Independence Day

Happy 4th of July! For the holiday my mom needed a new wreath for our door so I found this wonderful tutorial and made it for her! Here is my version:

As for differences in the tutorial to mine I used foam instead of label paper and I ran out of blue so my last red section was much wider than the rest. I packed my squares much tighter than I think it was called for but it still turned out very nice I think. I pinned the ribbon on the back but I think I'm going to hot glue it for a more permanent hold.

Happy crafting!

Ballerina's Dream

So my sister's birthday was a little while ago. Being the kid at heart she is, and a tinkerbell loving girl, I decided to make her a tutu. She has always wanted one that she could run races in and bike in during rides and such so I made it my goal to make her the most amazing tutu ever! Here is the result:

That is her friend Pia on the left. She was so excited when I dropped it off at the camp she was a councilor at. Her friend's liked the end product so much that they wanted one too! Two of the girls have birthdays around the same time as her so they asked for them too!

Gold, green, blue

Orange, red, pink

I think they really liked them! I have a ton of tulle left and a ton of elastic left so if anyone wants a tutu for themselves leave a comment!
