Repurposed OxyClean Container... U have to look in this link!
I know I said I had a recipe to share next, but I changed my mind. I've had my eye on many versions of repurposed containers on Pinterest. I desperately need cute storage bins, but somehow diapers and new shoes for my ever growing boys end up higher on the shopping list than new storage bins and baskets. Here are a few that I've found on Pinterest... The Kleenex box... Source: southernflaircrafts.wordpress.com via Anika on Pinterest The tin cans... Source: shabbychicinspired.blogspot.com via Anika on Pinterest The Diaper box... Source: positivelysplendid.com via Anika on Pinterest Awesome! Right? When I was cleaning out our entryway closet, which also holds all of my laundry supplies, I found this old OxyClean container (from back when they were still round - although I think the new rectangular ones will work too, they just aren't as deep) and decided to try my hand at making it into something that could sit out on a shelf without being an eyesore. I decided to paper mache the outside and make a fabric liner that would fold over the top. I used Elmer's White Glue and warm water - about equal parts, but I didn't measure. Then I started ripping pieces of this Kraft colored wrapping paper, dipping them in the glue and applying them to the container. Here it is with one layer. It took about 2 or 3 layers to completely cover the bright blue plastic. Then I let it dry overnight. In the morning it looked like this. I had some left over denim so I flipped the container over and traced the TOP rim onto the denim since it's bigger than the bottom - that way I had room for a seam allowance when I sewed it to the rectangular piece. I didn't take pictures of the sewing process, but first I ironed some Hem Tape to the top long edge of the rectangular piece. Stitching it up didn't take long at all, and I even got it right on the first try! (Thought I'd have to pull out the seam ripper for sure!) I put the liner in and tied some ribbon around it (it didn't need the ribbon, I just wanted to dress it up a bit). I think it's adorable, and I'm going to use it to serve pretzel rods dipped in chocolate at a 4th of July party. I'll try to remember to get a picture of that to share later too. Have you repurposed any containers lately? I'd love to see them! Are you planning anything exciting for the 4th? We are looking forward to celebrating with friends and family at a grill out complete with cold slushy drinks (it's supposed to be hot and sticky here) and lots of fireworks! Thanks for stopping by! ~Anika

I don't know about your child, but my son's favorite jeans are Lived-in, Loved, and Worn-Out. So with the trend in Denim this spring being not so much about the wash, but in DIY, I love that I can Patch up his favorite pair of jeans and he will look Cool and not like he is wearing hand me downs. On the runways for spring DKNY showed Patches on Denim, Alexander McQueen showed Patched Denim, and my favorite was Junya Watanabe's Patchwork on Denim. This Denim trend will make it's way to the children's wear market, but until then you can use your Child's Favorite Denim as a canvas to personalize, embellish, print, doodle, splatter, stud, and Patch to reflect his or her own unique style. I am planning to go to the Craft store and buy Patches to pile onto a pair of my son's Favorite jeans (like the DKNY ones), but I also love these necessary options for Patching up his worn out playground knees on his jeans. Wow a trend that is Fashionable and Functional- I Love It! I will be posting about this Patched Denim trend again with options of Patched Jeans to buy, but until then I absolutely love these DIY options that allow you to Patch your Child's Denim with Love! This Monster Patch is my absolute favorite, as it is just as cute for a girl as it is for a boy. I love the classic Red Mouth as here, but also adorable is the Pink, Green, and Turquoise version above for Girls. Parents.com has an easy tutorial for you to follow, and their Patch Mouth is Blue. You can use your Child's favorite color to make their Monster Unique- this is sure to be your child's favorite pair of jeans! This adorable Heart Patch is truly mending made fun, and you can do other shapes besides a heart, as the tutorial from Honost to Nod shows. I like the idea of a star for a boy or a girl- star prints are also trending for spring and I will post more about stars soon. Find out the four secrets to a well-mended wardrobe at designmom.com in addition to following an easy tutorial to create this beautiful as well as durable Under Patch; the hand-sewn star stitches are not only cute, but they also help keep the patch firmly in place. You can use any fabric for the Under Patch, making this a great Patch for a boy or a girls pair of jeans! These mended jeans from boostitch are like a work of art. The pick-stitch is called a sashiko stitch and adds a beautiful rippling texture. Traditional sashiko stitching was used by Japanese to fortify the clothing and was normally used on a blue indigo fabric with white stitching thread (so it is perfect for mending denim). If you would like to learn more about how to execute this beautiful Patch see the technique of "sashiko" at quilt studio. Photo: rudyandthedodo.com.au
