Cricut Access Greeting Card Cut Outs

Being new to using Cricut, I know there’s a lot of different directions I can go with it.  Lately I’ve been trying to make my own cards.  I have three examples, they are similar.  One cut out piece with an insert.  I’m trying to master this before adding additional cuts. I love the idea of…

Red Heart Loop-it Blanket

After the success of my first loop thread experience, using loops and threads yarn to make a scarf, I thought I’d give it another go. This time I’m trying Red Heart Loop-it, which is more of a fleecy sort of feel. The loops and threads that I used for the scarf had a traditional yarn…

Simple Fabric Headband

Simple sewing projects are always rewarding.  I have a large amount of scraps and really wanted to make something, so headbands here we are!  This is a project that you start and finish in one sitting. There’s an amazing tutorial for this I will link below, it’s the same thing except a lot more detail…

Shrink Plastic Pins

I found some shrink plastic at the dollar store the other day and with pins being fairly popular now it’s seemed like a fun way to create.  I kept my designs pretty basic, but a good artist could have a lot of fun with this.  Even kids can make designs, as long as parents handle the baking…

A Simple Sleep Mask

I’m always looking for quick sewing projects, especially when I need a break from something larger or more complex. I thought a sleep mask would be fun, fast and useful. The nice thing about this process, you can add your own take and although i used a Cricut and Sewing Machine, you can easily use…

My Attempt at Tie Dye

Spring has sprung and it was once again time to go on a camp out with my girl guide unit. We had kids aging from 7 to 12 so it’s a pretty good range. Looking back to when I was 10, I remember tie dying tshirts in my parks program and thought it would be…

Loops and Threads Yarn – Easy Scarf

Spring has sprung and its probably a bad time to start talking about winter wear. However, I can’t resist a good deal and this wool was on sale from $8CAD to $3.97CAD. Time to get prepared for next year. Loops yarn is advertised as easy to work with, no tools are needed. Now I may…

Chainmaille – Scale Bracelet

After make a bunch of scale flowers, I didn’t have a lot of small scales left but I really wanted to try chaining them together as a bracelet. So I laid all the small scales out that had at least two matching colours and tried to create a pattern in a straight row, once that…

Happy Easter!

Nothing screams Easter quite like eggs and to get in the spirit of things I thought at the last minute I’d decorate a few. I saw this project on Cricut Access and thought they looked pretty classy. I had been wanting to try some smaller project and eggs seems like a good test. I chose…

Scalemaille Flowers

I recently bought a chainmaille kit from a friend at work.  She had put together various rings, scales, and instructions for a newbie.  This is something I’ve wanted to try for a while so I was really excited to give this a go. Chainmaille is armour or jewelry made by connecting metal rings. Using pliers the rings…
