making big paper flowers
For my birthday two summers ago, I got a lovely little gift card to Anthropologie, and treated myself to two hair clips that looked like these: They were a bit pricey, as Anthro stuff tends to be-- $15 apiece, and after months of wearing them and pondering them and KNOWING I could make them myself somehow, I finally took some time to actually dissect the flower (not LITERALLY, but close!
I added to my wardrobe again. This project is actually a no-sew one that I whipped up before Martin was even awake on Saturday morning. It's super easy. Yep - they're just some simple fabric flowers on my jackets. Summer evenings get chilly around here (and did I mention we're still getting snow?
One curbside find + an idea + three days of stitching = my favourite craft project ever. There is something so satisfying about finding a discarded object, giving it some special attention and turning it into something covetable. Apart from my time, this project cost me nothing at all.
usually i don't mind doing laundry...but i hate having to trek around with all my stuff only to realize that i forgot quarters. and i'm the only one with a key to the laundry area which means if i'm not home my boyfriend can't do laundry, not that he would anyway lol.
I've had these large faux pearls sitting in my stash for pretty much EVER so I thought I would finally use them for something. I love how they're graduated in size, and I adore the midnight blue color. They match perfectly with the antiqued brass chain I had laying around here as well.
I've been working on a few projects here and there, to get ready for Big Bear's grandmother's 80th birthday party. I've been put in charge of the party and I want it to be super special considering it's a big mildstone birthday.
I feel like I'm a broken record lately because all I talk about is packing. Sorry friends, packing and cleaning has taken over every empty space in my brain.
Thursday, May 17, 2012 In case you haven't noticed yet, I like to craft! While I try to do my own original ideas most of the time, there is occasionally a project that is so cute, so awesome that I simply cannot resist! That's the case with my new voodoo doll pincushion.
I actually took a picture of the giant pile of sweatpants that I usually sleep in, but it's too embarrassing to share. Point is, I'm trying to cute up the whole sleep situation with some quick sewing projects. It also makes lounging around the house feel sort of special and less,...
A long time ago Nikki gave me one of those books full of interior design fabric samples that had been given to her by her mother, that had been given to her mother by some lady? I promised Nikki in exchange I would make a wallet for her out of some of the samples.
Paper flowers are a fun little craft to decorate gifts, table tops, wedding favors, or make a whole bouquet. You can also string them up to make a garland.
This is how I tried to retain the spring this summer !! I found an old tyre tube in my backyard and converted it into a flowery lamp using series lights and paper roses. These night blossoms make the living area very pleasant and relaxing.
It's been a while since I posted a needle felting project, so I thought I would treat you to something a little bit special. I really love the idea of children playing with toys made from natural materials like wool, it's really important developmentally to give them a rich sensory experience that plastic toys just don't offer.
Yeah, I know. No big whoop. However .... And once you have that you can form it into this ... Clothespin Fruit Bowl Or you can spiral it and use it like this ... A Tabletop Sculpture Or stack the bowl up a bit and have ...
Remember back in July when we made something fun for Thread the Needle Day? Well, today is Tooth Fairy Day, and I knew it deserved a project! Lately, I've been lucky enough to get to know the Tooth Fairy and learn her tricks...her job is not easy!
The ladies in my Relief Society wanted to make planted herb pots. I was charged with the task of putting them together. Here is what I came up with. Back in December I saw this post from Positively Splendid about using soda pop cans to make metal tags.
Ahh bling, the frivolous accessories that transform a plain outfit into a vision of loveliness...or more likely remain in a tangled mess in an old shoebox. Jewellery needs good storage and practical ways of taking it with you when you're packing for holidays. So here's an oldie but goodie, the jewellery pouch.
o make cement letters: 1. With your gloves on, mix cement in a disposable cup according to package instructions. You will use about 3 1/2-4 cups total. I found it easiest to mix 2 cups at a time to avoid premature setting. 2. Carefully spoon cement into alphabet molds, one at a time.
Long time readers of our blog may remember one of our earlier tutorials, to make a Scrappy Loyalty Card Wallet (originally blogged here). I have had my loyalty card wallet in use since 2009 and it is now showing signs of wear so it was time for an update.

Do you remember my 'Today's color inspiration' with the teapot? I loved that quote: 'Hello... Is it tea you're looking for?'. So I decided to make my own teapot with the same quote. I found a great teapot for this project at the thrift store but they are in 'normal' stores not that expensive too.
Have you ever made play dough and it just fell apart?? Well... not this time. This recipe will make play dough that is seriously the closest thing to store-bought you'll ever make. No falling apart or drying out (as long as stored in a sealed container). It will last up to 6 months.
I like it!

I was inspired by an issue of Homes and Antiques (a UK magazine) to create my own framed, button artwork. The magazine suggested that button lovers discover the work of Vicky Cockell... Cockell will make you one of those works for a mere $500. Or...
The most common type of sewn bookbinding that I often default to, falls into the category of longstitch binding. It's really a general categorization for many different methods of sewn binding. People have invented their own patterns and techniques and have probably called it something else as well.
