DIY Upcycled Pet Bed


Hello there! It's DIY time!, (again, finally)
So today, I want to share with you a little idea I had to make little Remi a bed or pillow, so he can feel comfortable all day, and rest. (something that he mostly does all the time, besides playing and yawning) I decided to use some old pants we had, they didn't fit us anymore, and the fabric is just perfect for a small dog bed. So this is how you can do one for your own pet:
What you'll need: 
- Some old pants (you can use more or less pants depending on the size of your dog)
- Stuffing (also depends on the size of the bed)
- Fabric scissors
- Sewing machine, or needle and thread.

Steps: 
1. Extend the legs of the pants and align them.
2.  Cut both legs at the same height, and turn them over.
3. Put together the two ends of the fabric, (making the sizes match if they were bell bottom pants as mine)
4. Sew one of the sides completely.
5. You should get a long piece, like the one in the photo, turn it over again.
6. - 7.  Sew half of the fabric you have in that end, in the way the stitches are correct if you turn it the right side.
8. Sew the other part (here it is impossible to cover the stitches) and leave a space to stuff the pillow.
9.  Stuff your pillow/bed until you are happy with its shape.
10. Finally, use your needle and thread to sew the last part of the bed.

And there you go! You have a great upcycled bed for your little buddy.
I decided to add the name of little Remi to his bed.
My sister wanted it as a pillow, I guess it is another good use for it! If you like it it can also work as some sort of pillow (like those they sell for trips or for the airplanes!) In the end we gave it to Remi, at first he was a bit reluctant to go inside, but then he had a great time playing and getting used to his new bed/pillow!
So that's it, I really hope you like this idea, and do it for your pets!
Have an awesome day, lots of love. Monica

DIY Oreo Cup


Hello again! I am sorry I didn't post for a while, but today there is a DIY that involves something I really enjoy, FOOD. I really hope you like it, it is really fast and easy, and of course really tasty. A great way to make a dessert in some minutes.

These are the ingredients you'll need:
  • 1/3 cup of white chocolate chips (if you are not a big fan like me, you can add less or use a drop of vanilla instead.)
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 4 tablespoons of multipurpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of backing soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of oil
  • 2 oreos

Procedure:
  1. Add the chocolate chips  and milk to the cup, and microwave it for 20 seconds, stir and place it for other 20 seconds, stir again until they are completely mixed. 
  2. Then add the flour,  baking soda, and oil, whip them together until you get a consistent mix.
  3. Break two Oreos and add them to the mixture, be sure to leave some chunks, so that you can feel the flavour in a better way. 
  4. Microwave for one minute or less. Let it cool down, be really careful, don't grab the cup directly, it gets really hot, let it rest for 3 to 5 minutes :)
  5. Finally, Enjoy!

So this is our recipe for today, I really hope you like it, I know you may have seen these on other places, but my sister and I just wanted to give it a shot, and make our adapted recipe. I really hope you enjoy it. 
Have a beautiful day!
Love, Monica
