DIY Anthropologie-inspired Hairbows

These hairbows are easy, sweet, and a great way to use up fabric scraps! I saw this bow on Anthro: It's cute, but it is 7" wide and 5" tall.  Pretty big bow.  I wanted to make a few last minute bows to slip into Charlotte's Easter Basket - ...

Psychadelic Pillowcase Dress

So someone clicked the "Suggest a DIY" button(which I was thrilled about!) and asked for a pillowcase dress tutorial.  I have to admit, I'm not crazy about pillowcase dresses.  In fact, I'd never made one{gasp!} - I know.  It's like a staple ...

I know I haven't exactly been in the St. Patty's spirit - so Monday Charlotte and I made this little tambourine to help us celebrate!  It's super easy to make, but I would recommend it only for kids 2 1/2ish and up...even with Charlotte it was a ...

I’m the Map! – DIY Dora Map

This isn't really a tutorial - it's an example.  But it's pretty self-explanatory.  You can make one just from looking at the pictures.  I know you can.  SO - Saturday Charlotte and I took Ryan to the airport to fly to California.  I started ...

Sheepishly Fun – kid’s craft

Yesterday Charlotte had a friend over and we made these little sheep. They're pretty goofy looking, but they were fun to make and the girls love the fluffiness factor. Here's what you'll need to make your own: a plastic egg black ...

Strawberry Shortclip

I really love making little hairclips.  Especially out of felt.  Charlotte has one for every season.  Two of the clips I've made have been from tutorials on the Purl Bee:  flower barrettes and heart barrettes. I really love their method of ...

Simple Spring Scarf

Sewing with Jersey knit is almost as easy as sewing with felt.  You don't have to finish the edges and it drapes beautifully.  It makes the perfect spring scarf. If you buy fabric that is 64 inches wide, you won't even have to piece it. ...
