i went over to michaels and i purchased a pack of paper and drew up a few templates in varying sizes

the paper i purchased was a rose colour pad with different shades of pink, my mistake was not to buy such a heavy weight paper but i wanted the colours so i knew i would endure the painful cutting of the scissors but i knew it would be worth it haha, i suggest a 80lb card stock… not a 110lb haha!

make sure you have a good amount of hot glue sticks on hand as one flower took about 3 or 4 full sticks

To learn how to make these flowers check out the tutorial below!

Sewing tutorial – Cross Body Water bottle holder

Hey guys! its almost summer where i am from and we will be frequenting the local zoo’s, theme parks and going on hikes! Its always my goal to make sure my kids get an obseen amount of water haha if you have kids you know kids just LOVE holding things… haha 😐 so without having them hold it whats the next best thing!? Strap it too them!

So i decided to make my own cross body holders for my kids cups, the cups i have for my kids are the Thermos brand which can be found walmart, toys r us and the contigo brand which can be found walmart or costco

This tutorial will have measurements for these particular cups but i will show you how to measure your cup to make a cross body water bottle holder for any size bottle

Download the PDF to view the pattern measurements and if you would like to print it out you can do that but it is fairly easy to replicate

Materials – Canvas Fabric

Optional D- Rings

Download FREE pdf here

you will need a Main fabric, a lining fabric (if using canvas do not stabalize, if using cotton stabalize)

cut 2 rectangles, cut 2 circles, for strapping cut 2 – 2 1/2″ strip of fabric, measure from the front of your waist over your shoulder to the back of your waist, add 6″ more for the D rings if you choose to add those)

Note* If you are doing a two tone bag split the measurement in half and add 1/2″ to each piece

Fold the fabrics length wise, sew down the raw edge to create a tube, attach the circle to the one end of the tube with a ton of pins, take your time and carefully line up the edges of the tube with the edges of your circle

When sewing the Main fabric of the bag use a 1/4″ seem allowance, when sewing the lining of the bag use a 1/2″ seam allowance this will allow your lining to fit nicely inside the outer piece.

This is how they should look, turn the outside piece right sides out and leave the lining inside out.

place the lining inside the outer bag, fold in the edges of the lining and the outer bag, if your adding D rings place 3″ piece of strap through the ring and sandwich it in between the two layers of fabric, if your not using a D ring then evenly space your straps inbetween the two layers of fabric

Top stitch along the edge of the bag aas close to the edge as possible securing the straps, if using a D ring slip the strap through folding it back on itself 1″ and sew to secure the strap to the bag





Make your own Floral Crown

Today i made this beautiful floral crown perfect for special events such as a wedding, communion, photoshoot or just to feel festive this spring!

The Materials you will need for this project are as follows

Wire Cutters
Ashland Tape
Ashland wire
Floral Bush

I purchased all my materials at Michaels 😀

Michaels Craft Stores, Inc.

I also used a glue gun to help make things stay in place but inst necessary if using the tape, if you are making an extremely full crown then glue gun is probably a must have

I have a video tutorial to show exactly how i did it linked below also

Step 1 – Measure your wire, mine measured about 26″ but depending how you want it to sit on your head or the size of your head it could be bigger or smaller, add an inch to your measurement for overlapping

Step 2 – Tape the wire into a loop with your Floral tape, use a long piece and wrap it around the wire overlapping it onto itself and making sure you cover up the sharp edges of the wire

Step 3 – Prepare your flowers, seperate the flowers from the stems trying to leave a longer stem on each bud, this might require some snipping of little plastic pieces, if you are unable to do this and your bud doesnt have much of a stem on the end of it then those would require gluing onto your crown Note** Large statement flowers have very large stems and would require gluing for sure!

Step 4 – Plan our your crown, using your tape place a flower and wrap around the stem to secure it to your crown, to see a video demonstration please head over to my youtube channel

and then Voila! your done! you can make it as full or as space as you desire! I made another beautiful full crown for a photoshoot for my niece!
