  • Note * Click on any of my images for a larger picture

Making the Fabric Pompoms : :

1. Place the pompom in the center of the fabric scrap 2. Fold the edges of the fabric up around the pompom 3. Wrap the floss around the fabric right above the pompom 4. Knot thread ends together well, trim, and trim the fabric ends even Continue making your Fabric Pompoms until you have the amount you need. Fabric Pompoms Details : :

I’m adding mine to my Fabric Lover’s Apron, any item will use these same instructions.

1. Layout your design 2. Place the Fabric Pompom onto the item 3. Using a needle threaded with floss and knotted at one end, insert the needle at one side of the pompom pulling up through the back of the fabric item 4. Pull thread all the way through until it catches the knot 5. Insert the needle on the other side of the pompom, pulling back though the fabric so the floss is holding the pompom tightly in place 6. Knot well, close to the fabric, and trim away excess floss Continue until all of your Fabric Pompoms are attached. Voila! You’re finished!  Variation ideas : : You can reverse how you attach them so only the Fabric Pompom ball is showing for a less funky look. You can add them to a pillow this way or attach these just as you would purchased pompom fringe. Here is an example of that on a pillow of mine from Pier1. I hope you enjoy this tutorial!!! This Fabric Pompom detail is something I’ll certainly be adding to the edges of many of my own handmades!

Little Red Riding Baby Boots Pattern Tutorial

The free pattern today is a sweet little pair of boots. Because every baby needs some boots. This style is simple and clean and could easily work for a baby boy or girl.I just love boots on babies especially young babies because they stay on better when there is something wrapped around the ankle.

They are soft and comfy with a strap and snap closure.

The button is just for looks but you know I love a button 🙂
It includes 0-3m 3-6m and 6-12m

Cut out your pieces. You will need 4 soles (2 reversed so you have a right and left foot) I used pleather for the outside sole since I think it holds up a little better. Then 4 toe pieces two outer and two lining, 4 Heel pieces two outer two lining, and 4 straps 2 for each shoe.

Start with the straps. Sew two right side together along the sides and curve. Then turn right side out and top stitch. Repeat with both straps.

Next for the toe pieces. Sew one lining and one outer piece right sides together along the grey dotted line. Clip the corners and the curve.

Turn it right side out and top stitch. Repeat with both toe pieces so you have two.

Next for the heels place the strap down near the top of the curved edge and have the raw sides together. Then place the lining right sides together, sew along the sides and top.

Clip the corners and curve then turn the heel right side out. You want two heel pieces like this but you want them to be reversed so the straps are opposite each other.

Then pin the heel in place to the soles (which should be wrong sides together) Sew the heel in place.

Then add the toe piece to the front. Sew in place. Clip all the curves on the sole.

Then turn the boot right side out and add a snap to the strap and side of the boot. Sew on a button for decoration and you are good to go.

Now you have some adorable little boots to keep those little toes warm.

Hope you like this tutorial.

Love birds – Acrylics Painting on Canvas

Love birds – Acrylics Painting on Canvas:

Required Materials :

  • 3-4 different colours of paint – Red, Yellow, Black  & White
  • Canvas
  • Circular pouncers
  • Hanging supplies
  • Tray to hold the paint

I used round flat tip sponge brushes(pouncers) for the background.. I was after bokeh affect of a sunset scene..
Start with white in the center of the sun and add yellow, and then eventually red.. try to blend the colors so that they wont appear like patches..

You can see the pouncer brush beside the painting, used different size brushes randomly..
The main colors used in this are yellow,red, white, and black.. Basically add black and white to your colors to make it dark and lighter..
For the stroke, you just dab the pouncer in the paint(Acrylics) and put it on the canvas, and rotate it so that you get a perfect round.. Keep repeating until you get the desired background…

…plan was to use the buttons you see in the bowl, on the painting. but changed at the end and settled with just a silhouette of a tree and birds..

