Bows, Rose, and Bracelet: Fabric Scraps Part 2

Hi guys,

I have a pair of jeans with a hole in the knee, so I’ve been looking for some good crafts to use them for.  So today I’ve got three denim crafts: the cutest little bow, a 3D rose, and a bracelet!  I made mine out of denim, but you could use any heavy fabric.

 

Fabric Bow:

So, here are the pieces I cut out.  They’re about the right shape…

Fold each side of the first piece over so the ends meet in the middle.

Place in the middle of the bottom piece and use a dot of hot glue to attach them.

Wrap the middle around and glue in the back.
  

And here’s the finished product!

 

Rose:

Cut a circle however big you want.  I think the bigger it is, the easier.  Make the edges all wavy.

Cut your circle in a spiral, still making the edges wavy.  Now you will have a long strip.IMG_2504

Starting at the edge of the spiral, wrap it around a skewer while keeping the bottom edge level with itself.IMG_2501

Once you are to the middle of the spiral, glue the end to the bottom like this.

That one is done!

 

Bracelet:

1.  Cut off the seam of the leg of an old pair of jeans.  Make it however long you want depending on how many times you want it to wrap around your wrist.

2.  I recommend running a few stitches over the ends so it doesn’t fray to much.

3.  Sew a clasp onto the ends.

4.  Sew some sort of decoration onto it.  I’ve seen some with seed beads, sequins, and buttons, but I chose to use a flower from one of my previous posts.

There you go!

I hope you guys like them, I had a lot of fun making them!

Fabric Flower: Fabric Scraps Part 1

Hello,

I have a few things I’ve made recently out of fabric scraps, and this one is super cute and easy!
Supplies

  • Button
  • Fabric scraps of various colors
  • Needle and Thread

Using your button as a guide, cut a circle slightly bigger than it.

Continue making circles, each slightly bigger than the one before, until your flower is as big as you want.

Sew the button in the middle to finish it off.


Isn’t it cute?  Have fun with this one!

Washi Tape Frames

Hello,

These are super cute frames that I used to put around art on my dry erase board.  A little hard to get straight, but they turned out great!

This one’s the hardest.  As you can see, some of the edges don’t meet, but it’s a good idea.

This next one is simple, but cute.  I just made a square and cut the corners off.

And this knees the most simple.  Just a square around the picture.

There you go!

Cyclops!

Hey guys,

Ok, so these are really fun.  My dad saw it on a TV show and decided to try it…  So, here we go!

 

First, crack an egg into a pan or as we do it, on our griddle.

After letting it cook a little while, pour some pancake batter around the egg.  We used a measuring cup.

image

Ok, now to flip it.  We use two spatulas and maybe a few grunts…

image

This is a good one.🙂

Hope you like it!

Washi Tape Clip

Hey,

Here’s a fun one for you!

First, cover the outside of your clip with you washi tape.  It’s hard to get it up to the edge, so I clipped it on something to make it easier.

For some color, I added a strip of blue!

There you go!
