Quick & Dapper Shirt Collar Dog Collar

Easter is just around the corner, and I think even dogs should look dapper for the occasion.  I wanted to dress my dog up, without putting him in a full on Easter Bunny costume (although I did consider it.)  The Shirt Collar Dog Collar is an easy way to make your dog look fancy without too much to do.

“In the spring – I take all the scraps and thread that come from my serger and put them outside along with used dryer sheets and lint and bits of yarn – there are many colourful bird nests in my neigbourhood.” – Susan M. from Gatineau, Canada.

Sew a Chapstick Holder for Your Keychain

During the winter, my skin and lips are both so dry.  I hate having to take off my gloves to dig around in my purse (drying out my hand more) to find my chapstick.  The easy to make key chain allows me to easily and quickly find my chapstick saving both my skin and my lips.  Make your own and never have to find your chapstick again…unless you lose your keys.

DIY Baby Gifts

This month baby showers are on my mind big time. I have a new niece on the way and many friends with babies due in early spring. I’ve been a little disappointed in the baby shower gift registries because the items on those lists always seem so boring and impersonal. So, I got to thinking, what if I made some of my own baby gifts to add to those ordinary practical baby must haves – diapers, bottles, onesies, etc. Here are some really cute ideas I found to inspire my baby shower presents.

 

For those of you  who  are handy and skilled with pallets, this DIY Pallet Moon Cradle is a real treasure. I would love to build my own nursery around a cradle like this one.

Lens Cap Holder

Sew a Lens Cap Holder

Did you get a new camera over the holiday, or are you already a photography enthusiast?  If so, you may have experienced the problem I constantly have: losing your lens cap.  Lens caps are great.  They keep your expensive lens from getting scratched when you’re not using your camera, but they are so easy to lose.  Yes, a quick google search will reveal countless products you can buy to solve this problem, but I don’t want to spend money and chances are after a season of gift giving you don’t either.  If you’re a crafter, you probably already have all of the materials you need.  If not, you’ll use these materials in many other craft projects, so it is well worth the money.
