If you’re reading this and you didn’t win this time, I’d highly recommend subscribing to the Slice Fabrique blog so you can hear about future contests. (We’ve also had some great giveaways linked up this week, including fabric, craft books, handmade items and more.)
This week’s Fresh Picks include some goodies from the garden, a way to give back, and some 10-minute crafts:
DIY Nursery Art: Put broken crayons to good use with this cute and simple idea for decorating a child’s room! Lisa shares the monogram artwork how-to at The Pursuit of Happiness.
Upcycled Plant Markers: If you have some old business cards sitting around, cover up the outdated text with chalkboard spray paint and create these garden markers! Brilliant tip from Kim at Yellow Songbird.
Around the World: Help someone learn to sew around the world. You could even win some sweet fabric! Read more details at Handmade by Alissa.
More Veggies, Please! Have some extra zucchini growing in your garden? Turn it into something unexpected. Natalie shares her recipe for zucchini brownies at A Turtle’s Life for Me.
Round and Round: It’s easy to make this giant pinwheel for an end-of-summer party! Or, why not switch out bridal bouquets for these whimsical paper flowers? Get the tutorial at Sunla Designs.
