DIY Arm Chair Remote Control Holder Organizer

Are you a huge movie buff and always lose the remotes? My husband is. I decided to make a remote control and magazine/newspaper holder organizer to drape over the side of couch. The long end can tuck under the seat cushion to hold it in. Hoping my partner is happy with it and I no longer have a hard time to search for the remote somewhere else!

Mermaid Tail Blanket

Several weeks ago, a few of my friends showed me a photo they found online of a mermaid blanket. The fin is a pocket for the feet, and the top is a blanket that can be wrapped around the legs. This is so adorable and playful way to wrap up and stay warm for both kids and adults.

DIY Gift Idea: Fabric Heart Bookmark

Cold weather and short days make for a great time to snuggle on the couch with a book and settle in for a cozy afternoon of reading. A handmade fabric heart bookmark is simple and great to pair with a book as a gift for someone who loves to read! You can also fill the little hearts with dried lavender and enjoy a truly relaxing read surrounded with the scent of lavender.

DIY Gift Idea: Scented Heating Eye Mask

Michael Miller Funfair fabric

When traveling or simply at the end of a crazy workday, a soothing eye mask is just the thing to relax your worries away.

 

Similar to scented heating pad, filled it with rice, herbs and relaxing essential oils, this DIY eye mask can be warmed by microwave oven. The eye mask uses very little fabric, so if you have scrap fabric around it would be perfect for this project. You probably have all or most of the items already on hand. This eye mask took me about 30 minutes to complete.
