Welcome everyone to "The Prim Patch"

I have always loved the look of Prim. The last several years I've tried whatever Prim crafting projects I could find. I love workin' with wood, sewing, stitchery, really any crafts...I could work on projects all day everyday!! (If life were that easy...LOL)
I'm hoping to be able to share anything and everything Prim I can do/find with everyone.
Be sure to follow my blog to see what we can create together.

I have a few things on my blog for Sale...you can check them out here.

Silicone bulbs…

I finally decided to try my hand at makin’ my own silicone bulbs yesterday. My first batch are jus’ plain clear silicone. I’m gonna make the colored, grubby ones next time.

Here’s the tut I used from Char…click HERE if you’d like to try it too. Thanks so much Char!!!

Here’s how I had them hanging to dry…it does take awhile for them to dry all the way.



Here’s a close up of one of the bulbs.


I think they turned out pretty good for my first time. I can’t wait to make the Grubby lookin’ ones like Char made.

Messin’ with candles…

Here’s jus’ a few candles I’ve been I’ve been makin’. I jus’ wanted to see if I could make some smaller “Nubbie” candles.

I started out with these long red tapered candles. I cut them apart to give me a few different sizes….being careful to not cut the wick. I then dipped them a few times in my wax…and rolled them in some cinnamon. Thanks to the help of my Dear Prim friend Donna.


I needed to replace the candles in my candle holder my sis got for me awhile back. I’m not real thrilled with the red candles that came with it.

Here’s the before…


And here’s the after…


I like the smaller “Nubbie” candles much better.

I need to hit GW to get more candles and keep tryin’ to perfect them...I’m still lookin’ to try to make them even smaller…like the actually “Nubbie'” candles you can buy. Over all, for my first time…I was pretty happy with the way they turned out.

More Stitcheries....

Morning everyone!!
I jus' wanted to share a few more of my stitcheries that I've made....Plus, some that I'm workin' on.
Here's the lil sheep one I posted last time....it's finally finished.

Here's jus' a small one I made awhile back...jus' finished it yesterday. Kinda plain...but sometimes I like jus' having something "Simple".

Here's what I'm workin' on...actually, I was able to finish this last night.
I made 2 of these....they will go on my end tables in my family room.

Here's some of my up coming stitcheries.
The one on the top will be framed...and the 2 on the bottom will be made into tags.

As you can see...I'm into stitchery right now....I love how they turn out...and esp. love the ones made into tags....they are so nice to hang really anywhere in your home.
