Larissa writes… Left: art made with this tutorial, Right: art made with alternate colors (see note at the end of the tutorial) Hey, Craft Campers! I’m delighted to participate in this summer kid-craft lineup. This 3D paper owl art project is for you and your crafty older kids, say around 11-ish years and up, who can wield a pair of scissors, handle smallish pieces and follow placement instructions carefully. Moms: You can definitely young this down by cutting out the shapes for younger kids, and skipping the pop dots and folding.

Alrighty young crafters, here’s what you will need to make the nighttime owl pictured above: Got all that together? Needle Felting 101. I've been seeing swiss cross blankets all over Pinterest and I decided to DIY one for our home.

Needle Felting 101

My first thought was to stamp it (similar to this blanket) but I wanted to try something a little different. This was my first adventure in needle felting. Have you tried needle felting before? It's easier than we thought. Here's how it's done... 1. . , Clover Felting Needle Mat. The ballet dress {a simple girls sewing tutorial} DIY a Kimono in 30 Minutes for Just $10! We’ve been seeing kimonos everywhere these days, and while the swoon factor is high, the price tags can be even higher.

DIY a Kimono in 30 Minutes for Just $10!

(Case in point, last month I fell in love with a gorgeous silk kimono shawl only to be broken up about the $220 price tag.) That got us thinking we just had to hack the look. Not only did we DIY our own flowy kimono in just 30 minutes — fair warning, this project requires you to have your sewing basics down — but by making the garment yourself, you can choose the print and fabric of your dreams, which means keeping an eye on the price tag, too. Our tropical patterned fabric “set us back” just $10! That’s a much better solution than shoveling out all that dough for the light fall layer, and truth: we feel just as fancy in ours! Materials:- 40 by 55-in piece of fabric (silk or chiffon) Tools:- pins – sewing machine – tailor’s chalk – fabric scissors – ruler Instructions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

And fiiiinally... the tutorial you've been waiting for.

ELM STREET LIFE: DIY: Bow clutch sewing tutorial.

This is my first real sewing tutorial - which scares me a bit, because I've never actually taken a sewing class, so I don't know all the terminology. What I do know is that I've learned to sew lots of things by reading tutorials, so hopefully I can make this simple enough that even you beginners can feel confident making a bag. And yes, a bag with a zipper! It can be done, I promise.There are plenty of photos, so hopefully that will help. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments section and I'll be happy to clarify. **Also, please note except where I say, "Sew close to the edge," I am using a 1/2" seam allowance throughout. Ok, let's get started! 1. Traveling Cable Hand Warmers. Since leaving my sunny California home for colder climates, I’ve always refused to succumb to such comforts as mittens, preferring coat pockets to clumsy woolen paws.

Traveling Cable Hand Warmers

But wait… Why didn’t anyone tell me about hand warmers?! Warm hands and wrists? Free fingers? That’s an accessory I can live with! Designed to coordinate with my Traveling Cable Hat, these Hand Warmers feature the same stitch pattern and require just one skein of Purl Soho’s beautiful spring-weight Mulberry Merino. Materials Gauge 28 stitches x 36 rows = 4 x 4 inches in stockinette stitch Size Finished Circumference: 6 inches unstretched, comfortably stretching to fit most adults Finished Length: 7 ¾ inches, with enough yarn to make each hand warmer at least 2 inches longer.
