This adorable little owl is the perfect sewing project for kids. If your son, or daughter wants to learn how to sew, they’ll have fun learning all the basics when they make this little guy. There’s nothing more rewarding than learning a new skill and seeing your finished project. This free owl sewing pattern is sure to be a winner with your child or student.
Take a look in my closet and you’ll see that I’m a bag person. What can I say. Some people have a lot of shoes and I have a lot of bags. And there’s nothing I like more than a cute bag that has lots of pockets to make it really functional for me to stay organized with stuff for the kids.
Here’s the free pattern for this amazing Coco bag. I’d love to see what fabrics you use on your bag, so be sure to come back and share a link to your finished project.
What I love about mosaic arts and crafts is that they allow you to mix colors, textures and patterns. And when you use mosaic tiles when you sew, it opens up the possibilities for showing-off your favorite colors. It’s also a great way to re-use fabric from one of your favorite outfits, or from a sentimental piece of clothing. Incorporate it into a design for a modern messenger bag and you’ll carry those fond memories with you wherever you go.
I love free stuff, who doesn’t right? And when it’s something that I’ve been looking for anyway, well then that’s just an extra bonus. That’s why I was so excited when I heard about the Free Class being offered by Craftsy.
Free Online Class From Craftsy
This site is one of my favorites and I think that their classes are top notch. For one day only on May 18th, they will be offering a free class to anyone who signs up on their website. On top of this great offer, Craftsy will be “paying it forward” with a $5,000 donation to DonorsChoose.org. So not only do you get a free class, but you get to help them give back. And best of all? It doesn’t cost you a dime!
Take a Free Online Class
I took the Brioche Knitting class with Nancy Marchant and I really enjoyed it. I think that no matter what your skill level, an online class is a great way to learn new skills, improve your technique, get some great tips and meet lots of other creative folks. I highly recommend it. I’m an advanced knitter, but I’ve never taken a class, or participated in a workshop where I didn’t have fun and learn something new.
This tote may be perfect for the farmer’s market, but it’s so pretty that I think it would be great to use every day. I think that any mother would enjoy this tote and could think of a million uses for it. Take it to the park, carry snacks to a soccer game, or use it in the car to keep yourself organized while on the go. The laminated surface makes this an easy clean tote, which of course is a mother’s dream.
This photo tutorial gives you all of the details and walks you through step by step. This would be a wonderful gift to make for Mother’s Day.
