Learn to Make Fabric Coil Bowls

Fabric Coil Bowls

What do you do with old t-shirts, bed sheets or curtains?  If you have some extra fabric and you’re wondering how you can turn it into a great upcycled DIY craft, then these fabric coil bowls are something you’ll want to try.

This easy craft uses strips of fabric to build the bowl, and cord is used to hold it all together.  It is simply a matter of wrapping the cord around the fabric strips to stitch it all together.  For those who enjoy embroidery or sewing, this is a fun way to put your needle skills to use.  I love this DIY idea because it is easy enough for crafters of any skill level.

No Sew Duct Tape Purse

No Sew Purse

This little purse is so cute and I can’t believe that it’s a no-sew project.  All you need are a few supplies and you’re ready to create a coin purse, cell phone holder, or larger clutch.  You can make it whatever size you want.

All it takes to make this purse is a pretty piece of fabric, some duct tape, scissors and a stapler.  Oh, and a small piece of velcro if you’d like to fasten the flap closed.  This short video gives you all the details.

I hope you have fun making this no-sew project.  I may give this a try to make a crayon case for my daughter.  The duct tape would wipe clean so easily!

Creative Ideas to Recycle Old Jeans

recycled jeans
What do you do when your favorite jeans get too worn out for you to wear anymore?  Here are a few ideas for how to recycle and reuse those jeans as bows, shorts, cell phone cases, notebook cases and lots of other cute ideas.
On top of reusing the denim from the jeans, you can also take off pieces of the jeans and create others.  Get creative and think of ways that you can recycle the zipper, buttons and leather labels to make some new and fun clothes or accessories.
This video isn’t a how-to video, but rather a run-through of ideas.  Great for teens and tweens.  It’s a little scattered for me, but still gave me some thoughts and ideas.
