A Crafty To-Do List
For the next few weeks, I’ll be busy packing and unpacking, cleaning, decorating and all the other (ahem) joys that go along with moving. There won’t be a whole lot of crafting going on, although I do hope to somehow make some curtains, a duvet cover, and a baby gift for a friend. How I’m going to manage that with most of my crafts supplies in a box remains to be seen. In the meantime, I thought I’d post a list of things I hope to try (and blog about) once the craziness of the move is behind me.
- Sashiko (Japanese embroidery)– The Portsmouth Fabric Company is having a class on Sashiko in May– sign me up!
- Print Gocco— I want to try it before I buy it– I’d love to find a local class. I want to print my own fabric or try making something like this.
- Fabric-covered switch plates! This is just the beginning of my plan to cover everything in my home with fabric.
- Homemade paper from junk mail. Cool.
- Experimenting with shrinky dinks
- Magazine holders from cereal boxes
- Embedding objects in resin— Okay, this one is highly toxic, but I want to try it!
- The Eliot School in Jamaica Plain has all kinds of cool classes— I want to take the upholstery class, and maybe digital photography.
This list should keep me busy for a long time to come. Of course, before I get around to all of these fantastic projects, I’ll probably get distracted by others. Ooooh, like the free embroidery pattern posted last week on Wee Wonderfuls. Or Suey, the Super Sock Pig! Here I go again…
