Project: Small Crocheted Bowl Pattern

You may remember me mentioning that I acquired a new crafting desk from IKEA the other day. I won’t be posting photos of it til it’s 100% completed and adorable, but in the process of getting it to that point I’m finding I need more storage baskets and bowls than I’d realized. Rather than buy even more than I already have, I thought I’d take a stab at making them myself! Continue reading Small Crocheted Bowl

No Sew Braided Headband

Project: No Sew Braided Headband

Let me preface this post by saying this is one of the easiest headbands you will ever make. The other easiest is in the Tips!

Soon (hopefully very soon!) I’ll be able to put away my adorable winter hat and sport some even cuter headbands in weather that doesn’t freeze my face off. In anticipation of such, I’m on a headband-making-spree. In addition to the reversible headbands that require time, patience and a sewing machine (post on those to come!), I’m making these really fun braided headbands in every color that require only a few minutes and no sewing at all!

Cozy Catnip Kitty Pillow!

Project: Cozy Catnip Kitty Pillow

My cats, Lucky & Mabel, have a few select places they like to sleep: on top of the hamper, on top the chest, on top of clean laundry I just laid out, on top of any project I’m currently working on/my laptop, and in their little kitty bed. It’s a couple years old now and pretty much beat up and hideous. I decided it was time for a new one, one that was pretty to look at and laced with catnip to make them happy!

5 Step T-Shirt Tote

I spy with my little eye… one kitty who wants that yarn!

Project: 5 Step T-Shirt Tote

I love working with found materials just as much as I love buying them. I may get an overwhelming rush when I walk in to Hobby Lobby (honestly, who of us doesn’t?), but when I find something that costs nothing or next to nothing that I can re-purpose in a project I’m just as thrilled. This project is the latter, using one upcycled t-shirt and very little time!
