Being Silly

21 May

I am in a silly mood today, so thought I would find some silly things to make.

When you look up silly you get silly putty. ¬†Here is a recipe to make your own by That’s Country Living.tcl-homemade-silly-putty-2Then make a silly magnet face picture following the instructions at I Heart Nap Time.sillyfaces5_thumb
I like these monster head pillows from Ruffles and Stuff. (think soft potato head)

Here are a couple of fun craft  ideas for around the house.

This is a great Anthropologie knock-off from View from the Frig. AnthroGoldPencilHolder1

I love  great big grommets and those wonderful crafters who come up with great ideas on how to use them.  This one is from Make It Love It.

Summer ID

13 May

It’s getting that time of year where we spend more time outdoors. ¬†I am a nag about making sure you have some kind of ID on you when you leave home. ¬†Things happen and it never hurts to be prepared. ¬†So here are a couple of ideas:

Love this fabric basket for the bike from Noodlehead.bikebuckettutorial

Here is a tutorial for a cute little wristlet made from a necktie at Lit Geek Studio. DSCN0746

There are several things I like about this wristlet from Wear the Canvas.  It is super cute, easy to make and closed with a zipper.  Zippers make me feel more secure than Velcro or a simple button. I would probably sew the wrist strap into the seam.kiwi8 A

And if you want to travel light add a pet tag to your shoelace or key chain.  Most pet stores have a machine where you can make a tags fast, easy and cheap.pettag

So have a fun and safe summer.

Summer Dress

12 May

During the summer I would rather wear a summer dress than shorts.  I find it more attractive on this body that is far from perfect and they are comfortable.  Here is a cute dress from Elle Apparel.  Very easy to sew, great if you have a serger.  And as you make the pattern from a garment you all ready wear it should fit really well.  Off to the sewing room I go.elle

Dresden Quilt Block

9 May

Bee In My Bonnet has some great quilt patterns. ¬†She has a tutorial for her 12″ Dresden block. ¬†I love the colors and fabrics she chose for her block. It would be fun to do a couple for a wall hanging in my kitchen. ¬†What do you think?dresden
