Making the World Cuter: Friendly Friday-Sew Can Do

A blog where one woman is on a mission to make the world cuter, one kid, cupcake or crafty thing at a time.

Friendly Friday-Sew Can Do

Today I am excited to introduce to you-Cheryl from Sew Can Do, I featured her Hair-do hats a while back-they are too funny, and would make the perfect gift for the little baldy baby girl you know-she is actually doing a giveaway for one on her blog right now, so after you are done getting to know Cheryl and all her cuteness, be sure to stop on over and enter!
(and don't forget to enter the giveaway here too!)
Take it away Cheryl!

Hi Everybody! I'm thrilled to be blog swapping with Tiffany today. I'm a huge fan of her blog and just love all the great stuff she's always sharing.

Here's a little info on me: I'm Cheryl from Sew Can Do. I'm a mom of 2 boys, aged 7 & 4 and a little girl, 6 months.
I also co-own an eco-friendly kid's store, Sweet Peas & Little Sprouts.
My blog is the place I share tutorials, fun projects, my own creations & our homeschooling adventures. I love making kid-friendly things that are fun, cute and easy on the budget (aka cheap).
Less than 2 years ago I could barely sew and hadn't made anything creative since around age 11, so I'm living proof that you don't need tons of free time, money or years of experience to make your own stuff.
Meeting other craft lovers through the blogging world has truly jump started my passion for crafting & now I can't stop!

Here are a few projects & tutorials I hope you'll enjoy:

Felt Doctor's Kit




Hairdo Hats




Honeymoon Bag




Baby Figure Skates




How To Hack A Baby Dress & Little Owl Dress Pattern





DIY Tootsie Roll Hearts




Today I thought I'd share a really fun & easy craft for the kids : Treasure Stones. Who doesn't like digging for treasure?

1 cup used coffee grounds
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/4 cup sand
3/4 cup water
Stuff to dig up (toys, faux jewels, coins, etc.)

Mix dry ingredients, then add water 1/4 cup at a time until a dough-like consistency.




Form into balls and make a hole. Insert a treasure and add a little more stone mix to close hole.




Put on cookie sheet. Dry 2-3 days or, if impatient (like me), put in oven on 150 degrees for 15-20 min.




Once hard, stones are ready to be cracked open by your little treasure seekers using chisels, hammers or other digging gear.




Eureka - We've found a diamond (and don't I wish it were real)!




I've always got projects in the works & I'm currently having a giveaway for one of my Hairdo Hats, so please come by Sew Can Do & check out what's new. Thanks so much for having me Tiffany!!
