My Pixelated Quilt - A Labor of Love

About a year ago I took my first class on Craftsy.  It was a free class, I wasn't going to fork over money when I didn't know if I would like the classes.  It wasn't until a few months ago that I finally put that class to use.

My finished quilt at Shimmy 4 the Cure

The class is classed Pictures to Pixels, you'll need a Craftsy account but they are free.  The class was great!  My mind whirled and I finally realized what I wanted to make.  I would take one of my belly dance photos and turn it into a quilt.  I would then donate it to the annual breast cancer fundraiser to be raffled off.  

So let's talk about how to make one of these.  The first thing you really need to is take the class.  It's free and she gives you all of the info on how chart your quilt and how to figure how much fabric you need.  Follow her directions for picking a picture, this one was a little more involved than I would suggest doing.  Also the fact she has formulas for you to figure your yardage is a life saver.

My original photo

Now some things I learned from doing this.  When you start to group all of one color together so you don't have to cut a bunch of little squares be mindful of where your seams will go.  I didn't do this and ended up having to do some creative sewing.  I attempted to make as many big pieces as possible to save time sewing and fabric.  It's not worth it.  Take the time to set it up so you have easy seams to sew.  Next is how to cut your fabric, I had to rebuy three fabrics because I goofed.  You don't cut the fabric by cutting a strip off and then cutting that strip up.  What I ended up doing was graphing my cuts out.  I just took a piece of graph paper drew a rectangle the size of my fabric and drew each piece I would need.  You end up with very little fabric waste.  The big thing I learned, bigger isn't better.  This was an overwhelming project that took far longer than I ever imagined.  I was working on this on the way to the event.  I figured two weeks at most, not two months.

Now why did I do this?  One it was super creative and it also required lots of math.  I got to engage both sides of my brain and that makes me happy.  The main reason though was my mom.  She died from breast cancer.  She also made quilts for a living.  I couldn't think of a better way to pay tribute to two very important people.  My mother who instilled my love of all things creative and the woman in the photo.  This woman works tirelessly to raise money for breast cancer.  She lost her sister and like me is determined no one else ever feels our pain.

#ALSIceBucketChallenge

I did the ice bucket challenge and in an effort to raise some extra bucks for ALS I'm donating all the money I make from Youtube on this video but you're going to have to share it to get it up in views high enough.  Also any income from the blog for the next two weeks will go to ALS as well.  I can't tell you how to help do that but I'm guessing most of you know what to do.  Please go to alsa.org/donate

Sewing Desk Makeover with a Surprising Twist

I've been working on updating my sewing and craft studio.  I'll be sharing lots of sewing room ideas with you as we go through the room.  The first project was a new sewing desk or table.  I was over sewing on a card table, I needed something more substantial.  I really wanted something I could upcyle or refurbish.  I also wanted to make sure that my sewing room furniture matched my personality.  Thank goodness I have the skills to refurbish furniture because unique furniture is very pricey.  I found the desk I ended up using for $2 at a garage sale.



I think it's a huge transformation don't you?  It was super simple to do.  Let's break it down so you can see what I really did.

Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Frying Pan Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. For more information you can visit my disclosure tab.

I recently got an Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic frying pan to review.  I'll be the first to admit I was a bit skeptical.  I've never had much luck with non-stick pans.  This one seems to be very different though.  I actually made an omelet that looked like an omelet.


So first off I love the color.  It comes with instructions which was nice.  You have to season the pan before each use.  That boils down to putting about a teaspoon of oil in the pan and wiping it back off.  I've never been able to make an omelet.  Doesn't matter what I do they never flip or fold right.  So that's what I used to test out this pan.  

So how did it do?  AMAZING!  I had a real omelet when I was done.  I was shocked.  It flipped, it didn't stick and the folding well that was my fault.  I can't blame the pan for that one.  It also cleaned up really easy.  Again the instructions tell you how to wash it and you have to follow them.  

