Last month I discovered some of my mom’s old embroidery she’d crafted as a teen and posted about it. This month I stumbled across a lovely diy tutorial for making Stitched Furniture Silhouettes and so I just had to share those too!
Stitched Furniture Silhouettes from Flamingo Toes Blog
You can visit Flamingo Toes Blog for the full, detailed photo tutorial on how to make these beautiful framed fabric works of art. You’ll just need a collection of frames – this is a great way to recycle old frames that you no longer use or have missing glass as spray paint will restore them to their former glory with a new look – various colored fabrics – have fabric scraps lying around? – some thread, embroidery floss, fusible fleece, cardboard for backing, a hot glue gun, and the patterns for the pieces which are found on Flamingo Toes.

Coconut oil is an amazing product. Not only can you use it for cooking – like in this great recipe for homemade, organic Elephant Ears – but it’s also perfect for bath and body products. In soapmaking, coconut oil helps to create a fluffy lather; in skin care products it lends its moisturizing properties.

If you’re looking to make your own bath and body products using coconut oil to give this oil a try, you may want to start with the Coconut Body Whip Recipe from Phemomenon Blog. The recipe yields a 1/3 cup of lotion from a coconut oil base and serves as a great recipe for beginners as there are no advanced techniques. Just melt, mix, and strain. Keep in the fridge after making and enjoy it on your sunburn as an after sun lotion.
