Small piece of felt
Small piece of light weight cardboard
I was getting a wedding day emergency kit ready today. I planned on purchasing a sewing kit but wanted to save money by DIY. I came up with this cute little sewing kit. I cut a piece of felt into a heart and cut two small slits vertically. I took a thin piece of cardboard and cut it into a small strip. I put a slit in it to hold the ends of the thread and wrapped it in a good size piece of thread. I slipped it into the slots on the felt heart and then stuck a needle in the heart. Finished!
i decided that Iay have been neglecting the outside of my house a little. My first step is to spruce up the front door. The project isn’t totally complete but a good start.
This redo didn’t cost me a dime. I had the knoll post out in the shed, an old cupboard made the address sign and the milk can was located somewhere else in my yard. A coat of black and some vinyl is all it took. Next step is some plantings and a coat of red paint on the door.
Ok so here are the photos. Tutorial to come…
M had to bring cookies for thanksgiving feast for preschool. Well 12 little cookies looked weak on a paper plate. A little scrap paper and hot glue!
I clothes pinned a sheet of good old contact paper to a piece of cardboard because this stuff rolls. Next I sprayed it with black chalkboard spray paint, two coats. Then I cut it decoratively and stuck it on.
We were home sick from preschool and got a big snow. Because my son was sick he couldn’t go out and build a snowman. We made this instead.
The hat and scarf is a sick and we used beads and buttons fro decorations. We drew a ruler on the side to measure how much snow we got.
This is any easy project, I sewed this one in 30min, pausing to take photos for this tutorial.
A 15in x 18in piece of flannel (for a newborn -3 month size, you may need a little more for larger sizes)
A little extra for the bow tie if you choose
A long sleeve onesie
13in of 1/4 elastic
Fold your fabric in half, making it 9in x 15in. Lay your onesie on top and cut out a skirt of fabric. Leave 1/4in on each side where the skirt will match up with the onesie.
Turn your skirt inside out and stitch up both sides.
Cut your onesie in half. Just under the armpits. Be sure to leave 1/4 in to sew the skirt and onesie together.
Slide your onesie inside the inside out skirt with the neck facing down. Pin and sew.
Turn the bottom edge of the skirt over making a casing. Pull your elastic through and close your casing.
Step 6: optional
Turn right side out and add a bow tie. This was for a little boy so I wanted it to look manly. You could add buttons or leave it plain too.
