John Deere Purse with a John Deere Button

Spring always reminds me of the John Deere crafts so while the husband is getting his John Deere ready for mowing.

Why not make yourself a John Deere Purse with a John Deere Button and some cut off blue jeans.

In reply to a comment earlier from ( Mel ) about having a John Deere button for the tooth fairy pillow.

I did find a picture of the purse I was talking about and it does have a John Deere button on it. And you all know I really would love to have that button in my collection.
I may just have to go on another button hunt! ;-)

John Deere Purse

    Oh my Gosh! If I could only get my hands on more of the pretty little John Deere buttons!

Here is another John Deere Project from the past!

A John Deere Tooth Fairy Pillow, a good craft idea for the little boys!

I always feel like it is harder to come up with craft ideas for the little guys. But this one was a big hit for me.
And hopefully you will enjoy the idea and the little guy will have a John Deere of his own. ;-)

Do you have any little boy craft ideas?

Tonight’s Craft is for kids.

So I was trying to decide on a craft for tonight and thought well I have not had anything for kids in awhile.
So I decided to upload some tooth fairy pillows, they have a pocket to leave the tooth and a little poem for the Tooth Fairy.
When she takes the tooth and reads the poem she in return will leave a gift for the little one. And once again you must notice they both have sewing buttons on them! ;-)


Here is a Valentine craft idea that is a little different.

Just bringing back some Valentine Craft ideas! Enjoy!

Monogrammed Bath Tissue for Valentines Day! 

Someone ask me to do this a few years ago. (Thanks Connie!)

At first I thought NO WAY THAT WILL WORK!

Then I thought what the heck, I’ll give it a try and so here I go……..

First I tried to monogram a roll of my own bath tissue. (with no luck!)

Then the challenge was on, so off to the store I go to purchase a roll of the thickest quilted bath tissue I could find and a new pack of sharp sewing needles.

Back to the house and up to my sewing room.

I put the end of the roll of tissue into my monogram hoop.

I put a new sharp needle in my sewing machine.

Thread up my machine with red thread.

Got my design ready and started to sew my monogram. (I thought oh my, is this really going to work!)

After finishing the monogram I rolled the tissue back up and put it in a clear plastic bag, tied a red bow on it and….SHAZAM!

I had just turned out a pretty roll of monogrammed toilet paper.

I showed it to some of my customers and friends and can not believe the orders I have had for monogrammed bath tissue. ( This craft is not limited to Valentines Day.) :~)

Easy little girl purse idea.

Ok I know I have been a little slow on blogging lately, so tonight I have an easy to make little girl purse idea for you.

The purse is made from the leg of an old pair of blue jeans, the leg was already decorated with the appliqué and embroidered so all I had to do is cut off the leg sew up the bottom, hem the top and I added the rivets to put the ribbon through and I used some of the leftover fabric to make a handle. If you don’t want to do the rivets you could just sew on the ribbons at the top.

Hope this picture will give you some creative ideas.

And as always comments are welcome, it lets me know I have a reason to keep up with this blogging thing.
