Can’t wait to start my craft projects this year
Reserved for my 50 projects list…
So I don’t have a list up but I did decide to start noting down my projects so now I will know (if I remember to write them down XD) what I have done this year.
I did two this weekend first up I made a couple masks for a friend and I to wear to a live show for NADDPOD last night. I don’t have pictures of my friends but I love how mine turned out. I used some iron on vinyl and my cricut to do the quote and potion bottle.
And then I had a couple small picture frames and some photos I got from work last year at my old job. So I did want any child would do and made favorite grandkid photo frames with my picture. Again I used my cricut to cut some vinyl. I tried some dollar store vinyl and I think for a dollar pretty decent. (I did share this project with my friends and one said that the photo looks like I’m super uncomfortable and honestly always in photos). I maybe should’ve done a different color vinyl or trimmed the photos a little but I think it’s fine.
This was my weekend I guess as I got two more projects done.
First a bowl cozy. I wasn’t sure what to get for my grandpa for a Christmas but this seemed like a good gift. Probably will make some cookies or something to go with it.
Second I made my roommate and I matching ice cream cozies. They hold a pint of ice cream and now are super cute!
Great projects! I’m sure your grandpa will love it!
And now I really wish we had ice cream.
I finally finished the crochet blanket I started in May last year!
@poetrylover828 - those ice cream cozies! haha! so practical, yet FUN!
@mellybelly81 - I AGGRESSIVELY LOVE THIS BLANKET!!! do you have close up photos? the colors are fantastic!
Thank you! Honestly our apartment is just so cold that even if we want ice cream it’s no fun holding the containers so these help. And I like that they match!
I will try to keep an updated list here this year! @roler suggested I do so in the past. I post everything I make in the Nerd Games craftalong, but those aren’t posted in one post. I finished 95 projects last year. It would be great to see them all in one spot. So here goes!

So I Embroidered a jacket
So I had a couple projects last year for the pattern company Ellie and Mac and now that I have a Cricut I can do some of their cut files. So I made these two shirts using the cut files they have on sale this week.
I had fun making the My Parent is my BFF and My Sibling is my BFF shirts. I used premade shirts and some Cricut brand HTV. The cut files were easy to use. I did the sibling one for my brother because I thought it would be a funny gift (we had a late holiday get together so I made it for that). So he looks less than excited XD And then I made the parent one for myself. I thought it was fun and even though I am an adult I thought it would be nice to show my parents a little love.
Here is my affilate link if anyone wants to check out the cut files or any of the fun patterns they have on sale. The patterns are digital so you will have to print and then tape them together. But I have found their patterns easy to understand as a beginner in clothes sewing. Weekly Sale & Free Patterns – Ellie and Mac
I am planning on getting some sewing done soon. I think the dark winter has me extra tired. Plus I had a long week last week with work and family stuff on days off. So here’s hoping I am able to catch up on sleep over this week and coming weekend.
