Craft Goals for 2011

My google reader page runneth over with "Stared" items. It's so easy to say, "Oooh I'd like to make that and just click, "star". How many do I actually get to?

I decided to kill some time before Christmas (when I should have been cleaning or packing) going through those projects. Many no longer inspire me and I was able to delete them. Many more made this overly ambitious list.  Here are a few of the projects I hope to tackle in 2011.

Just for fun:
Hello Kitty Floral bouquet from Zakka Life.
Modern Garland by Sweet Sweet Life 
This is the year I make a Dia De Los Muertos shrine.
Patchwork string  and fabric twist ties
Jewelry Organizer
Cherry Blossom Branch
Now that I have a ruffler foot, maybe I'll make a petticoat.
Or maybe this skirt.
Love these twig pushpins!

Smaller Projects
One Word Canvas - By Joy's Hope

Sewing Machine Cover
Felt PB Knockoff Pillows - Someday Crafts
Copy Cat Scarf by Cluck Cluck Sew
I still love this Scrap Buster Fall Pillow. It was on my 2010 list too. 

Christmas & Gift Ideas
Silent Night Pillows-The Shabby Nest
KitchenAid Mixer Cover-by Heart of Mary
Magnet Gift Tags- Tatertots & Jello
Giant Craft Stick Snowflakes

Bigger Projects

A headboard for us.
Roadkill Rescue Headboard
I loved this Roadkill Rescue at the time, but I am not feeling it in our new apartment. I am searching craigslist and also considering some DIY options like:
DIY Fabric Covered Headboard
Scrap Wood Headboard
Simple Tufted Headboard

Slipcover a chair ala Shelly

Getting a pup! And, if you give a girl a puppy she will need to make it a  a dog bed! ( I have a curbside end table ready to got!  A coat!  And a leash!
 We hope to adopt a shelter dog this year. I'd love to get a Chiweenie. We'll see!

I'd like to make this bed for the guest room when my dad is here in January.

Auntie Projects
Pleated Baby Mary Janes
Baby Kimono Wrap- Sew Mama Sew 
Family Member Magnets or some variation of this theme.

Well, that is a pretty extensive list. Who knows what I will actually make. Do you have any particular craft ambitions for 2011?

Good luck to you on your ambitious list! I always have a mile long list of things I want to make too. And how exciting, a puppy this year!
