Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Crochet A Sunflower Video

Still in August so we can do another posting on sunflowers. :)  Today I thought we would watch this video from Crochet Jewel on how to make these little sunflowers. You could make several of them for coasters or to just put around the house for decoration. Looks very easy.....I may have to try this. 






Happy crocheting!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Upcylced Sunflowers

Well we are into the later days of summer. Kids are going back to school including my grandkids. In the late summer the sunflowers are in bloom everywhere. Well almost everywhere depending on where you live. LOL! :) 

I have always liked sunflowers because they are so colorful so I was wondering how people upcycle items to make sunflower items. So off to Etsy I went. Here are some of the things I found for you to see. 

RelovedCreations has made these cute sunflowers out of recycled aluminum cans. I think they turned out really neat. 




Do you need a new tote bag and have a sunflower seed bag that is getting empty from feeding the birds? Well you could make a tote like this one from onewomanstudio.





How about this sunflower brooch from pocketfullposies. It is made from recycled zippers! How neat is that!





Ok...for the western and cowboy look how about putting this "yard art" in your yard this fall. RusticHorseShoe makes these out of old horseshoes. :)




I thought it was interesting seeing some of the items people upcycle to make sunflowers. Wish I had that talent. LOL! :)

Have a good week!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Healing Your Self-Healing Cutting Mat

If you are like me your cutting mat looks like this most of the time. It says it is a self healing mat, but I get all those little fuzzies all over it from cutting lots of batting on it. If you have the same problem these instructions from madebychrissed shows you how to clean your mat. I tried it and it works!  Why not give it a try. :)



Happy sewing!
