Faux Fur Pillows

All of the big design stores are touting their faux antlers, and faux fur pillows and throws right now.  I’ll pass on the antlers, but I do love the look of a cozy faux fur blanket and or pillow.  Something about it makes the couch extra-inviting.  It beckons you to light the fire, grab a cup and book and snuggle in for the night… and day… and night again.  I never want to leave.

Faux fur anything costs a fortune right […]

Catnip toy – easy DIY

My Mom told me my blog was getting “boring”.  She meant it kindly and frankly I appreciate the truth of it.  I’m getting a bit bored myself.

Today I thought I’d try to make a little fabric bin with handles.
You can use these to store yarn for knitting, or toys that need to be carried up or down stairs – really anything […]

Repurposed denim

A very kind friend stopped by the other night to drop off some old jeans her husband didn’t want anymore.

She called first – people don’t just randomly drop garbage on my front step and hope I can create something – she asked if I wanted them.

Headrest iPad Holder DIY

Last week we were on a road trip up to a friend’s cottage about 2.5 hours away.

The girls are always good in the car and other than the occasional pit-stop for a potty break, they happily entertain themselves by playing or watching their iPads. 

BUT
little did we know that this time […]

Earbud Keychain

This is a small sewing project that takes no time at all, and can be done with any scrap material you have laying around.

I found a pin on Pinterest that has a photo tutorial, but it doesn’t give measurements and there is no link back to a blog for me to give credit to the author.
