My friend had her 40th Birthday this past weekend. She has started a campaign to bring back the scrunchie. An essential part of pony tails in the 80's and 90's. Thus far, she is the only teacher at her school wearing a scrunchie. For her birthday, I thought I would help her out. They are hard to find in stores these days, but I did find a tutorial at ikatbag. Then decided to make up a bunch. Here are some fabrics from the scrap pile.
Scrunchies are very quick to make up following the tutorial above and I had all the materials necessary (scrap destash!!!!). Once I made the first, it was hard to stop!
And ... I kept going.
I also wanted to get some green in my sewing area, so I purchased these little succulents. This will be my second attempt, as I killed off the first attempt. Over the past year, I have kept my school plants alive and growing. My aloe plant has survived the winter (last year wasn't good!) so things are looking hopeful. The plant below is called a "donkey tail" the name cracked me up so I bought it.
My mom used a mason jar for one of her plants so I copied the idea. The other two planters are just cheap terra-cotta planters I spray painted blue. The blue didn't cover the color completely leaving an interesting look with the orange coming though. It looked neat, so I went with the concept. My Mom also has a couple other succulents that would look nice in the collection, so those might end up missing next time I visit!
Sew long for now,
