Put Up Your Dukes: braided scarf tutorial

Put Up Your Dukes: braided scarf tutorial
i have a tutorial that is forty thrillionty times easier and better than my previous (ahem, first ever...give me some grace!) tutorial. it is accessible to infinitely more people (you dont have to have a baby, OR a dress to start out with). and it is really simple. there are only 4 lines of stitching total. oh, did i mention it's mega cute and chic also: 5 weeks ago i saw this scarf on pinterest. it was pinned by a VERY popular pinner that i follow under her DIY board. i knew i had to make one for myself. but when i followed this "DIY" link, it actually led to a german store where the scarf was 35 euros ($60 shipped!). no DIY tutorial = no thanks and bum out! LOVE these colors. must make a yellow and gray one for me. source the more i thought about it, the more i wanted this, and wanted it CHEAP. i said out loud in our living room, "i am GOING to figure out how to make this for myself." the other (now massively popular and pinned, woe is me!) here's how! what you need: oh, hi! that's it!

Colored Mason Jar Tutorial Today's DIY project is painting mason jars your favorite color! I made mine turquoise. I love mason jars!

{she made it} jersey weave sweatshirt did you all have a good weekend? we pretty much got snowed in so during nap time I thought i'd scratch this little diy off my to-do list... This was the inspiration for this diy. i've had it pinned on pinterest for an eternity. so when I came across $3 sweatshirts at wal-mart the other day i felt like it was just meant to be. i resisted grabbing more than two (i am so bad when it comes to good deals) brought them home and gave them both a good wash and dry. the other one is white and i already have something in mind for it... like it? would love it if you pinned it :) For more fashion DIY posts simply click HERE.

Tutorials for Recycling T-Shirts - StumbleUpon So way way back, in June, I wrote this Studio Organization post, about starting the process of organizing my studio by cleaning out the closet full of junk. Well, it's September and...let's just say the closet is a work in progress. Some of the things that are taking up space in the closet are shirts that I never wear anymore. rolled paper flowers {tutorial} Welcome to flower week – five days of simple and delightful flower projects. I could probably do three weeks of flowers because there are so many different ways to create them, but I’ve limited it to five of my current favorites. Before we get started, let me make a few disclaimers: 1. Homemade Mother's Day Gift - StumbleUpon Have you noticed that silhouettes are all the rage these days? I see them in magazines, on blogs, books, and the TV. I’ve priced them out a few times, only to be disappointed by how costly they can be.
