Saving Scuffed Shoes

We have more shoes around our house that look like the before picture above than I would like to admit too. Black leather shoes are required wearing for school uniforms, and my daughter goes through them like water. Now I have a solution! What an ingenious idea. Thank you She Wears Flowers for the solution. I can't wait to get started salvaging shoes. You can too, here is the link. [link]


Zip-it Coin Purse

Oh me, Oh my a zipper and a ribbon. Yeap, that's what Craft Passion used to make these coin purses. So clever, so smart. Reading through the tutorial, I still am not sure I have how it's done. You know you want to take a look, here is the link. [link]


Soda Can Purse

RaraAvis shared this gem on Craftster. I love the idea. I am not sure about the staples, I think they would snag your clothing. Using the same concept, I am thinking glueing them together on a substrate or joining them on the backside with something similar to soldering or even taping. [link]


Braided Rag Rug Tutorial

The Homestead Weaver Studio shares a tutorial for a historical craft making rugs from strips of rags. I love the look of this one in the image. I am wondering how it would do with strips of plastic grocery bags? [link]

Garden "Stakes"

I love this idea. I found the image on Pinterest, but couldn't track back to the creator. I have tried a ton of different marking ideas in my garden, none lasted the entire season. These just might do it! I am thinking of trying this idea on bricks and then bury then half way into the earth - so many options, my mind is swimming.

Button Bowl #2

I found this version on Pinterest. I followed the link to Tays Rock but I am unable to tell the original post. Tays Rock states the bowl is held together with wire but upon close inspection, it appears to be sewn.

Tote Bag Tutorial Round-Up

I’ll admit it, I have a few weaknesses and tote bags happen to be one of them. I have totes inside of totes, I have free totes, store bought totes, crafted totes and sewn totes. I have designated totes for bible study and meetings and kids stuff – I seem to have a definite affliction when it comes to totes. So, to enable my weakness a bit further, here is a round-up of free tote patterns.
