Quilted Zipper Bag......Tutorial This was so much fun........I thought you might like to make one too!

DIY Gifts for Men, Necktie Zip Pouches My husband was about to give away a bunch of stained and old neckties, sensing a creative project I snagged them before they were donated. I turned the old ties into these DIY Necktie Zip Pouches. A very very simple sewing project that would make a great Christmas DIY gifts for men or that ever elusive teenage boy! Each pouch is made from 2 ties, one for the front of the pouch and one for the back. Are you surprised you can get so much fabric from a tie? So was I! I had so much fun making these that I just kept going and made more. For one of the pouches I added a contrast stripe to the center (the fabric that’s on the back of the pouch). I even reused the tag from the back of the tie, a fun little touch especially if the ties are sentimental. Want to make one?

Unzip the zipper. Related

Sock Monkey Gosh… I am supposed to sew some thing for the Earth Month this April, but I can’t wait to sew these sock monkeys. My hands simply took over my head and see what I did after a few days and nights of sewing…. a house full of sock monkeys!!!! Do you love them? I have seen a lot of sock monkey photos hanging around friends’ photo albums in many photo sharing websites, so envy. These sock monkeys are so cute and so adorable that I would want to hug one, I bet my kids would love to have them to accompany too when mommy is busy with works. …. With different sizes of socks, I made the sock monkey out of a family, from baby, toddlers, teens to adult. 3rd picture in the above album shows the family photo of the sock monkey, from daddy, mommy, sister, brother, triplet toddlers, and a baby. The siblings are indeed loving each other, not only they are huggy to human, but they also hug each other, like this one. {Get full details on next page.} Pages: 1 2 Get all updates via email:

Blog Archive DIY: Spa Towel Wrap I hope you’ve had your coffee, cause I’m getting up close and personal this morning. When you step out of the shower or bath, what is your first layer of choice, after drying off your bum with your towel? Are you a robe person? Do you immediately dress? Or do you dance around to bad 80s metal in your skivvies? (Don’t tell us, if the latter is you.) Quite frankly, I am none of the above. My old storebought spa wrap was getting a bit tattered after years of use, so I thought I’d just make myself a new one. One clearance towel + 1/2 yard of cute cotton fabric + one afternoon = glam spa towel wrap. Here is the pink version I made for my girl: Let me say this loud and clear. Here is the grown up version: Turn a towel and some fabric into a stylish spa wrap for you, your child, a friend, or family member.
