DIY No Sew Pet Bed

Pet Bed Knotted

I am always looking for fun Fleece projects and I came upon this one video. I have done this cute pet bed  for a cat and will have it up on my etsy shop this weekend hope to. I want to share the video as well encase you would like to make your own.

I made mine for the ones who don't want to do it or can not at this time, I had fun making it for a little cute fur baby.

The material I used are 100% Polyester Fleece and the cotton is Silky Soft Ultra Plush Fiber both are washable and dry-able on low tumble.

Here is how my finished bed turned out, I stuffed it as well, 

The steps are so easy. I cut out 4" square on each corner and cut the strips

Then double tied the top and bottom strips together as knots

I bought a pattern for the top and a solid for the back.

Here is the video for you who would like to make one for your babies :)

Blankets will be next for this coming winter :)

DIY Small Envelope

Paper Envelope

I seen a few crafters that had the cutest envelopes and said I so have to try this for my journal book. I tried with a brown Polk dot paper just to see if it will come out ok. And to my surprise it was ok looking.

I will make more with different pattern paper and embellishments.

First I cut the template out.

Then try and put together.

I think it came out ok for a first time.

Please let me know if you have done these so I can visit your site and get inspired :)

Crafting With Construction Paper into Leaves

Paper Leaves Out Of Construction Paper and Scraps

I have a lot of scrap paper and construction paper and didn't want to sit on it so I went into Pinterest and found a cool project to try. Cut out your paper as leaves and just add them together and then when finish top with a big flower in the  middle. I still will add a little fun to it to make it pop more.

The Papers

For now the final project before adding maybe a little more embellishments. 

Please let me know if you have paper crafts and I will visit as well:)

DIY Washi Tape Cut Outs

Oh My! I must be a late bloomer but I was watching youtube videos and I seen Amy Tangerine do this with her washi tape, inspired  I had to give it a try. Now I can use washi cut outs for my art journals and other craft projects.

Please let me know if you have any other ideas with washi tapes:)

I used watercolor paper I didn't have regular paper.

Here is some washi tapes I used.

The next step is to cut in half or not it depends on what you want to cute out.

Then I picked a few shapes to try out. turn over and draw.

My finished work, I will so have to buy more decorative washi tapes to make more patterns for my projects.

I'll be decorating these more.


I use affiliate programs to help me with my children's stories, and my crafting blog. I will always let you know what I have here.
