Upcycle Style: Braided T-shirt Rug I love making projects that involve at least one of the following criteria: decluttering, upcycling, sewing and a need. This Braided T-shirt Rug ticks all the boxes, so when I spotted a circular rug made by Sewing For Life on Pinterest, I was itching to start on my own immediately. Here’s why…Declutter – I’d been hounding Mr Man to clear out some of his old t-shirts that he no longer wears, the bottom actually fell out of his t-shirt draw from the weight of all the excess clothing!Upcycle – Most of said t-shirts were well past their use by date with most of them having holes, stretching or stains, so charity donation was not an option. Christmas ornament with popsicle sticks, an easy project for kids! Make a God's Eye ornament out of popsicle sticks, an easy project for kids! You will need: 2 popsicle sticks OR anything remotely like a stick Yarn or string We have made God's Eyes using twigs from the yard, popsicle sticks, toothpicks (using string instead of yarn). The larger one shown here was made from two plastic and wire "stalks" snipped off of some silk flowers. You can hold the sticks together with your hands while you start winding the yarn, but for small fingers, you might want to glue them together (in the shape of a cross) and leave to dry overnight before wrapping.

Sweet Tea Imagery – Charleston, SC Family, Vacation, Beach, Baby, Engagement Photographers As you know, I am still working on fixing up our house day by day. One project that seems to be ongoing is getting window treatments up. And for anyone that’s been down this road, you know, custom shades are pretty pricey. Shape Book Tute I’ve had an overwhelming response to this project and everyone wants a tutorial, so here you go. First off, gather your supplies: - book for dismembering, paperbacks are great - template (I made half an apple out of a thick piece of chipboard) sewing 101: fabric boxes It seems no matter what I do, I can never get a handle on all the tiny odds and ends that accumulate around my house. From craft materials to hair ties, the bits and bobs are constantly trying to take over, so in the never-ending quest to corral them, these little fabric bins were born. You can make one of these soft boxes in almost no time, and in almost any size, so you can customize them to perfectly fit whatever you need to hold. Top each one off with a label holder (also customizable in any shade of the rainbow, thanks to nail polish), and you’ll have a leg up on clutter . . . for a little while, at least. — Brett Bara

Sweet Tooth Pouch We don't normally have a lot of candy in the house. Well, the Halloween candy (at least nothing with chocolate - because that's all eaten within hours) is still in a jar in the kitchen cupboard. This little project was inspired by my son who asks for candy from the brightly colored packages at the checkout at Target.

DIY Cereal Box Gift Tags With Christmas right around the corner, there are a million things to do in the way of decorating, list making, gift buying and travel planning. It can be overwhelming, especially if you’ve resolved to have a handmade holiday. Because DIY projects can be a bit of an investment and a little more work, I like to focus on ones that will serve me year round (while staying season-appropriate). It’s easy to get lost in the idea of “doing it yourself” in order to save money and vent some of that creative energy, but the “saving money” part can get tossed out the window fast if a lot of your projects are only useful once or twice a year.
