Last week I showed you one of the projects I’ve being working on. I wanted to make something really special for our wedding photographers, so as a Thank you present I made 2 little bears for their son and daughter. IMPORTANT: This project is not for beginners, and if you have never made stuffed animals and are not familiar with patterns, I would recommend you to start with a more simple project and attempt this teddy bear once you have the skills and patience to put together pattern pieces and are familiar with your sewing machine (if you are not fully hand-stitching it). I have added extra instruction and updated this post Feb 20th 2012. So hopefully now it will be easier for all of you to follow. Bear: Tutorial and Pattern

This cute costume is made of warm fleece and is great for wearing out on Halloween or just chillin' around the house. Good luck choosing which Pokemon you want to create your costume after! I got the idea for this after my good friend Max purchased a pair of Pikachu Pajamas. With a hefty price of 74 dollars (on that site), I figured I could do one better and make my own for a fraction of the price. 40 dollars of fleece later, me and my other friend Evan set out about making our own Charmander and Meowth costume. However, I didn't document the making of those costumes. "Snuggie" Character Costume
These pillows are easy and quick to make, a perfect end of summer project! The best thing about them is seeing other people's reactions to them.

Hello all, I'm Chelsea from Seablanket.com! I was so excited when Elsie asked me to create a DIY for Tricks & Treats, and I knew just what to make. I love dressing up on Halloween and really wanted to wear something fresh this year - something cute and unique. This Lady Bird Owl Costume is made entirely from items I had around the house, and by settling down with some popcorn and a funny movie i was able to make it in under one hour.
