So I know this week we have showed you how to do some pretty in depth sewing tutorials with the child’s backpackmega card holder wallet and the hanging toiletry bag.  I will say we saved the easiest sewing project for last.  This little “busy bag” is the perfect way to keep your kids occupied on long car rides, in restaurants, or waiting in the doctor’s office.

I have teamed up with Online Fabric Store this week to bring you four sewing tutorials using the most beautiful fabric like Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry and Michael Miller. I thought we would start the week with a backpack we made for Kayla’s upcoming school year.  We?  Yes we!  My amazing cousin Lindsay is visiting from Chicago to help with these tutorials.

DIY Stained Wood Shim Starburst Mirror

I am absolutely thrilled with how my DIY stained wood shim mirror turned out.  I know there are a zillion tutorials out there for making mirrors like this.  However, I think I am the only crazy one that sanded and stained 315 wood shims.  That part was not for the weak of heart.  Me-oh-my!  But I love it, I love it, I love it and don’t regret the decision for one minute!
