Wednesday Pinsday: Sew

Oh my, is it Wednesday again already?  I've been bad about posting this week.  I've been too busy organizing and playing with my craft supplies, but not actually finishing anything!  Okay, maybe I've finished a card or two, but I've been lazy about taking pictures, editing, and posting.

This week I've got sewing on the brain.  I haven't gotten my sewing machine out since we moved, but it shall come out soon, because I'm planning on sewing something for my mother-in-law's upcoming birthday.  I already had an idea of what I was going to make, so I perused Pinterest to find tutorials and color inspiration.  Thanks to Pinterest, I now have even more ideas, so I have to decide what I'm actually going to make!

Here are some fun ideas that I pinned on my "Sew" board this week:

Cell phone (or camera) case made from a necktie.  I love projects that allow you to use items you might already have around the house.  And if you made your own, it doesn't seem like there would be a lot of difficult cutting involved -- I love that!

This one technically did not go on my "sew" board, but because I was looking for cell phone/camera/kindle cases, I found this and thought it was super cute.  Maybe I could crochet something like this, or you could use an old sweater.  The sleeve of a sweater might be just the right width for a Kindle!

LOVE this infinity scarf.  It's made from a t-shirt dyed with Rit dye... brilliant!  I love that you could make it any color you want, but I absolutely love the color shown.

I've been looking for ideas for pillows to make for my bed.  This one with the ties is so cute, but simple.  Just my style.  I plan to use a combination gray and teal, with just a splash of yellow for my pillows/bedding.

What have you been pinning this week?
