XOXOXO Pillow

How to Make a Pottery Barn Teen Inspired XOXOXO Pillow

Cute pillow, but not for the price! My cost was less than $5.00 including the stuffing and it was completed in an hour, wahoo! Let me show you how to make a Pottery Barn Teen inspired XOXOXO pillow!

XOXOXO Pillow DSCN0523 copy

Materials:

  • 1/4 yd. of black canvas fabric
  • Different colors of felt (I used 4)
  • Polyfil

The finished inspiration piece measures 8″ x 28″. A quarter yard piece of canvas is perfect because it measures 9″ x 60″ total. Cut the canvas into two pieces measuring 9″ x 30″. I got really lucky because the lady who cut the fabric at the store made it perfectly straight so I don’t have to do any trimming!

I drew a pattern for my Xs and Os… I wanted the letters to measure 4″ wide by 6″ tall. I used a scrap piece of paper and drew lines marking the height and width of the letters. I used a compass to draw 1″ circles in the corners of the lines I drew, then used a ruler to connect the circles making the X. For the Os, I used the same process but drew a 2″ diameter circle at the top and bottom. For the center, I drew a 1″ circle and connected them with a straight line. I cut them out and pinned them on the felt, then cut out the felt.

Pin the letters in place on one of the canvas pieces (use a lot so the felt doesn’t shift while sewing them onto the canvas!) and stitch with contrasting thread. I decided to use white.

Place the two pieces of canvas right sides together and sew three sides, leaving one short end open.

Press the seams and press a 1/2″ hem in the open end. Pull the polyfil apart in small pieces when stuffing – this gives a smooth, lump-free fill.

Pin the open end together and stitch closed.

Protect Your Countertops with These Awesome Hot Pads!

Make a Fabric Hot Pad Using Bird Seed

This isn’t your typical hot pad… This one has channels sewn into the fabric that are filled with birdseed! Yep, its true – birdseed! It works wonderfully to protect your countertops or table from hot pans or dishes. I made several of these hot pads a few years ago using regular cotton quilting fabric. They held up really well until one of the cats got a hold of it. Actually, I was looking for an excuse to make new ones to match my updated decor – thanks, kitties! (For the record, the hot pads lasted about 12 years!) This is a super-easy and super-cheap project… Basic sewing skills are all that is needed! These can be made in any size and they would especially make great gifts! I made a small one for a teapot or mug, also! So let me show you how to make a hot pad using birdseed…

Make a Hot Pad Using Birdseed DSCN0478 copy

Materials:

  • Fabric of your choice (I used cotton duck)
  • Rotary cutter or scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pins
  • Sewing machine & thread
  • Funnel & birdseed

Start by cutting your fabric 1″ larger than the finished size of the hot pad (to allow for a 1/2″ seam allowance on all sides). I wanted mine to be fairly large so I cut two squares at 12″ x 12″, which will give me a hot pad measuring approximately 11″ x 11″. Place the fabric right sides together and sew around three sides. Use a relatively small stitch so the birdseed doesn’t work itself out of the seams!

Clip the corners (so they will lay flat), turn right side out, and press. Press a 1/2″ hem at the opening.

Press a 1/4″ hem at the top of the hot pad.

Make a Hot Pad Using Birdseed DSCN0457

Sew approximately 1-1/4″ “channels” across the fabric.

Using a funnel, fill each channel with birdseed. The channels do not have to be packed tight but they should be full.

Pin each channel closed so the birdseed doesn’t fall out!

How to Make a Mirrored Sunburst Wall Art Piece DSCN0364 copy

This is one of the most inexpensive pieces to create – a few mirrors, spray paint, and bamboo skewers! That’s it!

Materials:

  • 4″ mirror
  • Assorted smaller mirrors
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Spray paint
  • Soda can tab

Alter a Man’s T-shirt with Crochet Detail

How To Alter a Man’s T-shirt

A few months ago, I shared a post on How to “Girl Up” a Man’s T-Shirt” . Today, I want to continue that with a few new ideas! These shirts are so comfy so why not alter them to reflect your individual style? I’ll share how to alter a man’s t-shirt and add a bit of crochet detail to it…

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0317

Materials:

  • T-shirt (mine is a Men’s XL)
  • Scissors
  • Pins

Start by washing and drying the shirt to remove any sizing and to soften it up. Pin around the neck and cut the neckband away. This particular shirt already had a v-neck so I didn’t want to cut the neckline too low…

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0304

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0307

To make a cute front detail, fold the front of the shirt and line up the shoulder seams. Make cuts in a triangle so they get smaller as the cuts go down the front. Open the front and pull the fabric a little to make the cuts “roll” (I’m not sure why it looks green in this pic – its the same shirt!). Use a sort of crochet technique to make a braid down the front, then pin the last loop to the shirt…

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0309

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0310

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0311

I wanted a braid detail at the hip line so I folded the bottom of the shirt up about 5″ and drew a 3/4″ line from the fold. Then I made small cuts across the entire width of the shirt…

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0312

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0313

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0314

I used a crochet hook this time (it went a lot faster) and made the hip detail…

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0315

Use a needle and thread to secure the last loop to the shirt. More detail can be added such as screen printing, stenciling, bling, etc.

