Nylon Pillowcase with Velcro Top


Posted on Jun 30, 2011

  My husband traveled with friends to the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in California.  Before he left, he asked me to make him a nylon pillowcase.  He camped for 4 nights and wanted something that was water and stain resistant.  This was an extremely easy sewing project.  I didn't measure a thing.  I cut the nylon larger than the pillow, so that I didn't have to worry about the pillow...

  I love to find yarn bombings.  I've stumbled across them all over Portland and even when traveling around the country.  I couldn't believe it when I even found yarn bombing at Niagara Falls.  When a friend asked if I wanted to go yarn bombing to celebrate International Yarn Bombing day on June 11th, I couldn't resist.       Last Saturday, my niece and I set off to participate in...

  I wanted to create a store front to sell my Felt Flower Rings.  I just assumed that I'd go back to Etsy.  Etsy is a great option for a storefront, but I wasn't too thrilled about using it.  Etsy has changed a lot since it first began and now it feels like you have to play a certain game to be seen.  I just have a hard time buying into that.  All I want is a small store to show what I...