In my box I also got a pan protector too.  It fits inside of the pan so that it doesn't get scratched up.  It's held up great.  

I said at the start that I've had bad luck with non stick pans.  It hasn't mattered if I had cheap ones or the more expensive hard anodized ones they all seem to warp on my glass top stove.  This pan has not warped!  I'm really happy about that.  I'm considering getting the other two sizes because of that.

Now, if you would like to purchase your own pan well I've got you covered. ;)  You can purchase them through Amazon and as you know any purchase on Amazon from one of my links gives me a couple of pennies.  I got the 8" pan and it's perfect for omelets or a couple of eggs but a little small for much else.  



Do you have one of these?  What do you think of them?


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Summer Sewing Series: Project One - Magnetic Wrist Pin Cushion

It's time to start sewing.  I hope everyone picked up at least what was on the essentials list by now and you are ready to sew along with us.  Today, I did a video.  Since this is the first project I wanted you to actually see how to make it in almost real time.  This is a 30 minute craft.  Even with hand sewing!



I got my magnet at Harbor Freight.  There are two in each package for 69 cents!  They are some of the best craft magnets I have ever bought.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me.  You can leave a question here, on the video on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, or email me at craftingtodo at gmail dot com.

The Extras of Sewing

So the other day we discussed the essential items you need to sew.  Today we are going to discuss some of the extras.  They are things that are helpful but not necessarily needed.  Most of these items I have gone the majority of my sewing life without so you certainly don't NEED them.  Once you've figured out this is for you though you might want to pick up a few of these items.

Sewing Essentials

As the end of the school year comes and I see the end of my commissioned sewing projects I know I'll be doing a lot more projects for the blog.  With that in mind, I wanted to share with you what I consider the essentials for anyone who wants to sew.  I'll provide links if they are available.  I know some of it is kind of spendy but if you pay attention you'll notice most of my essentials have been around for 20 plus years.  You can't beat a ruler that costs you $17 still being around 20 years later.  It makes it less than a dollar a year.  I also scour garage sales and thrift stores.  Look for sewing or quilting in garage sale lists, or "cleaning out grandma's" those are the ones that will more than likely lead you to quality sewing notions for little of nothing.

How To Sell Your Patterns on Craftsy

(This post contains affiliate links which means I will be compensated if you purchase after clicking these links.)



I have really enjoyed working with Craftsy the last couple of months.  This is just one of the many reasons I love the platform though.  Any of us can upload our patterns and sell them through their indie pattern section.  There are no fees and it is fairly simple to do.  

1. Make sure you have a Paypal account. All pattern transactions happen through Paypal, and Craftsy requires that you have a Student, Premier, or Business account in order to sell patterns.
2. Put your pattern in .pdf format. You can’t upload any patterns to the online pattern store unless they’re a .pdf file format, so if they’re currently saved as a Word doc, .jpg, or other file format, you must convert it to a .pdf before you upload it to Craftsy.
3. Include a photo. All patterns must have at least one photo to accompany them, but you can add up to five photos. Colorful, interesting photos tend to work the best for catching our members’ eyes!
4. Fill out the pattern description. We will ask you some basic questions around your pattern making it easier for Craftsy folk to find your pattern and know what your pattern is for. Make sure you have info about your pattern handy for this step.

If you don't know how to do step two just send me a message I'd be happy to help you.  That's it!  You can start earning some money from your hard work.  I know making a pattern isn't easy and there is no reason why you shouldn't earn something for all your hard work.

Gluten Free Stir Fry Noodles

I have missed stir fry noodles.  I've tried some other recipes but there was one thing wrong with them.  They were so hot it made my ears hurt.  Really folks nothing should be so hot that your ears ring.  I've done this recipe a lot lately, we've really fallen in love with it.


The greatest part of this recipe it is completely up to you and your family's tastes.  Don't like mushrooms that's OK you don't need them.  There is just a few ingredients you need to keep the same and the rest is up to you.

