Joyful Creations Combined with the Joy of Pyrex

Hello Fellow thrifters and Friends,

   Another wonderful Sunday afternoon in my craft room. I used one of my favorite inspirations today, PYREX! 

The first thing I did was choose a beautiful yellow polka dot fabric. My mom gave me this fabric for Christmas

I found a picture on the internet that I printed out and put on my light box. 

Once you have your design traced the real fun can begin

I chose the crazy daisy pattern as my inspiration on this project. 

I free handed the daisy flowers, which scared me a little because I am not good at drawing. However I thought they came out pretty cute. 

I love how no project is perfect because when I started using my white thread it got all knotted up and I could not get it out. I had to pull out that whole row of stitches and restart. Such is the life of a crafter. 

I found a lovely font to trace onto my project. 

Trace your wording onto your project. 

YAY! We are getting almost done

I found this great oval hoop at the craft store. I did not even know they came in an oval shape. I was pretty excited for a different style of hoop. 

Next I glued down the excess fabric around the frame


Here is the final project with its matching friends

What have you been working on lately?

  1. I am so impressed. I want to get back to needlework. I haven't done it in a few years. Yours looks great.

  2. Oh, how cute! I have never done needlework like this, only cross-stitch. But I was looking at some kits at a store yesterday. I would like to replicate some work like my grandmother did.
