I like to keep a stash of these colour changing cups! They come in handy for any occasion. I have customized them to give for birthday gifts and camping trips.
Personalized Water Bottle
Such a simple gift idea, just add the teachers name to a water bottle with vinyl! I gave these ones out to the male teachers last year. I love how the Gloss black vinyl looks on the Matte Black bottle, I think it is the perfect masculine look.
Want to see some upcycle magic? See how I upcycled an old shirt into three new items. I loved the fabric and details of this shirt, but not the fit. I never wore it but didn’t want to get rid of it because I loved the colour and design so much. I started cutting and made three items from it that now get lots of use!
When you love the colour and fabric of a clothing item but not the fit, upcycling is the answer!
reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original.
Here is what I made from this ONE shirt:
I used the bottom hem of the shirt to make scrunchies. I was able to make 2 scrunchies from the hem of this one shirt. I love the trim detail and used that as the outside edge of the scrunchie.

This is one of my favourite Cricut tips! There are many times I am making a project and don’t have the right vinyl colour on hand. My solution is to make a stencil and paint the design on! I will show you how to turn any SVG into a stencil in Cricut Design Space. It is so easy!
Upload your SVG and place on your canvas. Now you will place a rectangle over top of your SVG, making sure to fully cover the SVG.
Next select both the rectangle and SVG and click slice. Slice is located in “actions”.
Now remove the cut out piece of your design and the original SVG from your canvas. You are left with a stencil ready to be cut out!
Here is a sewing tutorial for these sweet bunny backpacks I made for my nephews. It is just a simple drawstring backpack, but the bunny ears and tail turn it into the cutest little Easter backpack!
They are a perfect gift bag for Easter goodies. Fill it with Easter goodies, books, and gifts for the perfect Easter Gift for the littles in your life.
2 x 14 inch by 16 inch rectangles of main fabric (I used white canvas)
4 x ear pieces ( 2 lining and 2 main fabric ) SEE PATTERN DOWNLOAD AT BOTTOM OF THIS POST
2 x 3 inch by 3 inch square in main fabric for drawstring loops
yarn to make pom pom or ready made pom pom
rope or cord for drawstring
NOTE: I used cotton canvas fabric to make these. My favourite canvas fabric is painters drop cloths! I buy the natural drop cloths like this one from Canadian Tire and bleach them. You end up with lots of great white canvas material perfect for sewing!
1. Cut out all of your fabric pieces.
2. Sew the ear pieces right sides together. Turn right side out and top stitch leaving the bottom unsewn. Fold the sides towards the centre, pin in place and than baste in place.
3. Fold top of bag over twice leaving room for your drawstring cord to fit through. Pin ears in place and stitch along bottom of the fold. This will be the front piece of your backpack.
4. Take your back fabric piece and fold over twice and stitch along bottom of fold to create drawstring casing. Sew on the pom pom tail.
5. Now you will sew the drawstring loops. Fold 3 x 3 inch squares in half and sew. Turn right side out. Pin in place at bottom sides of bag.
6. Put back of bag and front of back right sides together and sew sides and bottom of bag together. Turn right way out.
7. Insert your drawstring cord through one loop and up through the drawstring and down through the other loop. Repeat in other direction going through other side of drawstring casing at the top. Tie knots in the ends of your drawstring.
