Apartment DIY: Tuesday Morning Edition

Happy Tuesday morning :) I'm currently putting off grading the last 15 exams that I waited until the very last day of break to grade. Go me! Here's my best effort at procrastination... enjoy :) Also, I realize these are not very winter-y colors. Deal with it.

1. Felt Citrus Coasters. I'm sure you could totally make something else just as cute,
but these are awesome. I need a sewing machine, like, 5 minutes ago.

2. Button Embroidery Hoops. Because... duh. They are adorable.
Someone on Pinterest (obvi) suggested making them small enough to be
Christmas ornaments. Cute idea! Also, christmas colors? Probably.

3. This blanket is the sole reason that I'm having my lovely friend Becca teach me how
to crochet. Because it's SO pretty and I want it in my apartment, now.

4. Vintage Faucet Coat Hangers. First of all, this picture quality is garbage, but it's still a really 
pretty idea. I might consider it, but it also might not go with anything else in my apartment.

In other news, school starts tomorrow. I am dreading it. It's going to be pretty damn hard to wake up in the morning and I'm sure I'll come home to a mess from some very angry/neglected puppies after 13 days of being off and home with them. Poor little things. Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday :)

  1. I love all this!!! When you learn to crochet I will pay you to make me a blanket like that. I am mastering my sewing machine and really can't take on anything else new.

    Adore the button embroidery hoops. Ya know, we could set up a Skype chat and totally virtually craft together while making those! Would you be interested?

  2. Yes! I will teach you. I don't know how to do that exact pattern, but I'm sure we can figure it out. I know how to do the stitches, so that's a start!

  3. Those coat hangers are beautiful. I for one do not mind the splash of color in this pretty gray winter.

    Happy New Year!


  4. Okay I need to learn to crochet just so I can make that blanket. WANT.

  5. I just learnt to crochet for that reason too! Although I want a granny square blanket, I could probably deal with one like that too! Have fun learning,it's really fun to do!
