  • Enlighten Your Room With A Mandala Pillow

    If you have never tried Diamond Art by Leisure Arts, now is the time! It's a calming craft that results in beautiful sparkly art. Your masterpiece doesn't have to sit in a drawer or taped to a wall—you can sparkle up phone cases, throw pillows, storage boxes, bags, whatever your imagination allows.

    Mandala—not just a pretty circle

    Today's tutorial takes you through the steps to create your own mandala pillow. The circular shape of a mandala symbolizes unity, eternity, wholeness, perfection. Additional elements give each mandala an even deeper meaning. We've noticed that mandalas are hypnotic, and bring a sense of peace and comfort to a room. We couldn't think of a better place to display our Blue Mandala than a cozy pillow.

    Blue Mandala Pillow - DIY Diamond Art
    Leisure Arts Diamond Art Powered by Diamond Dotz - Blue Mandala Kit #50454

    You can use this tutorial for other pillows as well, just pick your Diamond Art kit, which include three additional mandalas: Sun Mandala, Mandala and Moon Mandala.

    Leisure Arts Diamond Art Powered by Diamond Dotz kits: Sun Mandala #49304; Mandala #49301; Moon Mandala #50448

    SUPPLIES

    • A Diamond Art Canvas (Blue Mandala Kit)
    • Strong Adhesive Backing (fabric glue, hot glue, etc.)
    • Color-Coordinated Pillow (Type and size may vary, but MUST have a solid surface, no fur/velvet)
    • Scissors
    • Sewing Thread & Needle (embroidery floss, thick sewing thread, etc.)
    • OPTIONAL — Extra Accessories (pom-poms, tassels, beads, etc.)

    Get Started on Your Pillow

    1. Dazzle Your Diamond Art Canvas

    Diamond Art doesn't have a big learning curve. It is a leisurely craft that allows you to easily put the canvas away for later. Complete it in one day, or complete it one day next week; it's up to you!

    2. Cut Out Your Dazzle Area

    After you've dazzled your way to success, carefully cut out your design.

    3. Create Your Trim 

    Our canvas frays minimally, so don't have to worry about lining or sewing your edges. But, if you would like the extra support, carefully line the edges of your cut-out canvas with embroidery floss or thread. (We did sew the edges of our design in the photo above, because we liked the look of the border.)

    4. Craft Your Pillow

    Get to work on placing your design onto the center of your throw pillow using your adhesive of choice and a steady hand. Make sure to layout flat, and smooth the canvas out for air bubbles once placed. If you're worried about our gems falling off, don't be! Our adhesive keeps our gems intact with the force of a thousand dazzling suns. 

    6. Accessorize (Or Don't)! 

    Now that your Diamond Art is placed, all that’s left are finishing touches. Make your pillow one of a kind by adding extra accessories around the edges, or placing a gem here and there. Show the world how creative you can be with your Diamond Art. Be 'extra' to your heart’s content, and then voila! You have a decorative and dazzling mandala pillow.

    If you try your hand at this project, please share it to our Diamond Art Facebook Page! We'd love to see what's going on in your studio.

    Happy Dazzling!

  • Pass On Your Love Of Knit Or Crochet

    If you're looking for a way to unplug the kids from the internet, TV, or video games, crocheting and/or knitting are sure to do the trick! Both are fun—and productive—hobbies for kids of all ages.

    Linking learning with fun is the most effective way to teach. Once your favorite child sees that this fun activity leads to creating something they can keep and cherish, or gift to someone special, their excitement will only grow. Not only that, both knitting and crocheting use real-life math and reading, and helps improve fine motor skills. There's knit a thing to lose and so much to gain!

    Getting Down To The Knitty Gritty

    Children will love the step-by-step photos and kid-friendly instructions in Cool Stuff—Teach Me to Knit. Soon they'll be hooked, proudly creating their own beautiful and useful projects. Our book includes helpful notes for you while you teach, along with tips & videos to help along the way.

    After learning the slip knot and cast on, the first easy-to-take-on project is a knit coaster (or as a simple decorative touch under vases, frames or knick knacks). A few projects later is a soft drink cozy, which can be made to match the coaster. Keep your hands warm and your table dry while drinking a cold can of your favorite 12-ounce beverage, all the while beaming with pride.

    Knit Coasters & Soft Drink Cozy, Cool Stuff Teach Me to Knit #6648

    Before you can say "To knit or not to knit, now that’s just a silly question," your special youngster will be on the way to being an awesome knitter, making this lap-sized wrap and pillow that will wow everyone!

    As if that weren't enough, children will learn to create their own scarf, leg warmers, mittens and hat, to stay nice and cozy through the winter. Just imagine the look of pride on their face when they are out and about wearing their own creations!

    Leg Warmers, Scarf, Hat, Mittens, Cool Stuff Teach Me to Knit #6648

    Olé, It's Time To Crochet!

