Faking the Look of Grain Sack Fabric for DIY Lavender Sachets

I’ve had the same one for years, made from silky satin with just the perfect amount of weight for my eyes. Making my own version was never on my crafting to-do list until Kate DiNatale Vintage gifted me with a bag full of vintage scarves that were too blemished to sell. They had minor tears or stains…making them perfect candidates for repurposing.Read more ›

Tumble Dryer Balls from Wool Yarn

If you’re anything like me, then you may be looking for green tips, Earth friendly products, or whatever you can find to build a Green Life.

So, I decided to try my hand at making some dryer balls or tumble dryer balls using wool yarn I found at the thrift store.
