DIY Christmas Gnomes!

We are gearing up for Christmas, and what’s a better project than a Christmas Gnome! We love the new trend of Christmas Gnomes as Seasonal Scene displays in houses, offices, storefronts and more. I personally adore the little critters because they can be customized so easily, and they’re perfect to make with a beginner sewist. We put together this super easy tutorial for beginners on how to create your own Christmas Gnome.

DIY: Halloween Deco Bulbs

I simply love homemade Halloween decorations! Everything Halloween brings me so much joy and knowing something was homemade just makes it all the more enjoyable to me. Putting perishable decor aside, we put together this easy Halloween Decoration DIY that anyone can follow. These simple steps lead to a versatile decor project; we made Bats Flying across a moon and a skull but these could easily be turned into pumpkins, candy apples, classic monsters and anything else you can think of with the right coloured yarn!
 
Let’s get crafting!

DIY Produce Bags

This super easy Produce Bag tutorial is great for beginner sewists and those eco-friendly folks looking to help reduce plastic waste. Produce Bags are great for carrying and washing your fruits and veggies. I know I hate to use a small, one-time plastic bag to just pick up some apples from the produce section, and this way I can gather everything I need, weigh it and not worry about hurting the environment.

DIY: Eco-Minded Grocery Tote with reused plastic pouch!

 
 
In our stores, we see more and more people carrying re-useable cloth bags to take home their shopping.  This is a great way to keep plastics out of the landfill.  With this in mind, we thought we would offer this fun D.I.Y. tutorial to make your own custom shopping tote.  The method is fairly simple and makes a roomy, durable bag.  We have also included instructions for creating an optional pocket made from plastic packaging that you may already have at home.  The pocket is a great place to store coupons or your shopping list!

DIY Baby Bib with Pocket

Back at it again with some wonderful gifts for either your own little one, a niece, grandson or anything in between! The Bib is a staple, but we can improve on an already great design. This Bib has a pocket, and when using Fabricana’s laminated cotton fabric you don’t have to wash after every meal. Simply open the velcro pocket that’s caught all the spilled food, wipe, and reuse!

DIY: Silk Egg Dye

DIY Silk Egg Dye with Blown Out Eggs
 
Here is another fun Easter project to do just in time for Easter Egg Hunting! Whether you celebrate Easter or not, this is a beautiful and easy project to do with friends and family. I also found that this is much less expensive than buying ties for their silk at thrift stores or department stores. With silk ends, cut offs, scraps or small cuts it allows for a beautiful look and an inexpensive craft. With new silks this project will cost between $3-$5 !