Here is another shirt where I added the triangle chain detail to the back…

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again DSCN0318

The possibilities are endless! I’d love to see YOUR ideas!!

I’ve been asked to add a how-to on the crochet detail so here goes:

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again SANY1774

Step One

After making the cuts for the crochet detail, insert the hook under two of the “loops”.

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again SANY1775

Step Two

Pull the loop closest to the hook under the first.

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again SANY1776

Step Three

Pick up the next loop and pull it through the loop already on the hook.

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again SANY1777

Step Four

Continue along until all loops have been worked then secure the last loop to the first loop using a needle and thread!

How to Alter a Man's T-shirt Again SANY1778

This is such an easy technique and can be added to the shirt in a variety of ways. Have any questions about how to alter a man’s t-shirt again? Leave a comment below!




A Recycled Container Makes Great Storage!

Recycle an Ice Cream Container and Make it Pretty

Awhile back, I bought some ice cream that came in a pretty nifty plastic container (it was good, too!). I saved it because I thought I might be able to use it for something. I use sponge brushes all the time and buy them in bulk. I have a ton of them but have no real place to store them. I figured I’d use the ice cream container but “dress it up” a little to match my decor. Today, I’ll share how to recycle a container and make it pretty and useful!

Recycle a Container and Make It Pretty DSCN0300

Materials:

  • Plastic ice cream container
  • Scrapbooking paper
  • Pencil
  • Mod Podge & brush
  • Scissors & craft knife

Throughly wash and dry the container. Mine is oval-shaped with a lid which can be useful for all sorts of things! (The ice cream was good, too!)

Recycle a Container and Make It Pretty DSCN0281I wrapped the paper around the container and drew a line to cut the paper in the shape of the container.

Recycle a Container and Make It Pretty DSCN0283

This particular container has a lip around the top edge so I used blue painter’s tape to secure the paper to the container, then used the craft knife to cut around the edge.

Recycle a Container and Make It Pretty DSCN0286

I laid the piece I just cut on the remaining scrapbooking paper in order to cut a second piece. I cut the second piece slightly shorter so that the paper stopped at the sides of the container.

Recycle a Container and Make It Pretty DSCN0289

Recycle a Container and Make It Pretty DSCN0290

I covered the container with Mod Podge in Matte and positioned the longer first piece on the container, then I smoothed out any wrinkles or bubbles. I applied Mod Podge on the rest of the container and positioned the second piece of paper.

Recycle a Container and Make It Pretty DSCN0292

I wanted to cover the center of the lid, also. The leftover piece of paper just happened to be wide enough for the lid. In order to cut the oval, I positioned the paper on the lid and used my fingernail to score the arc. I folded the paper in half and cut the other arc.

Recycle a Container and Make It Pretty DSCN0294

I coated the lid with Mod Podge and adhered the paper.  Once everything was dry, I coated the entire container with Mod Podge to seal the paper.

Voila! Pretty storage for my brushes!

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth…

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth

Making a custom floor cloth to reflect your style isn’t hard! Its very inexpensive, too, using regular canvas fabric and non-slip rug backing! Let me show you how easy it is to make a canvas floor cloth, then stencil it to give it a bit of style!

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0234 copy

Materials:

  • Canvas fabric
  • Non-slip rug backing
  • Scissors
  • Iron & board
  • Sewing machine
  • Paint & stencils
  • Scotchguard or other water repellant

Cut the canvas into the size desired.  (3/4 of a yard of 60″ wide canvas will make two floor cloths.)

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0223

Press an approximate 1/2″ hem on all four sides. Then fold over 1″ and press again on all four sides.

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0224

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0225

Cut the rug backing slightly smaller than the “hemmed” rectangle.

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0226

Place the rug backing under the hems on the floor cloth. I bought this online by the yard several years ago. I can’t remember why I thought I needed so much…

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0227

Using a long stitch (I used 3.5) stitch the hems down around the entire cloth. Don’t get too close to the edge – the machine foot will stick to the rug backing unless you’re using a Teflon foot!

