Country Living Crafts
Thank you to all of you who sent me emails letting me know that my comment section wasn't working. I missed hearing from you and I'm glad that everything is working now. Let me know if there is anymore glitches and thank you for the kind comments on the new blog look. The change has been similar to redecorating a room and I've been having a lot of fun with it!
I love the Country Living website. They have a wonderful crafts and simple projects section. All of the pictures featured today are things you can make from their website, starting with this pretty bag (above)...
and moving to a simple yet fun and decorative pincushion. They have directions for each item and most items are very simple to complete.
I think this curtain tie-back made from buttons is so pretty. Wouldn't this look lovely in a bedroom?
This doily vase is made using a clear glass vase with doily wrapped around it and stitched down in a few strategic places. The possibilities for this are endless. Think of all the colors of doilies and all the vase shapes.
There is not a seamstress out in the blogosphere that doesn't have scrap fabric and buttons. What a fun and colorful way to make napkin holders.
This project is one of my favorites. A simple pair of flats, some satin ribbon and a glue gun. It doesn't get much easier than that. Be sure to check out the other craft ideas and let me know what you create!