Chipboard Music Notes and Mod Podge Stencils

This is a word of mouth advertising post.  For more information please see the disclosure tab at the top of the page.  

I'm so excited to bring these stencils to you for many reasons.  First of  all, they allow us to take our Mod Podge obsession to a new level.  Secondly, they were designed by none other than Amy from Mod Podge Rocks!  Third, it gave me an excuse to play with Mod Podge, glitter, and beads.  When Amy asked for help getting the word out, I jumped at the chance to help her.  She was so kind in answering questions and providing support for me when I started this blog I had to return the favor, at least in a small way.

Welcome New Sponsors and A Giveaway!

I'm beyond thrilled right now.  After a few years I finally have some real, honest to goodness sponsors here on the blog.  I know none of us like ads and I promise the ads will be contained to the sidebar.  I also promise you that any and all praise from me is strictly my own.  I've worked hard to partner with companies that I believe in because, let's face it, I'm no sales person.  I do want to share the sponsors with you though and if you'd like to check any of them out, please do so through my links so that they stick around.


Craftsy

Craftsy!  That's right folks I get to work with Craftsy to bring you great online classes.  When I say great I truly mean it, I've gotten to take one of their paid courses and it's amazing.  I'll be bringing you a full review of the class next week.  If you haven't signed up please do, they have tons of free classes for you to try out.



I'm not sure that Heat N Bond needs any introductions do they?  I've been using it for as long as I can remember.  The first project I remember doing with Heat N Bond I was about 9.  My mother ironed it on to a piece of fabric and then I fussy cut shapes out.  She ironed it on to a sweatshirt for me and I embellished it with puffy paint.  



If you have a shared kitchen these are a must.  Stickers easily label your containers, shelves, cutting boards, etc. gluten free.  It's a great way to help keep cross contamination down.  It's a friendly reminder for everyone in your house, "HEY NO GLUTEN ON THIS".  



Lastly, we have Style Scan.  It certainly isn't the least though.  StyleScan started as an app last year to help us ladies style our outfits.  They quickly realized that what a lot of woman wanted was not only how to put an outfit together but to buy the pieces as well.  That's when the website was born.  The greatest part?  FREE SHIPPING!  I love free shipping.  Want to know an even great part?  They are hosting a giveaway!!!  Here's the deal, they are giving away $100 worth of accessories.  Now I really, really, really want one of you to win this.  You see they aren't going to give just you some accessories, if one of my readers win, then I win too!!  So help a girl out and help yourself out. ;)

Small Business Spotlight - Belli Phat

This year I'm going to be sharing small businesses with you.  I want to take that spirit of "Small Business Saturday" and spread it out all year long.  So without further ado, let's peek over at Belli Phat.  Each photo will take you to the listing so you may purchase anything featured in this post.

Let's start with how Belli Phat's owner Bellatrix Ali describes her store.
When I started belly dancing, I noticed that there weren't a lot of costume options out there for plus-sized dancers (which is the category I squarely fell into). And the options that were out there still had to be heavily altered in order to fit my specific proportions well -- afterall, when you're onstage performing you want to look and FEEL your best! 

Very frustrated with the market, I decided to teach myself how to sew & started making my own costume pieces. Almost immediately, I had other dancers (esp plus-sized dancers) asking where I got my costume items. When I told them that I made them, they excitedly asked if I would make things for them. "Oh, no, I'm not a professional seamstress", I'd reply. In the meantime, I had started sewing for my other troupe members as well -- which was great, as they were all different body shapes, so I got to learn how to fit garments & make patterns/pattern alterations. I loved learning new techniques!

Finally, after a few years of people asking me to make costume items for them, I felt comfortable enough with my skills to be able to say YES! And that was over six years ago... Now, Belli Phat is a business that I am pleased helps dancers *around the world* find costume pieces that they cannot find anywhere else -- and that, at times, make them feel more beautiful than they have ever felt. I cherish being a part of someone else's dance journey.


