Yesterday I showed you the crayon nametag I made for back-to-school night for Isaac’s teacher. Well I didn’t want the nametag to sit in a desk drawer all year. So I made a school wreath to display the nametag. When a teacher wants to wear it she can just take it off the wreath. While she isn’t wearing it she has a wreath to display in her classroom.
I don’t know many crafters who don’t have a stash of fabric scraps somewhere. Some of them have much bigger stashes than others ( I won’t name any names…we know who we are), but the feeling of being unable to throw away such pretty pieces of fabric–no matter how small–is mutual. Here are five fun ways to upcycle fabric scraps–or just to get an excuse to collect lots of pretty fabric–with projects for around your home. Enjoy!
Next week, we have a big event coming up here in America. It’s America’s birthday, otherwise known as the 4th of July! You know I love to show off my American spirit with crafts and other patriot-themed projects. I just didn’t realize how many red-white-and-blue crafts I’ve posted over the years to celebrate life in the US of A….until I started rounding them up this morning. Just in case you need a few ideas for joining in the celebration of America, this week, here are 10 Ways to show Your American Pride made by myself and my talented contributors. Enjoy!
