Embroidered Mesh Word Art for Nursery

Embroidery was one of my very first crafting loves.  So, when I was invited to try out a new product from DMC I jumped at the chance.  This new stitchable mesh is so amazing and gives me a fun new medium to create on! They also have stitchable cork and cork with gold flakes!  I was able to get my hands on some of that too and I can’t wait to play with it. When I was thinking about what…

The Greatest Adventures Await with this Simple Sling Bag Tutorial

This Greatest Adventure fabric just screams summer adventures to me and is available now in retail stores.  And if you want to make a simple Sling Bag of your own, read on.  This…

Pinch me letters and mason jar pot of gold

*I wrote this post last year as a guest post for The Wood Connection blog.  The wood letters and papers were provided to me by The Wood Connection- however the project and opinions are my own. I don’t have many decorations for St.Patrick’s Day but this one makes me super happy.  I love the letters and wood, but the small mason jar pot of gold just might be my favorite.  That or the rainbow order jars of candy. 😉  Here’s…

Scalloped border Doll Quilt

This post originally appeared as a guest post for The Ribbon Retreat.  I was provided the materials but the project and opinions are my own. I think doll quilts are so fun to make.  They are a small canvas where you can try out new techniques or designs without investing a ton of time. And who doesn’t have some teddy bears who could use a lovely place to have a tea party? This scalloped border adds just a bit of…

B is for Button

I love buttons.  I love the colors, textures, shapes and styles.  There is just something about them that makes me happy.  Today, I’m going to show you how to make this easy button monogram. This one was made using a mixture of new and vintage buttons.  I made it for my baby and used buttons collected from her grandmother and great- grandmothers.  I think that makes it pretty special. Are you ready to make your own? Button Monogram Tutorial supplies:fabricletter…

Personalized Teacher Gifts: Coin Purse with Wrap Card by Ameroonie Designs

*This was a guest post I did clear back in May. I just realized that I never actually posted it over here. Even though we’re already back to school, this would be a great idea for a Christmas gift or just a nice mid-year Thank you. And it doesn’t even have to be for a teacher, you could change the text on the card and make it for just about anyone. Teachers definitely don’t get paid enough for all that…

My Craft Channel guest appearance is LIVE!

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to film an episode of My Craft Studio with Kristine McKay.  It was so fun, and makes me feel like a real life star. 😉  You can watch the entire episode here. Actually, if I inspire just one person to bust out their dusty sewing machine, and give it one more try- then I will chalk it up as a success. If you’re here visiting from My Craft Channel- welcome!  I hope…
