I love making semi-homemade projects. I say "semi-homemade" because I don't make the object I decorate...... I just HAVE to make it cuter! I also like to make semi-homemade meals.

Pot craft idea!

Supplies you need: a pot holder, snack bags (they are like sandwich bags but smaller), 1 button, and a sewing machine. (If you don't have a sewing machine, you could probably sew it with a needle and thread.)

1. Obtain a pot holder.
2. Sew a big button on the center of the opposite end of the loop. (Sew it on the side that everyone will see when it's closed.)
3. Stack at least 10 bags evenly and sew the end without the zip lock right in the center of the pot holder.
4. You can also stack a cute ribbon on the top of the bags so that it could look cuter.

You can use it as a sewing kit, a first aid kit, or just to keep anything you want to put in your purse that you might loose because it's too little. Mine has band aids, dental floss, quarters, safety pins, a nail file, matches, a little bar of soap, toothpicks, a little pair of scissors, etc.

That is it! Isn't it simple? It's also a very inexpensive project. You can make them and fill the little bags and give them to friends for Christmas. Gotta run! I'm going to the store to buy some cute pot holders. I think I saw some at the dollar store.
