(All images by RubyEllen of cakies, and pulled from her headband tutorial post here.)
To return to where we began, however, I'd like to hear about some of the ridiculous and funny things you've kept for years as remembrances. Go on! The very craziest!
Yep, you guessed right. In May. We haven't taken a substantial vacation since our honeymoon. (Crossing my fingers that I won't get sick this time.) Anyway, so I'm working on making some of our arrangements, and I may be a little absent here for a few days. Be back soon!
Anyway, this charming DIY canvas doily bag tutorial was created by Ashley of Ashley Ann Photography. See her original post and full instructions here.
Ashley instructs us to spray the doily with adhesive spray first, then stick it to the bag in your desired place. Then paint over the holes, and peel the doily off before the paint dries.
Either freehand or trace your monogram or other design in the center. Ashley used her iron "to heat set it a bit." And voila, done!
I love this idea, and although mine would look slightly different -- probably pink or aqua paint instead of black, and my "S" might be script or something different entirely, I think this bag is perfect for a carry-all, reuseable grocery bag, craft supplies bag, or personalized gift for bridesmaids or hostesses. How would you customize yours?
These fun messenger bags are made in several different patterns, shapes, and sizes by Etsy shop Stash. (Obviously the pink one is my favorite.) I found them via this post on Creature Comforts. Hope your Wednesday is lovely, wherever you happen to be.
Any of these would be right at home in my closet, I'm sure.