    If crochet is more your style, Teach Me To Crochet gives similar tips and instructions to make any child a pro. Once they go through the basics of crochet, they'll create a chain loop daisy. Your child will be delighted to display these daisies on their backpack, notebook, hair clip, wherever they want!

  • Retro Christmas Cross Stitch

    Retro Christmas Cross Stitch Christmas is a super fun look at retro Christmas designs that will inspire thoughts of Norman Rockwell paintings and episodes of Leave it to Beaver and I Love Lucy!  We love the throwback cross stitch designs so much that we invited today's guest blogger, Lee Fisher, to talk about the inspiration for her fabulous designs in Retro Christmas Cross Stitch. Welcome Lee!

    Who doesn’t love Christmas?! The colorful lights, the sound of old familiar carols being sung, the stockings hung on the mantle above a crackling fire, the fragrant aroma of turkey or ham filling the house as one by one friends & family arrive. Gathered in the living room with the Christmas tree all a twinkle & trimmed with decorations that span the years, inevitably the conversation will turn to Christmases past and the memories of childhood.

    These were the thoughts running through my mind as I created the designs for Retro Christmas Cross Stitch. I wanted to capture those images which seem so familiar to our own childhood and the Christmases of the 1950’s and 1960’s.

    Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher

    When I was growing up we had a big, fat, floor to ceiling artificial Christmas tree with tons of decorations but among my favorites were the frosted gingerbread houses. I remember staring at them & being amazed at how real they looked…I wanted to reach out & taste the frosting! With that in mind I designed “Home Sweet Home”, the sweetest little gingerbread house on the block with its peppermint flowers & frosted gumdrop bushes all topped with a bright red cherry. What a wonderful treat for you to enjoy…and guilt free with zero calories!

    screen-shot-2017-07-19-at-3-42-46-pm Home Sweet Home Gingerbread House Design from Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher

    A personal favorite of mine is “Let Heaven and Nature Sing” because this design is also taken directly from my life. I am pleased to present…my children~ Brandon, Shannon & Natasha. When they were little we often went caroling for the neighbors with the three little ones bundled up in their little onesie snow suits, caps & mittens absolutely butchering all the traditional Christmas carols at the top of our lungs. But our neighbors were gracious…they always clapped when we were done.

    In the past, as it is now, traveling was always another important event during the holiday season. Going to Grandma & Grandpa's house, visiting friends or even heading out for Christmas Eve services, being all squashed together in the back seat with siblings and packages was just another part of the excitement of Christmas. On these trips I spent my time looking out the window, wide eyed, taking in all the sights & signs we’d pass. I particularly loved the very colorful & graphic advertising designs of the atomic era. These memories were the inspiration for “Happy New Year” and “Eat Drink & be Merry”.

    Eat, Drink & Be Merry Design from Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher Eat, Drink & Be Merry Design from Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher

    Christmas is always a time when we remember loved ones both near and far. Another tradition many of us like to observe is the sending of Christmas cards. In my home as a child, every card that came in the mail was treasured and put on display. Some setting on shelves, mantels and hanging on the wall strung on colorful ribbon. I remember some as having the cutest pictures of baby animals in the snow, like my design “Hello Old Friend” seeing his reflection in the Christmas ball. Others were decorated with glittering ornaments and candy cane like our “Merry Christmas” design. And some came with a single, simple sentiment like “Warm Christmas Wishes.”

    Of course one of the most enjoyable things about Christmas as a kid was…the gifts! Oh the colorful packages piled high and overflowing with spiraling ribbons & bows. And the excitement of checking all the tags to find your very own name. I remember some of these tags being just as ornate as the ornaments on the tree and always wanting to keep them. With that in mind I wanted to create a design that would be perfect for gift giving and “For my Deer Friend” was born. Finishing this one out as a gift bag or wine bottle bag is perfect and adds a delightful touch of whimsy to the occasion.

    For My Deer Friend Design from Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher For My Deer Friend Design from Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher

    One of the most magical memories of my childhood was a snowy Christmas eve when I was drowsily tucked up in bed dreaming of Christmas morning, when all of a sudden I heard bells…Jingle Bells!! I ran to the window and swiped away the frosty fog and down below in a swirly mist of snow were two big brown horses in jingle bell harness trotting down the middle of the street pulling a real sleigh and inside was Santa himself bellowing out “Merry Christmas, and to all a good night~ ho-ho-ho!” Over the years there has been a long running debate as to who it was. But to those of us who believe….there is no question about it and so I honor that memory with “And to All a Good Night”.

    And to All a Good Night Design from Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher And to All a Good Night Design from Retro Christmas Cross Stitch by Lee Fisher

    I do hope you enjoy all of these designs as much as I do and that you too will cherish the memories of your childhood. I wish you and yours a wonderfully Retro Christmas!
