I love whales, though I have never seen one in my life. I love reading, too. Thus, why not combine both whales and reading together and create a whale bookmark? I am using felt fabric for my whale because felt is easy to work with. Now don’t worry about the templates because here you will make your own felt templates.

Needle felting is a fun and easy craft project that requires little cleanup and minimal equipment. It can be used to create large and elaborate projects, or small home decorations. This tiny jack-o-lantern is a great beginner’s project.

Nothing is more comfy in hot weather than something that feels like you aren’t wearing it at all. Nudity without the embarrassment of exposure—that’s what this tunic-style shirt feels like.
And it was SO easy to make. You make ONE cut. You sew TWO seams. Finish edges, sew in the elastic shirred waist (this isn’t hard, but does take about as long as the rest of the shirt-making combined), and you have a new, fun, flattering top!
Start with the right fabric. I bought this as a remnant, so I don’t know exactly what it is. I’m guessing it’s a rayon challis. You’ll want a fabric that is lightweight, drapes well and isn’t too crisp or thick.

This little mini wreath is a perfect desk accessory to brighten up your office through those dark winter months. Its small size is great for bookshelves, bulletin boards, or anywhere else you need a little color. Don’t have the sweet treats cartridge or a cricut machine? Find some floral paper punches you love and create your own version!
You need the following tools and supplies to create this wreath:
Cut the flowers using the Sweet Treats cartridge at the following sizes: Flower 1 and 5 at 2″ and Flowers 2,3 and 4 at 1.5″. For Flower 1, punch two circles per flower at .75″ and 1″ with circle punches. For Flower 2, cut the centers from the cartridge at 1.5″. For Flower 3, punch a circle at .75″. For Flower 4, cut the center from the cartridge at 1.5″. For Flower 5, cut the center from the cartridge at 2″ and punch a circle at 1″. Run the flower centers through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss. Put all of the flowers together and adhere to the wire wreath form with hot glue.
This wreath was my first attempt at using the Cricut paper flowers. I am thrilled with the results and now am a little obsessed with the process. So many variations and color ways. The possibilities are endless! By the way, my mother has displayed it amongst her pressed glass bowls on her sideboard. Perfect!

As a kid, I’d have a huge ear-to-ear grin on my face while munching on a stick of cotton candy. There was something so irresistible about the deliciously fluffy, sweet and sticky candy clouds on a stick. I wanted to make a pair of earrings that captured the essence of cotton candy and after a bit of brainstorming, I finally came up with an idea.
