Hi friends! I’m back from the beach and honoring the transition back to daily life by taking things slow, doing lots of house cleaning and catching up on things that didn’t get done while I was gone.
I did so much reading and knitting during our travels I feel like I have a bit of my crafty mojo back, which is great.
We’ll be back to regular blogging really soon (probably tomorrow). Hope you’re all having a great summer so far.
I have always wanted to try ice dyeing, and this tutorial from Our Unschooling Journey makes it look super easy. All you need is T-shirts, powdered dye and ice. How cool is that?
Have an old outdoor umbrella stand lying around? With a trip to the hardware store and a little time you can make a cool outdoor side table like this one from Dazzle While Frazzled. (And if you have the old umbrella frame, you can take off the fabric and use the frame to hang bird feeders. Two crafts in one!)
Sometimes the details take a simple little project and make it a thousand times cooler. So it is with the polka dot embroidered bag from Sum of Their Stories. At first glance it looks just like a simple bag, but she stitched running stitch and other little embellishments on it that make it that much cuter. It’s a great tutorial for sewing a tote bag, too, even if you don’t embellish the fabric.
