I came up with this idea for a headband holder when I saw how many headbands my daughter had and how they were spread on the floor of her bedroom getting broken.
I started out with a a pvc pipe purchased at Home Depot for aprox. $6 and I had left over fabric from another project for my daughter's room. I purchased a small block of white wood for aprox. $3 and bolts and screws. My husband then drilled two holes in the pvc pipe and the block of wood. I just made a slip cover for the pvc and slipped it over, I then screwed the block of wood into the pipe to use as a stand. I then trimmed the the ends of the fabric with pinking shears to stop it from fraying. I then just tied the ends off with very small clear plastic elastics.
This is the final project, My daughter loves it and so does her friends.
This is what is looks like everyday. LOL I told you she had a lot of headbands.

My son had to have a Green Lantern outfit ASAP, we saw the movie for Father's Day...his auntie sent him the mask, ring and cuff. I quickly went to Hobby Lobby and purchased a greent-shirt for $1.50 (was on sale yeah me!) I went into my daughters dress up bin and found green and black pants and I got to work. My son loves the outfit.
I found this great and simple Superhero Cape Tutorial at Georgia Leigh Blog. I again went to work so my son could have a Batman and Superman reversible cape. The directions were very easy to understand. The pattern is free on her site but if you would like to purchase the pattern in pdf form you can visit her Etsy Shop. Just click on the link...Etsy Shop
My son loves it, he is more partial to the Bateman side than the Superman side. I guess we need to watch Superman movies for him to appreciate that super hero. :)

I came across this great idea for Freezer Pop Holders at a great BLOG http://www.bystephanielynn.com/ My son is going for surgery very soon to have his tonsils and adenoids taken out. Which means a lot of ice pops and very cold hands. I saw this project and went right to my fabric stash and whipped these Freezer Pop Holders in no time. My son and daughter couldn't wait to try them out for breakfast. :) Thank you Stephanie for the great idea.

I made this simple frame for my daughter's teacher and attached at gift card to a restaurant. I took a plain wooden frame from Wally World for $0.97 and spray painted it white. Then I hot glued crayons left over from the beginning of the school year at $0.25 a box. I used three boxes because I wanted to do the colors of the rainbow. But you can do any pattern or just random crayons. I think it came out good. Her teacher loved it.
