DIY Infinity Scarf

The  Fat Quarter Shop Project Remix A scarf in the Summer! Yes! It is super soft, lightweight, and brings color to your day! Tutorial by Crystal of Hello Creative Family  30 Minute Infinity Scarf I am doing a one month challenge of only using Sewtites  (No pins or clips) and they worked perfect sewing the end together! The pattern is great for beginners and does not take very long to complete! It only took me 30 minutes to complete. The Fabric Pick a fabric you think is gorgeous,  that you don’t want to cut all up and sew back together.   It is perfect and stands out all on its own! I bought this fabric over 2 years ago second hand.   I knew it was vintage and prewashed.   It is a vintage lawn that we figured out.   Who made it nothing positive. Looks like, feels like, but couldn’t find it in a database of Liberty. It is 2 beautiful yards of Vintage Lawn and so soft! Share with  # DIYinfinityscarf This project is easy to make, perfect as a gift or for yourself.  Be sure to share your

Meet Friends

The point of social media is to meet new friends!  But how often do we actually go out and meet someone  we talk to daily on social media. This is my wonderful friend Leona!  I talked to her on Flickr, her blog, and Instagram for about 5 maybe 6 years.  I can honestly say it was so different to meet her in person.  It has changed that friendship into something greater.   I am so happy we went a couple of hours out of our way on vacation to met her and her son.  Best trip just for a conversation in real life and a few hugs. It will last me until next time.  When I will make a point to add her to our trip! I also caught up with a quilt shop owner and friend Karen! My sister in law took me to her shop 2 years ago while we where visiting her.  We kept up a friendship on Instagram. Karen owns Fabric Smart in Gulfport, Florida! Her shop is a Modern Quilters Dream! She has all the latest and greatest! She also has on hand everything to make clothes, bags, and all kinds of sewing projects.  Cl
