Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- July 7th

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Summer is now in full swing and it has me thinking about the beach, an incidentally, old beach movies. One of my all time favorite beach movie’s is Gidget with Sandra Dee. My mom rented the original of the Gidget movies for me when I was little, and that started my love affair with classic beach movies. So, I thought this week I’d curate a collection of vintage finds inspired by the original Gidget movie. Check em’ out:

Here’s a little clip from the original Gidget movie:

And here are my vintage finds inspired by the movie:

02 DSC 0109 DIY Easy Star Hair CombsHey everyone! Are you all getting ready for the Independence Day holiday tomorrow? One of my favorite memories of the fourth of July is from when we were living in Los Angeles. The apartment building we lived in let people up on the roof and we got to see a 360 degree view of every fireworks show the city was having. It was magical! I’m afraid nothing has ever been able to compare since. This year we are planning on shooting off some small fireworks at my mom’s house. I’m sure we will be grilling something yummy, and there will be lots of sparklers! Hannah and I love sparklers! Before the holiday commences, I thought I’d share this easy DIY for my Fabric Star Hair Combs that I will be wearing for the holiday. They are so easy and really fast to whip up!

Here’s What You Need:

*Fabric Scraps in Reds and Blues

*Marking Pen

*Scissors

*Basting Spray

*Sewing Machine and Thread

*Plastic Hair Combs or Hair Pins of your choice

*Fabri-Tac Glue

*Paper, pen and scissors

Instructions:

09 DSC 0028 DIY Easy Star Hair Combs

10 DSC 0099 DIY Easy Star Hair Combs

06 DSC 0100 DIY Easy Star Hair CombsThe first thing you need to do is cut out your stars. Draw a star onto a piece of paper and cut it out. Use it as a template. Double up your fabric scraps with wrong sides together. Trace your star onto the fabric with a marking pen and cut them out. You should have two stars for every comb or hair pin.Spray one of your stars with basting spray on it’s wrong side. Then smooth the star to it’s match with wrong sides together. Stitch around the edges of your stars and clip excess threads. Run a bead of glue onto the top of the hair comb. Press the comb onto the star shape back. Smooth and glue it down well. Set aside and let them dry.

You can really change the style up just by the fabrics you use. You can even make them in other shapes. You can choose to sew your shapes or you can just glue them together for an even easier diy. I’ll be back next week with a fun summer project! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend and a safe Independence Day!

Hi guys! It’s been a little crazy around here. I can’t believe it’s Christmas Eve already! I still have not even made a dent in my wrapping! Before the Christmas holiday I wanted to share one last Christmas-y thing, free printable tags! I have included printable sheets below for regular paper printable tags, and then ones for shrinky inkjet paper for an even more special tag.

Here is the printable for the paper tags:

You can write the name of the recipient and the gift giver on the back with a sharpie. I hope you all enjoy these printable tags! May they add a little extra cheer to your Christmas packages!

DIY Upcycled Vintage Tablecloth Drawstring Gift Bags

DSC 0083 3 409x600 DIY Upcycled Vintage Tablecloth Drawstring Gift Bags

DSC 0077 4 600x600 DIY Upcycled Vintage Tablecloth Drawstring Gift Bags

DSC 0072 4 599x600 DIY Upcycled Vintage Tablecloth Drawstring Gift Bags

 

Hi guys! A few months ago I came across some shabby Christmas tablecloths at a show and just had to have them! I thought it would be fun to incorporate them into my holiday crafting this year. I didn’t really get the chance to use them in my decor this year, so I thought I would use them in my wrapping. Drawstring bags are really easy to make and they make sweet little gift bags!

Here’s What You Need:

*Vintage Tablecloths

*Ribbon

*Safety Pin

*Scissors

*Ruler

*Sewing Machine and Coordinating Thread

Instructions:

Drawstring bags are really easy to make, and you can make them to your own dimensions easily. To make them like mine, you want your length to be longer than your width. My largest bag is 15×18″ and my smaller bag was 8×13″. Measure down three inches from the top on both sides and snip into the fabric by about 1/4″ where marked. Place your front and back pieces right sides together. Begin stitching at the first notch you make near the top. Stitch down the first side, across the bottom, and then back up the other side stopping at the other notch in the side using a half inch seam. Press open the seam allowance. Now you want to top stitch the seam allowance closed on each of the four sides. Fold the top of the front side of the bag and the back of the bag down by 1/4 inch, then fold the top down again so that the top is folded under to just above where the side seams start. Top stitch close tot he edge on the front and back sides forming the casings. Press your bag. Now fasten a safety pin to one end of your ribbon and feed it through the casings in the top of the bag. Pull the ribbon through and keep a long loop on the opposite side, so you have equal lengths of ribbon on each side. Cut the loop. To close the bag, scrunch the bag up and tie each side with the ribbon in a bow.

