Knotted Knit Bathroom Rug

As you know by now, since I haven’t stopped talking about it yet, my daughter’s wedding was held in the small field between our house and our little red barn.  Because we were holding the whole thing outdoors, one of our first considerations was a bathroom.

We looked into renting a port-a-potty style, but frankly nothing about those says wedding.  We saw some beautiful trailer-style restrooms to rent at a bridal show, but they would have obliterated our budget.  Being the handy guy he is, my husband decided to build one onto the back of our barn.  He ended up using mostly repurposed or left over supplies, and the whole thing cost us about $300.  On top of that, it was adorable.  I’m not going to show you the entire thing yet, because I’d like to share some of the things we made to go into it before the big reveal.  I’m starting with this unassuming but foot-friendly little rug.

I made each of the bridesmaids and the flower girl grey knit robes, and a white one for the bride, so they would have something to wear while they got ready.  Making six robes left me with lots of scraps, so I used those to make this.  You could also cut up t-shirts. 

I cut strips that were about 1” wide and 6” long.  If my notes are correct (forgive me, a lot was going on) I ended up with 1092 grey and 185 white.  I didn’t use all of them.  I’d recommend counting the holes to get a good estimate of how many you’ll need.

For the base I used the same type of mesh used for latch hook rugs.  You can buy it by the yard at the fabric store.  I cut mine 16 by 24”.  I happened to have some of this on hand, so this project cost me nothing out of pocket!

To bind the edges, I cut strips of knit that were 2” wide by the length of each side, plus a few inches.  Starting with the short sides, I overlapped the strip so it was covering the edge and stitched through all three layers on the sewing machine.

Knotted Knit Rug - Crafty Staci 4

For the long sides I did the same, only I turned the ends under about 1/2”.

Knotted Knit Rug - Crafty Staci 5

The corners should overlap.

I used a pointy stick to push the ends of the small strips up through the holes from the bottom.

Knotted Knit Rug - Crafty Staci 7

Both ends should come up through adjacent holes.

Knotted Knit Rug - Crafty Staci 8

I only tied these once, rather than a square knot, because I found it was too bulky otherwise.  The knit holds well and none of them have come untied.

Knotted Knit Rug - Crafty Staci 9

I skipped a row of the mesh so only one strip of fabric is in each hole.  I also skipped a row when starting the next.  Again, it was too bulky if I didn’t.  This is what the back ends up looking like.

Because of its size this rug is pretty heavy, but it’s great to stand on because it’s so thick.  It held in place well on the wood floor of the bathroom at the wedding, but slides around a bit on some tile.  The newlyweds are still using it in the bathroom at their new apartment!

Kissing Bell

I’m still trying to locate some photos of many of the things we made for the wedding.  We were so busy that day, and the days leading up to it, we didn’t get a chance to take pictures.  Unfortunately, I’m starting to think some of it will have to live on in our memories and I won’t be able to share it all here.  While I wait it out a little longer, I thought I’d tell you about a fun thing we did that was a hit with the not-quite-tall-enough-for-a-rollercoaster crowd.

Kissing Bell - Crafty Staci 1

At a wedding, guests will often tap their glass with their fork to make that clinking noise as a signal the bride and groom should share a kiss.  At the last wedding we attended before my daughter’s the newlyweds were driven a bit bonkers with glass-clinking.  But because we were using mason jars and those silver-looking plastic forks, that wasn’t going to be an option.  I wasn’t about to let them off the hook though.

I considering putting a small bell at each guests’ spot.  I also thought about just putting one larger bell in the center of each table.  As I mentioned last week, we had lots of kids in attendance, so I was afraid every parent there would hate me by the end of the night.  Instead, we decided to go with one bell, and it worked out perfectly!

I made this sign using my vinyl cutting machine and some of the leftover grey vinyl from the glasses.

Kissing Bell - Crafty Staci 2

After a little searching, I found this bell on Amazon.  I was surprised at how good the quality was, especially for the price, and I’m pretty sure you can hear this thing ringing for miles.

