Make it Monday: Duvet Cover

I thought it would be fun to share some of the craft projects I’ve been cataloging away for a rainy day so you can make them too.  So, to start, here’s a great (read: SIMPLE) tutorial with some sewing to make a duvet cover that is actually in pattern you like from Design*Sponge.

A Sewing How-to to Brighten Your Day!

Like Molly over at Purl Bee, I can’t wait for Spring to arrive. I am so sick of slushy snow, grey days, and cold temperatures!  That’s why when I saw her tutorial for making these super cute napkins with the little rick rack scalloping on the edges, I knew I had to go to fabric.com and order some of Amy Butlers fabrics to whip up some of these super easy napkins and I had to share the tutorial!

Aren’t these just the most darling barrettes you’ve ever seen?  It makes me want to be a kid again, just so I can get away with wearing them!  I came across this great tutorial on Purl Bee with all of the step-by-step directions and photos you’ll need to whip them up for all of your Valentines.  Happy Crafting!

Cold Weather Crafting

I love this DIY pinecone garland from Twig & Thistle.  As kids, my sisters and I loved to craft with things we picked up in the woods and had we thought of this idea, I’m sure our house would have been well strung with the fallings of pine trees!  Click here for the directions and more pictures.  I’ll be back from a couple days of letterpressing tomorrow to start sharing great homemade holiday gifts.

Oooohhh la la

Swoon alert!!!  I am totally in love with these handcrafted little pumpkins from Danielle of the Thompson Family Blog.  I whipped up a bunch this summer and have been meaning to share the pictures and just haven’t gotten around to Photoshopping them. I’m in Buffalo letterpressing today and tomorrow, but will be back with chef of the week on Thursday.  Until then, happy crafting!
