flower head bands

My friend had a baby shower so I decided to make some homemade gifts.
I love these cute flowers, I can't get enough.

For this one I started with a piece of felt cut into a circle and glued some tule to it.
Then I adjusted the stitch length to 4.5 to gather the fabric

Then you just wind it into a circle 
This time I'm just going to turn it over and apply glue (hot glue) all over the bottom of it then place it on the felt circle. 
There, that makes it clean, fast and easy. (you'll see the flower if I turn it over)
So I love it! and I just attached it to some white cotton that I made into a head band.
To make this one I just attached tule to the top of it and gathered it all together at the same time.

And here is a picture of how to gather in case there is someone out there that does not know how. You just pull the string after you have sewn it on the longest stitch length.

And while on my flower kick I made another flower necklace
I love it, it is so cute and I want it for my self but it's actually a special order from a friend of a friend!
I also made this white one so she could chose which one she likes...
And guess what?  She liked them both! I think this is the first project that I actually made and sold!
Woo hoo! but I can't quit my day job just yet.
Thanks for looking!
I will be linking to these parties...

sew many ways

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
