A few days ago, I showed you how to use a potato stamp to decorate a tote bag. Well I just can’t stop! I’ve started making little cards and prints.
I love the way the stamp makes the same shape each time, but it ends ups with a very different iteration each time. The gradients in the ink are particularly beautiful I think.
The process to make cards is exactly the same as the tote bag, just with a different surface, so if you want to make these, check out the first tutorial.
You can buy this particular set in my online shop, MakeOrBreakShop.
I love potato stamps. They are so simple, easy, and inexpensive, yet they produce really cool results.
Let’s get to it!
For this project, you will need:
– tote bag
– fabric paint or ink
– knife & cutting board
– potato (preferably one that is “about to go”)
You may also want to wear gloves to protect your hands and put down newspapers on your work surface. Fabric paint has a way of getting on everything if you aren’t super careful…

I saw a tutorial on a rhinestone bracelet the other day, but I wanted to try it out with embroidery floss because I have loads of it from my days making friendship bracelets. The floss lends itself to weaving in between the stones and adds a spicy pop of color.
This tutorial uses rhinestone crimps which can be tricky to find. To make a bracelet with only floss and rhinestone chain, check out this tutorial instead.
These make great Christmas presents for your besties!

I’m working on a tutorial for how to draw a beautiful ocean scene on to a tote bag. Stay tuned!

I stopped by the stationery store on the way home today and picked up a few supplies including push pins, which I was intending to use to put up photos, but when I got home I saw this:
What a mess. Why is my tape measure sitting on my jewellery shelf?
I used a couple of the push pins to string up necklaces. I also removed anything that didn’t seem like it should really be there… like a tape measure.
It’s really so easy to be organized and tidy. Why do we fight it so?
I also finally got around to tacking up a couple of my photos and prints on the wall. Starting to really feel like home now!
I’m working on a new tutorial involving embroidery floss and rhinestones! Stay tuned!
