Last summer we used our tent trailer a lot. It was wonderful to get out a camping so much, and since it was our first summer with the trailer it was also nice to figure out little tweaks, or hacks, we wanted to make. Immediately, I knew exactly the first thing I wanted to do. The cushions for our dinette would NOT stay in place! I was constantly having to pick them off the floor (and sometimes us up off the floor too).
I think most of us don’t usually fit into clothes off the rack. Well, maybe we fit IN to them but they’re not going to fit perfectly. For me, I have the hardest time with jackets. I think I’ve never found one that fits directly off the rack. Broad shoulders, long waist, small chest = impossible. One trick i’ve used is to add a hidden snap to the lapel to make the jacket lay better.
Today I thought I’d share a craft that is so easy and useful, you will be amazed! One of the homemade Christmas gifts I made for my family this year were lavender sachets. You’ve probably seen those little pillows filled with lavender that you put in your unmentionables drawer. Lavender is great for keeping away moths from clothes and other fabrics, similar to cedar. Plus, it smells great, and is useful – two of my favorite qualities in a gift!
