Being Greedy

T-shirt rug found through Pinterest
Now that fall is approaching, I'm starting to get in the mind set of preparing for Christmas this year.  Yes, you read that right, here we are at the end of August and I'm already talking about Christmas!  Such an improvement from last year when every holiday seemed sneak up on me.  But this year I have a different twist on things.  Right now I'm being a bit greedy and working on some projects for our house instead of making new products to sell. 

I've been fighting the urge to sew and knit for myself for a while and I finally broke down and said, nope right now is going to be me time. There are several sewing projects I would like to do for the family and for myself.  I still plan to chronicle them here, but they just won't be available for sale unless someone makes a custom request.  In the mean time I may sneak a quick project in here or there, but now that we've been in our new house for about a year, there are a few things that I really want to tackle.  One of them being this rug.  I'm debating making it with t-shirts or old sheets.  Feel free to check out this crochet patterns over at Coffee and Vanilla one of my latest Pinterest finds.

Now that I'm taking some time to focus on my house, what are some projects that you've done for yourself or to improve your home of late?  Give me some ideas!


  1. Very cool rug. I think tshirts would be softer on the toes.

  2. I thought so too! There is another t-shirt rug, I'm thinking of doing as well. I'll have to write a post about that one too. Maybe people can vote on which one I should make.
