Playful Puppies

7 comments


These little pups will definitely brighten any dog lover’s day. These felt ornaments are a bit less involved than my other felt ornaments, such as the basset hound. I used glue to attach many of the pieces rather than sewing, which makes it a fun craft for kids! I used hot glue, but you can substitute felt glue if you want to make it more kid-friendly. I included two puppy patterns in the template for your crafting pleasure. Have fun making some!

Boxy Petalled Flowers

Leave a comment

I just love the squarish petals of these flowers! If you recall the easy felt roses I made last Christmas, you might agree that rolling and gluing the flower can be a bit cumbersome. (Not to mention burned fingertips!) Today I’ll show you a technique that is a bit faster, and your fingertips will be spared from the wrath of the hot glue. Since these flowers are light (no glue weighing it down), they are great for making brooches or hair clips

Basic Pillow Cover

2 comments


First off, thank you, Peggy, for telling me about this simple way to make a pillow cover. It’s quick and easy (for a sewing project), and you do not have to be very precise with the measurements. I’m telling you, it’s so easy you might get addicted to making them. ;) The great thing about these is that you can easily change the pillow cover with the seasons. I used a fabulous red and white chevron print for Christmas, but I’m envisioning a luscious yellow print for the spring!

Holiday Ribbon Rosette

Leave a comment

This festive rosette is perfect for dressing up gifts in a jar, a ribbon replacement for gift boxes or gift bags, a holiday sweater pin, or even a hair barrette. If you give a jar gift with this magnetic rosette on top, the recipient can reuse the flower as a fridge magnet.

Use whatever color ribbon you like, but I recommend using non-wired, fabric ribbon, such as double-faced satin or grosgrain. Found ribbon you love, but it’s wired? No problem. Simply cut a length of ribbon and take out the wire from either side.

Scandinavian Woven Hearts

Leave a comment

My mother taught me how to make these hearts many years ago. She used to make these out of red and white velvet ribbon, but today I’m making them out of paper. I didn’t know it back then, but these woven hearts are actually native to Scandinavia. These are easy to make and are addictive, so pull out scissors and your favorite paper!
