Sewing Mondays - Wide Fabric Headband


To help encourage myself to practice sewing as much as I can, I came up with "Sewing Mondays". This will be a chance for me to show you all the tutorials I have tried, my resulting product, and what I thought of the tutorial {I promise all comments will be nice!}. Maybe I will even become proficient enough to post my own tutorials! {Baby steps first, though.} To start out, I'll post a Sewing Mondays post every other week, but if I really get the sewing fever, maybe I'll post every week!


This week's Sewing Mondays tutorial is the Fabric Headbands from Happy Together:

DIY iPhone Covers



Chris and I bought iPhone at the end of last summer. Let me tell you my iPhone has. Changed. My. Life! I seriously do not know how I lived with out it! And as a blogger, it has really helped me with social networking.

Now that I have a iPhone, I've wanted to get a pretty case for it. However, I couldn't find anything I like {I haven't looked on Etsy, just local stores...Etsy could be dangerous : ) }. Recently I have seen a few bloggers make their own iPhone covers, such as Live Laugh Rowe did. She made a custom iPhone cover to brand her blog! I did something similar, but with fun designs instead of blog branding. Here is what I did:

Simply Create Thursdays #7


Hey everyone! Today is a great day because it is my "Friday"! I took Monday and Friday off of work this week. I am house/dog sitting for my parents and I thought taking two days off work would make it less of a hassle. {They live farther out then we do and I have my own pets!} So while my parents are in Florida, I get to watch their dog! I'm kind of liking my little "stay-cations" though... it allows me to get caught up on all my crafty ideas!

As it is actually Thursday, it's time for the link party!

Here are my features from the last party:

10+ Fabric Flower Tutorial



I love that spring and nice weather is finally here! The warm weather has given me spring fever and I'm loving flowers right now. I thought it would be fun to do a fabric flower round-up for some spring decor inspiration!

Monthly Recap {March 2013}

Welp, it is now April. I'm actually kind of looking forward to April. It means spring is really here and hopefully the weather will be getting nicer. Also, I want to have a garden this year and April is when I'm going to prep my beds... but more on that later. : )
