DIY Hair Tie Tutorial with 3 Free Printable Tags and Free Template

DIY No Snag Hair Ties

 

I’m sure you have seen these no-snag hair ties at stores like Anthropologie, Sephora and Claire’s. They are great because they won’t cause breakage to your hair or leave big dents in your hair like regular hair rubber bands. They are made of fold over elastic, which is gentle to the hair and this type of elastic comes in so many fun colors, prints, and textures. I saw some of these hair ties at my local bookstore the other day for $11 for a 4-pack. It costs pennies to make these yourself, plus they are quick and easy to make. You can also attach beads or flowers to jazz them up or just leave them plain. If you scroll down, you can see a hair tie that I made for my daughter with a pretty silver, rhinestone-studded flower attached. They also double as a bracelet until you are ready to put your hair up in a pony. I made this pretty blue set for my good girlfriend and exercise buddy. We go walking together while our kids are at school and I know she will love these for walking and biking. I used the printable template to make a pretty card to hold this set of hair ties, put them in a cellophane bag, tied them with some twine and attached a fun tag. [Read more…]

Sewing Machines and Supplies for Tweens and Teens

Sewing Machines and Supplies for Tweens and Teens

Sewing is a great life skill and if your tween or teen is showing interest in learning how to sew, they would love to receive a machine of their own to learn on. I bought my daughter her first machine at age 11 and, with a few classes, she learned how to do lots of fun, simple projects on her own. There are a lot of machines that are marketed to kids and while they are affordable, most break easily and are a waste of money. There are a few highly-reviewed starter machines that are under $100 and a several that are just over $100, with a variety of great features. We found some great solid machines that will make learning to sew easy and fun, not frustrating. There are also lots of great sewing supplies that your tween or teen will love so they can start this fun new hobby.

My daughter started off with classes at our local Joann fabrics store.  They offer sales on their classes and you will receive a list of supplies, plus one of their coupons. One of her first projects was a pillowcase and they she branched out to a simple pair of PJ shorts, a pair of PJ pants, an apron and more. You can also check out if your local community center has classes as well. If your sewer prefers to venture out on their own, one of our best finds was the simple sewing patterns offered at Walmart stores, in the fabric department. They offer a variety of beginner patterns for just $1-3. There are patterns for purses, bags simple clothing, doll clothing and more. My daughter loves to save her allowance money to fund her next project and I love that she is learning a new life skill. Sewing projects are perfect for staying busy on weekends and over Summer break.  [Read more…]

Cool Clothes for Boys – Easter

I’m always looking for stylish Easter clothes for boys as I have two boys to dress for the holidays.
