Monster! Monster!

It must be a theme. Upcycled sweater monsters. Clay workshop monsters. Who knew?

If you haven’t been inspired to make the previous projects I made for MIY Magazine; the coffee cozy or the pillow, THIS might be the project for you. And with Halloween coming up, what better time? Although these guys are good to have around all year round. What great gifts for the little ones!

I made the one sitting on the chair and Sheila Sinclair Snyder of License to Quilt made the one on the floor.  I’m thinking by now they’ve bonded during their stay at MIY corporate headquarters, but too bad….because as soon as they come back to us they are going to be split up to go to separate homes. Not worry! I’m going to make a few more so my little monster guy has some buddies.

So don’t forget to get your Fall/Winter 2014 issue of MIY Magazine. You will be hooked on these crazy good craft ideas.

Happy crafting!

Another upcycled sweater project from MIY Magazine

Upcycled Sweater Coffee Cozy

This Coffee Cozy is a must have for winter!

The cool thing about this coffee cozy is that you can put your hand inside the cozy. Love that. Think snow, winter, rain, cold. You’ll be glad you hand can go inside the hidden sleeve.

Another fun upcycled sweater project to make! Check it out in the Fall/Winter 2014 issue of MIY Magazine.

Happy crafting!

Turn your old sweaters into beautiful pillows!

Yes you can! This project was oh so easy. For those of you who are familiar with my “Kapow! Flower” method, this pillow was made pretty much the same way.

Check out the instructions in the Fall/Winter 2014 issue of MIY Magazine!

Happy pillow making!
