Ideas for the girls!
As soon as I saw this idea for a Felt Mr. Potato Head on Make It and Love It , I loved it and knew it would be perfect for my kids and I would have to make it. I made one for each of my three kiddos.
A huge thanks to Dana and Disney for doing such a great job of rounding up all sorts of wonderful mother's day projects! Materials needed: 1/4 yard each of three coordinating fabrics (you'll definitely have scraps leftover) 8" zipper (you can always purchase a longer zipper and shorten it, just follow the directions on the package scraps of medium weight fusible interfacing Cutting the pieces: For the main exterior, cut two pieces, one 5.5" tall by 9" wide, and one 5.5" tall by 13" wide (this will be the gathered front) Pieces of medium weight fusible interfacing for exterior pieces of clutch: (2) 5.5" tall by 9" wide For the front band, cut one piece 4" tall by 9" wide.
For the house
Today’s tutorial is a remarkably easy one and I’m almost ashamed to present it to you. But after stitching happily all evening long on Sunday and putting it together yesterday I decided to share the fun anyway.
I love the look of a zippered box pouch...so incredibly cute.

Make it once, and you can use it forever – just move the numbers to their correct location each month, and change the nameplate!
Designer Deb Jensen kept in mind kids of all ages when she created these tiny music player totes in iota fabrics by Kelly Alford for Robert Kaufman. With the swivel hook that snaps onto jeans or totes, your music will go where you go. You'll want to make oodles for gifts or fashion accessories in today's bright paisleys, polka dots, or florals.
Hello and Happy Spring everyone! I just finished this pincushion from a jar! Here's the tutorial: Have you seen these new Ball® Wide Mouth Contemporary Styled Glass Preserving Jars? I love this little Half Pint size, especially if you turn it into a pincushion. I realize this is not a new idea and there are lots of instructions available for converting a jar lid into a pincushion, but I think maybe I should give you my version!
It seems as though babies are everywhere these days.
I decided to sew up this little zippered pouch, featuring circles and applique. The finished size of this cute little pouch is approximately 9.5" wide by 5.5" tall.
May I introduce you to my newest friend?
