Crochet Bikini Top with Fringe

I want to say this project is the perfect beginner project, so if you can’t crochet it may the one to make you learn. This looks great and is perfect for lounging around in your bathing suit.  I made this one because I’ve seen a bunch of crochet bikini tops in stores and absolutely loved each…

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…
