My sons have recently started a program called Therapeutic Listening. It involves listening to customized CDs with a portable CD player and special headset. I wanted a way for them to be able to move around freely while listening to their CD, so I set out to make them CD player belts. I didn’t find any online tutorials – most likely because most people use iPods these days (I found plenty of iPod case/carrier tutorials) – so I decided to make one myself. Hopefully it will help someone else along the way. :)
I have a ton of frumpy t-shirts – mostly ones I’ve received for free – and I only wear them to sleep. I am in need of some more shirts, so I thought I would try my hand at converting my own shirts to something I would feel comfortable wearing out of the house. After converting my boys’ shirts to smaller sizes for tee-ball (see How To: Make a T-Shirt Fit) I converted a few of my own and am really happy with the results!
My sons have started tee-ball this year, and were excited to get their “jerseys”, which are one-size-does-NOT-fit-all t-shirts. My guys are pretty little, so the shirt fit something like a dress.

I’ve been wanting to make some reusable snack bags but haven’t been sure how to best go about doing that. Based on a few different ideas and tutorials I read online, I made my own simple version that is really fast to make and works perfectly. Even my 2.5 years olds can open and close these little bags easily.
This one turned out so cute and can be done in as little as fifteen minutes. My kind of project!
Here’s a quick one I learned by reading on-line tutorials: the hooded towel. This one is so easy that all you need to make two hooded towels are two regular bath towels and one hand towel. I can literally make these in 5 minutes — I made two right before taking the kids up for a bath tonight!
