Clipboard Before & After

One of my many philosophies is that you are at work the same amount of time you are at home, so your office/cubicle should be a warm and welcoming place. Staying true to this philosophy, I added a little personality to some clipboards I bought at Wal Mart.



I bought clipboards for $7.50, used 12″x12″ scrapbook paper that I already had, and put them together with some rubber cement. This is a quick and easy way to add brightness to your office or cubicle.

*And, in classic Tori fashion, I used the same color scheme for my Dry-Erase Calendar and clipboards. Of course, future projects for my cubicle will match as well 🙂

Zippered Pouch

I was fortunate enough to be able to go through training on a few Baby Lock machines last week, and through out the process, I got to make an adorable zippered pouch.

We started with 2 pieces of printed cotton fabric and a piece of batting. After we made our quilt sandwich with a little quilt basting spray, we stitched a simple diamond pattern and embroidered our names with the Ellisimo Gold sewing and embroidery machine.

Now for the fun part…


Our pouches were ready to be put together and zipped up. To insert the zipper, we actually used the Evolution serger. Typically, zippers and I are not friends, but this method was WAY easy. We then serged the sides, and VOILA! We had ourselves a cute zippered pouch.
