Tool Tip Wednesday from Becca's Crazy Projects

On Saturday I broke my retractable holder for my snips. I slip the click onto the collar of my shirt so my scissors are always handy when I'm working with the long arm. This also ensures I don't leave them on the surface of the quilt. 
Thankfully, I had a back up clip in my desk. The scissors are Fiskars micro-tip. They are perfect for keeping next to your sewing machine or in your sewing bag. I'm pretty sure I have three pair: one in my hand sewing kit, one for my long arm, and a third ...

Happy Monday! Today starts my 'after surgery' videos. You will see my face change in real time now.  I'm taping this just 5 days after surgery and I'm quite surprised at how quickly it is settling down. The initial swelling and bruising were pretty awful. 

Later this week I'll do a post and video to update you on the process and what comes next for this. The one good thing is that it does not hurt. It had some dull aches, but it really has been fairly pain free considering what it looks like.

So let's ...

Hi Friend!!  Tomorrow, Tuesday, is my surgery early in the morning, so I am doing the video in the morning. 

On Tues evening I'll do an update at Facebook and the Youtube Community tab (are you using that? here it is) On my Wednesday article I'll write an update sometime during the day, not when it first releases as I'll most likely be asleep still.

More Masks from Becca's Crazy Projects

It seems the masks we've been wearing for almost a year are starting to show their age. I wanted some novelty prints so I convinced my husband to take me to the big-box fabric store to pick up some licensed prints. Maybe no one needs a mask with Pokémon or Avengers but I wanted some. I also pulled that cut cat print out of my collection. 
These are going to be so much fun!
As usual, I have cut out way to many of these. Oh, well, they are still good to share with friends. 

If you want to ...

Hexagon Junk from Becca's Crazy Projects

What to do with that junk mail printed on light cardstock? Make it into hexie papers for English Paper Piecing. 
This Fiskars extra large hexagon squeeze punch (Fiskars X-Large Squeeze Punch, Hexagon affiliate link) makes quick work of the light cardstock some junk mail is printed on. 
This means I can get a pretty good crop of hexagons out of that one piece of junk.
A little bit of time basting (I thread baste but I don't stitch through the hexagon paper) and you are ready to hand sew those little hexagons together. There are loads of videos on ...

Make Do and Mend from Becca's Crazy Projects

I bought a simple tote at one of the big box stores several years ago. One of the handles decided it was giving up. Of course, it did this while it was full of charity quilts. 
That failed strap became this tangled mess. That's okay, I have all the tools needed to fix this bag so it can get several more years of use carrying charity quilts around. 
Step one: measure the width of the strap. We will multiply this by four to determine how wide to cut our fabric strap. 
Step two: use this amazing tool from Bucklebee ...

Respect the Power Tool from Becca's Crazy Projects

I opened up my Juki last weekend. It was past time to do so. Here is a view of the fluff-bunnies hiding under the needle plate. 
Some time with the brush and I was ready to get stitching again. I also changed out the needle. 
I bought this sticker from Hunter Design Studio this past winter,. Treat your tools with the respect they deserve.
