Stick Weaving Tutorial – a fun and useful medieval craft

| WeavingCraft Tutorial, Crafts, Weaving

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

This stick weaving tutorial will show you how to make a pouch as your first project. Stick weaving makes thin strips of woven fabric. These thin strips can then be used as is, or even joined side by side to make them wider. The sticks for stick weaving can be of various thicknesses, most often about ¼ to ½ inch. One end of the stick is tapered to a dull point. The other end has a hole through it. Stick weaving is done over 2 or more sticks usually held in the hand. The result is a strip of woven fabric.

My new mini apothecary chest is so awesome and something I’ve been wanting forever! I love all the various size drawers and the fun colors. I’ve always wanted a buffet style apothecary chest, but those are super expensive. This little guy is so useful and fun and won’t break the bank. You can use more or less colors when you paint it, and choose colors that fit your style if mine aren’t so “you”. However, my version is VERY “me”!

July 2020 Crafty Time with Jessie featured felt crafts, loom knitting, wood painting, and lots of fun with various Plaid products.

Upcycled Snow Folx can be made from crafty items you most likely already have in your stash. See what you have and then get creative! Maybe you don’t have as many buttons for hats, but you have pipe cleaners or little ribbon flowers. You could even use some clay to make hats, or yarn to make scarves. Just poke through your stash and have fun!

It’s Tangi tutorial time! Have you found Tangi yet? It’s Google’s new short form video platform geared to use creative types. How cool is that? I know that my video tutorials tend to get long because I give you all the info I think may help, so on Tangi I share the just-get-to-it versions of my tutorials. I even learned how to make stop-motion videos for Tangi!

Week 14 of Crafty Time with Jessie demonstrated how the only thing constant is change. Things got a little heavy on Wednesday, but sometimes that’s part of life and change and growing. On a lighter note, there was cool embroidery and new crochet and general fiber fun!

“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.” — Dr Martin Luther King Jr

Doing the Right Thing - standing against racism by Jessie At Home - Pin 1

Starting several weeks ago various members of the Joy Creators/Stitch Ambassadors for Spinrite/Yarnspirations/Red Heart started sending emails to Spinrite asking them to take a stand against racism and make and implement an actionable plan to ensure inclusion and anti-racism in their company and in those they choose to represent them. These emails fell on deaf ears.

Week 13 Crafty Time with Jessie At Home – It’s OK to not be OK

| Crafts, Video

Week 13 of Crafty Time with Jessie has been a bit of a rough week. I’ve had to remind myself several times that it’s OK to not be OK. Everything will be fine, but sometimes you just have to deal with a cruddy week. Thankfully I have awesome friends who always make things better. And of course, having 12 year olds who still cuddle on the couch with me helps a whole lot as well! Let’s not forget the wonderful stress-relieving powers of crafting. And of course, my lives with all of you have been very  therapeutic as well. Thank you!

Week 12 Crafty Time with Jessie At Home – Wall Hangings and learning through failure

| Crafts, Video

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Week 12 of Crafty Time with Jessie has been off-the-wall! OK, I may be feeling a bit punny, but we did make a pretty wall hanging. On Thursday and Friday I also inadvertently demonstrated how sometimes the road to success travels through failure first, and how sometimes I think I know more than I do. You can’t be afraid to make mistakes, just go with it and learn from them!

This has been an intense and important week for the world, and especially the USA. I have continued to hold my daily live videos because of the number of people who have told me it helps them feel less alone. However, I’ve held back a lot of my other posts as I’m taking time to listen, to learn, to grow, and to try to help in this fight against racism and oppression. I hope you will join me in standing with our black brothers and sisters and others along with me. Those of you who we are standing with, you are seen, you are heard, you are loved.

String Art Greeting Cards – and other Cricut Joy awesomeness!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I opened my Cricut Joy and all the goodies that came with it, I was inspired the most by the insert card sets. I wanted to make cool “Jessie” style greeting cards, and string art greeting cards eventually come into my head. Then I also remembered my straw holder I keep saying needs some love. And the little Joy itself, it wanted some personalization too! I see miles of crafting in my future.
