You’re probably already familiar with Rubyellen of Cakies - most likely it’s because of her beautiful crowns, fantastic taste, or her seriously amazing posts -but, now I’d like to introduce you to another side of her, the creative Green side.
Just feast your eyes on this fabulous project, she fashioned from old fabric scraps and you’ll see what I mean. Pure genius I tell you, the icing on the cake? She even tells us how she did it. Get the details on these recycled scrap necklaces here.
Now, that’s what I call upcycling. Traci, of Amazing Mae, restyled one of her husband’s old 90′s business shirts into a an adorable peasant dress for her daughter. But, her talents certainly don’t stop there, I’m sure you’ll be seeing much more of Traci’s crafts featured here at KSW ~ especially as we prepare our Spring/Easter Craft round-up ~ but Hey ~ don’t wait for us, head on over to Amazing Mae now and tell Traci we said Hello.
Note: Dress based on Simplicity Pattern 5695
Have a restyled or upcycled project of your own? We’d love to check it out. Link to it here in the comments or shoot us an email at email@example.com (pssst, there’s a handy button over there on the side => )
We are so excited to feature Anna’s Kid-Friendly, Earth-Friendly, easy on the pocketbook cardboard doll furniture. We have visions of what we could do with a little contact paper and some craft glue.
You’ll probably recognize Anna from her well known diy cardboard kitchen that is still circulating the blog worlds a year later. If you haven’t seen it, check it out here. Yu can still purchase the plans on her Etsy store and build your very own.
Stay tuned for more from this talented blogger and even a possible interview from Anna herself.
Your purchase from the Etsy store includes plans to build the bed and sew the quilt, create the mattress and the pillow (not pictured), construct the chair, and even a matching table (also not pictured) for all your doll tea parties
Forty-two roads: Doll Furniture and Linens are Finished!
