Verano DIY Bolsa hecha de algodón Bandanas

I used 4 of them, fusible interfacing, a few sequins, bugle beads, seed beads and some 50 cent thrift shop purse handles to make two fun summer tote bags for my too cutie great nieces in Missouri. (Hey Kadence and Bella Rose!) There are several steps to make a summer tote like these, but it's very simple to do. Here's how I did it: Choose two cotton bandanas to make a summer tote. Trim interfacing close to outer sewn edge taking care not to cut the bandana. Bring together two opposing corners to the center and press along edges with iron set on medium heat. Next fold the previously ironed bandana in half and press sides and center well, ensuring crease is visible. Hand sew beads around each small paisley enclosed within the double lines and using the ironed crease lines as a guide. Press all edges flat. Unfold so the previously pressed center fold line is visible. Noodlehead: celebrar el tutorial niño: los niños cartera básica.

Make Your Own Tags &

To mark the occasion, we’re taking our two teenagers and getting away from these grey clouds to spend a few days in sunny Las Vegas. If you don’t hear from me until Friday, that’s why. If you never hear from me again, I won big. I wouldn’t worry if I were you. Lately, I’ve had a couple of people notice the tags I use in my projects and ask me where I got them. For some reason, it didn’t occur to me to put tags on my products when I started selling on Etsy. First, you’ll need to use your favorite program to create a layout. Next, you’ll need to cut a piece of freezer paper to 8 1/2 by 11”. Cut a piece of cotton fabric a bit larger than your paper. Cut the fabric even with the paper using sharp scissors or a rotary cutter. Feed into your printer so it will print on the fabric side. I sometimes store my labels this way, and I find they unravel less if I leave the paper on until I’m ready to sew them.

Tutorial: Una forma súper sencilla para cubrir un cuaderno - StumbleUpon

Last August, our local Fred Meyer had them on sale for 25 cents apiece for back-to-school, and K and I laid in a stock to get us well into our old age. I've been noodling with ways to make them look prettier. There are tons of tutorials on the web for mixed-media treatments, or removable patchwork covers. But I wanted something a little more simple and durable - after all, my notebooks take abuse. I don't know why it took me so long to arrive at this dead-simple idea, but here you go. So first, you'll need a piece of fabric that's roughly 1" larger on all sides than your opened-flat composition book. This project works best with a woven cotton that's a little on the thicker side and tightly woven.

Next, get a sheet of fusible web that's slightly smaller on all sides than the fabric. Place the fabric on an ironing board wrong side up. Your iron should be on high heat with no steam (No steam is really important here.) ...And it's done! Little Letter Needle Book Tutorial - StumbleUpon. Pleated tote (beach bag) tutorial.

Stepping Thru Crazy: Mens Button-Up Refashion... into Ladies Tank! - StumbleUpon. A few years ago, when the hubby and I lived in Florida (this was pre-kids, so make that 5-ish years...)

Stepping Thru Crazy: Mens Button-Up Refashion... into Ladies Tank! - StumbleUpon

I bought him a button-up shirt for his work. The deal was that he had to wear blue or white button-ups, so I thought, "Why not both at the same time? " And I got him this:Apparently when he wore it to work, his boss told him he looked like a picnic basket, aaand the shirt was retired to the closet. Well, I don't care if I look like a picnic basket, so I decided to turn it into a tank top for myself!

It was actually really easy to do... let me try once again to tell you how I used a sewing machine... eh.... First things first, I chopped the sleeves off. Then I slipped the shirt on and pinned in the sides so that it fit. I took off the shirt, flipped it inside out and sewed up the sides where my pins were, trimmed off the excess, flipped it rightside out again, and tried it on to make sure it fit. Then I pinned the armholes the way I wanted them... carefully......and sewed them.