Kissing Bell - Crafty Staci 3

We hung it just above adult eye level to make it a little tougher for the kids to overuse it.  It was adorable to watch two little brothers we know try to help each other reach it.  We also added the “2 rings per customer please” to the sign to help with the ones who were a little older.  Believe it or not, it worked, and I’m pretty sure everyone who wanted a shot at ringing it found a way.

Kissing Bell - Crafty Staci 4

We liked the bell so much, we hung it on one of the cedar posts by our front door after the wedding.  Without the kissing sign, of course.

As if these two needed any encouragement.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase

I love Oregon, but I find this time of year a little frustrating.  Don’t get me wrong, there are things I love about fall, like apples, pumpkins and boots.  Oh, the boots.  But the inconsistency in the temperature drives me a little nuts.  One minute I’m freezing, the next I’m roasting.  When you live here, you learn to dress in layers.  But nighttime is a little harder to solve.  This project was made to help a friend in the hospital who wanted something soft by his face, but I think I’ve found an easy solution to my freezer/oven problem.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 1

This is a basic pillowcase, but the secret is using woven cotton fabric on one side and super-soft Minky, or other soft fleece, on the other.  If you’re too warm, flip it to the cotton side for instant cooling.  If you’re trying to warm up, the fleece is the side you want.

To make this, you’ll need 14” of woven cotton fabric, 14” of fleece, 12” of woven cotton for the cuff and 3” of woven cotton for the accent.  The fleece will probably be wider than the cotton (54” vs 42”), so you’ll need to cut it to the same size so each piece is 14 by 42”.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 2

Sew two of the 42” sides together with wrong sides together and a slightly less than 1/4” seam.  Turn the pieces so the right sides are together and press the seam on the cotton fabric side.  Stitch again with a slightly larger than 1/4” seam.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 3

What you should have at that point is a piece that measures 27” long and 42” wide with a French seam running down the middle.  Set that piece aside for a moment. 

Fold your 3” accent piece in half with wrong sides together and press.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 4

Take your cuff piece and lay it face up on your workspace.  Mine is a little deceiving here because I happened to find a piece that was printed with two different colors.  You could certainly piece two prints together if you’d like a different color on each side of your pillow, but what’s shown here is just one piece.

Lay the accent piece on top, lining up the raw edges.  As you can see on the right, they may not match up on the end.  That’s okay – we’ll deal with it shortly.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 5

Lay the cotton/fleece piece on top of that with the right side down and raw edge matching the others.  If you did piece the cuff, make sure to match up the seams of both pieces. 

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 6

Starting from the bottom edge, carefully roll up the cotton/fleece until it’s past the center of the cuff but not all the way to the top edge.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 7

Fold the bottom edge of the cuff up and over the roll and match the raw edge to the raw edges at the top.  Pin in place.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 8

Stitch 1/4” from the raw edge all the way across.  Pull the roll from the inside out one end to turn everything right side out.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 9

I’d recommend checking your seam to make sure you caught all the layers in it before turning.  The fleece is a little slippery and you don’t want to end up with this hot mess.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 10

Cut off the accent, cuff and body to match the shortest of the three.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 11

Line up the edges with wrong sides together and stitch a scant 1/4” seam down the side and across the bottom.  I always go way under 1/4”, just make sure you’re catching both layers.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 12

Turn the pillowcase wrong side out.  Press the seam on the cotton side.  Stitch a bit over 1/4” from each edge.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 13

Turn the pillowcase right side out and press the seams one last time on the cotton side.

Hot and Cold Pillowcase - Crafty Staci 14

I’m ready now, Autumn.  Bring it on.

Kids’ Wedding Coloring Book

We knew there would be lots of little ones in attendance at my daughter’s wedding.  She really wanted to include them, but we were a little worried they might get bored.  We bounced around ideas like some yard games, but they really couldn’t do that during the ceremony.  We found a couple of cute kids’ coloring books for weddings on Pinterest, and once we decided to seat everyone at tables for the ceremony, we knew that would be a perfect way to keep the young crowd entertained.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci

My talented niece Keely drew the photo for the front to represent Codi and John.  I love the way it turned out! 

