Crayon Roll

Crayon Roll
I have been looking for a crayon roll/holder tutorial but can’t seem to find one. I have found plenty of these little holders for sale but no directions. So here is my version. And if anyone finds/has other instructions, let me know and we can link them. **These instructions were created for my daughter’s long erasable crayons that are almost twice as long as a standard crayon. You’ll Need: 2 pieces of fabric – 14 x 21 and 8 x 21 (inches)1 piece of ribbon – 20 inches long, give or take.Matching thread **All seams are to be made at 1/2 inch. First, cut out your pieces of fabric… And then fold them in half, lengthwise. Then on the smaller piece of fabric, make a seam right along the fold, close to the edge. Then open up the larger piece of fabric and lay the smaller one on top, matching the two raw edges of the smaller one with the one raw edge of the bigger piece. Sew along all 3 sides (not the fold) leaving a 4 inch gap at the bottom, so that you can turn it right side out. Related posts:

DIY Geek Shoes, I Want To Make ‘Em – D E F E C T I V E G E E K S These geeky DIY (Do-It-Yourself) shoes started showing up on my Pinterest page and I thought they were pretty rad. I would love to make some myself but I know I’m too much of a lazy bastard to even get around to it. Still, I decided to use the power of Google search and comply a list of tutorials of these fashionably, nerdy shoes. I love these Batman flats! You can find the how-to instructions on this website: Cut Out and Keep. These R2-D2 inspired shoes are actually painted by nerdporn on! Geekfemme on blogspot has a bunch of photos from a nerdy-shoe-making party she hosted. From that same party,’s Clone War heels turned out super cute. I also discovered her blog post on these incredible Doctor Who shoes (that I can never own) by Lonely-Soles.

DIY Tutorials Tutorial: How To Attach Fringe January 24, 2014 Last week I posted a tutorial on how to quickly make a lot of fringe at once and now I’m going to show you how I attach fringe!

Andy the Android Hip Pack I love my Droid X and have already made two crochet projects in homage to it. You can see my Android Amigurumi and my Andy Hat on my blog. I've posted pictures as well as patterns. I wanted to combine my love for the character Andy, with something that can help me carry around my phone, as well as my ID and perhaps a lip gloss and other small things. Sometimes I want to go out without a purse, but I still want to look hip, I don't want to have bulging solution, the Andy Hip Pack. Andy is crocheted in regular wool, then he is fulled, to make a felt texture. In case you're an established crocheter, I am including the pattern below. Body make 2, but join the back piece to the head Row 1 Ch 15 Row 2-20 sc 14, ch 1 turn Bo Sides make 2 Row 1 ch 21 Row 2-4, sc 20, ch 1, turn Bo Top of head Row 1 Make a loop, push hook into back of chain for each stitch, sc 20, ch 1, turn row 2-3 sc 20, chain 1 turn Bo Bottom of body Row 1, join one row, same as on head Row 2-3, sc 14, ch 1, turn

Kid’s (Small) Messenger Bag When my two-year-old son decides he wants to go somewhere he picks up my purse, puts it over his shoulder, and heads for the door. As cute as that is, Daddy thought a cool boyish bag should be made for him as soon as possible! So I came up with this messenger bag that’s toddler sized. So let’s get started. 2 rectangles of fabric, one each for the inside and outside of the bag, 15.5″ wide X 31.5″ 4 rectangles of fabric, two each for the inside and outside of the 2 pockets, 11″ wide x 6″ tallA shoulder strap cut to a length that fits your or your child comfortably (my son’s is 32″)My free pattern you can download here in Google Docs. All seam allowances are 3/8″ unless otherwise noted. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Looking for the Accuquilt Giveaway?

stamp tutorial (Hearts Afire, 12" x 12", hand-carved stamps on heavy watercolor paper, 2007) (This tutorial can also be purchased as an e-book from both and Barnes and Nobel.) Every artist needs primary source material. Primary source material is original images, sketches, drawings and photographs that the artist herself has generated without the aid of any outside sources. In other words, the shot you snapped of light reflecting off water, the sketch you made of your kitty, or the watercolor landscape you painted a few years ago is your primary source material. Finding PSM becomes challenging (and often disheartening) if you're an artist like me who doesn't draw. That very fact alone nearly stopped me dead in my tracks years ago, when the desire for making art began to bubble inside me in earnest. So how does an artist who can't, don't, or won't draw get original imagery into their art? Let's get to it. Corrugated Cardboard Stamps What You'll Do: To Clean: wipe gently with a damp cloth Voila!

painted glass tabletop I try to get my hands on every material I can think of, and sadly, that means I can never make a quick trip to the hardware store. Even when I plan to rush in and grab a packet of bolts or a can of paint, I always leave three hours later with those things, plus a sample of random plastic tubing and tons of half-formed ideas. But when this project from Kara Paslay landed in my inbox, I ran to the store, bought the supplies, and wasted no time making one of these tabletops myself. This project is so easy to re-create; even the intricate triangle design that Kara has made requires mainly patience and a steady hand. I think this would make a wonderful project for outdoors; since the painting is on the underside of the glass, it can be protected from the elements and easily cleaned. It’s great that you can customize the design however you please, but Kara’s bright, summery geometric pattern was too beautiful for me to pass up. Have a DIY project you’d like to share?

