Just in time for Mother’s Day, here’s how to make your own cupcake bouquet.
Turn Star Wars sheets into this cute dress. Devon got the sheet from Target, but it would be even better if you had a vintage Star Wars sheet in good condition. (Unlikely, I know.)
She also makes a good point about sewing with sheets:
This whole project has made me realize that, while sometimes lower quality and a little Scarlett O’Hara, sheets are a completely viable option for sewing material. They are basically huge hunks of quilting weight woven fabric that cost less than fabric by the yard. And it’s not just ridiculous themed kids sheets. There are tons of gorgeous vintage sheets listed on Etsy that would make beautiful dresses and other garments.
Check out this free Red Fox Phone Cozy Pattern. This would be a quick and easy crochet project, and a great gift. Fits Droid, iPhone, and iPod, among others.
If you’re going to keep your cat indoors, the best thing you can do is not let him/her know about the outdoors for as long as possible. Once a cat gets it into its head that it wants to go outside, you have a battle on your hands.
So I’m intrigued by this post on building an Outdoor Tunnel For Indoor Cats. Julia found a cat door that was made for windows, so she built a tunnel that runs along the fence of her garden and opens into a cage that sits under her lilac bush. Lucky cats!
Looks like they enjoy it, too.
Here’s a tutorial on how to make these Painted Butterfly Shoes. I got to make me some of these!
If the space between your bed and wall is narrow, consider putting in a wall-mounted nightstand, like this one from Little Green Notebook. The nightstand is made out of corbels, pine boards, screws, and paint. Click on the link to learn how she did it.
You get 12 towels in a roll. They are machine washable and will sit in a paper towel holder.
But for $52 a roll, you’d better be using a lot of paper towels to make this save you money. Actually, I find that overpriced for glorified kitchen rags, but I love the idea.
Anything that makes knitting easier to store is okay in my book. Here are three DIY knitting organization ideas:
The yarn sack: a zippered pouch with a hole on the front to thread the yarn through. Keep all the yarn together and don’t worry about it unravelling.
A yarn basket with an insert that holds both the knitting needles and the yarn.
