Let’s Propagate Some African Violets?

It’s so simple that even a child can make it!

If you are like me – I’m a crafty person, I love to cook and gardening too – You’ll love this post!

So today, I’ll show you how to propagate the african violets! They are very easy to take care and so beautiful, that I want them all around the house!

Let’s start?

Step 1 – Cut some leaves from the Violet!

With a scissors cut the mature leaves. I cut 2 leaves from each violet that I have

Step 2 – take 2 glasses and water

I always propagate my violets in glass containers and add half of it with water.

Step 3 – Cover the glasses with paper

Cover the glasses with some paper and tight them firmly with elastic or cotton thread.

Step 5 – On each hole add one leave

Add one leave on each hole – the leaves need to touch the water

Step 6 – Let them stand for 15 days

Let the glasses out of direct sunlight.

After around 15 days the roots will start growing!

So after you see the roots you can plant them in the soil!!!

My darlings! The Episode  13 is on!!!

The File Folder Covers are so BEAUTIFUL, COLORFUL AND HAPPY!!!!!

YOU CAN USE  FABRIC STRIPS – the ones you don’t know what to do with them!!!!

You can sew these beautiful covers for your kids , you can give as gifts or even sell them!!!

It’s a simple idea but I’m sure everybody will love it!!!

If you are an artisan, show your work to the world!!! Not everybody know that you are an artisan/crafter, so don’t be shy and wear your products!!!

Watch the Episode so you’ll see how I make these covers and don’t forget to subscribe my Channel!!!

So let’s go over the materials?

  • Cutting mat
  • Rotary cutter
  • Ruler
  • Fabric for the front cover, lining and tabs
  • Interfacing (I use Pelon 809)
  • Heat and Bond Paper (No sew bond) but I like to sew because I think it’s prettier!
  • An iron that works 🙂
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Threads that stands out from the fabric and one that matches  with the fabric
  • Sewing machine
  • 1/4″ presser foot (on Bernina machines is the #37)
  • Ice Cream template 

Remember: take the measurements  of your own File folder, maybe it will be different than mine!

Open the folder and measure it  and DONT FORGET TO add 1″ in the high and in the length (please watch the Episode!)

HERE you’ll see the measurements of my file folder:

The size of my file folder is around: 20 1/2″ X 11 1/2″

So I added to it 1″ : 21 1/2″ X 12 1/2″ (cut 1 X fabric and 1 X interfacing 1 X Lining)

Because I sew some strips so follow you’ll see the measurements of the strips that used:

  • One strip – 7″ x 12 1/2″
  • One strip – 2″ x 12 1/2″
  • One strip 11″ x 12 1/2″
  • One strip 3″ x 12 1/2″

For the tabs cut :  8″ X  12  1/2″ (2 X fabric and 2 X interfacing)
