Sew a Passport Cover

Just in time for a restorative getaway to a rock-strewn and balmy Mediterranean island, here is a tutorial from Matt at Design*Sponge for a hand-sewn passport cover. This could be made in either leather, or even faux leather….we love hand-sewing for its meditative nature, and with this case you’ll have plenty of time to daydream about fields of wildflowers, picnics of crusty bread, hard cheese, sticky thyme honey, salty olives, and wine, and lazy afternoon snoozes on a soft blanket.

Make a Felt Baby ABC Book!

It is the year of the dragon, so don’t be too surprised to see babies blooming like posies! Claire from Craftzine made this tutorial for a group baby gift — an old-fashioned felt cloth alphabet book. Clair says, “The book is beautiful, hilarious, and put together by friends with all levels of artistic skills. I love the different approaches to each page and that the personality of each contributor is obvious as you flip through the book…The great thing about this project is that you could organize a “mailed baby shower” for a friend who is far away, or at least allow distant friends and family to participate in a baby gift that will be personal and meaningful.

Free Chinese Dragon to Embroider

According to Chinese tradition, the year of the dragon is particularly auspicious for new babies, and Aimee, blogstress and craftster extraordinaire, brings us a free Chinese dragon transfer to embroider. This sly fire-breather would be charming stitched upon a pillowcase, tea towels, or even a draw-string laundry bag!

Sew one with Britex Fabrics’ sports fabric from our 4th floor, and then pack it with all the necessary tools and emergency accruements. Band-Aids, tweezers, stain remover, a flashlight, a cell phone battery, toiletries…..and who knows what else. This would make a swell Father’s Day gift for all the dads in your life.

Owlet – Paula and Billie

Every day is owlet day. Paula made this adorable owlet costume for her daughter Billie’s first Halloween, and then gave a shout-out to Britex special helpers Casey and Abraham. I love Billie’s feathery tufts, calico beak, and button eyes. What a chirpy bouncing baby owl!
