Paper Flying Disc Pull the string and watch the Paper Flying Disc whiz and spin through the air. You can design all kinds of different flying discs and have your friends help you launch them. You can fly these discs inside or outside -- anywhere they can take flight and soar through the air. TUTORIAL: The City Backpack If you've come from Craftster or have read my previous blog post, then you'd already know what I'm talking about. If not, you can first read about it here, where there are more photos and details about this wonderful little bag. Thanks to some really lovely people, I got the boost I needed to make another tutorial. Of course, it took a lot of effort but making it went along pretty smoothly and easier than I initially thought.
Just Another Day in Paradise: Old MacDonald Puppet Tutorial and Pattern EDITED NOTE: A couple of you have reminded me that I didn't show a picture of poor Old MacDonald. MY bad! HERE is where you can find a lovely picture of Mr. Farmer. Thanks for bringing it to my lovely attention. Here is it! Ear Cuff Tutorial: The Double-Loop Technique It's been a bit since I've done a proper tutorial, hasn't it? Don't worry, I'll be doing some craftsy ones soon-- but fellow jewelers are in luck today! I've photographed the making of another kind of ear cuff (which I'm calling the "Double-Loop" because you kind of loop it twice... I'm having a really hard time coming up with names for these different ear cuffs!)

Autumn Flower Wreath Today I have a tutorial of sorts to share. It is not a full tutorial because 1. I learned to make the flowers from an already pretty amazing tutorial and 2. I left my camera in Ryan’s truck and was too impatient to wait to put it together until he came home so I don’t have photos of the actual attaching to the wreath phase of the project. Sometimes you just have to go with it when the crafting bug gets you. This wreath is a combination of a regular grape vine wreath you can purchase at the craft store, lots of coffee filter flowers and a few acorn and berry sprigs.
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!
charlaanne: made with love ETA: The pattern is now available! You can find it here...Love, Charla Anne. Lily loves playing with her little dolls and carrying case. I made them for her birthday last year. They are especially nice for keeping her quiet during church!
