Homemade bookmarks

I cut my homemade paper up the other day into bookmarks and tags.


Now I'm just saving up more paper scraps to make another batch of paper. I've got some  confetti and flower petals saved to use on the next batch. I'm excited! 

More pics soon! 

T-shirt dog bones

Last week the members of the heroes of kindness met to make upcycled dog bone toys. I showed the group how I cut the t-shirts up into one long piece. (Directions on my blog)

Then we began braiding. After the meeting, I volunteered (what was I thinking!?) to cut up the remainder sleeves and tops and bring them back next week.

In the meantime, I was given a huge stack of t-shirts to make into more toys. I've been cutting T-shirts like crazy. I did figure out that if I used my rotary cutter that things went much faster.

I had a friend come over last week and help cut them up and stretch them.



I found a new way to knot them and it's much easier than braiding them.


I can't wait to show them to the group this week. 

Blessing bags completed.

The first batch of blessing bags have been completed. Here are the last of them. Next challenge is to make 25 more in a Christmas...
