Big, cozy, blankety scarves are just what a Canadian winter calls for. I love using scarves to really change up my outerwear anytime I'm running out of the house. And I can't really think of a better way to remain cozy and stylish all at once.
Blanket scarves are all the rage right now and I wanted to DIY a version that was fast and easy. This fringed trim is the perfect way to fit in with this seasons hottest trend!
The project can be completely in about 20 minutes and is soooo satisfying to make!
I hope you all enjoy this DIY :)
This hat came about with an intense desire to make a pom pom. I saw a pom pom and knew it needed to go onto something! And being a Canadian I figured the most appropriate thing would be a Toque. This is also a fantastic project to use up fabric scraps, comment below if you recognize this fabric ;)

Happy Pom Pom Making!
Pom Poms are among my favourite things and making them is so much fun! There are so many fun ways to use them. I put together this post just in case you wanted to a quick DIY on how to make them!
Take a coordinating coloured yarn and wrap it around your fingers. The number of fingers determines the width of your pom pom. I wanted mine to be nice and fluffy so I choose all!
Wrap the yarn until you have a good amount and slip it off your hand and tie it in the middle with another piece of yarn. You want to tie it as tight as you can to keep it all secured.
Cut the loops and trim all your fringe. I found that trimming was the key to creating a lovely pom pom. Also the more you handle it the more the yarns separate and create a beautiful fluffy pom pom.
This knit cowl neck dress actually came about by a happy accident. I was making Annie a little sweater dress and I cut the neck too low. It an attempt to correct the situation I decided to put a cowl on it and loved out it turned out!
At the moment I'm only putting up a Toddler Size 3 pattern, when I have a spare minute I will be including a full size range for kids.
Also if you're wondering did I bribe her with a cookie to make her stand still for the photos? Yes, Yes I did. Did it work? No, No it did not.
I was recently browsing online and saw these lovely leather totes that are so fashionable nowadays. It was a designer label and was priced around $500 :/
Not really in my budget.
I picked up some faux leather on sale at my local fabric shop for a steal, so I think that final cost to me was around $15.00 including leather sewing needles. I would highly recommend sewing with a heavier duty thread to help make this nice and strong.
This project turned out so nice and stylish, I can't wait to go out shopping with it!
I have been loving the turban headband trend that's been happening the last few years and wanted to recreate in an easy to sew way.
I had a scrap piece of this gorgeous print left over from other projects that I thought would be absolutely perfect!
Even if you have had little to no experience with sewing, this project is something that can be made in about 15 minutes! Also makes a fabulous last minute gift idea :)
Happy Creating :)
