Make a Purse from a Skirt

Another upcycled project.  Upcycling is one of my favorite things to do.  This time I wanted to make something for me.  And here is what I came up with.  I love it!

Girl's Dress from Fleece Pullover - Tutorial

Here is tonight's project.  This was pretty easy to make.  I made it after work, amidst dinner time, coloring and ... OK, so I skipped cleaning.  But it was totally worth it.  Here is my little fashionista showing off her new dress.  It's upcycled from an old fleece pullover, and could easily be modified.

Wide Coupon Wallet Tutorial

I am a couponer.  Not an extreme couponer, but I have been known to get a pretty good deal from time to time.  I looked everywhere for a coupon holder wide enough to accommodate the ones they give you at the grocery store check out counter. I was very bothered by having folded coupons tucked into my coupon wallet.

Well, I couldn't find one, so I made one.  It's wide enough to fit those coupons that they print at the check-out counter.  AND.... it straps onto the grocery cart!  It has been requested over and over and over again from family and friends.  It has been purchased for friends of friends.  It has been given as gifts.  I'm not sure I can bring myself to make any more.  So, here is the tutorial for all who missed out.

Five Minute Scarves

Pin It

I made these scarves last night and they could not have been easier.  One of my favorite things to do is to find 'old' things that I don't use anymore and upcycle them into something different.

So without further ado, here it is... my first tutorial! (after the jump)

Hello World

So, I came up with the idea that I should join the blogging world.  I craft to preserve my sanity, and I thought this would be a good way to archive some of my favorite things and share them with some of my favorite people.
