I gave this a huge thought, you know? I know not everyone know how to sew, or have a sewing machine. I also know that not everyone has a cutting machine, so all the ideas you will find here are pretty easy to make and you don’t need to be so crafty to make them. You probably will need to buy a few supplies and follow the tutorials. As far as I can see these ideas can be made in a few hours.

Of course some need to be done in 2 steps that means over night, but still the total amount of time invested is not much and you can be doing something else in the meantime like in the case of a sharpie mug or painted mugs or painted anything. Other than that these ideas are pretty much super easy!
