DIY Tassel and Pom Pom Scarf

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great holiday season. If you live on the east coast, you know how absolutely freezing it has been here. BItter cold. It was -17 with the wind chill today. I've grown up here in good ol' Cle so I am used to the cold, but man this is too much even for us natives. It makes you think even more about the homeless people and animals out there. With that said, I am volunteering at a homeless shelter with a group next week. We are making a meal and serving it to around 100 people. If you have never done it before, you should. It is nothing like you would expect. It really makes you appreciate how blessed we all are. Even as I sit here on my couch with a roof over my head, and my nice warm fuzzy socks, I take things for granted everyday. By the way, socks are actually one of the most requested items that a homeless individual is in need of. Food for thought.

So I went and found some yarn that matched, and got to it!

So I sought out a basket bag on Etsy that fit the shape I was looking for, got some string and created this little designer dupe [...]

D.I.Y Pom Pom Trim Pillow Case

D.I.Y Pom Pom Trim Pillow Case

Awhile back I was apart of a workshop where we tried our hands at hand dyeing shibori fabric. My 6th grade camp self was extremely excited to find a reason to tie dye something as an adult! I dyed these cotton tea towels that came out absolutely beautiful and I wanted to turn them into something. I needed new pillows desperately and i couldn't seem to find any that I liked. So of course, time to make something. I am totally on the pom pom train with everyone else so I thought combining my shibori fabric and a pom pom trim would make an (inexpensive!) pillowcase I would be happy to lay my head on [...]
