors, by threading the string of beads through itself. Hard to explain - easy to do. If you are interested but confused, let me know and I can take more step-by-step pictures.

Summer Lounge Pants

I'm still here! I've been busily sewing away, so I thought I should start posting again. Getting back into the swing of things after vacation. Anyways, on to the post.
I've been wanting some summer pajama shorts. Lounge Pants. Whatever you want to call them. Super Easy - just 2 pattern pieces, one for each leg. Sew them together and you have yourself something comfy in no time. What made these really easy was that they are from an old sheet (garage sale, $.50) so the bottom of the pants is the finished edge of the sheet, hence I didn't even have to hem my pants - it was already a finished edge. So go dig out an old sheet and make yourself a pair!

Entering this in the Iron Crafter Competition - wish me luck:
