another bow by me! giving this one to my fav cheer captain/amazing base <3

I got a few requests to do a tutorial, so here it is!
I&#8217;m not a professional bow maker or anything, just a high school cheerleader!
1. Cut 24in of a stiff, plain ribbon and 12in of each color of sequin fabric
2. Sew the fabric with a straight stich with the &#8220;right side&#8221; of both fabrics facing in towards each other
3. Open it up and it should look like this
4. Hotglue the fabric to the ribbon
5. Fold the bow like so
6. Cinch the center together and hand sew it
7. Hot glue another piece of fabric or a small ribbon in the center and tie it around a ponytail holder!
Hope this was helpful!

Its been a while, but its summer now and I&#8217;m soooo bored, so that means crafting!!
I found some leathery material in my parents closet so I looked up what I could make out of it! I came up with some pretty cool accessories!  The material was all black, so I just used acrylic paint to make it different colors!
Braided bracelet:
Its kinda tricky, so heres a tutorial and template for it http://melissaesplin.com/2011/06/magic-braided-leather-tutorial/

Bow cuff:
template here: http://melissaesplin.com/2011/03/diy-leather-bow-cuff/
just cut it out, sew the middle, and glue strip in the middle!

Feather earrings:
cut out a pointy oval shape
cut slits along the sides
cut out little triangles in little places along the sides
attach to earrings!

Glitter puffy paint New Years shirts!:)
I made these for my grandma, mom, and myself! 3 generations!:)
I took a black shirt, puffy painted &#8220;Happy New Years!&#8221;, and while still wet, sprinkled colorful glitter all over, then let it dry over night!
Happy Crafting and have a Happy New Year!

Chalk dyed my hair!:))
grab a section of hair, wet a piece of chalk, rub on hair, set with some sort of heat (curling iron, straightener, etc.)
Its safe for your hair and washes straight out!

Minnie Mouse ornament using felt!
I cut out two mouse heads out of black felt, sewed stitches along the edge, stopped right before I closed it completely, filled it with some scraps to give it volume, finished sewing it, and glued a loop and bow of red and white polka dot ribbon to hang it on a tree!