Now the whole store isn't reserved to just belly dance costuming. Thanks to shows like Downton Abbey fascinators seem to be the must have hair accessory.  Since custom orders are available you could always commission one for a special occasion.  The ones shown below range from $20.00 - $25.00.  If you ask me that is a steal!  I've seen some of these in person and the pictures do not do them justice.




If you are looking for gift ideas, look no further.  What young woman doesn't need a make-up brush holder?  I also love the fact that she shows it as a crochet hook holder too!  Isn't that just genius?  
What about an insulated curling iron holder?  Where was this when I had hair long enough to curl?  

Now I can't feature a belly dance shop and not feature some belly dance stuff.  I've often debated taking up dancing just so I could have the pretties.  
How pretty is that orange bra?  It is covered in orange assuit.  I'm not finding anything that pretty when I go shop.
I wanted you to see the assuit fabric up close in case you hadn't seen this fabric before.  Assuit fabric has been around forever, it's mentioned in the Bible, but I hadn't heard of it until I started photographing belly dancers.  

Now that you've seen a little of what Belli Phat has to offer go check out the full Etsy Store.  Also be sure to check out the Facebook page.  Bellatrix shares in progress photos and other fun stuff on the Facebook page.

How to Make a Custom Pattern

So you made the dress form, you even ran out and purchased all the stuff you need to make your apron, so now all you need is the pattern for the top right?  Great!  This will be painless, because I already went through the pain for you.

What You'll Need:


  • Your dress form (if you didn't make one get a friend to help mark the fabric on your body)
  • Pins
  • Measuring Tape
  • Cheap fabric (I got mine at Goodwill for 2 bucks a bolt, muslin will work too)
  • A marking tool - dress maker's chalk or marking pen
  • Masking Tape

First, plan out your pattern with masking tape.  This way you can get the general feel of the shape your top is going to take.  You'll also be able to make sure that you are going to cover what you want to cover. The inside will be your final size, the width of your masking tape will be your seam allowance.

You can either measure or eyeball how much fabric you need.  I just eyeball it.

Now cut a piece of fabric big enough to cover the area you are working on.

Place the fold of the fabric down the middle of your dress form.  Pin it at the top and at the bottom.

Now you need to mark your cutting lines.  I kind of fold the fabric back to see the outside edge of the masking tape.  Move the pins as needed.

Cut your pattern out.  Pin it back on the dress form.

Now is when you do the finessing of your top.  Depending on your body shape this may be just cleaning up some lines or if you are like me figuring out where your darts go.  I had to put a dart in because of that excess on the side.  The widest part of my body is my bust line.

Dart placement tip: Find the tip of your breast and mark it.  Measure out 1/2 inch (towards armpit) and mark again.  This is where your dart should end.

All top patterns are made basically the same way.  You can now make custom top pattern!

Camo Apron - Custom Fit

As many of you know I live in a very rural area.  Part of the cultural here is hunting, not for sport but, to put food on the table.  It's not one of my favorite things, I'll be honest.  I do love my husband's deer jerky.  I think I could eat a whole deer by myself.  It's that good!  And no I won't share the recipe, he won't even tell me how to make it so I know he's not going to share with the world.  In an effort to embrace some of what my husband and his son enjoy so much. I had originally thought I could purchase the apron I wanted or more precisely could get it as Christmas present.  Sadly, there wasn't one to be purchased. They don't make an apron for a full figured woman who doesn't want flour all over the girls.



Remember that dress form from last week?  That's what I used to make the pattern.  I'll show you Monday how to make a pattern.   I wanted an apron that fully covered my breasts.  I always have half a breast hanging out on each side.  Those don't really work to keep your shirt clean.  So I made a pattern that covered everything up top.  The downside was I had to put a dart in it but that's OK.  Let's get this project started.

