There really isn’t anything more gorgeous and luxurious than a leather purse, well in my eyes anyway. But I’m not so keen on the price tag of a store bought number…….so I’ve given it a go making my own. I have ended up using mine for a make up bag but they really could be used for anything and would make a fantastic gift. All up it cost me under $10 to make…..now that beats $500+
I’ve noticed a trend recently of chunky knit cushions……..and I love them. So I’ve decided to give it a go making one. After mulling over whether to knit or crochet….I decided on crocheting. I love the look of crochet and I found it achieved the chunky open knit I was after a lot more than knitting. As it turns out making my own chunky crochet cushion cover was super easy and cost a fraction of the price of a store bought one….easy and cheap are two of my favorite things…so win win on this project.
This gift wrapping hack is super easy. I came up with the idea of using an old scarf as ribbon for gift wrapping by accident when I ran out of ribbon recently and I ended up using an old silk scarf instead. Here’s how I did it.
