I love DIY'ing

You got that right, I love myself a good craft! I had seen a few tutorials all over blogsphere for fabric flowers and wanted to try it for myself. I was already making another blanket for a baby shower present, and I thought the fabric flowers would be another great gift.

To make the flowers, I used this tutorial to make the fabric flowers and this tutorial to make the flowers into a headband for a friend's newborn little girl. The tutorials are so easy to follow and took me less than 30 minutes to make the headband.

Here is how it turned out:

The blanket that I made. I love this fabric! It has little apples all over it, which I thought was appropriate because her dad is a teacher :)
Unrelated to diy'ing, it has been gorgeous here lately! I went out for a bike ride after work tonight in shorts and a tank top, which was fabulous! I think the weather feels really nice because we've had such crappy weather lately until the past week or so. So not ready for winter and snow!


  1. It has been nicer lately than it was all summer! I hope it's this nice on Sunday for Pumpkin Picking!!

    And I want that headband. I love all your DIYing.

  2. You're SO CRAFTY! You should start an etsy shop :)

  3. Good for you! I may hire you! Amen to this weather! Love it!

  4. I love the headband...I was making something similar this weekend but with felt!

  5. You are so crafty! I am terrible at stuff like that... It would take me 3 hours, not 30 minutes, to make those fabric flowers, and they would still look awful I bet!!