DSC 0085 3 567x600 DIY Upcycled Vintage Tablecloth Drawstring Gift Bags

 

I love these bags! They are so easy to whip up and the prints of vintage tablecloths are divine! You can easily make these to fit your own gifts. The greatest part is that the gift inside will come with it’s own bag to keep it safe when storing. I hope some of you all will give this one a try! It’s a lot of fun! I’ll be back in a little bit with some printable Christmas tags! Until then…

DIY Faux Bois Craft Paper Wrapping

DSC 0094 3 599x600 DIY Faux Bois Craft Paper Wrapping

 

Hi guys! I meant to share this with you all yesterday, but I was still testing things out. I love craft paper and use it every year in my holiday wrapping. I bought a huge roll a few years ago from a framing supply company, and have barely made a dent in the roll. I like using craft paper as my inexpensive base to be able to spend more on embellishments. This year I thought it may be fun to try and print a pattern on the craft paper. I am a big fan of faux bois, and have a wood grain rocker tool for painting. Originally I thought I may be able to use a stamp pad and saturate the rocker with it before dragging it across the paper, but alas, that was a fail. So, I ended up trying paint and glaze. Here’s the how-to:

What You Need:

*Craft Paper

*Gold Paint

*Martha Stewart Paint Glaze

*Wood Grain Rocker

*Paper Plate

*Large Brush

Instructions:

First, you need to mix your paint and glaze. Mix equal parts paint and glaze onto your paper plate. Next, mix the paint and glaze thoroughly. Lay out your paper in a long sheet on a protected hard flat surface. Paint the glaze onto your paper quickly. Hold down the top of the paper with one hand and hold the rocker in your other hand. Then, drag the rocker from the top to the bottom of the paper firmly, in long rocking motions. Then drag the rocker down the paper again right next to the first run. repeat and continue all the way across the paper to the end. Let the paper dry thoroughly before using it to wrap your gifts.

DSC 0088 3 600x600 DIY Faux Bois Craft Paper Wrapping

 

I think the wrapping turned out to be pretty cute! It is more subtle than I had originally wanted it to be, but I still like it. If you have a wood grain rocker, definitely give this one a try! Play around and have fun! Create your own custom gift wrap for your holiday gifts this year. You’ll have a blast!

Hi everyone! Welcome to day eleven of my 12 Days of Handmade Gifts! Today I am going to show you how to make a fun patched camera strap. I love vintage feed sack fabric and have dozens of little scraps. I had so much fun picking out my little scraps to embellish my strap with. This project is really fun to put together, and it is fast to whip up as well! Here’s the How-To:

Supplies:

*Vintage Feed Sack Scraps

*Rotary Cutter and Self Healing Mat

*2″ Webbing or an Old Belt

*Camera Strap Hardware Kit (Here)

*Leather Scraps

*Sewing Machine and Thread

*Leather Needle for your machine

Instructions:

IMG 4218 800x530 DIY Vintage Feed Sack Patched Camera Strap

Start off by gathering your scraps of fabric. You need to cut them into two inch squares with your rotary cutter. You will need about 15-18 of them depending on how long you want your strap. Once you have cut your squares, you are ready to patch them together. Take two squares and lay them face to face, then stitch up one side with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Take another square and lay it right sides together with the second square from the piece you just stitched. Repeat with your other squares, stitching the side to the previous square  until you have one long piece and all the pieces are stitched together in a line. Press open all the seams. Now, fold the edges under towards the backside of the fabric by a 1/4″ and press down. Next, cut your webbing or belt to be the same length of the patched strip of scraps. Lay the hemmed strip of scraps face up onto the webbing and pin down. Top stitch the fabric strip to the webbing, stitching about an eighth of an inch from the edge all the way around. Next, cut four leather scraps to be 2.5×3″. Cut a notch on each side of the bottom. Now, with wrong sides together, stitch down the side of the leather ends, rotate your needle and stitch down the next side. Cut two pieces of skinny webbing to be about 10-12 inches. Sandwich the end of the webbing into the bottom of the leather end, and stitch across the bottom, then stitch back up the other side. Repeat with the second leather end pieces. Now, insert the webbing into the top of the leather ends on each side, sandwiching the webbing in between the leather pieces. Stitch across the top. You can choose to keep your ends the size they are, or you can trim the sides down to the width of the webbing. Next, load your hardware onto each side of your webbing. Now you are ready to add it to your camera.

I love this strap! It’s so cute! This would be a fantastic gift for your photography enthusiast! It’s easy and inexpensive to make too. I think I may have to make another one for my camera so I can enjoy one too! I love how easy it is to customize this strap too, just by the colors and fabrics you choose. You guys should definitely give this one a try for an easy to please holiday gift or yourself. I’ll be back tomorrow with my last diy gift project. Until then…
