The bandwagon

Saw the fun rag jewelry on Tanya and Leslie's blogs, so we had to make some too!


It was simple and inexpensive entertainment......FYI: if you've got a Hobby Lobby and a Michael's, buy your bandannas at Hobby Lobby (way cheaper, bigger selection) and buy them this week (on sale, even cheaper) cuz your kids will want one in every color :)


Instructions are on Leslie's blog :)


Heidi rec'd the summer round of F&S that I stitched her. I thought this design was cute and summery :)


Seaside Sunshine by
Erica Michaels, freebie found here
fabric: 32ct oyster linen
fibers: DMC variations

I've got a couple finished knitty projects to show you, but my model is still in bed. She better enjoy it, school starts in 13 days...

Aren't they fun to make? They're addicting - I know! Ben is still wearing his - so fun :o) I don't think there's a Hobby Lobby near me :( On sale? You're kidding! I love a good sale.
