The 30 Minute $6 Dress Tutorial

The perfect dress is hard to come by. I like my dresses to be cheap, and long enough. (I’m not a fan of super short dresses!) Cheap and long dresses don’t seem to go hand in hand.. so, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself! Here is a tutorial for a simple yet cute dress. Living with Punks: Made: Jelly Roll Floor Pillow. Let me start by saying this….

Living with Punks: Made: Jelly Roll Floor Pillow

This floor cushion is the bomb! Easy roll hem. Next up in the Tips + Tricks series is the easy roll hem.

I usually get at least one request for a tutorial every time I post a photo of a rolled hem so I thought I should get on this one. I learned this technique from one of our seamstresses at work, Jurata, when she couldn’t believe that I didn’t learn how to do the regular roll hem technique in school. This is the slightly cheater method that she taught me in order to get me used to making them for the non-cheater technique she later showed me. I’ll do another Tips + Tricks for the regular roll hem later, don’t worry.

Flourless Chocolate Brownie Cookies....so easy &so good!! Clear Toy Storage Bags (with drawstring closure) Why do kids like toys with so many itty bitty little pieces?

Clear Toy Storage Bags (with drawstring closure)

I guess it increases the fun factor. Tiny brushes. Tiny shoes. Tiny tea pot sets. Tiny cars. So that’s what I did. I made a clear vinyl cinched-up pouch……that she can easily tote around with her little rubber-clothed dolls inside. No more anxiety, wondering where all the little pieces of your children’s toys will go. Just bag it up and make it fun for them to put all their pieces back into their special bag. See?

Read below to learn how to make this cute fluffy fleece dog bed! I’ve made… four of these now? At least four. Anyway, you can make these all different heights and diameters (π is your friend). Loki already loves it, he’s sleeping on it right now under my desk. You’ll need 1 1/4 yards of fleece. I cut the 26″ square first, then folded in it fourths. (If you buy 1 1/3 yards, you can squeeze out 28″ circles, but not much more than that.) Now, sew the long pieces together on the short side, right sides together, to make once long piece. Now mark the halfway points on both circles. Now take one circle and place it right sides together with the long piece, matching the center seam to the center point.

Sew in both directions starting from this center point/seam to 4″ from the other center point. DIY Shift Dress - Martha Stewart Crafts - StumbleUpon. Little Red Infinity Dress Tutorial. February 14, 2011.
