My husband jokes every time I get the bottle of Mod Podge out that I’m going to Mod Podge fabric to our computer keys or Mod Podge our kids clothing to their bodies. Hey, don’t tempt me. I know, I may go a little overboard with this stuff…….but I just had to try it on some shoes. And using some of my favorite fabric. How fun would these be if you matched them to a cute skirt you’ve made? Anyway, this is my first time applying fabric to shoes with Mod Podge and I am in no way claiming that this will last on here forever. Edited To Add: Emilee left a comment and mentioned outdoor Mod Podge… Sure enough, I found some online here. Do you want to try it out yourself? Grab a pair of your old flats or buy a nice inexpensive/clearance pair to try it out on. (I cut the bows off.) Just lay a piece of fabric over the shoe, big enough to cover the entire thing. Trim around the edges, just so there’s not tons hanging over the edge. Apply some Mod Podge to the toe of the shoe. Allow to dry completely.

Whirl-it lampshade - free DIY tutorialWe really needed a new lamp, and we´ve planned to make one for months. This week we finally got around to it. It takes a bit of different materials, but it´s really easy when you´ve started. We recommend making it outdoors, as it gets quite messy. The result is pretty neat, especially at night when the threads cast shadow on the walls. We planned to make the lamp using the yarn Garnstudio Ice, but it ran out really quickly, and we had to improvise by using a thinner yarn to complete it. What we used One big, round balloon. How we did itGather all the materials.Put the yarn into the glue and mix properly. Fill the balloon to a desireable size. Hang it and start whirling. Whirl pretty tightly.
Paper, Beads & Inspiration: Fun with wallpaper and Mod PodgeI have been enjoying myself with my wall paper sample books. I am also for the first time ever using Mod Podge. I had been reading about Mod Podge a lot lately and the glossy variety looked like just the kind of stuff to finish my beads. I had tried varnish and that worked OK but it didn't get a nice gloss. There are quite a few other varieties of Mod podge so there is more undiscovered crafting fun left for me! I then rolled the beads on bamboo skewers and glued them down with "Tacky Glue" As soon as they were dry I coated them in glossy Mod Podge. I had to leave it then for a day as I had to "other stuff" but I managed to finish it Saturday. ( this is an edit because this morning I realised I had not added a photograph of the finished piece.
How to Make Rag Rugs – Tutorial How to Make a Beautiful Braided RugHow to Make Rag Rugs 72K+ As I've mentioned before, we've been very excited to get moved into our farmhouse since we basically found out we didn't have any other options. But even though that was the case, we are determined to make the best of it that we can. Previously to moving into our camper, we sold everything. Well I guess not everything turns out the way we planned so here we are, 9 months later in our new home without anything much for it and without any money to buy things for it. One of the things I wanted for my new house was some pretty rugs. It was incredibly cheap (for a nice rug) and not very hard to put together. What You Need: Rags, Old Clothing, Old Sheets, ectScissorsSewing MachineThread I found 2 old sheets at a thrift store in good shape. Start by cutting a small strip on the end of the sheet (lengthwise, not across). Keep tearing strips from the sheets until you have as many as you want. Then take a pull all the frayed strings off the edges of each piece. Then braid!
Fresh and Fun: Vintage Sheet Wrapped Frame -- A TutorialI have tons and tons of vintage sheet strips left over from all that fat quarter cutting. Now what to do with all those strips. I have several projects that I will share with you soon the first of which is Vintage Sheet Wrapped Frames. I always pick up nice frames at the thrift store and hold onto then until a mood strikes me. Gather a frame any size, it does not matter unless you already know what you want to use it with, then you may need a certain size.. You will also need scissors, glue and strips of vintage sheets or fabric. ok rewind, back up, edit. Glue the end of a strip onto your frame, on the back or side, not on the front. When you get to a corner be sure to put glue at the corner. I love this project. A few things. My frame had enough lip on the back that it just hung on a nail beautifully, you may have to devise a way for yours to hang. I will be leaning mine on my mantle, I like it there. More vintage sheet strips projects coming soon.
