When cooking time is close to being done, make a side of couscous, or serve it with rice. I also like to have some pita bread on hand to scoop up the last few delicious bites left in the bowl.

No Sew Tshirt Bag Tutorial

A Crafty Arab No Sew Tshirt Bag TutorialRecently A Crafty Arab was fortune to collect a few tshirts after being a sponsor of the 2015 Arab Festival in Seattle.  The Producer gifted our family with five tshirts but in the year since, my youngest has outgrown hers.

 

Today we turned it into a bag to store in the car door.  It folds up nicely and is ready for our emergency stops for groceries after a day of carpool.  We hope this pares our use of plastic bags to make our earth a better place to live.

 

Supplies

Tshirt
Circle template
Sharpie
Fabric scissors

No Sew Tshirt Bag Tutorial

Lay your tshirt on a flat surface.  Take your round template, in our case a mixing bowl, and place it along the collar of the tshirt. Use the Sharpie to mark along the outer edge.

Use your Sharpie to mark along the arm lines.

Trying to keep the tshirt as flat as possible, cut along the neckline.

Take your Sharpie and make two inch lines along the bottom edge of your tshirt.

Holding your tshirt pieces together and making sure everything lays flat, cut along the lines.

Now you’ll need to turn your tshirt inside out.

Take the top cut piece and tie it with the bottom piece. In the photo below, this is A and B.  Then do the same with the next two.  This creates C and D. But do you see how there is space between the two ties now, where the arrow is?  To get rid of that, you’ll need to take piece B and tie it with piece C.

Continue tying the upper and lower pieces together, then taking one of them and tying them with thier neighbor until all the knots are tied all the way across.

Leaf Mosaics Tutorial

ACraftyArab Leaf Mosaics TutorialFall is in the air and with it comes the beautiful colorful leaves that are falling to the ground from the trees losing their foliage.

 

Our family took a walk in park on Sunday and we collected leaves with different colors.  We spent the afternoon making fun mosaics and coming up with new pictures.

 

Supplies

Leaves
Punch

ACraftyArab Leaf Mosaics Tutorial

Start by washing all the leaves and drying them (by hand) before putting them through the punch. We started with a square punch but then added shapes more later.

After they were all done, we set them up like khatams and put them in the same design as one we had made for the Khatam banner.
