Since turning 50 I must carry reading glass with me at all times and my poor eyeglass case is coming apart at the seams.  Better Homes and Gardens has pattern and instructions for a beautiful case made out of felt.

You know the show “Cheers” and the song that went with the show “where everyone knows your name”  that is how I feel about the craft store. I keep seeing these wonderful ideas and want to head to the store to get supplies.  Here is one from
Mod Podge.  Very cute and you could easily adapt it to fit your decor.

Bangel Bracelets

28 Nov

Alisaburke used a foam pencil cup she found in the kids section of the craft store to  make these wonderful bracelets.  They turned out so beautiful.  Or how about these made from old t-shirts from Make-Handmade! They would be a great teen project for Christmas gifts for friends.

Christmas Tree Softie

27 Nov

At LucyKate Crafts she has a tutorial for a Christmas tree softie.  I think this is very cute.  I like having something in my Christmas decorating that little hands can touch.  That way they can enjoy the holidays too and I don’t have to worry about all the breakables One hint I would add is if you want this to stand on a flat surface, after you fill most of the tree with stuffing  you can add about a cup of lentils or rice to the bottom of the tree to help it stand upright.
