Tricks + Treats: Little Birdie Plush by Viviana Agostinho

Tricks + Treats: Little Birdie Plush by Viviana Agostinho
Hi there! It's Viviana! Elsie asked me to share a cute plush DIY today for Tricks + Treats and I made this little bird just for you. Enjoy! A little birdie told me... Wanna know what this birdie is telling? The numbers in each birdie part correspond to the amount of pieces you will have to cut. To make your birdie you will need: - Felt and fabric of your choosing- 2 medium size buttons in any color- 2 small beads or buttons in black- Felt scraps in black and red- A handful of fiberfill- Thread, needles, pins... Place each part of the pattern on the wrong side of your fabric and felt and cut all the parts you will need. You will begin creating your birdie's front section. Sew front and back sections (wrong face up!) Fill body with fiberfill. Yay! Thanks so much, Viviana.

Saturday Morning Sowing Remember my little video for making newspaper plant pots? On Saturday morning, The Boy and I actually put our pots to use by gum. We smooshed moist potting soil into them.. Wrote-up some labels using old cut up mini-blinds... Snuggled them up nice and cozy into a couple of deep foam meat trays... Sowed some seed... Sprinkled a little soil and water on them. Now for the hard part... Hrm. This is a true test of my patience. Edited to Add on 3 Apr 2012: Please note that I've used black and white newspaper to make the pots as black ink is made of soy and safe to use around edibles. You have a great day now.

Tricks + Treats: Autumn Fabric Wreath by Elise Blaha Hi hi! My name is Elise and I am excited to share with you a simple DIY wreath that you can make with scraps of fabric, ribbon and a wire hanger. Carefully unfold the wire hanger and twist it into a circle shape. It doesn't have to be perfect, you won't see the wire once we are done. Begin tying scraps of fabric to the wire with a simple knot. (Scraps of about 7 inches will be best). Continue tying scraps varying the color and type of material. Once you have completely wrapped the wire, add a ribbon around the main frame and tie with a bow. It's ready to hang on your wall for the rest of the season! Thanks, Elsie, for having me!

Make Your Own Birdie Fringe Purse I love statement pieces, especially accessories! I created this pretty bird fringe purse because I wanted something special to wear this Autumn. This pretty project only took me about two hours to create. I hope you enjoy it... This little birdie is my vintage inspiration. Here's how I made mine.... Step 1: Draft a quick pattern on paper for your bird shape. I made a strap with two long strips of leather, lots of punches and yarn. A few thoughts about working with leather: I have been working with leather (and faux leather) for many years. I hope you've enjoyed my little bird purse D.I.Y. piñata Juste une envie de bonbons alors il nous fallait une piñata ! Pourquoi faire simple lorsque l ' on peut faire compliquer !Alors voici Lucas a l ' oeuvre : Une petite séance de séchage dehors entre deux couches . . . Voila , madame Monster ! Kika concentrée . . . . Ça n ' a pas été facile a casser mais on les a eu ces bonbons !

Song Lyric Wall Art / D.I.Y. Project A couple weeks ago, I found a paint-by-number at an unbeatable price. I can't pass these things up even though I already owned this particular design. I thought that I could maybe use it to make a fun D.I.Y., but my new rule is that all thrifts that I purchase with the intent of restyling need to get done right away. I have way too many half finished projects in my life. With that little bit of motivation I came up with a fun D.I.Y. to display some of my favorite song lyrcis in our newlywed home. Enjoy.... Here's how I did it... I displayed our piece in our bedroom, on Jeremy's side of the bed. A couple weeks ago, I found a paint-by-number at an unbeatable price.

Avec nos petits doigts C'est comme ça chez nous... Notre petit atelier ! Y'en a partout ! 2 machines à coudre (une chacune), de la laine, des boutons, des yeux qui bougent, des ciseaux, des crayons de toutes sortes, des papiers, des grelots, des rubans, de la pâte fimo, des tissus, de la peinture, des pots de bric et de broc... On teste, on essaie, on s'amuse ! Et puis, la préparation du calendrier de l'avent... Pfff... Et puis... Et puis... (Et encore, je ne vous montre pas tout nos essais...) Bref, un méga laboratoire ! Je voudrais y passer plus de temps... Faudrait juste que j'ai une horloge magique avec le chiffre 14 ou 15 dessus... Alors comme ce n'est pas encore le cas, je ne poste pas souvent en ce moment et je n'ai pas beaucoup plus le temps de venir vous rendre visite et de répondre à vos adorables commentaires... J'en suis désolée... Et là... C'est encore moOoOoOi ! Belle semaine à vous toutes !
