My garden

Hey crafters! For a while I have been wanting a vegetable garden but never got around to it. So this year I decided to make one. My dad helped me make it. Here is what it looks like:
 My dad and I did this project together and it was super fun! My dad was responsible for the stone wall around the garden, isn't it beautiful? 
 I originally had the idea to create square wooden signs to mark the plants, but I have to say that my dad made each of the signs. I love how unique and beautiful they are. We found the distressed wood behind my house and decided not to just waste it. I love how they look!
These little babies were the first to grow. The radishes have cute little heart shape leaves that were so cute! I love my garden! Keep crafting!

T-shirt Scarf

Hey there! Sometimes in crafting, you just want an easy project that you can get done in one day. That is definitely how I feel a lot of the times. Pinterest has helped a lot with finding fun, fast crafts. Today I will show you how to make a scarf made out of old t-shirts. I actually had a friend show me how to make these...but i also found a pretty good tutorial here:
Here's how mine turned out:

Then here I am modeling it: 
There are so many different possibilities! You should try one!
See ya later!

Sweater to Pillow

Hey Crafters! Happy Valentines Day! I hope that your day has been full of love!! A few weeks ago I picked up this sweater for really cheap(not intending to wearing it) because I like the pattern on the sweater. I thought and thought of what I could make. While browsing through Pinterest I saw these really cute sweater pillows that I loved! So I decided to make one two! A few years ago my sweet brother gave me a heart pillow on valentines day and I loved it! It has gotten a little worn out so I wanted to make one just like it!
                          Here's the original
                          Here's the replica
Now I'll break it down for you
I first took a sweater and cut off the top and bottom so I just had a loop rectangle. Next I cut the loop so I now have two pieces like this.
Next I traced the original heart and made a template. And then pinned it to one side.(I added another piece of fabric under the sweater fabric so the stuffing wouldn't come out.
 Next cut around the template. Do this to the other sweater piece. Next put the two pieces together and sew around, leaving an opening.
Turn the heart inside out and start stuffing. After your pillow is plump get a needle and thread to sew up the opening on the one side! Now you have a cute heart pillow!

Keep crafting!
