Guest Post: Sweet Lemonade

Hello! Today i am happy to welcome Naomi from sweet lemonade. She is very talented and has awesome ideas so go and check out her blog.

Hello, everyone! I'm Nay, or Naomi, from Sweet Lemonayde! I am a teen who loves to sew and do crafts. Thanks for letting me be here!
Today I'm going to share a super easy tutorial for fleece rainboot liners--or any boots, really. They only take about 20 minutes!

Materials: 1/2-1 yard of fleece (or flannel, or any soft, cuddly fabric you have on hand), scissors, measuring tape, pins, sewing machine, thread, boots (for a guide)

Measure from the ankle of your boot to the top.

Decide how wide you would like your cuff. Double this number and add an inch or two. Add this number to your top-to-ankle boot measurement. Cut out 2 large rectangles by that height and a large width.

Wrap the rectangle around your boot like so and pin in place.

Cut off excess fabric, leaving seam allowance.

Now, if you're very precise you can repeat the whole wrap-and-pin process with the other rectangle. If you're like me (lazy) then just fold your 2nd rectangle in half, put it under the first, and cut off excess.

Fold a rectangle in half, right sides together, pin, and sew up the side. Repeat with the other rectangle. Tada! Done. You should now have 2 tubes. Er, I mean, liners.

You can either put the liner on first and stick your leg into your boot (like a leg warmer), or you can place the liner inside your boot with the seam at the back, fold the top edge over an inch, fold it over so your previous 1" fold lines up with the top of the boot, and fold over the whole top of the boot.

Warm and cozy boots...
Come stop by my blog and say hi! Thanks so much for letting me be here, Adeela! You're awesome!

Beaded bracelets and rings!

I have never mentioned it but I am a partial beader. I find it fun and I love matching the beads with my wardrobe.  So last night I decided that I didn't have enough jewelry so there I went...

I made two sets of bracelets the first set is a red and pink set.

The second set is blue and green.


These two are my favourite.

They are so pretty! ^__^

The holder is thrifted (awesome).
If you want you can request a tutorial for these bracelets or rings.

Happy Crafting!

Pink I spy Quilt

*See the winner of the giveaway here, and get a $10 dollar promo code here*

My first quilt! YAY! it was so easy and turned out great. Very girly.

I used a kind of knit fabric for the backing (its what I had and it is soft) and one layer of batting.

I did the pattern by just laying out all the pieces and seeing what looked the best. My mom helped me with that part.

Instead of quilting it I tied it.

I love the border!

Happy sewing, and quilting!

Oven Mitts With Matching Coaster

*Don't forget to enter the giveaway*

I made a pair of oven mitts using this tutorial and guess how much this adorable fabric was? $2 meter, in the bargain section.

I made the coaster using this tutorial but instead of doing lines to quilt it I went around the heart.


Happy sewing!
