Fabric for Project

I am recommending Duck Cloth fabric, which comes in a variety of colors and patterns at Hobby Lobby. You will need two pieces of fabric: one for the body of the tote bag and a smaller, coordinating piece for the accent border and handles. This is your opportunity to let to let your creativity go to work as mixing and matching fabrics is a part of the process. In other words, have fun with it! You will need:

1/2 yard of fabric for the body of the tote bag

1/3 yard of fabric for the accent border


Whoop! This is going to be a FUN time!!

February Workshop ~ Jewelry Organization

It’s that time again! February workshop is here! We are organizing our jewelry in a fun and super cute {of course} way recycling old materials and adding a little new. Let’s get to it…

We are starting with this…

Excited yet?!?

And finally we are re-purposing these old shutters to display our baubles and bangles…

The circle can be used for stud earrings or push pins for a variety of things.

These babies can be displayed in your room, bathroom, closet….where ever you like! It is so nice to be able to see all my jewelry and easily grab what I want instead of fishing for the right thing only to find it is a tangled mess. That’s not just me, right?! Been there? Done that?
