Procrastinated Crafts

I have said it before, I am a keeper. I keep all kinds of fabric, craft stuff, whatever, because I just MIGHT need it at some future time.
Well, I have vowed to use some of the items that have been hanging around for quite a while.
To start off with, I've had fabric lying around since Jayden was a baby. I was going to use it to make something, just don't know what. I'm sure a blanket or PJs. What ever reason it was originally purchased for, I have finally used it.


I made receiving blankets. It was an easy project. It took me so long to get my serger out compared with how long it took me to actually sew them, that I went hunting for any fabric I had left over from doing a blanket or PJs so I could use it to make more blankets. There was some fabric I had left over from a blanket for Jayden when I was still pregnant with him. I was going to use the left over to make bumper pads, but didn't get around to it. Oh well.
I just serged around the cloth (about 1 and a half yards) and rounded the corners, then it was done.


The next thing I did was to get out the boards and vinyl letters so that I could make the signs form Enrichment night 2 years ago.
This was also an easy project. I painted the boards, then let them dry while I went and did laundry. Then I would paint another coat and let it dry while I cleaned the girls room. Then I pealed off the backing and set it in place, let it sit for a few minutes (this helps it come off the sticky part easier) while I went and cleared off the table. After it was ready, I went, sprayed it with sealer and let it dry until this evening.


Finally checked off these things that were no longer on my list, it had been so long. Pin It

You are AMAZING!!!! One day I too will catch up some crafty projects that have been waiting quite awhile to come to their full glory. Maybe you've even inspired me.

Thanks!

I understand procrastination crafts--have a few of those of my own. thanks for your sweet comments on my burlap pillow--would love to see yours if you make one.

Yeah!! You are good. I throw and give away. I have never kept old projects just in case. In fact, yesterday I gave away all of my scrap booking stuff and am opting for simple easy photo albums.

Yea for you. I was thinking Saturday, between conference sssions, would be a good time to do a few. Son is growing so fast he needs pj bottoms. Love the signs. Wish my ward would do something like them.
