Fabulous Finds Friday: Cool Craft Ideas

  • I stumbled upon Craft Pudding this week as I scoured the web for creative crafts to do with all the baby food jars accumulating on my kitchen counter. Besides using them as storage for my own homemade baby food, Craft Pudding has a great tutorial for turning those jars into adorable little pin cushions. And, if you're looking for more ideas, Shelly Hill over at The DIY Mommy offers up 16 creative ways to repurpose all those jars. Thank goodness because my counter was quickly becoming overwhelmed!

  • Okay, these are just too cute! Made by Rae has a fabulously detailed and easy-to-follow tutorial for making these great little dragon slippers. Actually, her site has a number of great patterns and tutorials. I know that I'll be using this one to make bibs soon.

  • And since you've got the sewing machine out, why not whip up this super cute diaper bag. Amber Dusick has a great (free!) tutorial for her Detour diaper bag over at Make Baby I love the big pockets! So handy!

  • Check out this great way to give old shirts new life using a bleach pen. There's some great designs featured over at Show Tell Share. And while you're there, check out the cute tutorial for a taggie turtle.

  • Having recently made my own tutorial for upcycling burlap coffee bean bags, I love this tutorial from Maiden Jane for creating an apron from a coffee bean sack. This lined apron is perfect for either the kitchen or the garage, versatile and durable, and gives new life to a coffee bean bag!
