On to the Tutorial

So I really love headbands and wear them all the time.  My latest project is a Turband which are Turban Inspired Headbands.  The thing I love about making things myself is letting my creativity flow by my choice of fabric’s or mixing up color options.  I was looking for a project that would allow me to use up some of my scrap fabric pieces and that would be quick and super simple.





The turbans are super easy to make and the video tutorial is very simple and easy to follow.  A big thanks to the Crafty Gemini for the video tutorial.

So let’s get right into the tutorial

Enjoy and happy sewing!!!!!


Glitter and Stripes

Ok so back in the fall of 2012.  I was in TJMaxx, looking for some cute tops for my daughter’s.  Which was a bold move on my part because I was shopping without them being present.  Which majority of the time  this is a no no.  All mom’s of tweens and teen know EXCATLY what I mean…lol.

Well  I saw this one top in particular that  looked like something my youngest would really like.  Turns out she LOVED this knit striped top with a heart and love written on it.  For $19.99


So of course I felt like such a proud mother for two reason…….she liked it, she really liked it AND…..I did not have to make a trip to return anything.

She loves the top so much that she wears it every chance she gets  Then it dawned on me to copy the pattern and make her a short sleeve version.

So I headed to Hancock Fabric’s because they were having a great sale.

So there on the clearance table I find a great Jersey Knit with chocolate brown and cream stripes and “GLITTER”.

I only needed 1 yard of fabric…..Total cost $5.25…….and it only took about 40 minutes from cut to finish and that includes interruptions….lol.
