I was walking through Target a few weeks ago and noticed this little knit fabric headband that was not just braided together…….but woven. I decided they were charging way too much for something that could be made with t-shirt scraps. And that means free. So there you have it. A nice and easy project to give my bad-hair-day head some love. (Or you may need one for working out.

This is how I do cozy during the warm weather months: a down comforter (thrifted and washed in hot water) and a handily crafted duvet cover made with two matching vintage sheets (also thrifted). A patch of grass, some dappled sunlight, an absorbing thriller, and a long empty afternoon. Essentially, this is nothing but a big pillowcase, with short lengths of twill tape sewn at intervals along the open edge, and tied shut to keep the comforter inside.

Of all the headbands I've made, I think this is my new favorite. It's like wearing sweats on your head, without the dumpy look. It's so cushy and comfortable! And yes, I am wearing the shirt with the bottom cut off in the picture. Hey, I needed something to match okay? Make a t-shirt headband Make a t-shirt headband

I know on Wednesday I said I'd have this up "tomorrow", but it's still technically Thursday SOME places, right? That counts. Ok, so when we left off, we had finished the first pleat and first ruffle. Lets keep going. Grab your next strip. While lifting the ruffle away from the bag, pin your strip at the top left edge of the main body piece, and begin pleating.

V and Co how to: shag pillow V and Co how to: shag pillow *no animals or plants were hurt in the making of this project. *one really stupid person did get hurt in the making of this project, but she would like to mention that even though the needle swear words passed her lips. it's was a modern day miracle. i love how this pillow turned out. i made it in green for two reasons: 1. it's still kind of cold here, and still kind of brown...will be for a little bit longer so i wanted some GREEN and springy looking happiness in my home. 2. it's the only color of jersey i had on hand, and living in the middle of nowhere doesn't let me just jump in the car and go to a store that i can find jersey fabric at (which btw this fabric was found at jo-anns but i would suggest amazon if you can't find what you are looking for, that's where i get a lot of mine when i can't find stuff)

I'm sure you'll have everything you need in your stash to make one. ;) What you'll need: DreamPatch: Sewing Kit Tutorial and Giveaway! DreamPatch: Sewing Kit Tutorial and Giveaway!
Denim Sunburst Textile Art Here is one of my projects that was featured on Craftgawker a while back: Denim Sunburst Textile Art The process of making the wall hanging is very simple, yet very time consuming. I simply cut old denim jeans into small rectangular pieces of all different sizes. Most of the strips were thinner than 1 inch. Then I began to sew then one by one onto a fabric backing.

The truth is, Mike never wanted to be a grocer. The truth is, he wanted to be a doctor. His mother's cousin was the only doctor in their small town when Mike was just a little boy. Mike and his brother used to run wild in those exam rooms, terrorizing all the patients and trying to get just one good look at a gory wound. E TELLS TALES: tutorial: big bow striped pillow cover
