I was inspired to make this DIY tote bag after I took a trip to the farmer's market and realized I needed a comfortable and lightweight bag to carry all my goodies. I love the way this DIY project turned out and, more importantly, there was no sewing involved! A pillowcase already has all the stitching you need to create this easy and stylish tote bag. The cross-body shoulder strap also makes it super comfortable to carry around all day. Just grab a pillowcase from your dresser, stamp it, give it a couple snips and you've got a custom carry-all tote for your next trip to the market! Follow the steps below to make your very own. Materials: • King Size Pillowcase (you could also use a standard size, but the bag will be smaller. • Acrylic Paint and a Dish Sponge (if you wish to add a pattern to the bag) • Long Fabric Strip (for the strap) • Scissors • Lay the pillowcase flat with the open end facing towards you.

With an abundant supply of rhinestone and brass curb chain, we decided to try weaving the components together to make our own collar necklaces. It was fun to see how wonderfully different the pieces turned out - each so fabulous in their own unique way! Honestly, isn’t that the best part about DIYing with friends?

Sweater-covered Flowerpots tutorial — Duo Fiberworks The Holidays were a lovely blur of knitting and I didn't photograph any of my projects- 4 cowls, 3 scarfs, 2 hats and a mitten (it was too small, back to the drawing board on that one.) We stayed close to home, made good food, lazed with family and got projects done around the house. Now that the holidays are past, I relish the work ahead of me- unpacking and getting settled in to my studio and making our house really feel like home.

Kelli Murray's Blog » Blog Archive » DIY JERSEY BABY HEADBAND This tutorial is easy peasy! And it only takes about 15 minutes to make!

So, naturally, it's time to hack! Each strap took us about 5 minutes and cost less than 5 dollars. The best thing about this how-to is that once you know a few simple tricks, you can create a whole bunch of camera straps that are easy to swap out depending on what you're wearing and where you're headed.
