Another Necklace

If I could add fabric rosettes to everything that I own I probably would because I love them so much but I know not everyone must be as crazy about them as I am so I made a necklace with different “flowers” and here’s what I’ve got!

Yesterday I went thrifting with my mom and I found a grey piece of fabric at one of the shops and I immediately pictured one of the things I’d be making with it! 😉 The best thing about this necklace is that it is mostly hand sewn and all that is hot glued is the chain part of it.


I used this flower tutorial and I love the outcome! I can hardly wait to wear it!

Hope you’ve had a great weekend, my friends!!

I Love Birthdays!

This month has been full of birthdays in our family and earlier this week the little one informed me that her teacher’s birthday happens to be this month also and that “we should make her something”-meaning I should make her something and she should take it to her! 😉 I had made the bff, who happens to be a teacher too, this pretty wreath for her classroom door a few weeks ago. I apologize for the picture quality, I took those the flash off! >.<

And since lately my creative juices have been flowing in a very slow manner I decided to make something similar for the little one’s sweet teacher (for some reason she seems to like her a tad bit more than she’s ever liked any other teacher she’s had before) instead of coming up with something new.

We all know how much I love making these flower rosettes, anyway! (:

Her classroom theme is animal prints of all sorts and I had decorated a mason jar and filled it with cookies for Valentines day and the little one said she loved it so I figured I’d match it some since hopefully she will be hanging this in her classroom, as well.

I certainly hope she liked it as much as I enjoyed making it and at least half as much as I enjoyed seeing the look on my little one’s face when she saw it after I was done with it!

Happy Friday, my friends (and happy birthday if your birthday falls on this month too).

Adding Yellow to The Mix

I recently added aqua to my living room and I had followed this cherry blossom tutorial to make some yellow blossoms to add to my book page wreath. So I followed the same tutorial and made some more for these branches.

Then I decorated some clothespins with yellow and white scrap booking paper to hang pictures in a frame that I have in the living room as well.

I’m really liking how everything is coming together. Here’s one last close up of the clothespins! 😉

My Camera Strap Cover

After browsing Etsy, a few months ago, I fell in love with a couple of camera straps but they were as pricey as they were beautiful so I’ve been contemplating making my own camera strap cover since. However, I didn’t feel like sewing so-instead-I got out my nifty glue gun and got to work and here’s what I came up with in about an hour or so!

I used fabric remnants that I already had so I guess you could say this was free for me but I’m sure if I had to purchase everything, it would have cost no more than a few dollars. Next on my to do list is a camera strap cover with the lens cap pocket and that one will no doubt be sewn instead of hot glued!! In the mean time I will enjoy this cute thing around my neck as often as I can! (:

This second picture I had to take with my phone camera so it isn’t all that great but I just had to show what it looks like on my camera because I absolutey loooove it!! Fabric rosettes are definitely among some of the things that make my heart smile!! ((:

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you guys have a great weekend!!!

Rosette Necklace

Rosettes are my favorite flowers to make (and white ones-in particular-make my heart happy!). So, of course, I had to make a necklace with them!

All I did was take off the piece of the necklace that went around my neck and replaced it with a fabric strip and then added the rosettes to it. I pressed my rosettes with an iron before gluing them to the necklace and I really like the look that it gave them!

I love it so much that I’ve worn it a few times already!!

It’s already one of my favorite accessories!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you guys are having a great start of the week!!

DIY Flower Necklace

It’s a beautiful sunny day out there and before I head out to enjoy all that sunshine I want to share my little sunday project just in time for spring! (:

I found a piece of sheer fabric (Yes, you guessed it, at one of my favorite thrift shops) in this pretty color that is almost pink, I’m not sure what color it is exactly but I had a plain necklace laying around and I decided to make it pretty by making some burned fabric flowers and here it is all prettied up!

I didn’t have any felt for the back of my flowers so I just used some of the same fabric to put on them and it looks even prettier than felt would have, don’t you think?

Here’s what it looks like when I have it on but I made the pic black and white because I’m posing in my pjs and the color doesn’t match! 😉

I made some extra flowers and I had two left so I made the little one a headband and she is rocking it!!

I know the flowers aren’t perfect but that was intentional and I like how they turned out! I had some of the same fabric in white and i made a few flowers of both colors for another project that I’ll work on as soon as I get a chance. I’ll leave you guys with a shot of those beauties!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you guys are having an amazing Sunday!!
