Bohemian Infinity Dress… « Needles, Thread and Love I saw this dress as a project in vol. 4 of the Quick Stuff To Sew magazine. It was insanely easy to make and I love it so much! Its so flowy and bohemian… The dress is essentially a circle skirt with two really long straps sewn onto the front. The magazine shows you how to create a ton of different looks… it would be so perfect for traveling. Like this: Like Loading... Make It and Love It: Re-Purposing: Boy's Pants Can you believe it? A boy project. I’ve been trying to think of new things for my sweet boy…..it’s just harder to come up with projects for him. But how about some hip little pants? Complete with belt loops and faux back pockets. And then match it up with a shirt and tie.Why not? Give it a try if you have a little guy. How? : : : Click on images to enlarge. : : : Find an old pair of shorts or pants that have a fun pattern……or keep it plain. Then, using the tutorial here, make a pair of pants to fit your little guy. Next, I attached a button to the center front. Now, you’re going to cut off all of the belt loops from the men’s shorts/pants. Turn under the ends of the loops a 1/4 inch and attach to the pants. Then I cut rectangles from the waist band to create back pockets that were about 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. The I folded under each end a 1/4 inch. Then I folded under the top about a 1/4 inch and positioned them on the back of the pants. And that’s it.

Fleece Dog Bed Tutorial | Erin's Blog - Dog Under My Desk - StumbleUpon Loki got a new bed today and the weather held out for photos, so you all get a new tutorial! Read below to learn how to make this cute fluffy fleece dog bed! I’ve made… four of these now? At least four. You’ll need 1 1/4 yards of fleece. I cut the 26″ square first, then folded in it fourths. (If you buy 1 1/3 yards, you can squeeze out 28″ circles, but not much more than that.) Now, sew the long pieces together on the short side, right sides together, to make once long piece. Now mark the halfway points on both circles. Now take one circle and place it right sides together with the long piece, matching the center seam to the center point. Sew in both directions starting from this center point/seam to 4″ from the other center point. This diagram will help: Sew the other circle in the same manner. Now pin the seams all the way up to the center point, then fold the excess back and pin it in place. Turn it right sides out: Now you’ll need two pillows. Perform some surgery on your pillows. Done!

DIY Guide - draped skirt mandag, 19 september 2011 Her får I den længe ventede DIY guide til at binde en draperet nederdel, som jeg første gang viste i et indlæg fra Kreta. Jeg har brugt et gammelt tørklæde fra H&M, men har I ikke et tørklæde i den stil, kan man købe et langt stykke jersey stof i en stofbutik meget billigt. Mit tørklæde er 2,5 meter langt og 1,5 meter bredt og så har jeg foldet det på midten, så det kun er 75 cm bredt. Hvis I køber et stykke stof der er lidt tykkere, behøver I ikke folde det på midten, bare det ikke er gennemsigtig, of course :) Jeg håber at I kan lide guiden og at den er til at forstå, ellers spørger I bare. Here is a DIY guide on how to tie a draped skirt.
