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? (tell me i’m right, mkay?) 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? one of my best friends lost 55lbs last year and she gave me all of her clothes (yay for free fabric, eh?!) 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) ready to go! FINITO!!

Make Your Own Printable Word Art I’m such a fan of Pinterest and find myself pinning my favorites quotes from time to time. I got to thinking how easy it really is to create your own free printable word art with free online editing software. Not everyone has access to Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, or the skills to use them proficiently like many talented graphic artists. I know the basics of Photoshop, and work with it from time to time to make inspiration boards, but most of the time, I turn to the free and very user friendly software programs provided by Picasa that I’ve mentioned in the past.
