Happy Hooligans. Free Knit Patterns. Bee In My Bonnet Row Along. Bee In My Bonnet. Once Upon a Time... ...in the creative land of Bee in my Bonnet... there was a "happy go lucky" princess who was trying to finish her dresden plate quilt that she started 4 months ago....

Once Upon a Time...

The princess thought she would pick up the pace by chain-stitching a quick method for the hour glass blocks she would use for the sashings of her dresden plate quilt.... So... she happily chain-stitched away in the early morning hours... But... (dunt dunt duuuhhh!) As she was stitching.... TRAGEDY struck. Time stood still... and so did the sewing machine.

It made a loud clunk and stopped working! "Oh nooooo! " Mack and Mabel: Organics. Mack and Mabel: Free Knitting Pattern for Rabbit Trousers. I've finally got this typed up as a free pattern for you !

Make Your Own Canvas Portrait! Song Lyric Wall Art / D.I.Y. Project. A couple weeks ago, I found a paint-by-number at an unbeatable price.

Song Lyric Wall Art / D.I.Y. Project

I can't pass these things up even though I already owned this particular design. I thought that I could maybe use it to make a fun D.I.Y., but my new rule is that all thrifts that I purchase with the intent of restyling need to get done right away. I have way too many half finished projects in my life. With that little bit of motivation I came up with a fun D.I.Y. to display some of my favorite song lyrcis in our newlywed home.

Enjoy.... Sofa Caddy. Sometimes, I think my TV remote has a mind of its own.

Sofa Caddy

Nine times out of ten, it's not where I want it when I sit down. I figure it must get up and leave when I'm not looking. Same thing goes for all my other controls ... never around when I need them (much like gas stations). This cool sofa caddy keeps everything right at my fingertips, The pockets all have the perfect expandable gusset: big enough to easily slide stuff in and out, but not so big that things topple out.

No-interfacing Storage Basket Tutorial

The measurements are in centimetres because that's the way I was brought up (sorry). A seam allowance of 1cm is included in these measurements. This basket's base is 15cm wide, but you could make any size using this slightly haphazard formula, where x is the width of the base and y is the height of the basket.

And 2 is cm and seam allowance. Pieces cut, sew right sides together along these seams:

Print Hula Hoop Rug Page. Pioneer Woman Home & Garden. A sweet friend of mine sent the girls and me a box of adorably adorable owl pillows this week.

Pioneer Woman Home & Garden

She doesn’t sell them, doesn’t have an Etsy shop…she just makes them. I think they might be the sweetest things I’ve ever seen, and I think they’ll be precious in the girls’ new room.

Sock Snowmen. This morning when I went out to take my daughter to school it was -12.

Sock Snowmen

That is too cold for my blood and despite the beautiful snow on the ground there is NO way you're getting me outside to make a snowman. So, instead, I'll opt for the inside version made out of socks. They're easier to make, last longer and dare I say it... they're cuter too. Want to make your own? Here's how: You'll need the following: 1- white sock. Step 1: cut the foot part off of your sock and discard. Step 2 & 3: Turn the tube part of your sock inside out and wrap a rubber band around the bottom. Step 4 & 5: Fill the sock with rice. Step 6: Taking the ankle socks, cut as shown above. Step 7, 8 & 9: First, take the sock without a toe and a heel and put it over your rice filled sock. Most favorited all-time.
