Ribbon and Lace Boho Style American Flag.

Just stopping by to share a little craft I made this week.

I wanted to make this flag since when I first saw one last year. There are lots on Pinterest and I just had  to make one this year. I found some red and white fabric scraps,left over ribbon, lace, ric-rac, bias tape, a scrap of denim, and other trims that were perfect for the project. Also, some white buttons and a dowel.

The flag is now hanging above the crates filled with cookbooks in my eating area.
I love my new flag, I am happy that I made it. A great way to use scraps of fabric and all those left over ribbons and trims we all collect.

I think it complements nicely my other patriotic items.  Hopefully I will be able to make a couple more patriotic crafts this year.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!

Spring Clothespin Dolls and Other Little Things.


Things are busy around here. I meant to post more often, but life gets on the way, and the housework also needs to be done.
With the end of school year approaching, we have lots going on. Tons of activities, volunteering, you name it!
Anyways, I made some clothespin dolls a couple of weeks ago.

I still need to get some flowers for her basket.

This little lady is holding a beehive.

This one is a Gardner.

And here is an Irish girl. They are all living in the cubby shelf, but they like to pose for pictures at the fairy garden.

Not much crafting going on, really. 
I am sewing some gifts for Brenda's birthday and other small items.

I made these Personal Progress folders for the Girls Camp silent auction at my Church.

Also, an Origami dress garland.

A while ago I made some tissue holders for me, Brenda and friends.
I started a new cross stitch project, but it will be a slow one. I just got new eye glasses, that will help. Also, I had to take my sewing machine to the be serviced. It does not like denim :)
That's all for now!
Have a good rest of the week and thanks for stopping by!
