All of the extra time spent at home on the weekends has given me lots of time to craft with the kids. They have started playing the game Among Us so I came up with this plushie pattern for them. Made out of felt, this is an easy sewing project for kids. My oldest two who are 10 & 12 made it by themselves. However, even younger kids can make this easily with a little help! My 6 year old cut out the pieces and operated the foot pedal while I guided the sewing.
I have included a free printable pattern and instructions so you can make them at home!
We are cleaning our trailer and packing it up for our first camping trip of the season. I recently bought a wood burner and wanted to make a cutting board for the camper. These little bamboo cutting boards from the Dollar Tree are the perfect size for camping. I also picked up a bamboo spatula to customize for the camper.
For the cutting board, I used my HAPPY CAMPER cut file. I printed off the png clipart file and used graphite paper to transfer the design onto the cutting board. For the spatula I just sketched the roasting marshmallows with pencil and then traced over with the wood burner.
I am new to wood burning but have had fun playing with it. I bought this basic Walnut Hollow wood burner from Michaels. It comes with a few different tips.
I can’t wait to try it out while we are camping this weekend! These would make great gifts for your friends and family.
Do you have a wood burner? What are your favourite projects to use it for?
Its almost the end of the school year for my kids and all of their activities are wrapping up. Time to start getting the teacher gifts made! I decided to make our piano and violin teacher a tote bag. A tote bag is a practical gift and really who doesn’t love a cute tote? I have included the cut file in this post as a free download for you so you can make one too!
I made a simple tote bag out of some white canvas I had in my fabric stash, but a pre-made tote bag works just as well. This is such a quick and easy project, prefect for last minute gifts. I simply cut the heat transfer vinyl with my Cricut machine and ironed it on. This design would look great on mugs and t-shirts too. I included the PNG and PDF files as well so you could even print off the PDF and frame it if you prefer.
