Dish Towel Bunny February 12th, 2013 posted by Crafter's Community Materials: 1 dish towel 2 washcloths Ribbon If you make this project we’d love to see it! What you do Lay the dishtowel on the table with the wrong side up. Tie with a piece of ribbon as close to the dishtowel as you can (tie a bow with the ribbon) (Fig. 4). Slide the “arms” in between the back and front of the dishtowel up to the “neck”. Bring the “hands” to the front and tie at the “wrists” with another bow (Fig. 8). Poem for Kitchen Bunny // I am your kitchen bunny when you tire of me untie my bows…and I will become 2 washcloths and one drying towel If you enjoy kid’s crafts, sign up for our Busy Little Hands weekly newsletter for free crafts and kid’s recipes direct toyour email box!

cherished*vintage To me, the best part about Halloween, is decorating. Ya know, I never was into seasonal decorating (well...except for Christmas), until I had kids. They get so excited and that makes it so fun!Each year, I like to add something new and change things up a bit. One thing I added this year - the 'BOO' sign I painted for our front porch entry that is bat infested. Inside, I made a bare branch tree swarming with bats - scary! The girls and I cut out bats from black construction paper and hot glued them randomly to the branches. Kinda into bats this year, as you can see - ha! I'll be hosting a Halloween themed get-together next week, and wanted an easy craft for the group to do. I thought fabric pumpkins would be fun and something that everyone could enjoy through Thanksgiving. I used scraps of vintage chenille, driftwood for the stems, and felted wool sweaters for the leaves. Having all the supplies on hand was a bonus! Well, there you have it.

New Life To An Old Bag With Charms There is nothing more fun for me to take something old and a bit ‘off and give it new life. Today was the turn of this little straw bag. To renew it I thought of adding a row of hearts made and decorated with polymer clay. Non c’è cosa più divertente per me che prendere qualcosa di vecchio e un po’ spento e dargli nuova vita. Here’s what you need: an old bag and polymer clay in the colors that you prefer. Ecco cosa vi serve: una vecchia borsa e del fimo nei colori che preferite. Once you’ve softened your polymer clay hang up to have a thin layer. Una volta ammorbidito il fimo stendetelo fino ad avere uno strato sottile. Decorate the hearts according to your tastes, I chose blue and yellow to do not make them too excessive but brighter colors would have been beautiful too. Decorate i cuori secondo i vostri gusti, io ho scelto il blu e giallo per non farla troppo eccessiva ma anche dei colori più accesi sarebbe stati bellissimi. You may also like:

DIY - Plexiglass Bag I’ve always loved the plexiglass bags, even when anyone liked it, maybe that’s why I have always collected boxes of this material, of every size and shape, waiting for inspiration to transform them into something else Ho sempre adorato le borse di plexiglass, anche quando non piacevano a nessuno, sarà per questo che colleziono scatole di questo materiale da sempre, di ogni dimensione e forma, aspettando l’ispirazione per trasformarle in qualcosa di diverso The project is very very colorful, and the great thing is that you can use the colors you prefer, perhaps to be combined with a pair of shoes that you have or a dress. Today we use nail polishes! Il progetto di oggi è molto molto colorato, e la cosa bella è che potete usare i colori che preferite, magari per abbinarli ad un paio di scarpe che avete o ad un vestito. To give the bag a final touch I used an old belt very thin, I cut it, I glued in back of the box, leaving the buckle in the front. You may also like:

DIY – Transparent Envelope Bag This project is a bit ‘eccentric I admit, a bit’ out of the ordinary, a little over the top, but every now and then is not bad right? I wanted to try to make a transparent clutch a little color with a quote, shall we? Questo progetto è un po’ eccentrico lo riconosco, un po’ fuori dal comune, un po sopra le righe, ma ogni tanto non è male no? HO voluto provare a fare un clutch trasparente un po colorata e con una quote, che ne dite? Here’s what you need, a transparent document bag, studs, a piece of chain, glue. Ecco cosa vi serve, una busta portadocumenti trasparente, delle borchie, un pezzo di catena, della colla. The first thing to do is locate the studs on the sides, the plastic hole easily and the procedure is quite fast, at this point you need to prepare a button to cover the clip. La prima cosa da fare è posizionare le borchie sui lati, la plastica si buca facilmente e la procedura è piuttosto veloce, a questo punto è necessario preparare un bottone per coprire la clip.
