Sore neck? The last thing you need is a complicated sewing project. The solution? This quick and easy wrap filled with rice and lavender. Hot or cold, its calming scent will bring relief to your neck and shoulders. Make several to give away, but keep one for yourself and remember to take time to relax.

I was looking for an appropriate post for Earth Day, and then Jenelle over at TrashN2Tees told me about these little bags she makes out of t-shirt sleeves. Super idea! I pulled a pretty purple sleeve out of my stash of deconstructed t-shirts and 20 minutes later I had this cute little pouch!
With just a few straight lines of stitches you can make this perfect gift for yourself, friends, and family. This is a great project for beginning sewists.
If you would like a quick project for your campers to sew, try making these easy backpack bags. Have your fabric and cording cut, walking foot on the machine, and lots of helpers. These can be made with success by even the youngest camper with a little help from an adult.

It didn’t take me long to find a bunch of awesome tutorials and projects – and here are my favorites!
My campers love dogs. What could be better than their own dog pillows, to sleep with and to hold their pj’s? I used bright, leftover fabrics in all different colors, old buttons and my collection of colored zippers. They were constant companions all camp long!
