Easy to Sew Reversible Dog Bandana

Easy to Sew Dog Bandana

We have had Lilly three weeks now and I am already sewing for her.  I promise this will stop because I do not intend to dress her in outfits.  It’s just not my thing.  But the neighbor dog has a bandana and it looks rather spiffy so I thought I would try one.  I found this pattern on the Pitter & Glink website. The bandana is super fast to make, well under 30 minutes and it takes minimal fabric.  It’s…

Patrice Bib

I’ve had this pattern in my “to sew” pile for years.  I think it is adorable but I just haven’t had a baby to sew for until now!  My neighbor had a baby a few weeks ago so I thought I would try this out.  I love how the bibs turned out and they are super fast to make. The pattern is from I think Sew.  I’ve tried a few of her other patterns and they are all great.  You…

How to Make Fabric Envelopes

I made these envelopes for Valentines but I think they would be great for any occasion.  You can put money in them, gift cards, candy or love notes!  The envelopes don’t require much fabric so they are economical and easy! Cut your fabric to the size of envelope that you would like.  You will need two pieces of fabric for each envelope.  Any size will work with the same directions.  For the red ones above I cut the fabric 8″…

How to Make Felt Play Food

Felt Play Food

Years ago when my daughter was younger she loved to play in her pretend kitchen and she needed some food.  She would draw and color her food on paper but it was quickly destroyed so I made her some felt food that would last longer.  She would give me requests for food as fast as I could cut them out and sew them.  Rose was so creative and arranged a stove on top of her dresser and used the top…

How to Make Play Food Tea Bags

I absolutely love a good tea party.  When my daughter was little she would get dressed up in her finest dress and set her little tea-table so pretty.  We would sit for tea and little snacks.  She is old enough now that she sets the real table and cooks very delicious meals that we enjoy!  I wish I had seen these little tea bags on Pinterest when Rose was little!  My friend has a little girl who is just about…

I love to make handmade gifts for the holidays!  I would make one for everyone in my life if I had the time.  This table runner is a quick and easy gift, it takes under 30 minutes to make!  My daughter has a few table runners that a friend made for her and she absolutely loves them.  She likes to use table runners for lots of meals, not just special occasions.  We use them on our kitchen island where we…

How To Make A Reversible Flannel Blanket

Flannel blankets are usually used for baby receiving blankets which is what I made this particular blanket for.  However, I don’t see any reason why they can’t be made for many other uses!  They make great gifts and are super easy to make! You can make some this season to donate to a local animal shelter so each animal has a snuggly blanket.  They are good for a lightweight car blanket, stroller blankets, picnic blankets, baby doll blankets.  The list…

How To Make Fabric Bunting

How To Make Fabric Bunting

First, let me say that there is no practical use for bunting.  Zero.  It’s only purpose is to be festive and is commonly used at parties, weddings, etc.  I first made mine for my VW bus and our campsite.  I was dead set on having the cutest damn campsite and I think I accomplished my goal!   The bunting is so cheerful and fun.  I incorporated some of my favorite fabrics.  I didn’t want to pack them away in between…

How To Make T-Shirt Wall Art

T-shirt Canvas

My kid’s are growing out of their favorite clothes like it’s their job.  My son loves these four t-shirts and didn’t really want to part with them.  I have made him a t-shirt quilt previously and I have one for Rose and Damon in the works.  These four shirts were cool enough for wall art versus a quilt though! My friend Kristen gave me this idea years ago and I’ve just been procrastinating in my usual way until I saw these…
