22  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / DIY Bath Fizzies!! on: September 25, 2012 02:32:38 PM
These were super fun to make and didn't take too long.


You will need:
1/2 cup citric acid (I got a jar of this at my local health food store)
1 cup baking soda
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup organic cane sugar
food coloring
essential oil(s)
travel-size spray bottle
silicone ice-cube tray
storage jars

Mix the citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch in a heat proof bowl. Sift all the clumps out of the cornstarch and then add the sugar.

Fill a spray bottle with water and food coloring and spritz the mixture with it. It's so neat! Keep spritzing the water on the mixture until you can mold it with your hands.

Then press it into whatever molds you want to use! Let is dry overnight and voila! Homemade bath bombs!

There are a few more pictures on my blog http://www.soverydomestic.com/blog/?p=5935. I want to try scents now!
23  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddler Pants! on: March 13, 2012 01:15:56 PM
I made these from a baby blanket!! No babies around here now but the fabric is sweet so I put it to use!

I blogged about these here http://www.soverydomestic.com/blog/?p=4251 with more pictures but this tute should do!

You'll Need
Pair of elastic or drawstring pants that fit your wee one
2+ yards of cute fabric (how much depends on the size of your wee one)
Pins, sewing machine, stuff like that...

First, fold the pair of pants that fit your wee one in half and lay them over the fabric. Trace around, adding about 1/2″ for the seam all the way around. Now do it again. Lay them right side facing and pin together.

Sew the curves first, down the sides and hem the bottoms.

This is the part that gave me trouble, I had to keep checking and double checking that I wasnt about to sew the front of the pants to the butt, you know? I did it! If I can do it, you can defo do this.

Now for the grommets! You can make an actual drawstring waist or a fake drawstring like I did. Snip a wee hole to pop one side of the grommet through. Then sew up the rest of the waistband and voila! Super simple and way cute!

25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Skully Guitar Strap on: February 29, 2012 08:27:23 AM
I made a cute skully guitar strap for one of our cousins for Christmas! It was a little tricky but it worked out well. I used a kit that came with the webbing for the strap, the plastic loops to put the finished strap through and the small leather pieces to attach the strap to the guitar.

I just followed the instructions in the kit, but I also blogged about it here - http://www.soverydomestic.com/blog/index.php/2012/02/28/4080/

I have used it on glass and wood with no issues. I have read that using it on canvas can be irritating to write on later because it cracks. I'd imagine any hard surface would work well and the best part is a box of grout is only about $3 and you just need a tablespoon of grout to a cup of paint.

I really wanted to make some jars with chalkboard paint labels and thought - why not try to make the paint myself while I'm at it.

It is incredibly easy! All you need is dry non-sanding grout (like for bathroom tiles) and paint. The only thing I'd mention is if you want the chalkboard paint to turn out a really vibrant color use the white grout and if you're going for the more traditional black chalkboard paint, use the black grout!

Here are a few pictures of the process and finished jars - I blogged about it a bit here http://www.soverydomestic.com/blog/index.php/2012/01/17/homemade-chalkboard-paint-and-cute-jars/

I've started making lunches like this for my kids at school but I don't have bento boxes. Your lunch looks so much cuter in it!! I'm off to look for some now!
