T-shirt Scarf and Felt Flower Brooch




Loving these super easy and totally cool t-shirt scarves!  They are so easy to make.  Here is a link to the instructions:
Jennifer has an easy to follow tutorial and they take only about 15 -20 minutes to make.
I then topped the scarf off with a felt flower and the tutorial for the flower is right here:
The only thing I did differently with this flower is that I cut out big circles and not the petal shapes.  But I followed the exact same directions and then added a little bar on the back with a pin with hot glue to attach to the scarf or to your clothing.  I found when I attached the flower to the actual scarf it flopped around too much, so I then attached it right to my little jacket and it stayed right where I wanted it.  I also hot glued on some faux pearls.  I can't wait to make some more!  I just went through our armoire where we keep all of our t-shirts and we have so many.  I have scooped several that we just don't wear anymore and I am going to use those to make some more.  I took some of George's, that were in the bottom of his shelves in the armoire, so hopefully he won't go looking for those anytime soon! 
I hope that you are all having a great weekend.  I have the Pittsburgh Steelers on in the background while I am crafting so I can keep up with the game.  Go Steelers!
Hugs and Pugs to everyone!

Another Felt Flower

I am loving these felt flowers!  So easy to make.  This pink felt is so sweet.  I have to find some light pink jersey fabric to make a scarf with to match.  Or white, or light green............oh the possibilities are endless!!!!!

Hello Again!

Hi Everyone!  Sorry for such a long absence.  There have been many things going on, quite a few illnesses, but all seems to be better now, thank goodness!  I haven't been crafting for a while because I just haven't had the energy, but the energy seems to be coming back now!  Maybe it is the wonderful, crisp and sunny fall weather that we are having.  Nice and cool in the morning and then sunny and warm in the afternoon, so perfect!
Here is a quick craft that I made with an old t-shirt and some felt.  I cut eight circles out of an old t-shirt using a 9-inch paper plate as a guide.  Then I cut each circle into a swirl so I had long strips of material.  I stretched each piece so that they would sort of curl along the edges and sewed four pieces to the other four pieces to get a long scarf.  I made the flower out of felt and then used a safety pin to attach it to the scarf.  I love this scarf because it is very light.  And you can detach the flower and put the flower on other things too!  Plus there is only one seam of sewing on the scarf and NO sewing on the flower, just hot glue.  Can you believe it?  I will try to find the tutorial and post it for both the scarft and the flower.
I hope that everyone is having a great Thanksgiving long weekend!
Thanks again for waiting for me to come back to my blog.  I sure missed it. 
Hugs and Pugs to you all!
