Time Out

Christmas is coming, so most of our renovation funds have gone to gifts lately. Being completely sick of cleaning and organizing, I’ve turned to completing some unfinished crafts.
I started this t-shirt blanket for my sister ages ago. It’s much bigger than I thought it would be. I added bias tape to the edges, but don’t like how it tuned out. I’m not sure if I’ll buy different tape or just hem it.
I’m also making a T-shirt blanket for myself from all my GameStop T-shirts. I want to make one big enough to cover the Lovesac, but I don’t think I have the space to properly construct something of that proportion. I took pictures of every shirt today so I could assemble the design on my computer. I’d prefer to lay it out by hand but I don’t have a flat surface that big. Well, not without moving a lot of furniture. I laid a few out on the floor today just to see what they would look like as a blanket.
I made some pillow cases from fabric I had laying around. Aaron received a coffee gift basket that had a folded burlap sack as packaging, and I sewed that into pillows as well. The burlap was a bit unwieldy to sew. I just stuffed in a pillow that no longer matched our decor. The pillow on the left is identical to the one I stuffed into the burlap on the right. They tuned out better than I expected!

I’ve made quite a few duct tape wallets as well. I’ve made lots for friends, family, and for myself. I just make them for fun, but I get complements on them often. The typical style I make is pictured below. There’s a slot for cash and a hidden pocket behind the three interior pockets on each side. I intend to sell some online sometime soon, probably on Etsy. I need to do a little more research and set up accounts to make that possible, so that may be a while.
