During the hottest days of summer, I love using headbands to keep my hair out of my face. The athletic headbands work best for keeping your hair away and staying put, but they look like you’re ready to go for a run. The fashion headbands look pretty but often don’t really hold your hair back. I wanted a cute and functional headband that would keep my hair out of my face, but that I could still wear out. So, I took the basic premise of the athletic headbands but turned it into a bow! It was super easy and inexpensive. I made mine in an adult size, but you can easily make it small for any little girls in your life.
While spending too much time on Pinterest the past few weeks I have noticed one craft trend that I did not expect emerging to the foregrounds, tassels. I have become surprised with all of the possibilities for these colorful additions. Whether it’s jewelry, home decor, or sprucing up old accessories and clothing, tassels are becoming a craft trend that I can full-heartedly get on board with.
This Fringed Yarn curtains uses tassels in a new and inventive way. An easy way to add color and some personality to any door way. I love the shape it creates, and that it gives the perfect excuse to buy more yarn.
The Fourth of July is just around the corner. I know I have celebrations to attend, and I bet you do, too. I wanted to have a patriotic shirt that no one else would have. I thought about the things I loved, which are pocket tees and quilting. So, I created my own American flag pocket tee. By following this tutorial, you can have a fun tee that shows off your love of sewing and America!
As summer sets in and the heat seems unrelenting, I am finding myself disregarding good hair days in an attempt to keep cooler. Long hair on a hot summer day often means a very sweaty head and rather than subject myself to the heat, my hair ends up in some sort of up-do. As someone who struggles finding the perfect balance between fashion and function I can say that DIY Summer Headbands make this a much easier task. As a current trend, DIY headbands are perfect for the summer season. Stay cute on the beach and accessorize your top-knot with these great ideas!
It is Farmers Market season around the country. I love fresh produce. It tastes the best! I always had trouble deciding what bag to bring to the farmers market. The produce is usually wet and dirty which stains my traditional green bags. I wanted a strong bag that could hold plenty of produce but wouldn’t stain. If you relate to this problem or simply want to make a wipe clean bag follow this tutorial!
