Happy Monday! Another weekend gone by, but well spent. On Friday night we went for a walk and a movie date with friends, then had a relaxing day at home Saturday and then yesterday morning my hubby and I did yard work. So to treat ourselves we decided to spent Sunday afternoon strolling along the lake after a coffee date followed by an amazing dinner of all-you-can-eat-sushi!!! After a long days work, it’s pretty
disgusting astounding how much sushi a full grown man and a pregnant lady can really eat. haha we won’t go there….
It’s mini dates with my man that I am truly cherishing right now. We know that in five short weeks we will be welcoming a new addition to our family so we are taking full advantage of all the one on one time together that we can get. We know that with a new baby our time as a family will change, but we also know the importance of taking the time to reconnect with each other to keep our relationship strong. But in the meantime I’m loving having him all to myself.
Time for the crafting! I thought this would be a great diy to post as the perfect solution to getting through these last few hot weeks of summer! I made several of these headbands. Some for the beach, working out, washing my face, or when I want a cute spin on a regular ponytail day. All you need is an old T-shirt (or any fabric that has a little bit of stretch) and a sewing machine or hot glue gun! It’s soooo easy:
Cut two horizontal strips from the bottom of your t-shirt. (cutting through both layers about an inch and a half wide)
Pull gently until the pieces are stretched out.
Lie the first piece down on a surface like this.
Lie the second piece on top like this.
Tuck both ends of the top piece under the first piece like this.
The end of the top piece will go under the opposite end through the loop.
Pull all four ends of the material so the knot tightens up.
The ends of your material will probably be uneven like this.
Cut the ends even and lie on a small rectangular piece of fabric. I used a piece of flannel material that I had.
Sew back and forth across the ends to attach it to the rectangular piece of fabric. If you don’t have a sewing machine, a hot glue gun will also do the trick!
Wrap the rectangular piece of fabric around the ends and secure by sewing back and forth with a sewing machine or use your hot glue gun! Ta-da! You’re done!
