Felt Holiday Puzzles

Felt Holiday Puzzles

Last year I made Ada this silly little felt snowman puzzle and she went actually bonkers for it. She asked me to make her some more, so I did and decided to post about them. We now have a snowman, Christmas tree, and a gingerbread man. The nice thing about these is that they’re super easy and cheap. I already had all the felt, but if you were buying, it’s like a quarter for a sheet. They were all really fast to make too because I...

Custom Ironing Board

Custom Ironing Board

Hello friends. It’s been pretty much forever since I posted. Sorry. Life seems busy. In any case, I’m happy to finally post a tutorial! Since we moved, I had to get rid of my old  amazing sewing table because our whole house now is the size of my old sewing room. I wanted an ironing board that would be portable (in case I want to iron in front of the tv), small enough to tuck out of the way when not in use, but big enough to...

DIY Abstract Painting

DIY Abstract Painting

Apparently I have a thing for collecting cheap boring paintings of flowers. Both of these canvases are so dull and blah. I wanted something fun and colorful and different, but I didn’t want to spend any money, so I decided to try my hand at painting again. My brother helped me put on the base coats and then he actually painted something different on them, but it was horrible (no offense Connor). So, we painted over it and when he left I...

Fat Quarter Friday: Jewelry Music Box

Fat Quarter Friday: Jewelry Music Box

My grandma gave me this little jewelry music box to me for maybe my 5th or 6th birthday. I love it so much that I’ve kept it for nearly 20 years. As such, it’s a little worse for wear. It’s stained and dirty and I may be a bit old for the carousel motif. I didn’t want to throw it away though, so I decided to give it a happy little makeover! Before  After    Materials: old jewelry box fat quarter felt mod...

DIY Swedish Icon Art

DIY Swedish Icon Art

I decided to paint over my old “wall art” I made awhile ago. It just wasn’t really doing it for me and I wanted something a little bit different. My mother’s side of the family is Swedish, so I thought that it might be fun to do something that showed that. I’m not much of an artist, so I thought I should keep it simple. I mean really simple. So I ended up with some simple and fun Swedish icons. Materials: canvas...

Ombre Triangle Shelves

Ombre Triangle Shelves

I’m really happy with how these little ombre triangle shelves turned out. They’re quite small to actually be very functional shelves, but they make pretty wall art! Brian and I made these for my sister and brother-in-law for Christmas (I know, I’m just getting around to posting this, me=procrastinator). They found out they’re having a baby boy and decided to hang them in the nursery! Yay for babies! Yay for triangles! I...
