Ok, just kidding. quit banging on your desk. Yes, you! Here’s a simple tutorial for a cute Barbie dress! Click below for more! You’ll need: fabric: 1 piece 6 ” by 2.5″ for the bodice, and 1 piece 5″ by 12″ for the skirt ribbon: 2 pieces-2.5″ long for straps if you want them sew-on velcro: 4 inches long, and a little over 1/4″ wide (i cut 3/4 inch velcro in half) sewing stuff: thread, iron, scissors, sewing machine….yada yada First, serge or zig zag all edges of your fabric… and with your iron press the two short sides, and one long side of each fabric piece in 1/4 inch. sew about 1/8 inch seam around those three sides. take your bodice piece, and wrap it around your Barbie® (thanks for modeling for us, Cinderella!)

Nap Time Crafters: Card Table Playhouse

I made a card table playhouse for little miss and it’s our new favorite toy! I’ve been wanting to make one of these for over a year now and I finally got around to it in time for her 2nd birthday. I didn’t do a tutorial, but I do have some tips for you:) First let’s take a tour… The front door complete with a mailbox I used ribbon ties on either side of the door so it can be held open And of course the mailbox opens up and comes with some letters A very popular feature:) Around back is a home for fido (little miss is a big time dog lover) with a doggie door that goes through to the inside (I saw this idea over at Homemade by Jill) On one wall I made a little window (essential or the playhouse would be a bit dark inside) and beneath it is a flower box with watering can.

And around the other side is an apple tree. My 1st attempt at making a doll- definitely could use some practice:) How to make a toy with a small piece of paper. 3d video showing how to fold an origami peace crane.

Homemade kaleidoscope. By Kate on October 8, 2010 Sorry it’s been a little while in between posts….I’ve got a number of projects on the go and it’s been a bit of a struggle to actually get one finished!

Homemade kaleidoscope

Anyway check out this ‘kitchen roll’ kaleidoscope. It works surprisingly well and can be made from household scraps. It’s one of those projects that also appeals to different age groups. My two and three year old love playing with it but it would make a great rainy day project for an older kid. How to You will need ♥ A kitchen roll ♥ Mirror card (or foil glued onto card) ♥ Small colourful transparent objects (e.g. beads, sweet wrappers, lego ‘lights’) ♥ Three transparent plastic discs ♥ Scissors ♥ Gluestick ♥ Sticky tape ♥ Greaseproof paper disc (optional) ♥ Black paper disc (optional) ♥ Paper to decorate (optional) Please note: All measurements given in this tutorial are based on you using a standard kitchen roll tube (23cm long with a diameter of approx 5.3 cm). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

A few weeks ago I saw this idea for water blobs floating around online and decided to try it ourselves the next time we were having friends over to play.

Water Blob: Tutorial

Can I just say that this “water blob” was amazing amounts of fun. I layed on it, the kids jumped on it, slid across it and spent the entire day doing all sorts of crazy acrobatics. We loved it so much that I almost can’t wait to do another one. And the next one will have glitter in it… tons of glitter. So what is a “water blob” and how do you make one? How do you make one? Fold the plastic sheeting in half and tape the three open sides with duct tape (it helps to have assistance) but leave open a small hole for the water hose. Put the water hose in it and let it fill. It is that simple and that fun. It did get a few small leaks on the edges throughout the day but we simply fixed them by applying more tape to the leaky spot. So go conquer the blob! Edited to Add: You MUST use heavy plastic sheeting. Bobbie.
