I started making this summer table runner long before summer started but it took long into the fall to get it completed because of my fabric choices and not purchasing enough yardage!! Won't make that mistake again!! But the wait was well worth it because it turned out perfectly!!

I made these pretty ruffled basket liners today and spray painted the brown and white mis-matched baskets a soft black so that the feed sack printed fabric would stand out. Dont you think they look great!!

I looked up on the interenet this quilted heart design for the outer border, I also read on another post suggesting beginner quilters should "practice" on charity quilts....
So I practiced all the quilting designs I wasnt sure about on this quilt!

Is your thread hidden in every crack and crevice and stuck in drawers? I have alot of thread that's true, but keeping it organized was something I desperately needed to do once the thread seemed to multiply. So I looked and looked and all I could find in the beginning was those cheap little thread stands you get at the craft store, that worked for a little while but it seemed my thread was multiplying in numbers so something else was needed, then I happened to find this site on the Internet (can't remember the name of it) that a clever girl named Mandy had done using peg board and dowels and Voila!! Here it is!!! Handy and organized and no more hunting for that color you know you have somewhere!!

Well here it goes, Ive never re-purposed anything other than milk jugs so this should be interesting!! There's this pin I saw on pinterest about a re-purposed jewelry box into a pincushion and I thought... I can do that!! So I went on a treasure hunt at the local goodwill and found this cut little trinket box for $1.01!! Although the top is quite nice too I have no idea what to do with it so I'm saving it for another pin idea!!
|Trinket Box To be RE-purposed!!|
This is a side view of the flower detail and the nice little lip on the top of the box. Also there's a nice little under lip great for gluing to!! This little trinket box even has cute little feet that it sits up on.!!
You'll probably want to wash your box to make sure there's nothing on it that will prevent the paint from sticking, so I washed it and dried it first. Then on to the fun stuff! Paint!! I picked a pretty Kiwi just because the one I found on pinterest was lime green and this kiwi paint is Soy Paint I found at Jo-Ann for $1.99 and a little brush I already had - free!
Items needed for pincushion: fabric in your color choice, mine is from a cake layer I got at a local fabric store and the batting and some fluffy fiber fill or you could re-purpose an old pillow stuffing for this too! I filled the cavity with the fiber and then layered the batting over top for a smooth finish to the fabric topper. Then I used a low heat glue gun to glue everything into place and Voila!!
So here's my re-purposed trinket box made pincushion ready to be pinned!! No pun intended pinterest!! Don't you just love the fringey border?? It adds that little froo froo needed to the hard edges!
This is a side view of the body and the fringe detail and the height of the pincushion for pinning!
So ladies now you have a mini tutorial on how to make your own "one of a kind" pincushion!!

1/2 bar fels naptha bar soap grated.
1/2 cup arm and hammer super washing soda
1/4 cup borax.
1- 5 gallon bucket with lid
save old laundry containers for easy dispensing
Fill a 5 gallon bucket half full with hot water and add dry ingredients mix well. Take grated bar soap and four cups hot water and simmer on cooktop till disolved then mix into other ingredients in bucket, fill the bucket with more hot water, leave about 2 inches of space between liquid and top of bucket, for stirring later. Cover with lid and let mix sit over night to thicken, it will gel, I used a hand drill with a cement mixer attachement to mix thoroughly- also you might want to take this step outside since it could get messy!! then its ready!!!! Happy washing!!!!

I can never find what Im looking for when I dig into my purse! It's usually the keys or my work ID or a pen! I made a nice little purse organizer!
No more digging for keys, work ID, note pad and pen, or my jump drive! I won't miss digging for my keys cause now they are right in the center of the divider where I put them!!
