I am a stay at home mom who comes from a long line of crafters. Too bad for the most part crafting was absent from my life except in the form of gifts and item from my mothers family. Years after my maternal grandmother passed away, my mother and I decided to try our hands at quilting together. Needless to say, the very first quilt was nearly the end of it all...but between the two of us we pushed until it was finished. Countless quilts later there is a quilt made by my mother and sometimes by us both to be found in every family household. I have found that I can quilt, crochet, and knit, but I am a beginner at it all. The birth of my daughter basically put an end to it all until she reaches the point where she is not stealing my needles, hooks, or thread. She is three and I am thinking it will be soon.

craft interests: crochet, gifts, home decorating, jewelry making, knitting, memory making, quilting

Re: How to Make a Patchwork Laptop Case

I love this..a wonderful tutorial ang you used a well thought out group of fabrics..I noticed how well the print is reflected in the colors chosen for the solids..and that querky little dot print...just gives it the adorable touch. Sometimes I think it is hard to find a great project/tutorial as it is to have a trained enough eye to figure out the fabrics that can really bring it to life. MUG know someone that makes pretty quilts but if she would just expand her fabric choices a bit more they would be incredible ;). Thanks for the superb work!

Re: Crafty Inspiration: Plastic Bottle Purse

I actually did this craft from an article in FamilyFun Magazine last year. I used clear 2 liter bottoms, light pink zipper (sewn to the outside instead of the inside), dark pink thread, and attached a white grosgrain bow where the zipper ends met to cover the juncture. Daughters have used it to jingle little toys around inside and it has been much loved. In other words it is no longer picture ready ;)
