Kick off school vacation with a summery coloring page to pass the kids’ now-lazy days. This doodle prints perfectly on a plain letter sized piece of paper. OR, print the mirror image onto soft inkjet transfer paper like this. Then iron it onto a white or light colored tee and let your little one color it in with fabric markers. They will be so proud of their wearable masterpiece! It would also be a great project for a summer birthday or pool party!

Glow Stick Lanterns

After seeing some of these on Pinterest, Boo and I bought some Fourth of July glow sticks and broke into them early. We cut off the ends and dumped the contents in, and shook the jar to coat the sides. (It’s non-toxic.)

An instant glow stick lantern:

We mixed the red, white and blue together and it made a pink/purple-y color. Monday night I think we’ll make separate lanterns for each color!

Update:  I’ve heard from several readers that adding water to the jar helps to keep the glow!  I’ll be doing that next time!

I "Heart" Tie Dye

I love mixing bright tie-dye fabrics into the clothes I make…..so when Fave Crafts sent me a Tulip tie-dye kit to review I was psyched! I used two of the packets to make about 4 yards of “heart” tie-dye fabric.

I only used 2 colors for this batch: black and teal. It covered A LOT of fabric.

First, I soaked the fabric yardage in hot water with about 1/2 cup of salt (I was out of soda ash). I folded it in half and then in half again so it was 4 layers…..and laid it on a plastic drop cloth.

Then I traced a “half-heart” template using my disappearing ink pen onto a few of the edges.

I bunched up the fabric following along the line I drew…..

…..and secured with a rubber band. I repeated this in several other places.

I used one-third packet of each dye and mixed with hot water into these 6 oz squirt bottles.

I covered the heart shapes first…..

…..ten randomly covered the rest of the fabric, turning it over and covering the bottom side as well.

Then I folded up the plastic drop cloth around the fabric and let it sit overnight.

Opening it up it has little heart shapes throughout….perfect to cut up into sleeves and skirts for the dresses I like to make! Or just a knit shirt:

Sewing on Paper II

I love how easy Dana’s quilted notecard tutorial is. Yesterday I needed a card for a belated wedding present and used a bunch of white fabric scraps to sew this one up really quick:
