Fabric Bundles + DIY Projects

Hi friends! I finally found my way out of all the boxes, cleaning and unpacking. We moved!

It's great to be in our first home together, imagining all the memories that will happen here - BUT the moving part…well…that can be over any time now.

You really never realize how much stuff you collect until you have to pack up your life into boxes. Let's just say some boxes were donated or just thrown out. It was kind of freeing!

give with joy had to be packed up and as a result I was able to sell a few extra items that I am now selling. For sale now are NINE fabric scraps that are perfect for many projects!

Here are a few DIY projects with fabric:
Cloth Napkins
Fabric Tape

Happy crafting,

New Series // #HandmadeHomemade2013: Napkins

Ah, finally I'm starting the series that was on my list since we rang in the new year: #HandmadeHomemade2013 (you can follow along on instagram with that hashtag). 

Ever since my return from Cambodia, I had it on my heart to live life more simply and to spend less on convenient products - plus I love that my mom and grandma taught me to stretch a penny! And by stretching a penny I'm talking about my grandma washing, drying and reusing Ziploc bags!

So, here's to a year of exploring ways to make the penny go farther and to making handmade/homemade items and products!

Things on my list include:

  • cloth napkins
  • salsa
  • hummus
  • detergent
  • dish soap 
  • candles
  • cleaning products
  • ketchup 
  • tomato sauce

..... any other suggestions? leave me a comment with an idea!

Last night, I stayed up to sew my cloth napkins. I was inspired by other bloggers that were finding great Etsy shops for their fabric. I ordered mis-matched fabrics and made napkins!

I just have to pick out a neon color thread! It's more fun! 
I folded the hem only once and pinned it down - should have done a double hem to stop the fray,
but you live you learn! 

and sew...it's pretty simple
