DIY | Be Makeful E-Lessons

Earlier last fall you may have heard a few ramblings on our social channels about us filming in our home with the Be Makeful team out of Toronto creating some fun DIY projects on video as e-lessons.  Today, we're excited to share with you their site ( and three of our e-lessons that we filmed then. 

We'd like to introduce you to our three e-lessons, a tote bag and bandana (seen here), a lightbox headboard, and 3 small projects to make for the bedroom (a floor cushion made out of a couple of throw rugs, a faux sheepskin rug and a lino-block duvet cover).

Just in time for Mother's Day, we are also excited to offer a free promo code to access our e-lesson on making this "RAD" tote bag, as well as your very own personalized bandana(Get the promo code at the bottom of this post).

We had so much fun filming these videos and hope you'll enjoy them as much as we did making them!

Let's take a look!

The tote bag comes with a free downloadable "RAD" iron-on printable that we designed, which you could also print on a t-shirt or pillowcase too.

The bandana idea we made with a font we designed ourselves, which includes every letter of the alphabet, along with a couple of quotes if you wished to add a quote as well.  We think these not only make a fun gift idea for Mother's Day or Father's Day, but if you're planning a wedding, these would make awesome wedding favours or keepsakes! Or make one for your dog, (like we did for our dog, Roy)!

The bandana can be personalized by adding your own initials, or a different initial in every quarter. Add borders, or a quote.
