To-Do: Projects from Pinterest

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I'm constantly blabbing about Pinterest, the virtual bulletin board. Pinterest has made my craft links so much more organized, but it has also tripled the amount of stuff on my to-do list.

In order to motivate myself, I'm publicly announcing a few of the pins that I'd like to make this week. Hold me to it, readers. I'm a slacker.

Summer Boatneck Top 
Sew, Mama, Sew already started another round of sewing patterns, and I still have my eye on this one from last summer! (Told ya... I'm a slacker.) So I'd like to get this going before I start pinning all of this summer's how-tos.

Baby Janes 
Debbie Stoller, creator of all things crafty and awesome, shared this pattern over on Red Heart. I want to make a pink pair for my niece.

Anthropologie Knock-Off Flowers
Since I keep killing my real plants, I could use one of these Anthropologie knock-off blooms to fulfill my flower needs. One of these little babies could also make my work desk a little happier.

There. It's public. Now I have to do it. If you're a craft slacker, leave a comment below and let's share our misery together.


  1. Those knock-off blooms are awesome! And I wouldn't have to worry about my cats eating them and getting poisoned (and costing me $2k in vet bills again, stupid lillies)

  2. I know. And they're really cheap to make. Q-tips? Please! I can probably find enough of those behind my toilet to make half a flower.

  3. Love the boatneck top. I might have to try that out too, looks easy enough. What fabric do you have in mind to use?

  4. Erin, my great aunt gave me a lot of cotton fabric, so I will probably pull from that stash. If it turns out well, maybe I'll try another one in something with a little more flow. Let me know if you make one!

  5. Love the boatneck top, too, and also the cute little booties.

  6. ooh! i've always wanted to make a boatneck top. i already have my husband's B&W striped tee stashed away to reconstruct. now i just need the motivation - you. So you better make yours, or i won't get started. :p

  7. i can't get enough pinning. pinterest intervention? i may need one.

  8. Oh how I love thee Pinterest! I agree with you--although it's keeping me extra organized, I've now added triple the projects to my plate! :)