This is how the background looked before adding the silhouette…

Finished version – After adding a simple silhouette of a tree with love birds.. it gave a real dimension to the background.. Just an illustration done in adobe to see how would the painting look on a wall…

DIY: Homemade Vertical Garden

The materials are very basic, it’s a matter of making the list and going to a hardware store or a warehouse where tools and construction materials are obtained. The most important thing is to have on hand:

A couple of plastic bottles, all the same size. I thought the 2-liter ones were perfect.

  • Plants that are easy to care for, depending on the climate of your city.
  • Plastic noose, because that of natural fibers deteriorates when in contact with water.
  • Flat metal washers. The size varies according to the thickness of the rope.
  • Scalpel, scissors and a permanent marker.
  • Screwdriver and pliers (just in case).

We removed the labels from the bottles and cleaned them. It is not necessary to waste time removing the remaining glue because we can cut that area further.

We mark a point on each side of the bottle where we will pass the rope, so they must be aligned (parallel) so that there is no inclination.

Open the holes with the tip of the screwdriver, just in the place that we mark the point, drilling in a straight line the plastic to the other side.

When the holes are ready for the rope, with the marker, we delineate the space that we are going to cut where we will plant our plant. And we cut very carefully. We can make a small cut with the scalpel to insert the tip of the scissors and cut more easily.

With all the cuts made, we measure the space in which we are going to hang our future garden, to know the length of the rope. We begin to insert the rope, fixing the height we want with knots, always with a washer between the bottle and the knot to avoid falls.

I made my garden of 4 levels or “bottles” and chose a neon rope that contrasts with the spots in the leaves of the plant that I chose, commonly called Potos or Photos. I left about 40 cm. Between each bottle because this bush grows and its leaves hang.

When all bottles are moored and secured, we plant our bushes with the soil moist to make it easier to handle. It’s going to be a bit heavy, so it’s good to have someone close to help you hang your new, and spectacular, vertical garden in place.

This is for me the first of 4 “green stairs” I want to make to put on a whole wall of my patio. I love how it looks, and I feel very proud because I thought I needed an expert to achieve it, and I love the touch of the recovered bottles. How do you think it was?

I worked in my yard, so after sweeping the soil off the ground, we mopped up with a bit of Fabulous Fruit Passion to freshen up, even more the atmosphere.

Types of Cloth Bag Patterns

1. Cloth Bag Patterns

Cloth bags are great for storing small items, especially if they have a drawstring closure. You can make them out of any fabric you want, but I recommend using cotton or linen fabrics. If you use a heavier fabric, you may need to add some weight to the bottom of the bag to keep it from flopping over.

2. Drawstring Bags

Drawstring bags are similar to regular cloth bags except that they have a drawstring at the top instead of a zipper. These types of bags are great for storing smaller items, like keys, coins, and jewelry.

3. Handbag Pattern

This pattern is perfect for making a handbag! You can use any type of fabric you want, but my favorite is canvas. You can find free printable patterns online, or you can buy a pattern book.

4. Tote Bag Pattern

Totes are great for carrying groceries, school supplies, and other things around the house. You can make these bags out of any type of fabric you choose, but I recommend using canvas or denim.

5. Zipper Bags

Zipper bags are great for storing larger items, like books, magazines, and clothes. You can make these out of any type of material you want, but I prefer using nylon or polyester.

6. Fabric Flower Bags

Flower bags are great for holding flowers. You can make these from any type of fabric you like, but I recommend using a lightweight fabric.

7. Fabric Flower Pots

These flower pots are great for growing herbs indoors. You can make these pots out of any type of plastic or ceramic material you want, but my favorites are terracotta and clay.

DIY: Lanterns with autumn leaves create

Lanterns with autumn leaves create a magic atmosphere not only in the evening. Call your children or grandchildren to get along with them made you. Made lanterns with your own hands you will later recall the time spent together whenever light a candle.

To work you will need:

– Color paper
– Green cardboard
– Transparent yellow paper
– pencil
– scissors
– glue
– Jars
– Leaves of different trees, which will meet for a walk

1. For the manufacture of simple ordinary flashlights need glass jars of different shapes and sizes, which should be well washed and dried. On coloured paper pattern or with the help of this tree leaf draw sheet form in two sizes.

