Fun stuff for teenage girls to make........

Found these fun and relatively simple ideas for you and your teen to make, courtesy of Country Living!! My daughter loves to do crafts with me and I think these will be on the list for sure!!!!!






Bandana Table Runner
( This would be so cute for a teenager birthday party, don't you think?)

Add a cheerful touch to the summer table with this patchwork-style runner. Line up enough bandannas to fit the length of a table, leaving some overhang, and stitch together. To back the runner, cut an old cotton tablecloth (any light-colored one will do) to match its width and length. Sew together along the edges or attach with iron-on bonding.

Hello. I stumbled across your site and just wanted to say I really liked it. Great crafts ideas! My favorite was the magnetic message board. I'm not very good with arts and crafts but really enjoy looking at things people can make. Keep up the great blog! Just passing through ...

Hi! Thanks for commenting on my blog! Yes, it has been hard to have my hubby gone but I am so excited to take the kids to see him this weekend! Can't Wait!!!

Your blog is so cute! Love this bandana table runner. Have you seen the cute bandana pants Martha Stewart did years ago? They are so easy to make and perfectly cool for the summer! My girls look so cute in them. I found lime green bandanas at Walmart for .97 cents! Can't beat that!

Have a great day! Good luck in planning your mom's 70th! And keep in mind, toppings go a LONG way. I had way too many left over to tempt me! ;)

I just LOVE that magnetic memo board - so cute!! And I think I may have to try a fabric covered journal since I love fabric oh-so-much!

I hope you're doing well, friend!