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0228

Now you have a “blank canvas” – no pun intended! Determine the stencil placement and fill in with paint. I used Martha Stewart Crafts stencil in Arabesque and Martha Stewart Crafts paint in Arrowhead, Beach Glass, and Acorn. (I’ve never been a huge fan of Martha Stewart but I really love the paint!)

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0229

I started with the largest circle, a large dauber, and the Arrowhead paint.

 

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0230

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0232

I used the smaller circle and Beach Glass paint next…

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0233

Then used the Acorn paint with the smaller circle. Let it dry completely and apply a coat of Scotch-Guard or another type of water repellant.

How to Make a Canvas Floor Cloth DSCN0234

Now I’m not sure I really want to wipe my feet on it because it came out so pretty! The same technique can be used to make a larger rug, as well! Have any questions about how to make a canvas floor cloth? Let me know by leaving a comment below!

Make a Recycled Gift Bag Using a Food Box

How to Make a Recycled Gift Bag

My boyfriend, Matt, just graduated from college. I am so proud of him… Not only did he serve our country (he’s retired military) but he graduated Magna Cum Laude, with honors and the whole deal! He has worked so hard and deserves all of the accolades he’s received. From now on, I’ll refer to him as “Mr. Awesome”! I bought a gift for Mr. Awesome – a pair of Mike Holmes safety glasses! Being big fans of “Holmes on Holmes” and “Holmes Inspection” these glasses were necessary to help Make It Right! I needed a really cool gift bag to put them in and since I generally like to reuse things I already have on hand, I’ll show you how  to make a recycled gift bag from an empty food box.

Make a Recycled Gift Bag DSCN0206 copy

Make a Recycled Gift Bag DSCN0207

Materials:

  • Empty food box
  • Scrapbooking paper
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors & hole punch
  • Ribbon & trim

Make a Recycled Gift Bag DSCN0182

Start by cutting the flaps off of the box and securely tape the bottom.

Make a Recycled Gift Bag DSCN0197

Cut the scrap booking paper and wrap the box like a present. Since the paper is usually 12″ wide, two pieces will have to be cut – One to wrap around with the edges at the back (as shown) and another cut at the width of the box to cover everything completely. Make sure the paper is long enough to cover the bottom of the box.

Make a Recycled Gift Bag DSCN0199

Coat the bottom of the box with the glue stick and wrap the bottom like a present adding more glue as needed.

Make a Canvas Cube and Put Your Feet Up!

How to Make a Canvas Cube

I saw a cube similar to this in one of the high-end furniture catalogs… It had a HUGE price tag, too – $249.00! Yikes! I know we as DIYers can do better so I’ll share how to make a canvas cube to match your decor!

I found some really great printed cotton duck fabric at my favorite hobby store. I thought it would be perfect for this project! (It’s “French Stamp” by Premier Prints – in case you wanted to know!)

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0902 CopyMaterials:

  • 1-1/8 yds. Printed Cotton Duck
  • Fleece and Spray Adhesive, or Fusible Fleece
  • Polyester fiberfill (Can be purchased by the box online or at most craft stores – one box will fill two cubes!)
  • Rotary cutter and straight edge
  • Scissors
  • Fabric marker or pencil
  • Sewing machine and thread
  • Scotchguard, if desired

The fabric can be prewashed and dried, if desired.

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0870

Cut two squares measuring 18″ x 18″ and two strips 13″ tall x the width of the fabric. Cut the same pieces out of the fleece. The fleece will add a bit of stability to the fabric…

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0871

I didn’t have any fusible fleece on hand so I used my inexpensive spray adhesive and regular Pellon fleece. (I have Quilt Basting Spray somewhere but I seem to be notorious for putting stuff “where I can find it later”… Usually I never find it!) Spray the fleece with the adhesive and position the fabric on top of it, smoothing it out as you go…

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0874

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0873

Using the sewing machine,  sew one of the strips together, then trim the fleece away from the seam. Topstitch the seams. this will be the side piece.

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0876

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0878

Pin the side piece to one of the 18″ squares starting at the seam in the two pieces and positioning it at the corner. Pin along the straight edge stopping about 1/2″ shy of the corner. Cut a notch in the long piece to make the corner. (I like to fold the piece and cut the notches for the top and bottom at the same time). Continue in this fashion until you get to the “unsewn” ends of the side piece. Fold each end over and cut away the excess. Sew a 1/2″ seam, trim away the fleece from the seam allowance, and topstitch, then finish pinning the side piece to the square. Sew the piece to the square to form half of the cube.

