pretty things


Today I made this velvet turban, I found a DIY on THIS beautiful blog.
Unfortunately, I'm not feeling very photogenic at all. I'm not even in the mood for pictures, I think perhaps that made me look weirder. lol..My eyes look dead this evening :p
But hey! The turban turned out great, and I seriously love my rabbit earrings my mom got me for christmas!!

I guess I was feeling crafty today, so I worked on my blanket while listening to music...




It is now 1ft wide, and 4 feet long, I started it a week ago today. I'm getting excited as it keeps growing, I'm going to do other pieces like this, in squares and more rectangles, then stitch them all together into a full size blanket, can't wait!

Well, I best be off here, I'm hungry, and I have to fold a serious load of laundry.
Happy Monday everyone! <3

    1. I'm beginning to wonder if I could make a turban from a vintage scarf... I've seen some silky ones that would look really good as a turban...
      It kind of looks like a style for short hair, but I saw on the tutorial that it looked pretty good with long hair too.
