Recycled beach ball tote Recycled beach ball tote Even though most kids are heading back to school this month, I’m not ready to give up on summer. I’ve got a fun and easy project idea to share that will help keep that splashing, summer fun around a little bit longer. Inspiration struck at the lake last weekend, when I learned that the inflatable beach ball the kids had been playing with had a hole in it, and was losing air. Rather than toss it into the trash, Jo and I wondered if we could make something out of it.

Photos and Post By Emelie Sanders. When Momma takes us to the bookstore we each get a book; sometimes two–it depends on her mood, really. Usually, I take the longest time. I quickly scan the fiction area, then turn to the small nook of craft books. This recent visit I found How to Make Books: Fold, Cut & Stitch Your Way to a One-of-a-Kind Book by Esther K. Smith.
I was walking through Target a few weeks ago and noticed this little knit fabric headband that was not just braided together…….but woven. I decided they were charging way too much for something that could be made with t-shirt scraps. And that means free.

Needle and Spatula: Card Wallet Sewing Tutorial Needle and Spatula: Card Wallet Sewing Tutorial As promised, here is a sewing tutorial to make a cute card wallet with a button and elastic closure. These are great for when you want to just carry a few cards and maybe some cash with you instead of a big wallet, or you could use them to hold business cards. Also, in the spirit of the holidays, you could use these as gift card holders that then have a useful life afterwards! They are very quick and easy to make - I hope you enjoy the tutorial!

Little Love: Simple Shorts Up-Cycle Tutorial Little Love: Simple Shorts Up-Cycle Tutorial I dug these too big, too long, old shorts out of the goodwill donation pile today. I could't remember if they had originally been jeans that I cut and rolled, but I decided they could still be salvaged. Thanks to Pinterest inspirations, I made it home from Hobby Lobby with some lace in order to add a little something-somthing to these unwanted, almost rejected shorts.
Edit: more pics are in this post. Remember the Anthropologie Curtain Call top that I posted about? Well I finally got around to hand-sewing it, and I think it was worth it. Anthropologie Knock-Off: Curtain Call Top Tutorial

Okay, so back in MAY, I was asked to write a tutorial for my doily lanterns – it was supposed to be published in a bridal magazine’s online tutorial section. Awesome right? So I took pictures and wrote the tutorial and figured I’d direct you all to it, but um . . . I don’t think they ever did anything with it. Doily Lantern Tutorial | My Hands Made It
