the closet and a quickie weekend project

It is hard impossible to photograph a small dark closet. But here’s the fruit of yesterday’s labors. I just want to keep the closet door open all the time and stare. When I began this project it was supposed to be shelves for kids craft stuff and my fabric. But they were relegated to a big basket beside their little table.

This weekend, I made these little cuffs for Emma and me. One of those spur of the moment crafts. They were easy and fun. To Emma’s I added some grosgrain ribbon and then both are tied with a tiny loop of RicRac and a button. With mine, I was able to singe the ends with a match to keep it from fraying, but Emma’s just burned. oops. I’ll have to look for some of this for her cuff. It was a fun project. And I think they’d make great little birthday gifts for the little people in my life. I mean, if the cuffs are cool enough. I never really know anymore….!

  1. Yay! What a great closet full of fabrics. Your Grandma’s fabrics are fantastic! The cuffs look great-I love the little rick rack loop

  2. looking at your closet is inspiring me to get a little order in my fabric stash. Oh to have fabrics like the ones from you grandma – how lovely.

  3. What a great idea on the cuffs. A bit daggy to dress the same, but oh so cool to share great tast in jewellery 🙂

    Your cupboard looks great – I did that with my pantry last week. Don’t know myself now that I can find ‘stuff’!

  4. i think you have a great photo of your closet! I love those cuffs, they are so awesome. I am so glad you like your goodies, maybe I’ll have to make some wee hairpins for your little one ;0

  5. I think I’d have to sit and stare at the stash of fabric too, beautiful! The little cuffs are a great idea(it must be cool if Emma’s agreed to wear it for a picture 🙂

  6. You know you give my courage for doing the same thing ! My craft room is like an exploded one with fabrics all around !! I must clean and reorganize all !! I promise to do it when I’ll be off this week 🙂 Did the bunny arrived to you yet ?! OOOh I’m so impatient 🙂
