How to Make the Easiest Pants Ever

How-to-make-the-Easiest-Pants-Ever-on-Pretty-Prudent

Whenever I’m on a full blown sewing kick, I like to have a few easy sewing projects I can just whip up in no time. These pants are one of my favorites because you can make them in any size, and customize them however you’d like – make them extra baggy for pajamas, add pockets, knee patches, a drawstring, and more.  If you’re a beginner at sewing, check out What You Need in Your Beginner Sewing Kit to get started.

Ziploc-Lined May Day Bouquet

ZIploc craft may day bouquet

We love the centuries old tradition of delivering a small basket of flowers or sweets to neighbors on May 1st. This year, in lieu of baskets, we created water-tight kraft paper cones with the help of Ziploc® bags. We can also picture these little beauties hanging on the chairs at your next garden party. The blooms will stay fresh for days right in their sweet packaging.

Here is how we made them with just a few materials that you probably already have at home.

Magical Matcha Green Tea Pop Recipe

Matcha Green Tea Pop RecipeI’ve been trying to reduce the amount of coffee I consume every morning. It’s only kind of working, but I have found that replacing some coffee with the grassy taste of matcha (matcha is a powder made of green tea leaves that have been finely ground) has been a fun diversion for my jittery self.

Matcha Green Tea Pop RecipeAnd, as you know, I love popsicles and have enjoyed making coffee-themed breakfast pops like these Pumpkin Spice Lattes on a Stick, so I thought I’d give matcha a try in pop form. I played around with the recipe and found that super simple is best with these babies. These are also dairy-free which is helpful for us IBS peeps.
