Laundry Bag for College!!!

I simply bought three yards of House ware fabric and cut it to a piece 58'' by 28'' i then folded the two short sides over a 1/4 of an inch and stitched them. I then Folded the top edge over about an inch (eyeballed) and stitched it down, i wanted to make sure i would have enough room to pull the Safety pin with the draw string through! i then folded the bag over and sewed the two remaining raw edges together. I pulled the draw string through with a safety pin and tied it. using a fork i frayed the ended of the string to make it look a little better! I then Simply inserted the bag into the basket, the bag becomes a liner for the basket and i can simply pull it out when its full and carry it to the laundry room that is located outside the apartment, and if i need to go to the laundry mat it looks better than carrying a basket with all my clothes hanging out!!!

a blog much needed.............

I have ben quite busy... now that musical and bi-county are over i finally have time to create. The last weekend in March i went to Mass. and took classes at the Sue Gilman tradeshow. I took an awesome class from time holtz and at the end of the class he gave us each a stamp set. from his new collection from Stampers Anonymous. Well you all know me, i cant just own one stamp set from Tim Holtz. So when ABW and I got home, we ordered all but 2 sets. The card above was made, using the following sets: Fairytale Frenzy, Sketch Elements, Urban TApestry, Floral Tattoo, Slight Alterations and School Desk. All of the sets are amazing. I simply stamped all of the images in black or white on 2 diffrent colors of orange and a sheet of blackthen i cut them out, distressed some, ripped the edges of some, layed some on black mirror paper. i then layered, glue and stapled, i applied some black cobweb ribbon from Mayarts and added a date stamp from 7gypsies.