What You'll Need:

  • 1 yard of fabric (you don't have to use camo, but this is what I used )
  • 1/4 - 3/4 yard of contrast color (1/2 yard if purchasing bias binding)
  • 1 inch wide Bias Binding (Made from 1/4 of your contrast color or purchased)
  • Thread matching contrast color
  • Pattern Piece for Top
  • Sewing Notions - scissors, pins, rotary mat, rotary cutter, iron, ironing board, etc.

The first thing you'll want to do is make the bias binding.  I used the method featured here.  I used an 18" square instead of two smaller squares.  I also used one of my Christmas presents, a bias binding maker.  They are handy tools if you want to make perfectly coordinated bias binding.  Set it aside.

All seam allowances are 1/4" inch unless otherwise stated.

Next cut out your top and skirt.  The skirt will be a rectangle, the width equal to the width of your top, and the length is determined by the length from your waist to just above your knee.  If your top needs a dart, now is the time to sew it in.  Now, we pin the bias binding on to the top and the skirt. There is no need to put bias binding across the bottom of your top or the top of your skirt.


Now you need to cut your "waistband".  I cut mine two inches wide from my contrasting color.  Sew your top, right sides together, to your waist band.


Now sew the skirt to the waist band, right sides together.

It's time to make the straps now.  You'll need two for the top and two for the waist.  I measured the width of the arm straps, this includes the ends of the bias binding, 1 and 3/4 inches.  I cut my strap twice that plus half an inch.  DO NOT FORGET THE HALF INCH, that's your seam allowance.  So mine were 4" wide x the width of the fabric.  They can be trimmed later if need be.  Do the same for your waist. Fold each strap in half, right sides facing, and sew, forming a tube.  Press the seam open.

Turn the tube right side out and press flat with the seam centered.

Now attach the straps.  You'll need to turn the end of each strap in a 1/2" inside so you end up with a clean edge.  Attach to your top and waist band as pictured below.  This also makes all of your edges clean.



I did a criss cross, left to right side and right to left side, back with my top straps.  I attached each strap at the waistband as shown below.  Trim the straps if needed.


CAREFULLY, line your needle up so you are stitching over the same stitches you used to attach the binding, through the waistband, and ending in the stitches of the bias binding at the bottom.  Do this for both sides.


If your waistband straps are too long cut them to the right length , turn the ends in and sew along the end to close it.  I left mine long so I could tie it in the front.  That's it!  You now have yourself a cute camo apron, to impress the men in your life.

DIY Dress Form

Today we are going to look at how we can make our own dress forms.  I have wanted one forever but just couldn't justify the costs.  I make some clothing but I don't make them all the time.  I am also fairly narrow shouldered and busty.  I hadn't found any standard dress forms that fit me and a custom one runs a little over $400.  Certainly, not in my budget.  So what's a girl to do?  Make one!


You'll need one for one of my upcoming blog posts.  So if you don't have one, whip one of these up while you wait for the post to come out.

I had originally pinned this idea almost a year ago.  It's now a paid subscription video.  It's not the version I ended up using anyway.  The thought of being wrapped up in plastic wrap and then duck tape made me a little claustrophobic.  I had been sitting on this idea for almost a year when I came across another idea.  I was looking for some tips on tailoring my husbands shirts when at the end of the video was a dress form idea.  Start the video at 1:39 for the dress form.



So here are some first hand tips.


  • You need some help.  Make sure your help is someone you are comfortable having touch you. The girls get rubbed a lot.
  • Go to the bathroom before you start.
  • Buy lots of tape.  At least 3 rolls, I used 2 and half.  
  • Go around with the tape, then up and down, and then around again.  Three layers of tape at least.  
  • If you want it to be pretty use a role of the decorative tape for the top layer.
  • Start filling it as soon as you are done.  The tape will start to pull away from the t-shirt.
  • Put a piece of PVC in the middle so you can put it on a stand.
  • Be prepared to have to start over.