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 1

I made a word search using wedding and Codi and John-specific words for the first page on the inside, using this website from Discovery.  I probably should have used fewer words because the letters were pretty small, but I figured it would be a good challenge for the slightly older kids.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 2

The next page was just a simple cupcake outline, since that’s what we were serving at the reception, that could be decorated however the artist chose.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 3

Following the cupcake was my favorite page, Wedding Guest Bingo.  I was kinda busy at the reception, so I don’t know how the kids did on this, but it was fun to make.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 4

The Wedding Mad Libs was a tricky one, because you don’t want the participant to see where the words are going when they choose them.  I went with a brief description and lines for the words on one page…

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 5

…and the Mad Lib itself to fill in on the next.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 6

I found this fun website that has mazes for all the letters of the alphabet in both upper and lowercase, so I chose an S for the newlyweds’ last name.  I also added their little heads to show the start and finish points.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 7

The back of the book had a spot for the artist to write his or her name, but I was stumped for a while on what else to add there.  It finally occurred to me it would be fun to decorate the getaway car!  They were taking my daughter’s Kia Soul, so I found a photo and traced it to create the cartoon car.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 8

It would have been easy enough to just lay these on the tables, but we really wanted to take it a step farther.  We put each book in a yellow bag and added a box of crayons, a small lollipop and a couple of glow stick bracelets for when it got dark later.  I made labels with each kid’s name on them and a second label for the bottom with their table number so whoever put them out would know where each one should go.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 9

It was kind of nice to have that pop of yellow scattered around on the tables.

Kids Wedding Coloring Book - Crafty Staci 10

These bags were a big hit with the kids at the wedding, and none of them were left behind afterward.  I’m pretty sure those coloring books saved a parent or two’s sanity, if only for a few minutes!

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns

My daughter’s now-husband was a typical groom when it came to the wedding planning.  He was happy to be there, but didn’t have many things he was opinionated about.  Because of that, when he did express a desire to have something we tried to make it happen.  These little lanterns just happened to be one of those things.

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns - Crafty Staci 1

This is a project the bride and groom took on themselves and had finished in no time.  I wish I could show you a photo of the two of them working away at it, but I failed to take any.  If I could go back and do it over, that’s the one thing I would change.  More photos.

Anyway, to make these, remove the lids from the jars.  Lay the ring top down on a piece of wood and find a large nail.

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns - Crafty Staci 2

Make two marks directly across from each other and hammer the nail through at those points to create holes.

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns - Crafty Staci 3

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns - Crafty Staci 4

Cut a length of wire that will allow the jar to hang at whatever height you choose, plus a couple of inches extra on each end.  Feed the wire up through the hole and twist it around itself.

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns - Crafty Staci 5

Repeat on the other side and twist back onto the jar.  Add a candle and it’s ready to go.

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns - Crafty Staci 6

We went with all battery-operated candles for the wedding for three reasons.  The first, and most important, is that we knew there would be a lot of little kids in attendance and we didn’t want any of them getting burned.  Second, we didn’t want to burn the forest surrounding our house down.   That one was pretty important too.  The last reason was convenience.  We were able to turn the candles on while decorating earlier in the day. 

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns - Crafty Staci 7

As it started to get dark, all of the candles started to gradually become more obvious because they were already lit.  It created a pretty glow as the evening progressed.

Hanging Mason Jar Votive Lanterns - Crafty Staci 8

If you don’t happen to have any of our above issues, these would also be lovely with a real candle.  Come to think of it, these would make a great wedding favor for your guests too.  Chalk one up for the groom!

Quilt! Knit! Stitch!

It’s been a very long time since I attended a sewing show.  In fact, it’s probably been more than 10 years.  When I saw that Quilt! Knit! Stitch! was making it’s Portland debut, I decided maybe it was time to give it another go.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch!

I got my daughter on board with the Knit! part, but I was a little skeptical that the $10 per person entry fee, plus parking, was going to be worth it.  That seemed a little steep considering I knew it was going to be full of vendors also wanting a peek into my wallet.  I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised.  We ended up spending over three hours there!

There were two sides to the show:  display pieces and vendors.  We started on the display side, which was set up like a museum.  The first thing we came to was a Community Garden.  It was a fabric tree covered in flowers made by attendees.  They offered to let us make some to add, but we were anxious to see what was ahead.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 3

There were some truly amazing works of art.  They started with those made of yarn, like this crochet piece from local Jo Hamilton, representing the city of Portland.

