The shewolfe craftworks website was launched on the evening of 21 October 2015. Much of the data in this report will have minimal meaning since everything is new. However, it does offer some real value in that it provides the true starting information for a brand new website. You are not getting amazing numbers a year after it began but the piddly numbers and the struggles of the beginning.
Everybody likes these things! I have tried many washcloth patterns but this is the one I make again and again. It works well for kitchen and bath and seems to last a little longer than many of the others while still looking good. It just works, period. Make it up in colours, and it looks like something special. Done up in white or natural, it looks like an expensive spa cloth. The pattern is super easy and makes up quickly so answering all the requests for washcloths won't take (too) long. And I know you get asked for them because we all do. I've been making these for long enough that I never bothered to write down the pattern. Until now. So here is the pattern for the Best Washcloth Ever. Don't forget to make some for yourself!
White glue (school glue, PVA glue) is versatile, easy to clean up, safe for little hands and paws, quick to dry, dries clear, paintable and it's ridiculously inexpensive. You can use it to stick all manner of things together, create decorative surfaces, seal paper and fabric, or provide a coat of protection to a surface. But white glue out of the bottle doesn't always have the right consistency for a project or you need a slightly different kind of product for your project. Knowing how to modify white glue means you can avoid buying a variety of glues or special products for your projects. White glue doesn't work for everything, but it works well in a lot of projects that do not need to be completely waterproof or of archival quality. So before you run out to buy that special glue, sealer or paint, try modifying your white glue.
Your recycling box (or someone else's) is a handy place to get sewing supplies at zero cost. With findings, fabric and notions costing what they do, you'd do well to look more closely at what you are throwing out. You think it's garbage? Think again. Here are 10 things to keep before you decide to toss it to the curb.
