How to sew a Monster I got such an amazing positive feedback from many, many people concerning my monsters that I decided to give all my blog readers a little gift: A tutorial to make your own RevoluzZzionary Monster. It’s a simple one and even if you are a beginner you should be able to do it. If you have any questions while you are making the monster – just contact me. And you can make the monster with a very simple sewing machine – you only need a simple stitch and a zigzag stitch. And the cute little monster I made during this tutorial – its name is Ninni :-) – will be drawn by lot (my daughter and I like the RevoluzZza ribbon “lottery” that much that we want to have another “RevoluzZza lottery” :-)). Just leave a comment and on Friday my cute little daughter will draw by lot who will give the little beast a new home.
Perfect Summer Bangle Here's a fun tutorial on how to make a message bangle that's one-of-a-kind, done in the sun, waterproof and weatherproof.

All you'll need for this project is a raw wooden bangle (we got ours from DIYBangles.com), a black paint marker, plastic wrap, and some Inkodye!

shoutingforha One of the young fellows that works for my hubby has a deliciously adorable little boy named Harvey. The Harvster turned one on Thursday and his parents are having a party this afternoon to celebrate the momentous occasion. At the hubby's request, I have been working on a quiet book for the little man. It's a close replica to the one I originally made for my boy's first birthday. The book is made almost entirely of felt.
Shag Pillow *no animals or plants were hurt in the making of this project. *one really stupid person did get hurt in the making of this project, but she would like to mention that even though the needle penetrated...no swear words passed her lips. it's was a modern day miracle. i love how this pillow turned out. i made it in green for two reasons: 1. it's still kind of cold here, and still kind of brown...will be for a little bit longer so i wanted some GREEN and springy looking happiness in my home. 2. it's the only color of jersey i had on hand, and living in the middle of nowhere doesn't let me just jump in the car and go to a store that i can find jersey fabric at (which btw this fabric was found at jo-anns but i would suggest amazon if you can't find what you are looking for, that's where i get a lot of mine when i can't find stuff) now lets get started: cutting: *cut from jersey fabric 19 strips at 1 1/2" each. *from each of the 19 strips cut 15: 4" length rectangles.
25 Cool and Creative MacBook Stickers As much as I hate Apple and their often overpriced hardware, I do admit that their products look beautiful and can be used just like jewelry to make you look better. Heck, one of my friends even put an Apple logo sticker on her Dell laptop! *insert a facepalm image here* However, with more and more people getting Macs these days it’s getting harder to stand out of the crowd. That’s why we collected 25 Cool and Creative MacBook Stickers to make it truly unique. Sayaka’s recycled sculptures Sayaka Kajita Ganz was born in Japan but now she’s living and working in Indiana, USA. She use discarded objects, mainly made in plastic, like kitchen tools, hangers, etc, to create stunning sculptures inspired by animals and nature. She says about her work “It is a way for me to contemplate and remind myself that even if there is conflict right now, there is a way for all the pieces to fit together.”.
Soft Baby Block Tutorial this is the best soft baby block tutorial that i’ve ever seen. i am definitely going to try this project with some scraps. it looks easy enough to tackle in an afternoon. any other beginner sewers out there? i first learned to sew in my 6th grade Home Economics class. a few years ago i bought myself a Singer Precision from Target. it was under $250 and it’s really easy to use. i made Rexford a few blankets (orange & green) last winter, but really haven’t made any baby items since! 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 Read the full how-to after the jump . . .
