Reversible Coffee Cup Sleeves

Reversible Coffee Cup Sleeves
I’m gonna tell you right now, you can’t throw a rock and not hit a tutorial for a coffee cup sleeve out there on the web. Reversible, not reversible, buttons, Velcro, skinny, wide, you name it. For that matter, you can probably work a pattern out yourself. However, just in case your rock lands here, I’m going to share my version with you. I’ve made a few of these for Christmas and birthday gifts. You can see the one I made for my grandma here. I was trying to decide which fabrics to use for a new one and my wandering eyes landed on my seasonal fabric stack. To make one, you’ll need this coffee cup sleeve pattern . Cut one from cotton batting, two from ironing board cover fabric and two from cotton fabric. I happen to have scraps of batting and ironing board fabric, but if you don’t and will be buying the supplies, another product you can use is InsulBrite. You’ll only need half of the hair tie, so zigzag stitch through the center, about 3/8” long, then clip through the center. Lay flat.

Printable Love Coupon Book Printable Love Coupon Book Why hello there! I’m Talitha from Love, Pomegranate House and I am thrilled to be joining the I Heart Nap Time Creative Team! I’ve loved Jamielyn and I Heart Nap Time for quite some time and I am so excited for this awesome opportunity! » DIY: Tank Dress with Pockets! academichic At long last, I present a tutorial for the tank dress I made a few weeks ago before the end of the semester blindsided me. I’ve been seeing these tank+patterned skirt all over the place lately, but frequently they were too short or too short-waisted for my particular proportions. After some googling, and studying the really excellent skirt tutorial and t-shirt dress tutorial at Ruffles and Stuff and the skirt with pockets tutorial at Freshly Picked, I decided that even my fairly rudimentary sewing skills could handle this project. And since I celebrated my height yesterday for Dress Your Best week, it seems appropriate to post a sewing project prompted by my need for a longer-than-in-stores dress.

Water Balloon Luminaries A fun and easy project with a beautiful payoff. Learn how to make these Balloon Luminaries. You will need: High-Melt Paraffin Wax (IGI 1260)Party BalloonsDouble BoilerCookie Sheet Instructions: Quill Snowflakes - Martha Stewart Christmas Quilling, also called paper filigree, originated in Europe more than five hundred years ago; it involves rolling and combining strips of paper into highly detailed designs. A snowflake ornament is made from eight V-shaped strips of paper, curled at the ends with a quilling needle and joined with a dot of glue at the center. The ornament looks rather majestic here, but it is actually just about two and a half inches tall. Before working on the ornament, practice some quilling basics. Wind a strip of paper around the needle; it will form a tight curl.

Make a gift bow In gift wrap emergencies when you've got the present but need some wrapping, here's an idea for turning a magazine page into a bow. There may be better ways to stick this thing together, but I used what I had on hand: staples and adhesive glue dots. Double stick tape or brads should work, too. Cut a magazine page lengthwise into 9 strips, 3/4" wide. Leave 3 of the strips full length.

V and Co how to: jersey knit bracelet i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach...as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home. *sigh* okay...

FUN WITH DECALS This post has been quite a while in the making. It all started with my decal penny pendant project that uses vintage decals. I had received a lot of emails asking where to find such decals. They aren’t so much as rare, but do take some searching and patience to find. So I went out on the hunt for alternatives to vintage decals and found DecalPaper.com an online company that sells inkjet printable water-slide decal sheets. My wheels haven’t stopped spinning since.

29 Recycled Easter Ideas It's not too late to get inspired with 29 recycled Easter ideas! Our local Metro newspaper reported that Swedes eat 6,000 tons of candy during Easter. With my very non-scientific figures that's equal to the full take-off weight of 12 Boeing 747s including passengers and cargo, or 3,600 Volvo S60s, or nearly 33 million bananas.
