American Apparel Circle Scarf Knock Off (tutorial)

American Apparel Circle Scarf Knock Off (tutorial)
My friend was wearing this super cute circle scarf from American Apparel and I wanted one!! Circle scarves, also called infinity scarves, are so popular this fall! I love the look of them! And they are so cozy and warm! The hardest part of making these circle scarves is finding the right fabric. I got this pile of fabric all for under $20! Super cute, right? And super easy!! I think for the scarf to look good, you need to have a really wide piece of fabric so that it is extra plush and voluminous. Once you cut out the fabric into a rectangle, fold the scarf in half so that the top edge is aligned with the bottom edge, right sides together. You can leave the edges raw because they won’t fray. These scarves are so versatile, too!! The American Apparel gave these other options on how to wear it, though I can’t imagine wearing it as a dress! (source) The American Apparel website also says that the scarf is unisex!! *Thank you to my friend J who took these photos of me! You might also like:

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!). 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." high on our success and planning the tutorial that would certainly be "my big break," i tweeted the following: here's how! what you need: oh, hi!

knotted jersey headband tutorial hey there LOVE STITCHED PEEPS!! it’s LESLIE from LITTLE MOOKIE back again with another fun tutorial, and while i’m a sewing contributor here, sometimes the best sewing tutes are the ones that involve ZERO SEWING! am i right? i’ve always wanted to learn how to tie celtic-ish style knots and this one was super cute so i started searching around for a tutorial and found this one. she used long crochet chains but i don’t crochet. so i figured, why not UPCYCLE something? what you’ll need:old tshirts – any color, combo (could also use fabric, rope, yarn, etc.)cutting mat & rotary cutter (plain ‘ol scissors would work just fine too)glue gun & gluemusic (i always work better when i can sing while i work) :) start by cutting your shirt just under the arms(you could also start at the bottom – cutting off the band and starting there) cut two 1″ strips(i chose to use different colors so you can follow along better, but one color is cute too) ready to go! getting closer… keep pulling gently… FINITO!!

T-Shirt Refashion: Jersey Necklace Sometimes I feel like I ride on the coattails of creative people. Back in January as I was surfing my favorite blogs, I came across this post on Ultra Vroom about cardigans and fabric necklaces. I instantly fell in love and had to have a fabric necklace for my very own. If I remember correctly, I wore that necklace for 4 days in a row. I love my necklace so much, I’ve been wanting to share it with you for sometime, but haven’t worked on the tutorial until just now. Materials: 1 XXL or XXXL men’s t-shirtScissors and/or rotary cutterSewing machine and or needle & thread Cut off the bottom hem of the shirt. Cut open one end of each strip. Sew coiled ends together. Once finished braiding, sew ends together to make three separate rings of fabric. Cut a 5 x 7 inch square of fabric from the remainder of the shirt, fold it over the three braids and sew. Voila! If you twist the loop twice before doubling over, the necklace looks like this (above). P.S.

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. Instead of scoubidou string I used strips of fabric for one and leather - what did you think?!- shoelaces in offsetting colors for another one. I believe both resulting bracelets look really nice. So, in case you 're in need of a fun summer project here's a how-to in 16 pictures with a short description below. This is what you'll need for an adult size leather bracelet. - a 52cm long strip of fabric or leather shoe lace - a second strip of fabric or leather shoe lace of approximately 95 cm - a big-eyed needle - a cylindrical object to hold the loop so your project stays put while braiding (the neck of an Elmer's glue bottle works just fine; when out on the beach, the finger of a helper's hand might do the trick as well) Steps: 1.

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. (Or you may need one for working out. I kinda love it on my little girl . She always has little hair fly-aways that get into her face…….and this helps with that problem. It even works great with her hair down…..and keeps that hair tucked behind her ears. And yep, good for me too. Thanks little t-shirt scraps. Want to make your own? First, find some old t-shirts. Then, cut your fabric into long strips. Next, stack your 5 strips on top of each other and sew together at one end. Now, pull on each strip of fabric so that they kind of curl on the edges. But let me explain a little better. First, you’ll work on the left side. And that’s it. This post is sponsored by:

V and Co how to: jersey knit bracelet i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach...as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home. *sigh* okay... *cut off excess tails!
