WhipUp.net has a great tutorial on how to embellish a boring ol’ tape measure, something I’ve been meaning to do with a couple of freebies I have lying around. These scrumptious wool-felt boxes by Hable Construction have kickstarted my creative juices and launched them into high gear.
More inspiration from Down Under over here and here. Craftapalooza’s handstitched pincushions are also SO very delectable. (She graciously provided a tutorial, too!) A few of my in-laws sew and quilt, so these might just be what Kris Kringle ordered for my anti-consumerist Christmas. Any excuse, really, to go thrifting for fabric and felted sweaters.
