The Krafter Show - Series Premiere!

The first challenge is complete. I won't get the extra points for having an item that can be gifted or listed on Etsy, but I will use it in my sewing room.  

I like the "I'd rather be quilting" magnet but it looks kinda big and funny.  Thanks to Lois I had a brilliant idea.  The size of the magnet and lamp seemed just right for an "inchie"!  So I made my first one. 


So fast.  So fun.  So cute.  So small.  Really.  They are small.  Just an inch!  Do you know how small an inch is?!  Just the right size for this project.



Wrap up:
1.  Iron Craft ... repurposed a lamp
2.  Wow ... used yarn to gather the lampshade cover and to dress up/weight the bottom of the lampshade cover; used magnet to cover a blemish on the base of the lamp
3.  Brown Paper Bag item ... used cotton balls as pom poms on the end of the yarn bow
4.  I'll use it!
