Patriotic Turks Head Rope Bracelet From What Knot Shop As a child, we vacationed in Nantucket and Beach Haven, on the Jersey Shore. At the beginning of each summer, we’d slip on a rope “sailor” bracelet. We’d wear this bracelet all summer. In and out of the ocean, the pool, the softball field, the bracelet didn’t come off. It went on at the beginning of summer break and stayed on until the day before school started. Finally, on that last day of summer, our mom had to cut off the bracelet.

Starting out to make my own, I ended up cutting the fabric too short. My headband idea then began to tape shape in order to salvage the time spent on the project already. michael ann made.: woven friendship bracelet tutorial i love the summer friendship bracelet trend that i keep seeing in blog land, so i thought it would be fun to share with you another way to weave a friendship bracelet. one of the parents at work showed me this technique of using a circular cardboard loom and i love how quick it goes, you can easily finish a bracelet in one sitting. - cardboard - something small and circular (like a teacup or ramekin) - scissors, ruler, pen - embroidery thread in pretty colors , thin yarn, or ribbon

Re-purposing: Tshirts into 5-strand-braided-headbands 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. Summer bracelets DIY When M. came home from her camp with school, she showed me this yellow bracelet she made with 'scoubidoo' strings. One of her friends taught her how to make these and of course I wanted to have a go at it too.

Fabric Wrap Belt Summer is great for cool cotton dresses and flowy shirts, but sometimes they need a little extra color or a more defined waistline. Enter the wrap belt, inspired by an Anthropologie design! This fabric band wraps around your waist to give you definition and a pop of color. You can vary the fabrics in color or pattern, or even try a patchwork version. A Mason of One’s Own One thing that we get a lot of envy of over in the Land Beyond Beyond, are the beautiful little mason jars. These beauties are ubiquitous when it comes to the expectations that we have of weddings Americana style. But, well the closest that we come to here are the Robinson’s marmalade jars – which really don’t do it for us – we love the look and feel of the lovely Mason’s. They have this chunky solid feel that we just love. So, of course you could colour us happy when we happened upon the Pure and Noble blog (check it out there are a whole load of lovely finds up in there).
