personalized grandpa gifts DIY German Glass Glitter Silhouette Nativity personalized housewarming gifts

I first created this DIY Silhouette Nativity in 2012, but still love it in 2018!? It is probably my most favorite Christmas project!? I know so many of you have made your own nativity set too.? Because of the popularity, I’;ve created an ebook that includes all of the nativity templatespersonalized grandpa gifts, the “;O Holy Night”; music sheet banner templates, and detailed instructions –; all in one easy to print package!

The Make Your Own Silhouette Nativity includes all of the templates I used and a few extras.? It also includes the O Holy Night banner with the music background in printable form.? There have been others who have copied this idea, but mine is the original you’;ve seen on Pinterest –; created by me in 2012.

Recently, my wife and I were on vacation in Acadia National Park with our 2-month-old. We wanted a souvenir shirt for her, but of course a) there are no shirts that small for sale and b) she grows too fast to make it worth it. So I hit upon the idea of making a bib from a larger t-shirt.

Hey guys!! I made a bustier from old jeans! I am so excited to share this project because it was so fun to make. So, whatever you do don't throw out those old jeans so fast, upcycle them! Reuse them and make something cool. I made this bustier by utilizing my dress from, a strapless bra and draping.

I’m an artist, and a maker, and a designer, but really, I’m a collector. I can’t pass a thrift store without going in for a quick spin. I’ve got boxes and boxes of vintage fabric scraps, and I also love looking at textile design books for inspiration. Feeling stuck? Leafing through a design book filled with patterns, or digging through your own scrap pile can be a great way to get yourself back up again. Here, I used the design from a scrap of vintage cotton to create a simple pattern using my BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)?and a bit of bias trim. I lined the bag quickly with fusible web and sewed it into a quick change purse. No pins, no measuring, not much fuss at all. Never sewed a zipper? Great! This is an excellent first project. I’ll show you how I made mine.