Quilt Knit Stitch - Crafty Staci 2

This quilt, called Gathering Hearty Roses, was made by a group of four quilters from Japan who have been creating together for 20 years.  Aiko Miyata, Norimi Tashiro, Nobuko Kotani and Reiko Terui each made one of the hearts, then put them together.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 4

I couldn’t get a photo that would do justice to Scarlett’s Crimson by Philippa Naylor from the U.K.  She drafted the pattern, then used piecing, quilting and applique to create this beauty.  She was inspired by 1950’s couture ball gowns.

I love the color and style of Indian Summer Sunset by Shirley Gisi from Colorado.

Jane Sassaman was inspired to make Illinois Album by the rural areas of her own state.

Cindy Hickok, from Texas, had several 3D pieces made with machine embroidery, but my favorite was See the U.S.A.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 8

Alice’s Kitchen by Miki Murakami of Japan was a real eye-catcher.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 9

We moved on to the vendor side, which seemed to go on forever.  One the first booths we stepped into remained one of our favorites.  We even went back to it at the end to buy a book and chat with the author, Kay MacKenzie.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 10

You can visit Kay at her book website and applique blog.  She had so many cute things, but the Studio sign, which is in the above book, is the first thing I want to make.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 11

There were a few trends we spotted while we shopped.  Wool felt projects were everywhere.  Bertie’s Year, from Bonnie Sullivan, was a particularly fun set of patterns.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 12

Another prevalent theme was super-tiny quilts.  It really made me want to give one a try.  Imagine how happy we were when we walked by the Moda Bakeshop booth and they handed us each of us a sweet pack of 2 1/2” squares!

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 13

You know how much I love to rip out a seam, but after holding this seam ripper from Lumenaris in my hand, I had to have one.  This thing is the perfect size and weight.  I’ve already used it, and I’m very happy to add it to my tool box.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! - Crafty Staci 14

Overall, Quilt! Knit! Stitch! was a fun afternoon.  My daughter was hoping for more knitting and crochet patterns, but she enjoyed admiring the yarn.  I’m hoping the show returns next year!

Cedar Log Ring Bearer Box

I don’t remember how it started, whether my son volunteered or my daughter asked, but it came to be that my son, Tucker, was assigned the job of making something for the ring bearer to carry the rings in for the wedding ceremony.  It seemed appropriate since Tucker was the best man and would have to remove them from whatever he came up with in front of a crowd of people. 

Cedar Log Wedding Ring Bearer Box - Crafty Staci 1

Tucker took all the metals classes his high school had to offer, and threw in wood shop near the end.  His dad is a wood worker, so he had a bit of experience in that area already.  Recently, he’s also taken up leather working, so he didn’t have any trouble coming up with an idea for the ring box.  He spent hours in the school shop, then at home after he graduated, lovingly turning a plain log into an heirloom his sister and new brother-in-law will treasure forever.

Cedar Log Wedding Ring Bearer Box - Crafty Staci 2

Once he had finished the box, we talked about what should go inside.  He had carefully carved out a rectangular hole, which seemed perfect to fit a pillow into.  He was planning to sew the pillow himself, but time was running short, so I took care of it for him.  I’ll be explaining more about this in a future story, but I made the pillow out of a piece of my cut-up wedding dress and a leather cord.

Cedar Log Wedding Ring Bearer Box - Crafty Staci 3

The ring bearer, my nephew Greyson, carried that box like a champ.  He’s a little hard to spot in this photo, but it’s the only one I have of him so far.  He was the best ring bearer ever!

Cedar Log Wedding Ring Bearer Box - Crafty Staci 4

I was a little worried it would be hard for Tucker to unbuckle those leather straps when it was time to hand over the rings.  I should have known better than to think he’d do that to himself.

Cedar Log Wedding Ring Bearer Box - Crafty Staci 5

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen my son work on something with such care for so long as he did this box.  He and his sister are very close, and I know he wanted to make her something special, not only for the wedding, but as a keepsake to remember what a great day it was.  He hit it out of the park.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors

Welcome to my first Wedding Wednesday!  I made a list of all the different things I want to tell you about, and if I actually find photos and address one per week, we should be done somewhere around Easter.  I’ll try to condense a little.

