Cabinet Door Flag

In my thrifting I came across a few cabinet doors, and I just had the urge to make one into a flag.  See what you think.



What you will need:
Cabinet door
Small strips of wood
Paint
Sandpaper
Faux Glaze

First I painted and antiqued the frame part of the cabinet using gray paint.  There is a tutorial HERE on how to do this.



I then painted the strips and antiqued them a bit also.  There is a tutorial HERE


Then I assembled the flag.



Then it was time to do the stars.



First I made a pattern for the sides of the star, traced them and cut them out of script scrapbook paper.



Then, I used some Modge Podge to adhere the scrapbook paper to the star.


Lastly, I glued the stars on the flag.

I love flag decor!

A Good Cook Beats All

I have such fond memories of my mother's cooking as a child.  She was such a wonderful cook, and made great memories in the kitchen cooking.  This is for my mother!

Wedding Sign


I often end up making things for weddings, so I decided to make something unique.

Mr. & Mrs.


What you will need:
Chalkboard
Pattern
Stylus
Transfer paper
Chalkboard marker / chalk
Fence boards






I didn't get any pictures when I was doing the design on the chalkboard, but HERE is a tutorial on how I create my chalkboards


Then I cut some old fence boards to the size, so cut them to whatever will fit your project.



Next, you will want to fasten the pieces of wood together.  I was going to glue mine together, but my handy husband suggested something a bit more sturdy.  He used his pocket hole jig to screw the boards together.




I added a little paint to the boards, because I like the look.



Lastly, I glued the chalkboard to the boards!



It turned out to be a fun project!

Jewelry Hanger


My daughter loves to where jewelry, but her necklaces were tangled up in a drawer in an organizer on her dresser. I decided to  maker her a jewelry hanger to help her keep her necklaces untangled.  She loves it!

Jewelry


First, I took an ordinary cabinet door, drilled holes where I wanted the pegs and glued them in.  I also glued a wood embellishment in the middle.



Next, I painted the cabinet door a silvery/gray color.  I like a contrasting color under the top color.


Then, I painted it one of my favorite paint colors: Herloom White.  I painted a couple coats.



Next, I sanded it a bit to antique it.


Here is a picture of it before my daughter hung some of her jewelry on it.


My daughter was so excited to put here jewelry on it!

Bunny Bags


I can hardly believe Easter will be here soon!

I wanted to make some cute bags to put treats in for the kids this year.  I decided on something a little different this year.  The bunny design is chalkboard on vinyl that is sewed onto the bag.




What you will need:
Design
Vinyl
Chalk marker
Saral Transfer paper
Status




First decide the position of your pattern.  Then place the transfer paper down with the chalk side of the transfer paper against the vinyl and place your pattern on top.

Next, use your stylus to trace the pattern.





Then, trace over the chalk pattern with a chalkboard marker.



Next, cut out the design in whatever shape you like.  I cut mine out in an egg shape.




Then peel off the backing of the vinyl and stick it to the fabric.  I used a zigzag stitch to secure it to the fabric that will be sewed into a  bag.  



Next I cut and trimmed the fabric to the sizes I wanted and I also cut some trim on the top of the bag.



I sewed the trim to the top of both sides on the bag.


Next, I folded one end of the fabric over about 1/2 inch (toward the center of the bag) and pressed with an iron. Then, I folded it over 1/2 inch again and pressed - this forms the casing for the drawstring. Repeat on the other end of the fabric.


Then, I sewed along the bottom of the casing on the wrong side of the fabric.  I used the inside of my pressure foot as a guide. Make sure to sew each casing separately.  Don't forget to back stitch!



Next, I sewed the side seams with the right sides of the fabric together - remembering to stop right before the casing so as not to sew it closed.
