Kidz Korner - Fall Leaves Garland


With fall right around the corner, now is a great time to get the kiddos in on decorating for the season. Elsie at A Beautiful Mess has the tutorial shown through wonderful pictures. The younger children may need a little help but using a blunt tapestry needle they will be able to join in on the fun.

For the tutorial, simply click on the photo above.

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Upcycled Tote Bag Tutorial

To sew or not to sew.....if you are not into sewing, but you would like to make an upcycled tote bag why not try this no sew tote bag made from a feed bag. Now I call that recycled, repurposed and upcycled to the ultimate. And talk about easy! So if you need a new tote bag to take to the market or shopping and you have that left over dog food bag why not give this a try like Leslie from The Frugal Crafter shows us. :)



Happy Not Sewing!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: School Pencil Bags

I am still thinking about kids going back to school this week. :)  I am sure all of  you with school age kids have been busy getting their school supplies and fighting the people and checkout lanes of the big box stores. That is always sooooooooooo stressful. Why not take a little stress off and make something for your kids school supplies. Since it has been awhile I am not up to par with what kids have on their school supply list, but if pencil bags are still there here is a great tutorial on how to make one. I saw this tutorial from Thermoweb.com that Amy Warner wrote for their blog on making a pencil bag with photo transfer sheets. So if your kiddo needs a new pencil bag why not try this one. 


Happy sewing!

Colleen :)
