Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Scrap Fabric to Fabric Flower Headband

Stashbusting September is almost here!  Hip Hip Hooray!  Stashbusters save the day!  I can't wait .. so in preparation for the real stash bust I have been racking my brains with ways to use the hundreds um thousands of pieces of crafting paraphanalia that I own.  So today I started small.. you know just some pieces of scrap fabric to make my daughter a sweet little flowered headband
because you don't have to go BIG to use your stash.. you just need a little creativity!
So here is how you can make one for you or someone you love.
Ingredients
Headband
scrap fabric
glue
stiffy fabric stiffener
Take your fabric and cut into into a looong strip, long enough to cover the outside of the headband.  I glued one end to the bottom and then wound it all the way around and glued to opposite end so it looked like this:
I made a little rose for the top of the headband by cutting fabric into a circle.
Then I cut it around and added some little curves to the outside.
Then I put it into my stiffy and rolled in into a rose.   Once it was dry I was able to bend the petals into the shape I wanted.
Then I cut some green fabric into little leaves and dipped them into my stiffy.
Then I pinched the bottoms and folded the top just a bit to give them the shape of real leaves.
Next I glued the flower and leaves to a small rectangle of the headband fabric.
Then I glued that piece onto the headband.
And gave it to my favorite girl to model!
