Be Mine Dog Bandanna: DIY

I don’t know about you, but I love dressing my dog up for each season! She’ll tolerate a sweater here and there, but my first priority is to make sure she is comfortable. So a perfect middle ground for us is Bandannas! It adds a fun flare for your pooch, and they’re super easy to make. This Bandanna will fit on any dog collar for easy application (since my dog loves to chew the ties of a bandanna, why not eliminate the ties all together?) This fun tutorial can be used for cats too!

Charmingly Easy Fabric Covered Box D.I.Y.

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE storage. I love putting all my things together in neat little rows and having it look nice and organized. However, I’ve struggled in the past to find a box that both looks nice, and fits my shelves properly.
This D.I.Y. will go over how you can make ANY box beautiful. This is great for storage, or gift giving. I want to waste as little as possible, so if I can create a box that can be used time, and time again for gift giving, all the better. This is a fast and easy project-- and actually doesn't involve sewing!

Keep it Cozy Draft Stopper

If you live in a drafty, old house like I do, you may be looking for an easy and inexpensive fix for your drafty doorways and windows.  If so, you’ve come to the right place!  This tutorial will show you how to make functional and fashionable draft stoppers.  We’ve used a polyurethane-laminated cotton print for the main fabric, so it’s easy to just wipe it clean if it gets dirty.  You may want to use up some left-over fabric from a home-décor project or maybe something from your stash of craft fabrics.

Well, why not learn how to make your own customizable stocking to either decorate or be the perfect wrapping to some fun little gifts.

D.I.Y. Novelty Pillow Case

The pillow case:  It’s something that most of us use every day (or at least every night!)  This pillow case is a great beginner project because there are no curves to stitch and no serger required.  It also makes a great gift.  We have made our pillow case with a very sweet winter theme, but you can customize the theme of your pillow case for its intended recipient:  cupcakes, butterflies, honeybees, sports, motorcycles, teddy bears, Eiffel towers, star, unicorns!  With all of these amazing possibilities, we’d better start sewing!
