October Club Projects

Here is the card. The picture is not the best but my battery was dead and my camera was beeping so this is the best I can do for now. The strip at the bottom of the spiderweb under the hat is actually green even though it is very washed out in the pic. I used sticky strip at the bottom of the web to gather the ribbon. I got this idea from elsewhere but forgot who made it. It turned out super cute though.

For the boots you just wrap sticky strip around the backside of the circle. The red plastic layer makes it lay funky but once you pull it off the sticky strip lays flat. Gather ribbon along the outside sticking it to the sticky strip as you go. Tuck under the ends.

For the glimmer brads use a small brad with mini glue dots stuck to the top. Dip them in glitter and voila! Glimmer brads!

I love this little treat holder. This is what I'm sending with Jade for her preschool Halloween party.

How to Fix Feety Jammies

  • feety jammies with holes in the feet
  • tissue paper (pattern)
  • pen/marker
  • scissors
  • fleece (any color will do...I used some left overs I had stashed away)
  • pins
  • sewing maching/serger
First you'll turn the jammies inside out and flatten out the feet. Trace the bottom of one of the feet onto the tissue paper with a marker/pen then cut it out.
Place new foot pattern onto fleece. I doubled up the fleece so I only had to cut the pattern out once.
Here is what you have:
Next you'll pin the two fleece feet onto the bottom of the jammies.
Then sew the fleece onto the jammies. I used a serger then did a straight stitch just inside the serged edge for added durability. If you don't have a serger just zig zag around the edge and then do a straight stitch just inside the zig zag.
Here it what it looks like from the bottom after it's been sewn.
Voila! Good as new...well, almost. There's now a lot more life to these jammies (and one other pair) since they still fit and they're super soft and comfy to wear...or so I'm told. :)

Dino Mite Bib

So I made this about 2 weeks ago just after I got my gypsy for the cricut. I have had fun playing with it but not had enough time :( I do however love how this bib turned out.

bib (I got mine in a 10 pk at Babies R Us)
fabric (assorted colors)
Heat 'n Bond lite (for sewing)

Time: 30-45 minutes

I cut out the pieces in assorted colors, arranged them where I wanted them, ironed them on, then sewed around each item to secure it. I love, love, LOVE the little dinosaur!
