When I found some big plastic eggs with clear tops at Walmart I was thrilled! These would be absolutely perfect for an I SPY toy. After a quick trip to the craft store, I was ready to get started. It’s a simple and quick DIY project that your kids or grandkids or students will love…

Shopping list: How to make animal pom-poms - Mr Printables Blog After making those flower pompoms, I couldn’t help making more. Maybe it’s called procrastination.

how to transfer a photo to fabric Did you know you can transfer photos to fabric without using iron-on sheets? I love this technique. It's simple to execute and the end results are really pretty. It's another method for hand printing! I made some fabrics the other day and used them to add pockets to one of my wool skirts. bags/totes/purses What a fun series idea!

Knitting Crochet Sewing Crafts Patterns and Ideas! For this Kid's Fair Isle Vest I used a technique credited to a tiny island north of Scotland (aka Fair Isle) and a stitch pattern from another tiny island, this one west of Estonia (Muhu). In times and places where, by logic, function should have ruled sweater design, instead, knitters seemed to have taken sheer joy in form.

Armed with the beautiful book, Designs and Patterns from Muhu Island, I used a pared-down palette and design to bring a modern sensibility to this extraordinary traditional stitch pattern.
