Bohemian Headscarf

You've seen them on everyone from Nicole Richie to SJP.  Now AquaSeventy6 is going to help you rock out the Boho Headscarf.

My friend Jasmine custom ordered some elastic headbands from my collection.  But after breaking three needles and being on the verge of homicide I decided that now was probably a good time to discontinue the line. (Confession:  Every time I would get an order for an elastic headband I literally had to coax myself to get behind the machine. If it wasn't a broken needle, it was tangled thread.   I will probably re-imagine them with an easier to sew elastic, but for now they are history.)

After profusely apologizing, I asked Jas if she had anything else in mind, and she wondered if I could make her a bohemian headscarf.   I had never made a head scarf before, but I was super pumped for the challenge, and I'm thrilled with the way it turned out!

I pleated the part that goes on the head and left the ends loose.  I then stitched it across in sections for a quilted look.

I would have loved to have shown you some different looks with this head scarf, but alas, it is 102 degrees here today, and I had to run inside before dying of a heatstroke!  Not to mention that I was still sporting bedhead and morning face...thanks to Picmonkey's airbrush tool for helping me look less like the undead.  ;)

Neck Tie Diaper {and wipes} Pouch

Here is the newest item created for my soon-to-arrive twin grandnephews.

I was inspired by the diaper clutch tutorial over at A Lemon Squeezy Home. If you haven't stopped by Christie's blog, do it (but after you read this post, pin your favorite photos, and share it with all of your friends!) ;)

I added the matching neck tie applique pattern I used for my Neck Tie Burp Cloths but I changed the look up a little by using a football print in coordinating colors.

I used the same football fabric as the lining and added a hook and loop closure.  (Forgive the purple pull-up diaper.  With a 9 and 12-year-old at home, this was the only diaper I could dig up from the back of the bathroom cabinet---it was either this or an adult diaper--don't ask me why I have one!)

There is easily enough room for another diaper and a portable wipes case.  Perfect for tossing into your handbag for a quick trip to the grocery store!  I bet it could hold a folding changing pad, as well...hmmmm...I think I found my next project!!

This was so easy, thanks to Christie's tutorial

I will be adding more of my handmade items for the twins soon.  In the meantime, if you like what you see,  "like" my my Facebook page!
