Reusable Paper Towels

Pink terrycloth and Walking Dead fabric. Plus some Velcro and about 2 hours. For a yard of each it makes 8.

Lots of drawers. And cubbies.

A few peeks inside. I plan to put more of the painted paper in the back and bottom.

The outside is stained dark walnut then glued with crumpled tissue paper. I used several shades of blue and sealed with polyurethane.

Oak for the top and bottom.

Utah Arts Festival

I was asked to come up with something.  After arguing that I was not the right person for this event I gave in and started  a large apothecary case. It's all leftovers and warped wood I've been scrounging.  I'm trying really hard not to buy anything,  even hardware but we'll see for that part. I need some small drawer pulls and have found some good ideas online I can make with more scraps. It's been interesting so far and I want to make more even if this isn't finished.

I made a book!

The art store didn't have any paper by the ream, just the roll so it took a while to cut up the pages. This sucker took and entire 10 yard roll.
I got the book at a thrift store. I suck at case binding anyway and like exposed spines so it worked out.

5 out of 12 left. I am running out of black and my first test square is smaller than the other 11 so I redid it. This is my technique for making baby booties which I don't really do anymore. Just keep making them until you have 2 of the same size. Protip for free.

Stained Glass

7 colors and most of a day. The pattern needed more user testing, I redid most of the rows and went through all progress shots cause it wasn't making sense. I need to make 11 more.

I hit up a thrift store recently.

These books are the first thing I saw and since I didn't want to wander around with 11 books, weak arms, I bought them and left. That tactic works well in Costco too. No basket or cart and you leave without buying too much.
