I cannot wait to get my journal back and see the lovely art that the other ladies have done! I'm sure I will be super inspired!

Scarf Headband DIY

We have a bunch of patterned scarves that a friend gave us just waiting to be used as projects, like this scarf headband. I don't like to have anything touching my neck (not even necklaces, I'm weird, I know.) so I don't wear scarves very often. They are a fun material to use in sewing projects though.

I whipped up this fun, boho style headband and I'm sharing a tutorial if you're interested in making your own!

Supplies: Patterned Scarf, Sewing Machine, Elastic Scrunchie, Needle and Thread.

1. Cut a 9" x 23" strip from a fun patterned scarf.
2. Fold your scarf in half and stitch down the long edge, Flip it right side out so that the seam is on the inside and you have a tube.

3. Use a needle and thread to cinch one end up to about 1". Tie off the thread, Repeat with opposite end.

4. Fold one end of your scarf over your elastic and stitch it down so that the elastic moves freely. Repeat with opposite end of scarf, looping it through the elastic and stitching it back down on itself.

The scrunchie makes the headband stretchy so that it fits pretty much any size head. :) I think it's a very bohemian style headband, perfect for Spring!

Make it Monday

Hey guys! How was your weekend? Mine was super busy- I worked our very first festival for my family's new business! It was fun, though I didn't get any crafting done.

I've got some fun crafty plans for the week, and right now, these are inspiring me:

Make an Embroidered Paper Bin using this tutorial.

If you crochet, stitch these cute Fabric Coasters with this pattern.

Learn how to make Macrame Strap Bag using this DIY. (I know my sister, Taylor, will like this one.)

I love this Multi-Pocket Gardeners Apron. Get the tutorial here.

Free Motion Quilting + GIVEAWAY

Today I wanted to tell you guys about this awesome new thread I've found and give you the opportunity to win a spool!

I don't have an embroidery machine, but I like to play around with free motion quilting every now and then and this thread is the best I've found. Trying to do free motion with cheap thread results in birds nesting on the back, missed stitches and broken thread.

I tried out this thread by quilting these fun spring flowers. There were no tangles (bird nesting) on the back of my material, and it didn't break at all! Amazing! Here is a little bit about Isacord Thread, also, scroll down to enter to win a spool!

Isacord embroidery thread is the thread of choice for maximum productivity and the highest quality embroidery among the largest embroidery houses. At nearly twice the strength of rayon thread, Isacord Thread is the smoothest running and most reliable thread produced. It has been engineered from the finest raw materials to provide just the right amount of elasticity to allow for high speed running without looping or puckering while virtually eliminating thread breaks.

I've got an extra spool of black thread that I want to give to someone! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter!

I Love Lucy Mini Album

Taylor and I have been Lucille Ball fangirls for years. We used to watch I Love Lucy all the time, (and we may or may not have done a couple of our own spoof videos.) so needless to say, we were super excited when we heard that "I Love Lucy - Live on Stage" was going to be in town at the Bass Hall.

We went to see it (which it was amazing, btw), and instagrammed a few photos while we were hanging around the Bass Hall. I decided to make this fun little mini album using those photos and a few cut-outs.

Do you Love Lucy? :)
