So, yesterday I was making hair clips and today I had so much fun sewing!
Let me show you my little craft haul!
So the first project I just have to share is this adorable mason jar! Can't say who it's for, but it is filled with goodies. Have you guys seen this idea? You fill a mason jar with themed gifts, like a gift basket. And then you decorate it so it is too stinking cute to look at! It's like a gift basket but in miniature, so it works well for yummy treats, spa items, or tools, etc. Not so well if you are looking to put together a movie basket, though! ;) It'd be a tough call to fit a DVD in one of those things, but then again, they've put model ships in teeny tiny bottles, so nothing is lost ;)
Fabric and glue - who would have thought?
I kind of love that they turned out a little crazy...(the hair clips, not the photos!)
A tote bag I made! Ah, the pattern! I can't even stand how cute it is!
The front has a polka dotted slanted pocket in the front -
I used a thin, dark blue fold over elastic to edge the top of the pocket.
I got the idea from this guy: http://handmademommy.blogspot.com/2012/04/busy-bag-tutorial.html
And the pattern from here: http://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2012/07/easy-fat-quarter-bag-tutorial.html
I'm always wearing headbands to work out, but I have a hard time finding ones that absorb, look cute, and stay put! I have totally seen thick ones made of sports fabric at the store, but... 8 dollars is just too much to pay for one headband! So here is what I came up with! The dark blue is super absorbent sports fabric, the turquoise is pretty thick fold over elastic (that stuff is amazing!). And when I finished it up and it filled all its practical purposes, it just really needed a flower. :) You know how it is.
Hope you are having a good rest of Thursday - it is so nearly Friday!!!
As we used to say, TGIF!
