You Can Make Raffia Pom-Poms

  If you love pompoms, and are stuck with one of those donut pompom makers, I'm sure you thought it was impossible to make pompoms with raffia.  But WAIT! (LOL) You can make them with the PattieWack™ Pom-Pom Maker tool.   Grab your Large PattieWack™ Pom-Pom Maker and wind the raffia onto the tool just like you would yarn.  You won't need to use a lot of raffia since it will flair out and create a cute bushy pompom.  I glued mine to corks and used them to re-seal bottles of wine.  Of course, there's always a few uncorked bottles of...

"Dream" in Gold Polka Dots - DIY Pillows

Golden polka dots and a pillow that says "dream".....?  I'm going to say, "Yes, please!" This little vignette of loveliness couldn't be easier to say "Yes" to, because it is a no-sew project that is so simple you'll be putting golden polka dots on everything! The whole thing started when Fairfield came out with this luscious gold lame' metallic style fabric that is webbed on the back so it doesn't fray.  It's called Oly-Fun™ and it really IS fun.

Shrinky Dinky Name Tag/Keychain

Every kid wants to make his backpack special, right?  And what a better way, than to make their very own name tag with shrinky dinky plastic!  My grandson Zane really loved it when I made this one for him.    I started with a sheet of my Matte PattieWack™ Shrink Plastic.  I wrote his name with permanent markers and filled in the spaces with bright primary colors, black polka dots, and black outlines so that it looked like it was straight out of a comic book. Next, I cut around the edges of the design and punched a 1/4" hole...

DIY Triple Tassel Bracelet

  This DIY jewelry project started out with an impulse purchase at Michaels.  I saw the three little arrow charms and just had to have them!  The next step was to decide how to turn them into a cute bracelet, so I went to my yarn stash for inspiration. I grabbed my Mini PattieWack™ Tassel Maker and found yarn that matched the threads that were wound around the arrow charms.  The Mini PattieWack™ Tassel Maker has 5 steps for different sizes of tassels, and I thought it would be fun to make 3 at the same time.  First, you wind...

Breast Cancer Awareness - Bra Purse

I had such a nice surprise this morning!  LeAnne Taylor from NewsOn6 in Tulsa sent me a link from her FaceBook page showing off a little Bra Purse I made for her YEARS ago when I was guesting on the show every week.  She is a breast cancer survivor, and has been such an amazing inspiration to women everywhere she goes.  I miss her, and wish her well. Love ya LeAnne!  XOXO  For old time's sake, here's a segment we did together. Wait for the little "announcement" at the end.... LOL
