Interesting magazine I just read

crafts, creative, culture, DIY, fun, patterns, sewing

Have you ever heard of the magazine called “Mary Jane’s Farm” ? Me neither!!!! My friend brought it over the other day to show me some sewing ideas in it.

It’s a cool organic lifestyle magazine that has articles on how to make interesting dishes to eat, how to guide on crafty ideas and home and garden help.

I liked the article in the volume 10 #5 edition on recycling a vintage wool coat into a cute little heirloom teddy bear! AND it also gives you a link to a website to be able to donate your creations to children in homeless shelters, hospitals and to paramedics who keep them on hand and give them children in need of emergency comfort! Excellent idea!

Here is the site if you are crafty and want to donate handmade dolls and stuffed animals.

Check it out!

Working on Cushion covers for an old camper for a friend. Then back to my sewing patterns and other projects.

I do want to start some fun unique handbags soon. I have a bunch of really nice leather handles and I am ready to make something with using them.  I will post when done!

Also please send all your friends and family that are pet lovers to my Zazzle page! Got to make some sales so I can donate my proceeds to Muttville!!!

A woman in Michigan has an organization called Little Dresses for Africa.

She makes dresses out of pillow cases. Simple to make and such a great gift for a little girl to receive a new dress!

There is a pattern on her site so you can make dresses to contribute!
