Felt Doll Diaper Tutorial

Did any of you get a new doll at your house yesterday for Christmas? Did you know you can make baby doll diapers to fit just about any doll. They are quick and easy and your kids will love being able to quickly change their babies diaper.

Have you seen the ridiculous prices on doll diapers at the store? If you have a little girl surely you have, and the ones that are sticky and supposedly reusable? Not so much, the adhvesive doesnt even last as long as real diapers. Besides that there is pretty much one color, white with a tiny bit of print. If you make your own you are saving a ton of money,  you can make them to fit any doll, and in wide variety of colors and even patterns using inexspensive felt squares from the craft store.  Your little girl will love having her own stack of cute and colorful diapers to reuse over and over, they are also washable so they will last a long time as well.

How to make a cloth diaper for baby dolls, No Sew pattern perfect gift for little girls #DollDiaper, #NoSewDollDiaper, #Patern, #diaperSupplies Needed:

  • 9×12 Felt pieces
  • velcro
  • scissors
  • needle and thread or sewing machine

Fold your felt square in half longways.
Measure and mark 1 “ down on the ends, and 5 ¼” in on the bottom from each edge- make sure you do this on the folded side.
Using a ruler mark a line from the side marks and bottom center marks creating a triangle on each corner, cut away these small triangles.
Cut 2”off the front upper corners, and 1 “ off the back.
Use this first diaper as a template to trace and cut all your other diapers.
Hot glue or sew a small piece of velcro centered  ½” from the edge on front flap. Attach the other piece of velcro onto back flap 1” in as well.
This diaper fits a standard Cabbage Patch, if you are using it for a different brand of doll you can very easily adjust it to fit, after  cutting off the  triangles wrap it around your doll, mark where the velcro would fit best and cut your lengths there instead.
Felt is usually only 4/$1 so you can easily make a dozen of these in various colors in about half an hour, they make a great Christmas gift for any little girl  (or boy) in your life.How to make a cloth diaper for baby dolls, No Sew pattern perfect gift for little girls #DollDiaper, #NoSewDollDiaper,  #Patern,   #diaper

Santa Belly Pillow, Made from Bandannas!

This is such a great project that uses very little effort and is thrifty!  There is no need to go to the fabric store and stand in line forever cutting fabric, because all you need is some bandannas from the craft store, some black ribbon, a regular pillow and a sewing machine!

santa belly pillow, thrifty, quick, Holiday decorations, #Christmas, #holidays, #santa, #santabelly, #santacraft, #christmascraft, #thriftycraft, #thriftycraftidea, #easycraft

Begin by cutting your black ribbon and the length of your bandannas and pin it half way, in the middle of one side of one bandanna.

Now turn the bandannas with the “nice side” together and pin around.  Now sew all except for one long side.

Once you have it sewn, you will be ready to stick in your pillow, you need to turn it right side out. These red bandannas that I got from Hobby Lobby were so big that I was able to stick a standard size pillow in.  It is so big, and cooshy!

Once it is stuffed, you can sew that bottom edge shut.  You will want to fold down the edge so that it is flat.

Now you will need to sew on the belt buckle.  I used some jingle bells that I had, but that will be hard to lay on if you are going to use this pillow for more then decoration.  I am sure you could find something else pretty or an actual belt buckle for a great look!  You will most likely have to sew this on by hand.

There you have it!  A quick way to add some Christmas cheer to any room!

What child does not like marshmallows-even more- cupcakes!  
Add a movie and you have a fun night with the whole family,
while eating these adorable popcorn cupcakes!

2ndSupplies:
Cake mix
White Frosting
Cupcake holders
Marshmallows
Paper
Red Marker
Tape
3rdInstructions:
Bake Cup cakes and let cool.
Frost cupcakes once they are cooled.
Apply the marshmallows on the top.
My 7 year old put them on the top-there is no specific way to make them look.
4thNext:
Make the striped muffin cups.
I drew out a pattern like this.
They have them online for free, but I decided to free hand mine.
5thI cut out the pattern and added stripes.  The stripes are 3 lines thick.
Meaning when I ran the marker across to make a stripe, I did so 3 different times to make a wider stripe.
I connected the two sides together with tape, which then formed a cup.
I dropped the cupcake into the cup.
6thALL DONE!

DO NOT PUT IN OVEN TO TOAST THE TOP OF THE MARSHMALLOWS!
Frosting will melt.  I tried this to see what would happen and I had   marshmallows and melted frosting everywhere. ha ha!
You can use a longer lighter and lightly toast the marshmallows, or a blow torch.  I chose to leave them plane.

They made my heart giggle when I saw them the first time.  My daughter and I had so much fun putting them together.
Perfect for a Circus Theme party too!

How to make Homemade Apple Chips, Apple Chips Recipe #Fall, #Apples, #Recipes, #AppleChipsIf you are looking for a crunchy sweet treat that is healthy for you, then you have got to try making your own apple chips.This is also a perfect treat or lunchbox idea for the kiddos. They are yummy, easy to make and so much cheaper than buying them at the store.

Homemade Apple Chips ­

  • 8­10 apples, washed
  • Cinnamon (optional)
  • Food dehydrator (I have a basic Ronco dehydrator)
  • Mandolin slicer (optional but this is how I get my perfect slices and I use it for everything!)

5 easy steps

1. Thinly slice your apples. I leave the skin on mine for a bit of extra crunch but you could also peel them if you wish.
2. Lay the apple slices evenly on the dehydrator trays and sprinkle with cinnamon.
3. Stack the trays and turn the dehydrator on. Allot the chips to sit for 6­8 hours and then rotate the trays from top to bottom.
4. Let sit another 6­8 overs (even overnight works) until they get crisp.
5. Store in an airtight gallon ziploc type bag or airtight mason jar.How to make Homemade Apple Chips, Apple Chips Recipe #Fall, #Apples, #Recipes, #AppleChips

Day at the beach quick tip, Ideas to stay safe, Quick Tips, Hacks

Quick tip… while spending the day in the sand and sun keep your items safe from thieves by hiding them inside of a diaper.  This will also help keep the moisture off your cell phone and keep all your items in a safe place.  Make sure that your family knows you put your items into the diaper so they do not toss it in the trash… but this will help prevent thieves from grabbing your items while you are distracted or sun bathing on a towel.  Let’s face it most people are not looking for dirty diapers rolling around in the sand, but they are looking for wallets, phones and jewelry.
