Make this: #25

acfa3c7Once Wed shows how to make these pretty hanging handkerchief vases. Laurie has collected handkerchiefs for a while and has tried to figure out a way to incorporate them into a project. Handkerchiefs come in all different patterns and every color under the sun. You could coordinate these vases with any wedding, function, or just to dress up a room. After you’re finished with them they could easily be disassembled and the handkerchiefs and  jars could be used again for their original purpose.

img_7622This next one isn’t sewing, but these cupcakes are so cute I couldn’t pass them up. And who doesn’t love the Cookie Monster? Actually, any ‘critter’ from Sesame Street would make a cute cupcake. Made by Cynthia Rae gives you the instructions right here. Be sure and check out her other tutorials for a little boy’s camping lantern made out of a peanut butter jar and a battery operated votive candle, and her how-to on how to customize coasters.

mickeyhotpads_041Taffy Talk has a tutorial to make a Mickey Mouse hotpad or potholder. Anything Mickey becomes a favorite to me, so I know I’ll be making some of these up for my own kitchen. Another suggestion is to shrink down the pattern and make coasters. Be sure and check on the right side column for links to other tutorials they offer…cute ones!

tagmonster1Here’s another cute one: the Tag Monster. CraftSchmaft gives you the pattern and instructions here. He’s a cute little guy, but just the thought of sewing on all those ribbons makes me shudder. It’s a toy but after putting in all that work I’d probably be sitting the little guy on a shelf…up high away from little fingers or puppy teeth. 

11-400x4001Here’s a neat pin cushion.  It’s a perfect way to separate all your pins and needles by size and color. The great thing is that everything used to make it can be found around your house right now. You can make something functional out of scraps and trash! You can shut the lid when you’re not using it to keep out little fingers. Check out the instructions on Whipup here.

Until next time!
