This no knit cowl is made with fleece fabric and only requires 3 seams. It makes a great gift for the holidays and has all the warmth and coziness of any hand knitted design. I made mine with a single button closure and it looks terrific with any shirt, sweater, or coat. This is a perfect DIY sewing idea if you are cold and short on time and money, the no knit cowl is very budget friendly.
I have to tell you guys about one of the cutest DIY projects I’ve ever seen. The golden safari animal keychains are both elegant and useful for key chains, to attach to zippers on a purse or just to have sitting around on your dresser. All you need is a little inexpensive pack of animals from Michael’s craft store, some circular hooks, and gold spray paint. You simply screw your circular hooks into the backs of the animals then spray paint them gold, then attach keyrings and the end result is nothing short of amazing. This is the perfect starter for your Etsy shop, people will be lining up to get a few of your golden safari animals.
This little DIY clutch is so cute and functional for anything you wish to put inside it. I made one for my Daughter’s makeup storage and she carries it everywhere. I got the bag closure from Joanne’s Fabrics and the rest required only minimal stitching. Not a lot of fabric is required so you can splash out on a lush looking fabric, I used a poly silk velvet and it was so plush and rich looking but my daughter is able to wash it with a little soap and water from time to time and make it look brand new.
Teachers always get nicer when you give them gifts, and give them a personal monogrammed gift and they get super nice. These DIY personalized soap dispensers are just that kind of classy item that gets a lot of respect and admiration coming from your teacher, my Son’s teacher was beside herself with glee when we gave her a set of 3. This DIY project works best with a laser printer.
I never know which bottle is oil and which bottle is vinegar, so I decided to customize them with their own personal label. I used stick-on letters and craft paint and dried them in the oven to get a good crisp finished look. It was so easy to take myself out of the darkness of confusion, I simply called one V and the other one O. Everyone thinks they came from Pottery Barn, I try to tell them they were born from the inner core of my imagination, but they don’t seem to believe me because they look so doggone good! 😉
