DIY Can Holder; Can Holder making tutorial

I made can holders using cooler bag.  I, sometimes, more honestly often, forget cooler bags when I go to shopping groceries, and I ended up having many grocery cooler bags at home. Because can holders made by kind of wet suit fabric (?) it is flexible for beer bottles and soft drink cans. But the can holders which made by cooler bag materials not flexible like wet suit fabric, so it should be cut in correct size for cans.

For the first one was too small in size for can holder because the size reduced from sewing of a bit thick cooling material.  I've done applique of C.O.K.E to can holder fabric which took me a few hours, oh well the first one has been binned, and I lost for desire to try further on the same day.

DIY Christmas Pincushions (Ornaments); Christmas Pincushion making tutorial

Sewing in December is all about Christmas!  made Christmas pincushions (ornaments), easy, so easy! Sew or glue green felt leave and red beads on top of square pincushion, that's it. I spent more time to think how I can express red shiny fruits, you can use red colored Pompom, but I want to add some shiny bits to it, so I came to conclusion to use nail polish. Red nail polish to beads once, and then dry, and 2nd coat and then dry, and finish with top coat. Highly recommend to process this first, because you will need time for beads to be dried.  If you add strings to pincushions, which can be Christmas ornaments to decorate Christmas tree. It can be pincushion for sewing, and also handmade baubles :)  I did not add strings when I made them, silly me, and I just put them between branches of mini Christmas tree.  Hope you all have a very merry Christmas.  For tutorial, please click below video, hope you enjoy.

 Christmas is a week away! Happy merry Christmas~! We started thinking about Christmas presents from beginning of December and even before December. Good excuses for us to go shopping, yay, and also we put our time and effort to make Christmas ornaments or something meaningful for presents.  I made 3 Rudolf red nosed reindeer pens which would be good for presents to whom I can express my appreciation or to my dear family, and my dear friends.   As you see in the picture attached, different materials used for face, horns, eyes and nose; details are below: For face and ears, cotton fabric, and felt used For horns, felt, dried seed pods, and dried branches used. For nose and eyes, felt and plastic eyes used. The same method with different materials made me think it was fun to do, and I was interested to see how they turned out. I only made 3 brothers and sisters of reindeer, but in the way, many sisters and brothers of reindeer can be made. Shall we make~ For tutorial, please click belo
