Flamingo Toes - Sewing, Jewelry, Embroidery, DIY and More!
Scarves are quickly becoming my favorite accessory. They are so cute and I love them all. Crochet, pretty printed fabrics, infinity scarves – they add so much color and fun to an outfit. Plus I love the extra layers since I am pretty much always cold. They can be super easy to sew up too – especially today’s 1 Hour Floral and Lace Infinity Scarf! You can decide you need something fun to add to your outfit and make this up before you head out the door.

Floral Flamingo Sewing Machine Cover - I’m so excited to show off my new Floral Flamingo Sewing Machine cover! I shared this a few weeks ago over at and I’m sharing it here today! Sewing Machine covers are great for keeping the dust off your machine when you’re not using it – and this one has some great storage pockets on the side too. They are perfect for holding your scissors, seam ripper, a measuring tape – all the little tools you like to have handy when you’re sewing. I used the new Rifle Paper Co line from Cotton + Steel for this – I couldn’t resist those cute little flamingos. To add a little decoration to the front I created a simple Flamingo Embroidery design, I think it looks sort of like a flamingo cameo!

The Idea Room: How to Make Leaf Skeletons I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this!

DIY Friendship Necklace As soon as Lauren and I saw this editorial in Flare Magazine, we knew we had to recreate these awesome, friendship bracelet-like necklaces. We promise they are super easy to make and the perfect way to pass the time during those long summer roadtrips. To make a 2-tone necklace, cut a long piece of rope and wrap two different colors of embroidery thread around its own bobbin. Tie a starter knot along with the two colored threads you are using, leaving at least 3 inches of slack, Tape down the slack to a flat surface or safety pin it something that will help keep it in place (feeling nostalgic yet?). Lay the color that isn’t being used (shown here in purple) in your left hand, along with the rope, and hold them taut.

J Crew Knock-off Tee I saw this cute little shirt the other day on JCrew. I thought I'd give it a shot. It turned out a bit different, but here's my attempt. 1) I bought 2 t-shirts for $4 each. One to wear and one for the extra matching fabric. I think these embellished t-shirts usually look best tone on tone.

DIY Box Braid Necklace The moment we saw Phillip Lim‘s Box Braid Collar Necklace, we were immediately overcome with a wave of nostalgia. Our memories of a neon, plastic box braid lanyard was suddenly transformed into a sophisticated leather jewelry component. Honestly, brilliant! Inspired by our fondness of Lim’s necklace and our love of utilizing hardware, we made our own interpretation of a box braid necklace.
