Is this thing on?
Oh, hi there. Glad to see someone is still checking in here even though I haven’t updated in over a week. I’ve been a little busy doing some scholarly research about teenage vampires. That *cough* research has kept me from doing much of anything else including laundry, housecleaning, or crafts. Fortunately, my sister has the rest of my books so I can’t read any more until I get them back in my possession this weekend.
So, while I have a few spare moments, I wanted to share a few of my favorite finds this week. I always dreamed of making cute little dresses and hair accessories for my little girl and these crafty ladies are making it so easy for me. The best thing about all three of the fun sewing tutorials I discovered this week is that they all re-purpose old items to create something fun and new.
- These easy headbands from Maya Made are just perfect. Not only do they re-use old t-shirts, but you can custom size them. Store bought headbands never seem to fit me right so I can’t wait to make a few of these for myself.
- A Room Somewhere has a great tutorial for the popular pillowcase dresses. Of course using an old pillowcase gives more of a vintage look, but she gives directions to make it out of regular fabric too. I’m hoping to make a couple of these in a mini version for my baby girl next summer.
- Over at The Long Thread there’s a super easy tutorial for some adorable t-shirt dresses. I know a couple of little girls that would look very cute in them!