Cut out them. Cut the leaves pasted on the bank. Another flashlight is made from a sheet of solid cardboard the size of 12h41 cm. Pencil-lane divided into four rectangles the size of 12×10 cm, one will see at the end of a seam for bonding the candlestick. On one rectangle draw sheet (sheet a pattern of living). We cut it so as you can see in the photo – a sheet skeleton consisting of veins. When the sheet is cut, smear “skeleton” of glue … and seal the entire rectangle yellow transparent paper on the inside. On the sheet of paper, draw coloured transparent outlines various contact collected leaves and draw them gold or silver paint. On the upper and lower edge of the solid stick the strips of coloured cardboard. When the paint is dry, glue the sheet into a cylinder. It will turn the flashlight, which can be inserted with a candle jar. Very nice these lanterns look at the window from the street, set between the panes.Source

Homemade small sewing basket

Today a boss and a little tutorial to make a cute little stitching bag, inspired by the scrap booking tote bags, which you will be able to see page 78 of my last book, Workshops, and sewing corners.

To make it, you need:
– of matching cotton,
– of interlining to stiffen and reinforce the small pockets
– of Vlieseline X50 or H630 (a little fleece and Thermo coll ante on one side) to give a holding to the basket.
– the bias (or bias) associated with the selected tissues.

Here are the templates of the different parts: pdf file to print the sewing margins are not included Parts A and A “bis”: long side of the basket where the handle is (to be cut 4 times in the fabric, interlining Colleton e) Parts B and B “bis”: small side of the basket (cut 4 times in the fabric, 2 times in the interlining ….é ). Exhibit C: backplane (2 times cut in the fabric, interlining 1 time in …..é ). And the sizes of the small pockets (sewing margins are not included)

Pocket d: large pocket of part A (to be cut once in the fabric and once in the interlining) Pocket e: small pocket of part A (to be cut once in the fabric and once in the interlining) Pocket f: medium pocket of the piece Abis (to be cut once in the fabric and once in the interlining) Pocket g: left pocket of B (to be cut once in the fabric and once in the interlining) Pocket H: Right B pocket (to be cut 1 time in the fabric and 1 time in the interlining) Pocket i:  left pocket (to be cut once in the fabric and once in the interlining) Pocket j: pocket (To be cut 1 time in the fabric and 1 time in the interlining) Step 1: Prepare the 4 sides of the baskets and the bottom of the basket ■ Draw and cut each piece in the outer fabric and inside the fabric by adding The margins of seams.

■ Cut parts A, B and C in the fleece fabric without seam allowance and attach each piece of fleece to the corresponding piece of the outer fabric. Wait about ten minutes before handling them again.

■ Sewing the handles of the parts A: Place the outer part An on the inner part A, right side up and sew the opening on the right stitch (place the fleece over you, redraw the hole on the fleece).

Using a chisel or wire cutter, slit the inside of the opening and crunch the ends.

Pass the outer fabric through the hole in the opening, position the pieces face-to-face and stitch the round of the opening.

Finally, bend the handle between the 2 markers. You get this:

■ Prepare sides B : place each inner piece on each outer piece, place against the place and assemble the top edge.

Turn over, place iron and stitch on place 0.5cm from an edge.

Step 2: Prepare the pockets.

■ For pockets, choose to border the edge that remains open, or make a simple hem if the fabric is thick enough, or double with another fabric.

Think about covering the fine fabrics so that the pockets have the hold and can contain the material that you will put in it.

■ Attach the pockets to the sides of the basket.

You can divide one of the large pockets of the sides An or Abis, by sewing straight lines that will make separations for your pencils, rulers etc.

We obtain the 4 sides thus, and the bottom:

■ Mounting the basket:

Scuff the sides and bottom. Assemble the sides together, then sew the bottom of the basket.

And return to the place:

So here is a small storage basket, to divert according to your desires (for children’s felts and pencils, makeup products in the bathroom etc), a gift idea more for Christmas approaching;)