I want to start with one of my favorite and most lengthy projects – the wedding favors.  My daughter wanted to feature mason jars, so we decided early on that we’d use them as drinking glasses.  From there it morphed into painting them with a little chalkboard paint so guests could write their names on them, to painting the names on with glass paint, to cutting the names from permanent vinyl and adding a lid with a grommet and straw and making them the take-home wedding favors.  With about 225 invited guests and extra jars for surprises, it was an ambitious undertaking but one I was happy to take on.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 1

Last winter, my husband decided I needed a Silhouette Cameo.  I didn’t think I really did.  I figured it would be fun to play with once in a while, but would mostly just take up space.  Let me tell you, much of what I made for that wedding couldn’t have happened without it.  This post is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Silhouette, I’m just here to tell you that I’m a huge fan now.  I found the software easy to use, the prices and selection for art very reasonable and the learning curve to get started with the machine wasn’t nearly as bad as I expected.  Commercial over, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

I set up a template page for the names and just returned to it each time I needed to start a new one.  There were many, many pages.  I bought grey permanent vinyl on Amazon, which by happy accident ended up looking a little like the glasses were etched.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 2

I used cheap, clear vinyl over the top as a transfer medium, then cut all of the names apart.  All that was left once that was done was to wipe the jars down with rubbing alcohol and apply the names.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 3

While I was working on the glass, my husband was crafting the lids.  After doing a couple by hand, he did a little shopping and found this contraption.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 4

It was $65 on Ebay and came with some grommets.  When you’re looking at making nearly 20 dozen of these, that cost is so worth it.  To start, he drilled holes in the center of the lids with a 7/16” drill bit.  He ultimately used his drill press because he ended up with smoother holes and it took less time, but a regular drill can work too.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 5

He inserted the larger side of a #2 size (a tiny bit shy of 1/2”) grommet into the hole and slipped the smaller side onto the back.

A quick punch with the grommet-squisher…

And we had lids that straws fit into perfectly.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 8

Of course, since the wedding colors were yellow and grey, we searched the world for yellow straws.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 9

I couldn’t be happier with the way these turned out.  They worked well for holding the tea and lemonade we served, and the lid kept out the pesky bugs.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 10

We wanted to make sure guests understood that they could take these home, so I again used my Cameo to make a sign.  We just used 1/8” hickory plywood that my husband cut to size, added the lettering, and I found that cute mason jar (with the word Love on it already) in the Silhouette store.  I improvised the yellow vinyl straw.

Personalized Drinking Jar Wedding Favors - Crafty Staci 11

These were a huge hit with our guests and a great way to help them find their seats.  In fact, we only had one jar left behind at the end of the night!

Late Summer Preview

It’s August, and last time I really felt like life wasn’t made of pure chaos it was April.  I was absent from this space for much of July, but now I’ve caught my breath and I’m ready to dive back in.  To start out, I thought I’d give you a glimpse into what you can expect coming up.

First of all, the wedding was fantastic, and I have so much to share with you!  For the foreseeable future, we’re going to have Wedding Wednesdays.  I have some tutorials for things my husband and I made, and even one from the bride and groom. I also want to show you some amazing stuff, like the ring bearer box my son spent months crafting.  Don’t worry, I’ll try to slip some non-wedding projects in between those Wednesdays.

Here’s a sneak peek from their fantastic photographer, Heather Fitch.

Codi and John

I have a couple of sewing books I’ll be reviewing soon.  Super Stitches Sewing by Nicole Vasbinder and Basic Black by Sato Watanabe have been patiently sitting next to my computer.

Basic Black and Super Stitches Sewing

I also have some exciting news to share with West Coast vacationers from my friends at Undercover Tourist.  Especially timely, since I’ll be among you next month!  You can expect a new Disney craft to add to my collection soon.

Disney Crafts on Crafty Staci

All of my customizable items have been returned to my Etsy shop, including the pencil coffee sleeve that can have your favorite teacher’s name hand-embroidered on it.
