Embroidery Hoop Pin Cushion

With all three of my children taking up embroidery, I am starting to have quite the collection of embroidery hoops.

Jump Rope DIY

Confession time… So I bought this rope off of Amazon last year, wanting to use it as piping around a pillow. When it came, the rope was HUGE. There was no way this rope was being used for anything. Since that time, the rope has sat in my sewing supplies stash just taking up room. […]

We’re back with another simple DIY project! We’ve been really into the patch trend lately. They’re showing up everywhere from denim jackets to purses.
