My To Make List for 2015
I’m trying to spend more time on personal projects, with a goal of making *something* every day/do something you love every day. I made a few things with my Silhouette Cameo machine this week, but this was one of my favorites: a paper succulent in a geometric planter.
These are a few of my crafty wishes and dreams for 2015. I love using my Silhouette Cameo machine to help get my projects done, and I’d like to get more familiar with my sewing machine.
- double-sided adhesive for valentine’s themed wall art – I have the background paper ready, but waiting on the double-sided adhesive Update: 12/30 the materials came in. I’ll post my valentine’s decor mantle soon.
- use frosted vinyl to create an etched look on glass – I have some giant knitting needles that need a home, and I’d use an image of a ball of yarn. Also thinking about making one of these for a friend that crochets. Update: 12/30 the materials came in and I vinyled the two vases. I’m going to do a side-by-side post about etching vs using frosted vinyl.
- more decorative throws for our couch either with Heat Transfer Vinyl or Fabric Stenciling Update: I made one on 12/28 and will include it in my Valentine’s Decor post
- make a stamp (either with the Silhouette or a carving tool) to make my own patterned fabric for throws. I like pillows, can you tell?
- make a clear glass block with lights in it Update: Lights acquired!
- painted/stenciled wood sign
- cut fabric with my machine for cards and wall hangings – I haven’t cut out fabric yet with my machine, so it’s something I’d like to tackle
- heat transfers for tees. So many ideas and HTV purchased, but need t-shirt blanks.
- chalkboards – a large piece, maybe cover some clipboards with it
- fabric wall hangings that I’ll probably use HTV or stencil and put dowels at both ends.
- curtains for the french doors sunroom with the fabric I brought back from India
- gusseted makeup bag(s) with some awesome black and gold oilcloth I picked up from the Stitch Lab
- bolster pillows with wood grain fabric I bought last year at Stitch Lab
- zippered throws
