I cut the fringe and sole out of Suede and the rest of the slipper is made out of recycled leather from an old coat

Place the fringe piece ontop of the toe piece and sew along the top of the rectangle and 1/2″ from that seam. This will create a casing for the elastic

Take the heel  fringe piece lay it right side down, lay the heel piece right side down on top with the edge 3/4″ down from the top of the fringe piece, fold the fringe piece over the raw edge of the heel piece and clip into place, sew along the fringe piece edge and this will create the elastic casing

So sorry i forgot to photograph the heel fringe part so please check out the video to see those instructions

To make things easier you can use some school glue for the next two parts or clips as to not puncture the leather

line up the centre of the heel piece with the centre of the  back of the sole, manipulate the leather to curve around the sole, sew along that edge at 1/4″ seam allowance


place the toe portion on lining up the centre of the toe piece at the top of the sole, make sure you are sewing all the pieces inside out, sew along that edge with a quarter of an inch seam allowance

Flip the  shoe right sides and prepare your elastic for insertion, i used a plastic needle and threaded a piece of thread through the needle and the elastic i found this made it easier to slip through the letter

Pull the elastic out and sew the raw edges together, put the elastic to your desired ankle size

my Elastic is about 6″ long 1/4″ thick

Using sharp scissors slip the leather with quarter of an inch fringe, you can do this part in any way you like of course 🙂



Easy towel Head Wrap

To use this towel you bend over with your head down and your hair hanging to the floor
place the button portion lining up with your spine on the back of your neck, with your fingers place the edge
of the towel along your hair line while pushing your wet hair into the towel, pinch the hair wrap at the centre
of your forehead and begin to twist 3 or 4 times while bringing the loop at the end of the tail over your head
to hook onto the button at the back of your head

For this project you will need a cheap towel or terry cloth, a 1 inch button and some cotton Cord

Sewing Peg Board storage setup

How do you hang a Peg board? When hanging a peg board it is important you create about a 1/2″ behind the peg board, you can purchase a peg board mounting kit but all you need is a washer such as this and a screw that will fit inside of it, make sure the head of the screw is larger then one of the peg board holes and choose a hole at the top, the great thing about a peg board is you can line it up with your studs to make sure you have it nice and secure so find your studs and then choose a hole that is over the stud to screw into

If you screw it into a stud you can literally hang off of this thing haha

These are many different types of hooks you can get for your peg board, i purchased a few variety packs and then some longer ones at my local hardware store

I found these adorable buckets in my gardening section of Dollarama, these are great for small items adds addition storage and you can take it down to use and then stick it back up when your done

to organize my zippers i chose to stack them and use a binder clip to hang them, i love this idea instead of jamming them all into a drawer now i can see how many of each colour i have left!

I got this thread holder at Joann’s and i used a two prong hook and hooked it on, alot better then buying a ton of hooks for each spool

And now all my scissors and hand tools are beautifully displayed

I hooked the buckets on the bottom so i dont take up any extra room and are in arms  reach

I used this long basket and hooked it onto two hooks and this fits my washi tapes perfectly!
