A quilt a month: April

Here it is, like I promised! My April Quilt!

Alright, confession! I think I got two of the quilts mixed up in month order haha! For about a month and a half I forgot to post the finished quilt product. (But I honestly did finish one every month)

So technically, THIS is May’s quilt, and May’s quilt is April’s… lol but oh well! I still have one a month :) Enjoy this months er uh next months quilt.

This quilt is one of my favorites! I guess they all are, lol, but this one turned out soooo cute.

It is a custom order rag quilt for a customer’s lil’baby who will be here in August! Ahh! The cuteness is overwhelming 😊

Anyway, let’s cut to the chase and show you some pictures:

You just got a puppy right? Or maybe you are getting ready to buy one? Oh I hope you are! Puppies are so fun!

If you are reading this after you got a wee fur ball, you probably already bought tons of stuff for him or her. A crate, toys, treats, everything the Petco guy told you to get.

But now it’s everywhere, especially the loose treat bags, huh?

Here is a quick solution that looks great in the process.

before and after

Materials:

All you need is a JAR and RUB-ON LETTERS

/

How to make it:

This is simple simple!

Simply follow the instructions on the back of you rub-on letters and voila!

I choose to use the words that described my puppies best when they want a treat. :)

DIY confetti (looks so good you could eat it)

SUPER + GLITTERY + CONFETTI

What is a better combination? Who knows…probably nothing.

DIY confetti

what you need

 

 

  • Scrapbook paper
  • 1” punch
  • Regular hole punch
  • Sack
  • Glue
  • Pen

It sounds like a lot, I know, but this is also a mini tutorial on how to make a cute little coordinating bag :)

DIY FUN 007

Okie doke, so….

DIY FUN 008 DIY FUN 013 DIY FUN 011 DIY FUN 010 To make the confetti, all you need to do is punch a bunch of circles out with your 1” whole punch. Seriously…BAM, done.

Now don’t you just want to get a spoon and eat it!? I mean, it’s glitter and confetti, all rolled into one! How could you not want to take a bite? I mean, is that just me who eats glitter for breakfast? :)

.

Now for storage. You can’t just throw this kind of confetti into a plastic sandwich baggie and hope for the best, you want to store that glittery awesomeness in something, so how about a darling bag?

I got my pink one at HEB actually. 25 cents…what could be better than having the cashier say: “your grand total is one quarter.”

Nothing! That’s what. :)DIY FUN 015

Where that flap lands, (The dark shadow in the pic) cut a straight line across so you are able to stick something all the way through (like a tunnel)

DIY FUN 017

DIY FUN 019

Fold one of the ends up and glue in place (about an inch)

So now only one end should be open, kind of like, well, a bag :)

DIY FUN 021

Punch some little coordinating circles out and glue on the bag to add a little touch of personality.

Finally, add in the confetti and seal the bag with a 1” white circle glued on the open flap that reads: “confetti”
