Appliquéd Tie Onesie

Let's face it... the onesie tie tutorial has been around the block or two, but I still can't get enough of them! They are beyond adorable and make for an awesome (and inexpensive) baby-shower gift! I love the fact that you can customize them for each person you are giving them to. I downloaded the FREE pattern on Crap I've Made, and followed her detailed step-by-step tutorial!  I have quite a few friends who graduated from the University of Florida. Each of them are die-hard fans, … [Read more...]

Pacifier Clip

Back in January I saw this blog post from Running with Scissors about making your own pacifier clip. Since I have a million friends (ok maybe I'm exaggerating on the number) that all seem to be having babies I figured this would be a perfect project to try and hopefully give as gifts! Right after my most recent cousin was born I decided I would give this project a try.

4th of July Word Cloud {How to make}

I love the varieties of subway art that all the crafters in the world make; however, lately I've had very little time to make anything.

A lot of teachers use this program to make classroom decor or even assign projects to students. You can either type in words to create your word cloud or type in a URL. I … [Read more...]

Simple {Reversible} Tote Bag

*This is the only photo I have and it was taken on a camera phone. One of my first sewing projects I attempted after receiving my sewing machine in 2009 was the simple (reversible) tote bag. I found a plethora of awesome tutorials from Skip to My Lou, and instantly fell in love with the reversible tote bag. It looked easy and I figured it would be a great first project. This one hour project took me at least a good 3 hours. I think I had to seam rip a good three times, and at one point I … [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...]
