Swap Shop, & Blog

I signed up for the Shop Swap & Blog event. It was a lot of fun. My swap partner was Bambu Earth. I received some wonderful Lime Coconut Body Polish along with some Chocolate Chopstick. They both smell so great. They came packaged so nicely too. Unfortunatly I don't have a picture of how nicely they came packaged, as my 2 year old destroyed it before I could make it across the room to stop her.
If you are looking for a nice gift for a friend or family member, be sure to check out Amber's shop and blog.

If you’ve tried to purchase a print or piece of jewelry from my shop the past few weeks. I was finally able to fix the payment buttons. I was stumped at why they didn't work until tonight my husband looked at it and was able to fix it. Hooray! Sorry if you've unsuccessfully tried to purchase something.

Newly Designed

If you haven't already, take a peek at our newly designed website. It's needed a makeover for a long time!

Fall Hat Tutorial

I had this $1.50 hat from Wal-Mart laying around. I also had some felt left over from my leaf garland (shown above), so I decided to make the hat a little more fun to wear.

1. Using the basic $1.50 snow hat from Wal-Mart, measure how it will fit onto your head, then cut off the excess area.
2: Cut some petals, little circles, & a leaf out of your felt. They don't need to be perfect (it's part of the charm.)
3: Place pieces onto the hat to get a general Idea of how you'd like your hat to look.

4: Stitch your pieces onto your hat. I used the left over gold floss from my leaf banner to stitch the flower onto my hat.
5: Finish your bottom edge. I plan to fishes the bottom of the hat off with a simple stitch using a thin yarn.

Autumn Leaf Garland Tutorial

1: Click Here to download my Leaves Pattern PDF file.
2: Print the file, then cut out the leaves.

3: Trace Leaf shapes onto felt. I chose felt in 4 different fall colors. I used a white pencil to trace the leaves onto the dark felt colors.

4: Cut leaf shapes out of felt.

5: Using an embroidery floss, stitch the leaf veins onto each leaf.
I used a gold colored floss which I thought was a little thick, so I pulled 3 strands out of the floss to make it easier to stitch. You could save some time, and use a gold glitter glue or fabric paint to make the leaf veins instead.

6: Decide how you want to place your leaves.
7: stitch leaves to a rick rack or ribbon.

8: Hang your new Thanksgiving garland and enjoy!
