With the Kentucky Derby just around the corner, the girls and I could think of nothing cooler than decorating our very own hats for our Derby party! Check out the shenannigans and get some tips on hosting your own hat decorating party…
While we’re on the subject, making a hat from scratch would be cool, wouldn’t it? Check out our new Intro to Hatmaking class!
Shortly after Ryan the Gabbart and I got married, I needed a change. No no - not a change of heart or home, a new ring. Mine was pointy in places and not super comfortable to wear (although pretty). I wanted something simple and easy. Something recycled and easy on the Earth (and it’s people!) Enter Green Karat, a wonderful jeweler located right here in Texas!
Fast forward 4 years later and I’m looking a change again. Something like before, but different! Well what else do I see on the Etsy homepage today than singleBbeautiful’s simple and beautiful rings. Great price and wonderful, sustainable design? Jackpot!
So my recent adventure into the world of origami didn’t turn out as planned, but I have not given up on crafting. In the spirit of being green and sticking with paper crafting I decided to venture into the world of stationery making. This month I made newspaper stationery. It was super easy and a great way to recycle newspaper.
I found these awesome envelope templates from a company called Paper Source (http://www.paper-source.com). Simply trace, cut, fold and voila! You have your very own hand made stationery—perfect for notes, invitations or anything you need.
Next month I will put down my paper and step into the realm of sewing. Join me for my first ever Sew Crafty Houston sewing class with Sarah Gabbart. For more information just check out our classes at http://www.sewcraftyhouston.com.
Until next time, happy crafting!
I’m a kit girl. Even though I have a huge craft closet at home and a kind-of-huge craft closet called Sew Crafty, I still buy kits. Why? I have no idea - they are so cute in their package, so promising with their supplies all neatly packed in there. The photos are so hopeful with all the cool stuff you can make with said kit. Which is why it’s hard not to buy everything in the Kit and Caboodles Etsy shop!
Hey there! I’m super excited about something totally new: the Sew Crafty Craftcast! I’ll be bringing you tutorials, field trips and all kinds of goodness - like today’s quick look at how to hem your own jeans! Check out a printable tutorial to go with the video here.
Coming soon: a much better camera!
