Cutout Owls Giveaway Contest

I made a valentine tree out of twigs I found outside. I spray painted them a champagne color. Yesterday I made some cone decorations for it along with some red owls that I cut out from red card stock & glittered. I have 6 owls you can purchase in my Esty shop. Or post a comment for a chance to win a set of 6. I'll pick a winner on Thursday morning (Jan. 29th). These owls can be used for scrapbooks, cards, or other craft projects.

Fairy wings t-shirt tutorial

Step 1: Choose some fabric & tulle fabric. You won't even need 1/2 a yard of each for this project.
Step 2: Using this pattern (PDF file download), cut out one wing.
Step 3: pin wing to 2 layers of tulle fabric, then sew a zig-zag stitch around the edge.
Step 4: Cut about 1 inch around the tulle following the shape of the wings. I found it's easier to cut the tulle wings out after its been sewn, then before. I had a hard time keeping it lined up evenly when I tried cutting the tulle fabric out before sewing.
Step 5: Pinch the wings in the center & pin.

Step 6: Align the pinched wings to the center top of a t-shirt or tank top. Hand sew the center of the wings to the shirt, along with a few stitches at the top of each side of the wings to hold them in place.

Step 7: Add a flower, heart, or embellishment to the center of the wings. If you don't like the flower Idea, you can just use a rectangle piece of fabric, as shown in the sample below.

I think it would be fun to make some bumble bee wings on a yellow & black striped shirt, or use some red & black polk-a-dot fabric to make some lady bug wings. Be creative! My kids LOVE their winged shirts. For best results, hand wash.

Step 8: Add a matching embellishment to the front, if you like.

I've been tagged

I've been blog tagged by Kiddlebug.

I am supposed to tell you 7 random things about me, so here goes:

1. When I was little I craved Cristco with sugar sprinkled on it. I usually ate a spoonful after school.
2. I love the smell of tomatoes that are covered with bug spray.
3. I'm a picky eater. I don't like potatoes, salad dressing, or most sauces.
4. I love being silly.
5. I love to travel, but I don't like to sleep in hotels, I wish I could sleep in a tent in NYC.
6. I love celery.
7. I secretly like the Backstreet Boys, NSync, & Britney Spears.

I'm tagging:

& anyone else who wants to be tagged. (I'm not very good at tagging people.)
