    I've had my grandson for the last couple of weeks so I've "been away".  He's headed home today and has some dirty clothes to take with him so we decided to do this little project together before he left. Sewing patterns: Upcycled Laundry/Vegetable/Grocery BAG What could have been a twenty minute project, if not for Noah's "help", turned into a good forty-five-er... but where's the fun in fast? We upcycled an old sweatshirt into a bag that he'll use for his dirty clothes.

    Copycat Felt Owl iPhone Cover tutorial I started by laying my phone on the felt to guesstimate how large my felt needed to be.  I left a little bit of excess on the edge and cut the felt long-ways so I would have a little flap at the top. Then I started cutting out pieces.  I started with the bottom wings, then added the rest of the pieces. Here it is all pieced together ready to be sewn. I used orange stitching around the

    _____________________________________ Sewing tote for Halloween: candy corn trick or treat bag You reach the front door and ring the bell. A woman dressed as a witch answers the door holding a giant plastic bowl in the shape of a cauldron. She reaches her hand tipped with fake long nails and spider decals on each one inside the pot. You nudge your little one and whisper "say trick-or-treat!" Silence. The witch looks at you with a smile, "that's okay," she mouths. "Open your

    I used DK cotton yarn and half treble stitches (UK). You must start with the violet and continue in reverse rainbow order. When my circle was complete I made a further round of single crochet in red. My circle had a finished diameter of about 5.5 inches. When you fold the circle in half it will look like a little crocheted rainbow: To turn this rainbow into a zipped coin purse you will need a small piece of lining fabric (8 inches

    Project Recycle  Guess what, I'm on a 'Recycling' streak these days. Actually, I don't like throwing out my things, I don't know why. I guess I get too attached to my belongings. I was gifted this little purse when I was 10. I just didn't have the heart to throw it away. I thought of turning this purse into a Bangle Clutch. So the other day when I snipped off the straps of this purse (and used them on another project, the one following

    Sewing tutorial: Oilcloth baskets Fabric sample books are great for small projects, and if you can find one with plastic-coated fabric, so much the better. This could be the quickest sewing project ever: oilcloth doesn't need hemming. The swatches from the book were already all the same size, with pinked edges. I cut out squares from each rectangle, more or less like this... ... and sewed up the seams and the corners like this: Done in about 15 minutes!
