This weeks Design Team post for Artfull Crafts is Christmas stocking stuffers/uses for your scraps.
As a mother to two girls (10 and 15years), it can get expensive buying girly things for their hair. My daughter wanted to buy a hair clip for $4.95 during last weeks shopping. Instead, I bough a 10-pack of clips for a dollar less and made my own using some material scraps and a bit of bling from my stash.
...and some headbands. My girls are fighting over the white one, so I will have to reproduce that to avoid dramas on Christmas morning.
If you use pinking shears, it will stop your fabric from fraying, otherwise you could use some Stickles or Kindyglitz around the edges.
I also made a cute vintage pincushion using ribbons and laces from my stash, and a bit of calico that I had. It honestly took about three minutes in total to make, and would be a lovely gift for someone who sews.
Tomorrow I'm lucky enough to be attending a class with Jane Tregenza at Print Blocks. Jane is on Graphic 45's design team, and an extremely talented scrapper.
I'm also madly sewing costumes for my daughter's dance concert next Saturday, so may be pulling a few all nighters! Pretty sure I won't have time to post (or create), so I hope you all have a great week.
