Re-use, Re-cycle & Re-project

December 8th, 2009

December 8th… how did that happen? So here’s the thing. I was going to do a tutorial for a fun little holiday project. I even got the PDF template made. No, seriously. And then all of a sudden… it’s December 8th.

So as if by design and being organized… I’m totally prepared now for Christmas 2010 (mmm hmm). So in the spirit of re-gifting… I’m re-projecting.  Re-project Runway.  Something fun to put under your Christmas tree, Hanukkah bush or Festivas pole. Or in my case - since Kohl’s shipped me the wrong tree… something for under my old skinny tree (aka MaryKate-mas tree).

Re-project from 2008 - Pennie Pockets:

I’ll do just about anything to create an opportunity for some ding-dong-ditchin’… and that’s how the Pennie Pockets came to be.   A crime craft of opportunity. Two versions/two ways to make the Pennie Pockets - a PDF on my blog, or a tutorial version at the Moda Bake Shop using Layer Cakes. You should see what my pal Thimbleanna made!

Re-project from 2007 - Jingle Jolly Table Runner:
I’m a charms nut. Love, love, love charms… so I got my jollies making this little table runner.  The little Jingle Jolly finishes at 16” x 40”.  The PDF pattern and the Post of Christmas Past can be found here.

I hope you enjoy (or re-enjoy). Happy Re-holidays!

    Thanks you for re-projecting! I forgot I made the Jolly Jingle table runner last year and now I need to search for it and get it out! Love your blog…you silly gal…and your skinny tree. :)

    Well… re-used, re-cycled or re-projected… it’s all new to me since I just found your site several weeks ago! I totally get “what the… heck”, December 8 already? Why oh why didn’t I start doing Christmasy things in July like I always say I will?! Anyway… the Pennie Pockets are adorable. They would look great on a gift stuffed with goodies instead of a bow. Thanks.

    These project of yours, ALL of your projects, are so beautiful! You are so talented at this. I can’t imagine a tree resembling those twins. Must be gaunt! I’m way behind too. I’m shooting for 2010 as well.

    I love the table runner-if I wasnt so behind I’d make one!!!!!!!!!! I just finished two days’ hard labor in Santa’s Sweatshop-my hands are killing me!

    Luv those pennie pockies! Monica, I put up a crafty blog yesterday (Dec. 8), u might be proud of me. Take a look.
    Your house looks warm, cozy, and inviting. We had a massive snow fall on Mt. Diablo yesterday, all the way down to the foothills, and it was all still there at noon. Brrr

    You make me want to quilt! My Sis quilts a lot, and I always figured, why should I do it when she could do it for me? But one of these days I’m going to get serious, grow up, and be a real quilter lol. I have a quilt top I embroidered when I was pregnant with my 31 year old son lol. So, Monica, do you have any unfinished projects, 31 years old? Have a Merry Christmas, btw! Karen

  8. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    You’re hysterical! We need one of those anorexic Christmas trees at our house. Of course you know I LOVE your pennie pocket pattern and the table runner is on my too long to-do list. And what’s up for 2010 — inquiring minds want to know!!!

  9. The fabulous Shelley A. allegedly said:

    Merry Christmas!

  11. The fabulous Amanda allegedly said:

    I love re-projects!! In fact, I made 11 of the pennie pockets for my quilting friends and gave them as little gifties today. They loved them!!!

  12. The fabulous Amanda/Busy Little Quilter allegedly said:

    I just uploaded photos of my Christmas Pennie Pockets in the flickr group at Moda’s Bakeshop!

  13. The fabulous Maria allegedly said:

    I loved that runner pattern two years ago, and I still love it!!! I may need to make an Easter one, a 4th of July one, a birthday one…..you get the idea!

  14. The fabulous Sabine allegedly said:

    Hi Monica,
    I´ve been sick for a few days….therefore I haven´t read all the posts you´ve written the last days. Your craft-room looks so beautiful and the little “pyramid” is so German!!!
    Have a wonderful 3.Advent!!
    Liebe Grüsse

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
