I think most of us spend lots more time creating for our kids or others, than we do for ourselves. Here are two simple projects, perfect for treating yourself. Crafty moms deserve a little handmade love, too!
I found the tutorial by Rae for this Spring Ruffle Top on Lil Blue Boo. I went with the gathered front- rather than pleated- included the pockets option, and added rick rack trim. I love it and couldn't wait to wear it here! (Too bad my sweater covered it up most of the time!)
I made this fabric necklace about 5 minutes after reading this Joy's Hope post, using scraps from my quilt. The pattern is a little confusing (and I'm not alone), so I just made it work for me. Mine came out shorter, I found wood beads were better than styrofoam, and I thought a ribbon closure was the way to go.
Creativity is all about taking inspiration and adapting methods to best suit you!
Now go make something for yourself!
