After lugging about 15 books back to the library, it occured to me that having a book bag would be a good idea. Something big, sturdy and bright so that I wouldn’t lose it! And then I happened upon this DIY - craft kismet!

A friend has a daughter who loves hairbands but doesn’t want to spend $10 on a new one every time they go to the shops! So she’s asked me to make some for her, but honestly I’ve been wracking my brain because when you add the cost of the hair band and all the trimmings, it gets closer to $10! So I love this tutorial on how to mak a felt bow - so sweet on a hairband and I can make them in colours to match her different outfits. Time to get the felt box out!
so cute! i love the stitched details…
I have seen some adorable DIY projects over the years, but this might be one of my favorites. If you needed more proof that Kate of Scathingly Brilliant is one of the cutest and craftiest bloggers out there, this definitely it. Let your creativity fly with this easily adaptable how-to! These may be cat inspired, but I think I might see some Winston cap toes in our future!
