{Mini Tutorial} Pillow Covers

Pillow covers are super easy to sew; yet some how I missed the memo on this! I just started sewing earlier this year, and my first project out the shoot was an elastic waistband pencil skirt! One would say it's just as easy as sewing pillow covers, but I never realized how simple the pillow covers really were until my neighbor showed me hers! That's when I got inspired to make my own. I have these really bright and vibrant out door pillows for my bench on our front porch, and in the winter … [Read more...]

{Mini Tutorial} Spider Dish Towel

I feel like it's long over due to feature a sewing project!!!Before we pulled our Halloween bins down form the attic I knew I wanted to make a dish towel. I had leftover fabric from my Halloween Table Runner I made along with the dangling spider beads and knew that those would pair well with my dish towel. I had just finished my dish towel when Mr. Woodsy finally decided to pull all of our bins down from the attic... that's when I discovered I purchased quite a few Halloween dish towels on … [Read more...]

{Tutorial} Creepy Spiders

I'm happy to report that I helped organize our first "craft at lunch" event at my office earlier this week. A handful of us are very crafty and craft all the time, so we decided to do an easy project during our lunch hour to clear our minds off work, and focus on a fun craft project. We adhered magnets on to the bottoms of our spiders, but you can honestly use anything like velcro or clips, etc... Our first crafting lunch was a huge success and we are already starting to plan for our … [Read more...]

After this "aha" moment I experience I was off to the thrift store to find me some plates! 4 plates for .69 cents and one plate for $1.99 and I was ready to start this project!

Halloween Table Runner

Last week I stumbled across a post "Adventures of ONE CrAzY LaDy" about making a reversible table runner. I've only owned one table runner in my life time and recently have been wanting to change it out. As soon as I saw this AWESOME tutorial I figured I'd give it a try {and of course} make a Halloween one! Below you'll find a few pictures of my new creepy table runner! I bought a 1/4 yard of fabric for both sides {knowing it was going on my hutch and not my actual table made my need for … [Read more...]

Tutorial: Monogramed Tile Coasters

I've seen this tutorial on mutltiple blogs--so many that I think it would take up my whole post to name all the tutorials. I figured I would host my own tutorial; to add to the hundreds of others out there! This is a pretty simple project, and makes for a great inexpensive gift (or simply to just spice up a boring coffee table)! The first time I made these was for a house warming gift (see the picture in our header). *I labeled this as $10 project giving the cost of all the supplies involved. … [Read more...]

{Tutorial} Customized Magazine Holders

On a recent trip to Ikea I saw a 5 pack of plain white magazine holders for only $2. I knew these would be perfect for my new and improved craft room {once it's done I'll post pictures}. I immediately started brainstorming about how I wanted to make these. I went to the craft store took my inspirational color pallet with me (see the file cabinet makeover), and started matching other papers and patterns to it. In the end I came up with four different patterns and colors that would work well with … [Read more...]
