DIY Swiffer Pads: Like the idea of a Swiffer, but hate spending money on the pads? Here’s an idea for DIY Swiffer pads that are reusable! Take a chenille sock and pull it over the head of the Swiffer mop. It’s as easy as that! After use, throw the sock into the washing machine, making it reusable. Most dollar stores sell a pair of chenille socks, making this DIY even more frugal!

no more uneven hems! great idea!
Such a smart trick for making an even hem. To make a 1-inch hem, for example, draw a line on card stock, 1 inch in from an edge. Place the card stock on fabric, with line parallel to fabric edge. Fold fabric over card stock, aligning fabric edge with line; press with an iron. Repeat, folding and pressing again to encase the raw edge. Stitch hem to secure.

d.i.y. perfect dress form. I remember someone I knew from college making a dress form out of duct tape.
d.i.y. perfect dress form.... i've been thinking about getting into sewing... hmmm
DIY Dress form idea
OMG, I totally agree with the Previous Repinner, as dress forms (not very high quality ones) avg. $200 easy in my neck of the woods, not my price range for my novice sewing skills... Repinned: "If I can get something like this made, I will never see daylight again. I will be sewing and altering all my clothing into what I really want to wear. I can't seem to find anything in department stores these days."
My house smells so good, after making this! I refuse to buy Febreze ever again.
