Sandpaper Printed T-shirt Kids Craft
This is a super simple sandpaper printing technique that will keep your kids busy and make one cute shirt! The best part about this fun little craft is that the supplies were bought at the Dollar Store, even the T-shirt! We used crayons we already had so we only spent $2.00 on our new T-shirt. Supplies for Sandpaper Prints good quality crayons, a t-shirt, iron and fine sandpaper. Our package of sandpaper had a selection and we used the finest. Directions for Making a Sandpaper Printed T-shirt Color a fun design on the sandpaper. Place a piece of cardboard inside the t-shirt to keep the design from bleeding through to the back of the shirt. Place a piece of parchment paper or paper towel on top of the sandpaper to protect the iron. Remove the sandpaper. To set the color, place a couple of paper towels on top of the design and iron.

Ladies Who Lunch All my closest friends know that I (Chanel) am forever on the search for the perfect, chic lunch box. And believe it or not, a lot of the prettiest and well-designed carriers out there are super expensive. So with this personal challenge in mind and with Picnic Week in the air, I was inspired to create my very own reusable lunch bag. Taking my pattern directly from the handy-dandy, classic paper lunch sacks that I predict will be around forever and ever, I put together this canvas version that’s reusable, washable and most of all, super pretty. There was a lot of hand-stitiching involved, but it wasn’t difficult at all and I’m head-over-heels in love with the final product. Keep reading for instructions, and I’d love to know how you all transport food around stylishly!

Art from found objects After a busy week getting ready for another lovely fair at Castle Acre, I have the chance this week to give some attention to my Fossil project. This textile is gradually progressing and showing me what I need to do to it. I had acquired a bucket of nails after some improvements to our church, you know, just in case! With these nails I’ve decided to do some rust dying….never done it before but I love experimenting. The reason is because laid out I thought I might be able to create the shape of a vertebrae.

mad in crafts: DIY Fire & Ice Lanterns The old becomes new: A new variation on the outdoor lantern. We have had an unusually warm winter in Michigan this year, and while the temps have been nice, I have had to hold off on this project idea until we got a cold snap. We finally got some snow and cold earlier this week, so I was able to try out this fun winter project. I had pinned a product called Globe Ice Lantern Kits a few months back recognizing that I could DIY them at home. Originally priced at nearly $30 for a kit that makes 6 lanterns, I think they are very reasonable for a small batch.

I laid the printed design out on the wood and thought I could just trace the design on the paper with firm pressure and a little impression line would be left on the wood that I could just go back and trace. Um, nope.