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0880

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0881

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0882

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0883

Sew the other square to the other side of the strip and leave an opening in the bottom to add the fiberfill. Trim the fleece away from the seam allowance, also.

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0884

Now its time for the most “fun” part (by “fun” I mean tedious) but necessary. See my ginormous box of fiberfill??

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0894

In order to avoid lumps, the fiberfill has to be pulled apart in really small pieces. It took me over an hour to stuff the cube but there are no lumps or voids!

Once the cube has been stuffed, sew the opening by hand to close it up.

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0899

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0900

Woo hoo! Here is the finished cube…

Make a Canvas Cube SANY0904

Put your feet up and relax!

You can make a canvas cube for a fraction of the cost of buying one… The cube also makes great extra seating for the kiddos!

 




A Cute Top with Smocked Fabric

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric

Smocked fabric by the yard is very popular… It is so easy to purchase it, make a seam, and voila – a cute little dress or top. The downside is that these fabrics are expensive and sometimes the selection isn’t that great but it really isn’t that hard to create your own! Let me show you how to use elastic thread to make smocked fabric!

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0781 copy

The style of the tops can be very versatile, too! Babydoll or form-fitting with sleeves, straps or just a tube… So simple! A piece of fabric can be smocked and inserted into another top at the neckline, or sides, or wherever!

Supplies:

  • Elastic Thread
  • Cotton Thread to match the fabric
  • 1 yd of Cotton Fabric
  • Sewing Machine
  • Several Empty Bobbins for the machine
  • Scissors

Start by prewashing and drying the fabric to remove any sizing and to shrink the fabric.

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0765

Square up the cut edges by using scissors or a rotary cutter,  or by tearing a small strip off the edge. Determine the top edge of the fabric and make a small hem.

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0766

Hand wind the elastic thread around the bobbin without stretching it. It is helpful to have several bobbins with the elastic thread before beginning to sew. Because of the thickness of the elastic, the bobbins tend to run out very quickly!

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0764

Load the bobbin into the machine as usual and thread the machine with the thread chosen to match or contrast with the fabric…

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0767

Determine the width of the gathers – in other words, if you want them to stop at your waist, hold the fabric up to your body and place a pin where the gathers will stop. Start sewing a straight line. Do not pull the fabric or force the fabric to feed. Let the feed dogs do the work. The elastic thread will stretch and create the gathers.

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0770

If the bobbin runs out, carefully pull the thread and elastic to the wrong side. Start a new row and continue to sew. When the rows are completed, pull all of the thread and elastic tails to the wrong side.

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0772

They can be tied together and sealed with a little bit of Fray Check to keep it from unravelling, them trimmed away.

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0775

Sew multiple rows by stitching to the end of the fabric, turn the fabric and make a few stitches, turn the fabric again and using the foot as a guide, stitch the next row. Continue stitching the rows until the stopping point (pin mark) is reached.

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0776

Sew a seam along the selvedge edges …

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0779

and hem the bottom of the fabric.

 

How to Use Elastic Thread to Make Smocked Fabric SANY0780

Add straps or cute flutter sleeves and there you have it – a cute, easy, inexpensive top!

Give a Dress a Makeover…

How to Give a Dress a Makeover

I love dresses.  Yes, I actually wear them on occasion – even on some of my trips to the home improvement stores to buy lumber, parts, power tools, etc! I really love the Bohemian style dresses made in India with their “flowiness” and bright colors! I have a couple of dresses that I absolutely love but they are a little too revealing for me so I very rarely wear them. It occurred to me one day that I can take the dress, cut off the “revealing” part, and completely make over the dress into something more appropriate for me! Yay! Today, I will share how to give a dress a makeover…

How to Give a Dress a Makeover SANY0676 copy

Materials:

  • Dress
  • T-shirt
  • Scissors & Seam Ripper
  • Serger (or Sewing Machine) & Thread

Here is my dress before…

 

How to Give a Dress a Makeover SANY0668

I love the color and decided to replace the top with a white t-shirt. The dress has an elastic waist and I definitely wanted to keep that. I measured from my shoulder to where I wanted the elastic to sit, them transferred the same measurement to the t-shirt.

 

How to Give a Dress a Makeover SANY0671

I cut the t-shirt apart…

… then removed the top part of the dress.

I pinned the two together and stitched the seam on my serger. If a serger is not available, the seam can be sewn on a regular sewing machine using a stretch stitch.

Voila! A “new” dress that will make me feel cool and a lot less self conscious this summer!
