Jeep Sewing Projects

We recently bought a jeep and have been four wheeling every weekend this month. I want to buy accessories for it, but I’m being thrifty as usual and making my own. It sure helps out for making the payment too!

Handle Bar Bag

This turned out to look a little frumpier than I wanted it to. Next time I’ll have to use some heavy backing. I do love that I have all of my stuff close and convenient. There’s always extra space for snacks and for my camera too.

Tool Roll

This is an adult version of a crayon roll! The tools are a little bit odd shaped, so they don’t roll as well as a crayon roll but it is a great way to save space and keep your tools safe and organized. It’s also convenient to have all of your tools in one spot and can be easily carried to wherever you need them.

Fire Extinguisher Holder

Did you know it cost over $20 for one of these? I made it for much less! I finally finished a great easy-to-follow tutorial for how to make your own. Click here to see the full Roll Bar Fire Extinguisher Holder Tutorial.

Blanket

This wasn’t the most important thing I wanted to make but it is always great to have a spare blanket and to use a ton of extra fabric. It’s now my son and my dog’s favorite blanket to fight over. I love the patriotic color theme, it’s like a taste of 4th of July every day!

Decorated T-Shirt Crafts

Remember this skirt? I failed to mention that I burnt the iron-ons when I put them on it last time, so they fell off after the first wash (and the pictures!). Recently I added a piece of another t-shirt I had but didn’t like to wear as a top. I’m all set for any future patriotic holidays now. Or maybe a homecoming in the near future?

For the shorts I made here I decided to paint a little mustache on them. I had to cut out a few stencils until I got one that I liked. I taped it on and dabbed on the fabric paint and let them dry.

I think my sister will love these, she came up with the idea, but she doesn’t get them until her birthday!

The dress that I made a different sister was dressed up with this flower pin. The tutorial and better pictures are here.

Here’s some of the projects that we did last year. Happy 4th of July everyone!

4th of July- Ideas for Now or for Next Year

I had my younger siblings over the day before the 4th of July and was very mean and forced everyone to make a craft to put as a centerpiece for our 4th of July table. They all wanted to use my favorite medium and use the acrylic paints. I had a wooden serving tray, a metal bucket, and cardboard sheets in my craft room closet. This is what they created.
For my project, I had some felt and different ribbons and cords lying around and a big plastic jar that used to hold pretzels. This would be cute in different colors for other times of the year. I hot glued the different mix of ribbons to the felt and then hot glued the felt to the jar. Instead of patriotic red and white stripes it looked more like a candy-cane, so I decided not to use permanent glue on the blue ribbon, so that I can use the red and white stripes and a green ribbon for Christmas. Then i arranged some fake white roses in the newly-made vase. I also painted some extra place mats with the cardboard I had found laying around. They were quick and easy, I had a star-shaped stencil already made from another painting project and the rest was just quickly hand painted. It’s a cute way to protect your table on a holiday!