Christmas Review and Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

I'm so excited to be writing this post!  I along with about fifty other bloggers have teamed up with King of Christmas to give one of our readers a $300 Amazon Gift Card.  More details about that later.  Let's talk Christmas at my house first.

So this year we did a small Christmas Eve get together.  It was all snack food.  I know not the healthiest of things but it was fun.  I also had some helpers in the kitchen so I got to do a little teaching too.  I really do enjoy helping others learn in the kitchen.  It was all gluten free too and no one knew!

So the first thing we made was homemade potato chips.  Super simple to do with a mandolin.  Scrub up your potatoes, slice them on the mandolin, and put them in ice cold water.  I usually just fill the sink and let them soak for about an hour.  Then drain them and fry them in 375 oil until brown.  Lightly salt them when they come out of oil.  So much better than the ones you buy in the store.

I made this French Onion Dip from Will Cook For Smiles. It was so yummy!  Quick, easy, and I got to show that French Onion Dip doesn't come in a package at the store.

I know that this Kool-Aid Popcorn from Tasty Kitchen is geared more towards kids but our grown kids love it.  It also might have burst their bubbles to find out that my flavored popcorn was done with Kool-Aid.

I found a copycat recipe for Jose Pepper's dip.  I think it's a regional chain so you may not be familiar with it.  It's a white queso with spinach  Even if you don't like spinach give this dip a try.  You can't taste the spinach, I promise.

The King of Christmas is being very generous in sponsoring the $300 Amazon Gift Card but that's not all, the site is currently offering 25% any Cyprus Spruce or Scarlet Fir tree and free shipping using the COUPON CODE 25offtree.  The site offers trees from 5 foot to 12 foot.  There's even a section for giant trees if you need one bigger.  What I really love is  that the site offers unlit Christmas trees.  For those of us who want to put our own lights on this is becoming a rare find.  I so wish I had known about the site a few years ago when I purchased mine.  Be sure to come back daily to make sure you get all your entries for the giveaway.

Fleece Blanket Tips & Tricks

Finally, all the Christmas gifts are to their new owners so I can share what I've been up to for awhile now.  Over Thanksgiving weekend. JoAnn's had an amazing sale on fleece fabric and I stocked up.  I bought enough for each of my girl's night out group and this fabric for the kid, who is grown.  He'd been hinting about a fleece blanket forever.  I realized he really wanted one when he willingly went to JoAnn's with me and kept pointing out all the different patterns and how soft it was.
He's a deer hunter, and I got a lesson on camo from his dad.

Five blankets later and I've learned somethings that I thought I would pass along to you.  Just in case you ever want to do some yourself.  Each blanket was two pieces of fleece and they are sewn together, not tied.

You have to use some sort of spray basting to hold the two pieces together.  Otherwise things get wonky quick.  I had no basting spray in the house though when I started.  So what did I do?  HAIRSPRAY!  That's right just good ol' hairspray that all of us have in the bathroom.  Spray one piece of fabric until you can see the hairspray, it will glisten in the the light.  Then lay the other piece on top, rub over the fabric to make sure it smooth and it adheres to the other piece.  Wait about 10 minutes and you are good to sew.  When you are done just toss it in the washer and the hairspray comes right out.

Even though the hairspray holds the fabric together pretty well I didn't feel safe just letting it hold the two pieces together.  I also didn't want to pin the whole thing either.  So what did I use?  BINDER CLIPS!  Holds the fabric together well and there is no chance of you running over it with the sewing machine.  Well, I guess you could run over it but they are pretty big you should see them. 

Sewing through four layers of the fleece after it had been turned right side out was about all my newer sewing machine could handle.  The older Necchi that is in the house had no problems at all.  You'll have to trim your fabric up before you start so take some of your scraps and test your machine.  If all else fails, hand stitch it shut.  

I don't know if I'll ever take on five blankets in such a short time again but the ones who got them are happy and warm.  That's what really matters right?
