Hair Dos and How Tos

Braided Fauxhawk

I received a lot of requests for a tutorial on how I did my hair for the Britney Spears concert. It looks complicated but I’d say its difficulty level is about a medium. You have to, at minimum, know how to do a french braid, but I think this looks even cooler if you know how…

Five-Minute Shoe Bling

Annie saw shwings the other day and her mind was blown. I’ve heard from friends that they can be a bit of a tripping hazard on younger feet, so I told her I’d make her some shoe bling that was a little safer but still fun. I came across stiffened felt at my local Joann craft…

Easy DIY Crayon/Pencil Roll

I’ve been looking for a cute party favor to give out at Annie’s Back To School party, and I thought a crayon/pencil roll would be cute and functional. They’re great for school or for throwing in your purse to pull out at restaurants. You only need basic sewing skills (hand or machine) and the rolls…

DIY Pull Hearts On A String

I’ve been making little things here and there for my cousin’s wedding shower, and these paper hearts on a string are my current project. They look like simple strips of folded paper, but when you pull on the strings the magic happens. Annie is absolutely obsessed with them (I can’t blame her, they’re pretty fun),…

No-Sew Leather Headband

At the beginning of the year I bought myself a pretty colored leather headband, and I have no idea what happened to it. I have my suspicions, of course *cough* Annabel *cough*. Instead of tracking down another headband, I thought I’d make one. It’s one of the simplest things I’ve ever made, and it looks…

DIY Ring Pin Cushion

Today is my grandmother’s birthday, she would have been ninety years old. My gramma, as I’ve mentioned in the past, was very talented with a needle and thread. She was a big quilter, and she was always willing to drop what she was working on to help me hem my pants (she said every petite…

No-Sew Doll Cast

On Monday night we found out that my friend Tara’s three-and-a-half year old daughter, Molly, broke her arm and needed surgery. Luckily, her surgery went smoothly and she was discharged from the hospital the next morning. While there’s never a good time to break a bone, summertime certainly has to be the worst. Because she needed…

DIY Cover Up

Annie loves the hooded towel I made her, but she needed something she could wear to/from the pool or beach that kept her warm while giving her a little coverage. I searched around for a simple cover up that would also help her dry off, but didn’t find anything that I was wild about. I…
