A couple of weeks ago I shared a sweater and hat I knitted for the Little Lady. (Leaving Thursday for a week long visit šŸ™‚ I wanted a little embellishment for the hat, and I made a flower using the material that I will be using to make her 2 pairs of reversible pants. Although I sewed the flower directly on her hat, you couldRead More →

  I do not normally post on the weekend, but this morning I came across this pattern for a beautiful pair of mittens (which can be found HERE):       and was dying to find out if my local yarn shop carried this yarn/color. (It is Crystal Palace – MiniRead More →

In a blink of an eye, your little fairies can be wearing flowers in their hair. Although these elastic headbands hold just 1 flower, using the same pattern you could easily fill the crown with a bouquet of blooms! Using a purchased elastic headband, scraps of felt, and a few glass seed beads, your wee onesRead More →

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed. The winner can be found HERE. Several weeks ago, when I was wandering the aisles of Etsy, I stumbled upon a new shop that I feel in love with. It was Jupiter's Child. On Facebook, I shared a beautiful Waldorf Inspired Wooden tree. I thought it would lookRead More →

Back when Michelle was in high school, her and a group of her friends decided to have a "formal" girls night out. Most of the girls had boyfriends, but they decided it would be fun to get all dressed up, go to a lovely restaurant, and party WITHOUT boys. And,Read More →

We all have a collection of "basic" things. The "basic" black dress, the "basic" muffin recipe, and the "basic" sock pattern. These "basics" have proven to be dependable, familiar, and most importantly, adaptable. "Basics" can be altered slightly, tweaked and accessorized to create a different look or taste. "Basics" are theRead More →

Here are the Pup Birthday Bandannas promised earlier in the week. BUT these aren’t just for pups. A bandanna is a bandanna whether wrapped around your doggie’s neck or for keeping the hair out your eyes! Truly, the hardest part of making this bandanna is deciding on the size. Here isRead More →

  {Look at how those adorable cheeks are filling in! I’m going back for a visit next week… can barely wait!} A couple of weeks ago I shared a pattern on Facebook that I fell in love with from Never Not Knitting. Then, I did something I very seldom do… I actuallyRead More →

This is a project we tried last summer and was originally post on July 3, 2009 at Nature’s Way Learning. It was a good first attempt and is definitely something I want to re-visit again this summer. This time I will be limiting our colors to only primary colors so they blendRead More →

Because it is often hard to find things to make for older boys, and I know many of you are still looking for ideas for small gifts, I wanted to repost this. Bug loved the movie The Never Ending Story. (Joy of joys, he's now ready to read the book.  The Never Ending Story. I will need to remember to give it to himRead More →

When we made plans to take a trip to visit my son and his wife, I wanted a project that I could work on in the car, and one that wouldn’t be too complicated. I designed this pattern to be attractive but also easy enough that I could knit inRead More →

Believe it or not, there is still time to knit a scarf for a Christmas gift… or, be self indulgent like me  šŸ˜‰ and knit one for yourself to help keep you toasty warm over the winter months. This scarf is an easy pattern to knit, suitable for beginners that know how to knitRead More →

These mittens are easy to knit, suitable for advanced beginners. It is a basic checkerboard pattern, with blocks made up of 4 stitches and rows. It matches our Checkerboard Scarf pattern. They would look lovely made up in soft wools. I, unfortunately, am allergic to wool, so I made mine out ofRead More →

Well, I got my pattern fixed for the Mushroom Business Card Holder. So, if you’d like to make your very own, TOTALLY cool, business card holder, the directions are good to go. Unfortunately, I spent the afternoon fixing the pattern and didn’t get a chance to remake mine. But asRead More →

I got a chance to make Bug a darker vest for his pirate costume (check out the pirate shirt un-pattern here) and took a bunch of pictures along the way. Here is the Dress Up Vest Un-Pattern or you can find it in our Free Patterns Section. I will alsoRead More →

Dress up clothes are played with daily around here. The box that is supposed to contain them is usually dumped all over the library floor in the kids’ attempt to find some magical accessory that must always be at the very bottom of the bucket. Since they love dress up…Read More →

We are calling this the Pirate Shirt UN-PATTERN. I totally winged this pattern and don’t have the normal step-by-step photos you have come to love about WeeFolkArt (although there are still a good handful). There was a lot of just fudging it that went on and fortunately Pirate Shirts areRead More →

Self fringing shawls can be made from cotton or wools. Although I used cotton plaids, solid colors may be used too. This is a no sew project that can be done in under an hour. But be warned… they are easy and fun to make and the materials that are available are soRead More →
