La trousse de la rentrée et son tuto But I mostly noticed when, trying to get into a stationnery store, I got kicked out by a guard sorting the clients out... no kids, no entry... (Ok, that didin't really happen but, you never know, maybe, one day...) Ceci dit, il faut en avoir (du mérite) pour affronter les papeteries et autres rayons 'rentrée des classes' des supermarchés ces jours-ci... c'est la foire à l'empoigne, les gosses qui pleurent, les files kilométriques à la caisse... l'horreur! Anyway, anyone trying to go to the 'back to school' department of a store needs a lot of will and bravery... people are lining for hours or wrestling over a map, the kids are crying... a total nightmarre!
A Better Marker Pouch I made more marker pouches this past fortnight. First, a peek into our handmade past. It was well-loved and much-used, but it was never any good, to be honest. Very hard to keep markers from falling out in transit, and spreads over too much space when open to access those markers. I know that this is practically craft blasphemy, given how utterly adored these pencil/crayon/marker/knitting-needle/crochet-hook/paintbrush/cosmetic implement rolls are in the DIY world, and I apologize in advance if I am offending any Devotees Of The Roll, but they don't work for me. Now, just like everyone else on that particular handmade bandwagon, I've made Rolls, and had my girls use them but . . . do you know what they almost always pick to use instead, given the choice?
Little boxy pouch tutorial « three bears My latest favourite thing to make, little boxy pouches. It took me almost an entire morning, lots of paper and sellotape and countless cups of tea to figure this out. I’m here to save you the bother. This little bag is 4.5 inches long, 3 inches high and 2 inches deep, just right for a lipstick and a compact (or better still, lots of sweets).

Knit Bow Ring Tutorial A couple weekends ago I made myself a little knit bow ring just for fun and completely fell in love with it! I recently listed a few in my Etsy shop, with more colors to come as soon as I make it through the next few weeks. I thought I would share how I made the bow ring with my fellow knitters for a fun, thanks for being so awesome, graduation gift to you. Enjoy! Materials: Applique inverse: un tutoriel This is a really fun, simple project. Yet another way to fancy up some plain tees or a great fix for old shirts with holes. It takes a little practice to master sewing a curved design like this one. I'm definitely not there yet but, I was pretty impressed with myself this time around. If you're unsure of your sewing skills try finding a design with straight lines i.e. a cross or monogram of your initial.

Giant Paper Rose Flower If you loved the beautiful DIY wedding this morning and Nata’s gorgeous paper flower bouquets, you are in luck as Nata is sharing how she crafted them with us! She was inspired by a template created by Morgan Levine on Martha Stewart (as was I in the flowers I created for this styled shoot). I just love that this basic idea has inspired different brides to create their own version of giant paper flowers – you might remember these equally awesome giant paper flowers from this wedding I shared last year. :) Thanks so much Nata for sharing how you created your giant pink paper rose + special thanks to Studio Castillero for the photos of the DIY + her wedding! Step 1: Cut the petals Cut 5-6 teardrop petals and 15-6 heart-shaped petals from the petal colored crepe paper.
open wide zippered pouch: DIY tutorial Doesn’t it ever get annoying digging through a zippered pouch? I love being able to see what’s inside and what I’m searching for. I spotted this little pouch the other day and had to make something similar. I also made a bunch of sizes, but today I’ll show you the small size, next time, I’ll share the medium and large sizes (not pictured) so you can make all three! Materials: fabric, 1/4 yard would be plentyzipper, at least 10″ long or longerthreadinterfacing of your choice, I used Pellon 101SF, or skip it all togetherscrap for zipper end pull Ruffle Tote Bag Tutorial I started out to make this bag thinking it would be cute but not something I would carry around myself. I was really just doing it as a project option for Week 5 of the Learn to Sew series. But now that it’s done I am in love and I think I just might keep it for myself. If you have a daughter I think it would be fantastic as a little dance bag or you could use it yourself for a library bag.
