Gettin' Crafty

I've been busy at my sewing machine making some bunting/pennants for a friend. It's been taking more brain power than I expected so I was in need of a quick project to boost my "craft" spirits. So I made this cute wreath for my door:


It was pretty cheap too!! I spent $4 on the straw wreath (I recommend the next smaller size), $3 on the yarn and $1 for the felt (total $8). And it only took me an hour. It felt so good to finish something. Yay!! Oh, the color scheme was inspired by some ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby. I was going to go with green and blue but I think purple looks great with the lime green.


Now, back to the sewing machine, I have work to do. :) 

As with most things in the blogosphere, one thing leads to another. It started with Maggie at The Wonder Woman Diaries working on a wreath which was inspired by Danielle at Take Heart so I went over to Danielle's blog and was also inspired by her great tutorial. Yay to blogs!!

Great job, Jess! I got all the supplies when I spied this on a blog last week, but they are still in the bag. You've inspired me! I've got to get going on it. So cute!

I LOVE YOURS!!!!!! This makes me want to add purple to mine. So cute. I love the pearlized pins in the center too.

I'm still laughing about how you found this... are you sure you saw a photo of mine???

Remember when I commented over a month ago that the materials for this wreath were still in the bag? Be proud of me. I finished it tonight. FINALLY!
