It is a holiday weekend, and that means no work on Monday! However, instead of packing up and heading to Northern Wisconsin this weekend I’m going to stick around the city and get stuff done. Here is my weekend to do list:
Sew: Need to add a zipper in to the David the Gnome pillowcase I made a few weeks ago
Do laundry. Did you know you could make your own detergent?
Some of you may be familiar with the saying “put a bird on it!” from the television show Portlandia on IFC. Well, yesterday, my cousin introduced me to the saying “put an Oero in it!”
For example, don’t just make a chocolate chip cookie – make a chocolate chip cookie with an Oero in the center; or, don’t just make brownies – make brownie-covered Oreos! This may seem a bit indulgent, but what delicious baking treat isn’t? Here are a couple recipes for Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies: Amandeleine’s recipe and Becky Bakes’ recipe and Picky Palate’s Brownie Covered Oreos.
A few weeks ago, The Needle Shop was having a 15% off all fabric sale, and I went a little hog wild on buying fabric; however, I didn’t really have any projects in mind. So after a few weeks of looking at the pile of fabric, I chose to take the remnant cotton fabric and make a circular scarf. Yes, it is similar to the style of the American Apparel circular scarf – it’s just a lot cheaper. It was super easy, and I will have the step-by-step guide up later this week.
