February 2013 Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

Welcome to February's Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  If you are hoping along in order, you've just come from Jennifer's page...aren't her projects great?!??! 
I will admit, I was a little stressed out about this month's theme...FABRIC!  I do not sew.  I don't even own a sewing machine.  All I could think was "what am I going to make???".  Thank goodness for Pinterest and all of the great no-sew ideas people have pinned :)  I found a fun no-sew headband and thought I would give it a shot.  Come to find out, it was super easy and a lot of fun to make!
I ripped strips of fabric and braided them together to create the headband portion.  The rosettes were made using the awesome instructions included with the Jumbo Sticky rounds.  All of the pieces are held together with hot thread, no needle, not one single stitch!  I will be making more of these for sure!

I tried to talk one of my boys into modeling this for me, but had no takers, so you are stuck with a picture of me! I set rosettes off to the side of the headband, which can be worn on either side. 
Supplies Used:
Tea for Two Designer Fabric, Hot Glue, Felt, Elastic Hair Ties

I had a few pieces of fabric left over, so I decided to put them to use on a card.  What a fun way to dress up a simple card!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze
Ink ~ Whisper White Craft, Calypso Coral
Stamp Set ~ Oh, Hello
Other Supplies ~ Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit (flower), Tea for Two Fabric, Oval Framelits, Decorative Label, Delicate Designs Folders

Thanks for hoping along this month!  Now hop on over to Diana's blog to see what she has in store for you!  If you get lost, just click on the link below and you'll get back on track!
