my first of the 50… took a minute and a half, lol

Reading Sleeves.

Ok, we all know what they really are, but Reading Sleeves is a fun name. My heat goes down to 50 at night so as I lay in bed reading for an hour it is quite chilly. My hands get crazy cold outside of the covers, as well as my arms, which get bare when my pj sleeves fall down so here is my solution.
I just cut the sleeves from an unwanted hoodie and popped a hole in the right place.


I had stopped posting in last years thread even though I was still making things. So here’s to posting all year! Everyone’s projects look great so far!

My first finished finished project is this Bugsy Backpack. I want to make a second one for a friend so I made mine first. That way any issues would happen on my bag. The skull fabric is from Black Sheep Fabrics. It was one I bought in Juneish of last year. So they don’t have it any longer. The other pieces are from Moda and Windhem.

So here’s to many more projects! (I actually have a quilt top almost done so should have a second one done soon!)


Nicely done! That zipper is amazing…and I do like all of the fabrics you combined!


This is fantastic! The fabrics and zipper are fantastic. :blue_heart:


Thank you! I can’t remember who the zipper came from. I know it was a custom group. I want to say Zorell or something similar to that. I find all these custom groups on Facebook and then drool over their products there.


That zipper charm fits very well with the fabric you used!
There’s a new quilt-along group if you’re interested. We share tips, tricks, and encourage each other along the way. We’d love to see the quilt you’re working on! How many quilts did you do last year? I remember seeing a few on this thread.


I am finally feeling crafty enough to join in on this. Last year was hard to get any motivation but this year I am determined to get more done while I have the time. I don’t have 50 projects yet but I am sure as I go I will come up with them.


  1. old 70s needlepoint of a greenhouse
  2. crochet cardigan wrap thingy I have had the yarn set aside for 2 years now hope I still like it
  3. embroidery sampler of my own design
  4. stickers for my planner with my Cricut
  5. seasonal cards with my Cricut.
  6. wooden earring holder

Things I haven’t decided on quite yet:
painted stained glass, this needs more experiments to decide what to do exactly.
Stained glass birds for my mom, and mother in law.

themes I would like to try out:
quilting something small,
filling a sketchbook,
punch needle,


I saw that! I plan on sharing quilts when I make them. I has completed 6 tops total last year. And two or three have been quilted and bound. I think one needs binding yet. The rest need to be quilted.
