DIY (259) – Dog puppet

Hi evryone!!!!

Yesterday we saw how to sew a doll. Today instead we will see how to make a very nice puppet (dog).

All you need is a needle, thread, padding and some colored fabric.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 259



colored fabric – needle and thread – scissors – padding – template (below) – reinforced fabric

Begin by transferring the design below onto the fabric (x 2 for the body right side against right side).
Cut the lower part (twice) on reinforcement fabric.
Cut your ears off four times.

Leave an edge of about 3 cm from the seam.

Sew all pieces together (leaving a small hole to insert the filling).
Your puppet is ready!

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.

See you tomorrow with another easy DIY!!!


DIY (243) – Very easy DIY puppets: giraffe

Hi evryone!!!!

Have you ever thought about creating your own puppets for your children?

Do you think it’s very complicated?

Try to make this giraffe and then tell me if it was so complicated. 🙂

If you really don’t like sewing, you can also use hot glue.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 243



colored fabric – needle and thread (or hot glue if you really do not want to try it with the sewing ;-)) – padding – twine or tape (for the ponytail) – scissors – template (below)

Print the template below and cut it out

Fold a piece of fabric in half (right against right).

With pins pass through the two pieces of fabric (so that they stay together.

Draw the borders on one side of the fabric.

Cut the two pieces of fabric leaving about 1/2 cm for the seam.

Sew leaving a small hole to insert the padding and for the tail.

Turn the line so the right side is outward.

Insert the padding, insert the tail and sew the last remaining piece.

Your giraffe is ready!

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.

See you tomorrow with another easy DIY!!!


DIY (105) – Pom Pom teddy bear

Hi everyone!

Today we will see another project using pom poms for creating a beautiful teddy bear.

I used a pom pom maker but if you don’t have one, you can easily create one with cardboard.

To see the procedure for making a pom pom out of cardboard, follow the instructions on my previous post:

Let’s start!

DIY N. 105



wool thread – pom pom maker: for the body you will need one with an external diameter of 5,5 cm and an internal one of 4,5 cm; for the arms, legs and ears, you will need one with a diameter of 3,5 cm and an internal one of 2cm – hot glue – colored ribbon – black thread and needle.
note: remember that each pom pom maker is made out of two circles of the same size.

Follow the same procedure of the t-shirt pom pom, using the measures above.

With the bigger pom pom maker make the body.

With the smaller one, make the ears, tail, arms and legs. Once they are ready, cut off the unnecessary part (for the ears and the tail you will need to cut more so that they will turn out a bit smaller).

With the black thread make the eyes, nose and mouth of your teddy bear (if you wish you can also use colored buttons for the eyes).

Stick all the pom poms together with the hot glue.

Add the colored ribbon and your teddy bear is ready!

Hope you liked this idea!

See you tomorrow with another easy DIY.

DIY (92) – Plushies: easy to sew bunny

Hi everyone!

I absolutely adore this bunny! You don’t need to be very good in sewing to create one and you will find the pattern at the end of this post.

By the way, it’s done with an old sweater.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 92



old sweater – filling – needle and thread – colored fabric for the scarf – permanent marker

Start by printing the pattern. Cut the pieces and copy them on the fabric (I used an old sweater).

Sew together the ears and the arms (right sides together) leaving a little opening for inserting the filling.

Put the filling and close with an invisible point if you use normal fabric. With wool you won’t have this problem because if you sew carefully it will be hidden in the wool.

Use a thread that is as close as possible to the color of the fabric.

Once you have filled and closed the ears and arms, place them inside the pieces of the body (see picture). Also in this case the two body parts must be right side with right side.

Pin the pieces so that they won’t move. Sew the body parts leaving an opening for taking out the ears and arms once you reverse it. If you find this step too complicated, you can join the two parts of the body and after stick the ears and arms with needle and thread.

Put the filling in the body and close.

Draw the eyes with a permanent marker.

Draw a triangle for the nose and sew with pink thread (fill the triangle).

For the mouth, always with a pink thread, make a single stitch starting from the nose down. Repeat returning with the stitch to the nose. Don’t tighten the not too much, so that the line will keep straight.

Cut a piece of colored fabric for the scarf, add it to your bunny and you’re done!


For the arms I used the lower part of the sweater which has a texture.

Color the top with the color you prefer.

DIY (66) – T-shirt shaped card

Hi everyone!!

Here we are with another idea for Father’s Day: a beautiful T-shirt shaped greeting card.

You can decorate it with buttons and everything else you can think of.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 66



colored cardboard – scissors – glue – various objects that you have in the house to decorate (buttons, etc.)

Take an A4 sheet and fold the long sides towards the center (a colored paper will look nicer).

Bend out the top corners to form a V in the center.

Flip the sheet (top/bottom and front/back). On the side opposite the two protruding triangles, fold the upper side (about 2.5cm).

Turn the sheet and fold the left corner towards the center line.

Now bend the right corner, always towards the center, to form a small V.

Fold the bottom side of the sheet to the collar; the shirt is finished, having place just that side under the collar.

At this point it’s time to decorate and the shirt for dad!

Your Father’s day greeting card is ready!
