Koji DIY Kit, a “Wee Wonderfuls” Project

By Hillary Lang, STC Craft

From the Publisher:

Welcome to the world of Wee Wonderfuls. This kit includes everything you’ll need to make Koji, a fiercely cute spiked softie monster, from Hillary Lang’s new Wee Wonderfuls: 24 Dolls to Sew and Love.

By Sharon Bowers
(Storey Publishing, $14.95, ISBN: 9978-1-60342-548-3)

From the Publisher:

Build a candy fantasy! Sharon Bowers shows you how to use ordinary store-bought candy and cookies as the raw material for a brand-new kind of crafting. Top a sheet cake with a crushed-cookie racetrack, tiny candy cars, and a candy pit crew—and watch the delight on your birthday boy’s face. Set out fudge-striped cookies and peanut butter cups to keep small family members busy making pilgrim hats on Thanksgiving Day. Spend a rainy afternoon with your kids, making a pirate ship complete with little pirates made of licorice and candy corn. You’ll find simple, step-by-step instructions for making dozens of things children love, including spaceships, butterflies, a fairy-tale castle, a dump truck, planes, Egyptian pyramids, aliens, a steam train, Christmas trees, Easter eggs, and much more — all crafted with candy. The sweet possibilities are endless!

By Samantha Cotterill
(Stash Books, $19.95, ISBN: 1607050064)

From the Publisher:

You’ll love these charming felt softies with European flair. Make your own story with “uptown” sophisticates or “down country” folks. Add a brownstone, a cottage, or even a double-decker bus and a London phone booth to give your little people plenty of places to go and things to do!

Green Grocery Bag Challenge

The Green Grocery Bag Challenge is a project to encourage sewists to wrap their holiday gifts in reusable cloth grocery bags, thus reducing the amount of wrapping paper entering the waste stream while simultaneously getting multi-use bags into the hands of consumers. Please include Mother Earth in your holiday plans. Read more here and join us on The Green Grocery Bag Challenge Facebook page where we’ll be posting wrapping ideas, sewing patterns and tips for reducing waste this holiday season.

    Wow! All of those ideas are great! Good job today!

  11. Erin says:

    Woah! I totally made a phone organizer very similar to that one 5 years ago when my husband and I were first married. We lived in the top story of a converted barn so there wasn’t really much space to put furniture against walls due to low slanty ceilings. We were always losing our cell phones and I wanted a place to charge them that we could grab them quickly and NOT have them on the floor. So I made a fabric pouch with two pockets with places for the chargers to fit on the bottom of the pockets and hung it from hooks on the wall next to the door. I wrote our initials in fabric paint on each pocket because at the time we had the same cell phone so it helped us grab the right phone on our way out the door. I had totally forgotten about that!

  12. Seanna Lea says:

    That toy sack is BRILLIANT!!! I was just lamenting today how I love drawstring bags for toy organization, but then the toys inside become “out of sight, out of mind” and don’t get played with very often. This solves that problem, and looks great too!!
