Felt: Simple Bowl

Sometimes you find there are so many things on your desk and often you are not too sure where and when to keep them cause from time to time you need it.

B-line has shared with us a tutorial on the making of felt bowl and I think it will be pretty good organiser for your desk or even as toy basket~

What you need are:
Good color combination of felt cloths
Sewing machine

Personally from my experience, if you want to make a small version for tiny things like earrings, you can always sew it rather than machine it~ anyway, happy trying~

Recycle: Luggage Tag

Today we going to discuss how to make a recycle travel tag/luggage tag from recycle card holder.

Sometime when we purchase certain products, we tend to get a simple two sided card holder and normally we dunno what to do with it. I bet most of us will have more than 2 cards in our wallet, so what can we do with the 2 empty pocket? Well here is a good suggestion, especially if you going for travel.

Let's look at the tutorial here.

What you need to prepare are:
  1. Card holder which to be re-purpose
  2. Paper, images from magazine, cloth (yeah, you can use cloth too)
  3. Glue
  4. ribbon or string
  5. sew machine

Felt: Needle Book

At all times when i do my craft, I always have the needles every where. I know this is not a good practice but I cant help. Finally I make up my mind to make myself a needle book and resolve the issue. Now my needles have a home :)

Make a needle book is not a huge project. It can be as simple as making a name card holder. The main differences are, you need to add on few more felt pieces in between to make it a book~

Get yourself ready with:
*Felt for cover
*Matching button
*Coordinating felt for pages
*Matching thread
*Sewing machine
*Additional felt for embellishing cover
*Fabric glue for embellishments (optional)

Let's look at this felt tutorial prepared by Little Bird Secrets.
