DIY Wee Houses: 123 Links: Templates, Tutorials, etc… From Mel Stampz here. Truly amazing round up of an incredibly diverse group of projects from felt to paper to birch bark!


DIY Shoe Sachets or Goodbye to Stinky Shoes. Love this tutorial because I’ve given those really strong horrible smelling plastic ball shaped “sneaker fresheners” as stocking stuffers. These are a good alternative and use cheap baking soda and specific essential oils found everywhere. Tutorial at Small Good Things here: Part I (making simple fabric pouch) Part II (making stuff to go inside).

DIY Vintage/Retro Tulle Trees. Photo on left from Greg’s Alerts for $35 for an 18” tree here. DIY version in white on the right from Craftster.org here with the tutorial here.*Tulle is SO cheap and comes in every color of the rainbow. Lots of tutorials out there for garlands, etc…

DIY No Sew Vintage Teacup Pincushion. So simple. Tutorial from I heart Nap Time here.

DIY Houndstooth Shoes. Tutorial by …love Maegan here. Love how she did the back. I think these are the best looking fabric covered shoe I’ve seen and I would do it in other fabrics. After the public outcry (well, from one person) about the ugliest poster ever posted on Tumblr illustrating the Houndstooth trend here, I feel so vindicated.
