This is a really fun, simple project. Yet another way to fancy up some plain tees or a great fix for old shirts with holes. It takes a little practice to master sewing a curved design like this one. I'm definitely not there yet but, I was pretty impressed with myself this time around. If you're unsure of your sewing skills try finding a design with straight lines i.e. a cross or monogram of your initial. Materials: Fabric Fusible Interfacing (one side) T-shirt(s) Stencils (optional) Tutorial: For this project, you can choose to draw your own design or use a stencil. Draw your design backwards onto the non-fusible side of a piece of interfacing. Fuse the design onto the wrong side of your fabric. Turn your tee inside out. Carefully sew over the marked line. Tie and cut off loose strings. Cut off the extra material around your design. Make a snip through the knit at the center of the design and cut off all the extra fabric on the inside of your stitches. Here's one I did using my own drawing:

Little boxy pouch tutorial « three bears My latest favourite thing to make, little boxy pouches. It took me almost an entire morning, lots of paper and sellotape and countless cups of tea to figure this out. I’m here to save you the bother. Fully lined zippered box pouch - pattern and tutorial - it's a Pretty Modern life I love the look of a zippered box pouch...so incredibly cute.

You will need: How to Create a Wine Cork Letter We just added my favorite font, American Typewriter, to our font options so I was excited to create a project with it. Since our wine cork K is one our most popular photos I thought the two would make a great pair. I’ve seen several renditions of this project floating around Pinterest and decided I like the ones that have mainly the purple end of the cork facing forward. Don’t be shy about the size of the letter, go big! Smaller letters end up being overwhelmed by the corks, plus bigger letters leave more room to fit the corks naturally. And please, whatever you do, don’t cut the corks to make them fit.