Crayon Roll~My Take on these little life-savers! How about another handmade gift idea? I thought I’d give these little crayon rolls a try just in time for Christmas gift giving! The best tutorial I’ve found, and I’ve looked at a hundred, is at Skip To My Lou. Here’s my take… You need 3 coordinating fabrics: *2 pieces of fabric 5 x 16 1/2 . *1 piece fabric 6 x 16 1/2 -folded in half and ironed. * 1 piece of lightweight fusible interfacing 5 x 16 1/2 * Ric-Rac Trim * Ribbon for tie * Heat & Bond Vinyl 5 x16 1/2 *Crayons! Iron on the interfacing to wrong side of the inside fabric. Follow instructions and iron the vinyl to the right side of the inside piece of fabric. Pin the pocket piece onto the inside piece of fabric. Pin ric rack around entire inside piece. Sew inside to outside piece. When it’s right side out you’ll need to iron your fabric. Top stitch around edges and closing the opening while you’re at it! Many thanks to Skip to My Lou I love that website to the moon and back! Do you know a wee-one who might like one of these?

Les lettres scintillantes de Paper Cup On en a vu beaucoup, sur internet, de ces grandes lettres scintillantes. Mais celles-ci, que nous propose aujourd’hui la talentueuse Minhee de Paper Cup (dont on vous a déjà parlé plusieurs fois) ont un petit quelque chose en plus : elles sont faciles à réaliser. Les feuilles de polystyrène sont très simples à découper, aussi, vous pouvez-même vous lancer, avec ce principe, dans la confection de très grandes lettres, ou de projets plus complexes comme la fabrication d’une phrase complète. La preuve en suivant ces quelques étapes… Pour réaliser la guirlande pailletée, vous avez besoin de…- Peinture en spray dorée- Ruban fin en satin noir (ou une autre couleur de votre choix!)

Etape 2 – Le cœur des fleursDécoupez le papier crépon sur 15x5cm, puis prenez le fil de fer et enroulez-le en partant d’une extrémité. Merci Minhee pour cette brillante idée!

Make it Do Gift: Cozy Bed Warmers A cozy bed warmer is one of my favorite things. Put them in the microwave for a few minutes and they work wonders for cold feet, aches and pains, or plain old stress relief. Bed warmers make a such a wonderful gift. They are easy to make, inexpensive, and both pampering and useful. For years I would climb into bed in the winter and put my cold feet on my husband’s legs to warm them up. Last year for Christmas, my Mom made them for all of her grandchildren. My husband steals mine for back or neck aches… come to think of it, maybe he needs one for Christmas. To heat up your bed warmer, simply put it in the microwave for 3 to 4 minutes. You can make a bed warmer filled with feed corn, rice or buckwheat. We have found several fabrics that make good warmers, such as cotton chenille, cotton flannel or cotton fabric. I prefer a bed warmer with a removable, washable cover. Here’s what you will need for this project: Here’s how to make a cozy bed warmer: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Bon bref, j'ai des collants et leggings qui étaient prêts à partir à la poub, mais comme toujours avant de jeter je réfléchis et me pose la question... puis-je recycler? hihi ça peut durer un instant. Et là pour le coup, le côté stretch des collants surtout les épais m'ont donné une idée, en coupant de larges rondelles de saucisson ça doit bien faire des élastiques. j'en coupe un bout pour voir aux ciseaux et test sur ma splendide crinière. Mais c'est super! rooo comme je suis contente de moi, vite faut que je dépose le truc avant Nabila à moi la richesse!! je fais la petite danse de la victoire yep! sous les yeux ahuris de ma fille qui soupire de désespoir. pffff tant pis même pas honte.

Triangles and polka dots I gave some hints last week about 'something' I whipped together for the birthday girl. Since she's officially ten now, and all the presents were unwrapped and all ten candles were blown out last night (the cake we still have plenty off, but that's a story for later), I can finally show you some pictures. As some of you already guessed, I made a flag garland. I used whichever fabric I had available from my failing bag business. Now, if you want to try this, all you need is fabric in a couple of different prints and/or colors, cut to triangles (I used the same size triangle for all flags, but you could vary sizes if you like, or even combine different shapes), some biais tape and thread. For the polka dot garland, just hop over here to find a short description. Wishing you a good week! xo, P.

Bunny Finger Puppets Besides being adorable, these little puppets are a snap to make. You could make the whole set of five (or more) in one evening with time to spare. I think little handmade touches like these really make something like an Easter basket all the more special. --Molly Materials To make a set of five (or more!)
