I am so excited that Diana at The Girl Creative is guest blogging over here and I’m over at her place today!
I first discovered The Girl Creative when I was trying to learn how to improve and update my blog. See those menu buttons up there… it was her amazing tutorials that helped me make those.
She’s also the fab host of Just Something I Whipped Up Monday. This is a fun party to show off all those items your created during the week.
So without further ado…
Hello Domestically Speaking readers! It’s Diana from The Girl Creative and I’m super excited to be swapping blogs with Maryann today. She has sooooome talent huh??? I was hooked on her blog from the moment I saw her Pottery Barn inspired wardrobe. I mean, is there anything she can’t do?? She has taken over my blog for the day so I hope you’ll stop by and show her some support. It’s always nice to see some familiar faces. 🙂 I have an easy peasey tutorial to share with you but first let me get all the boring details of my life over with! I am a Christian by faith and a happily married 35 year old-ish mom to 2 of the funniest little girls ever, Emilee and Grace. We have an insane dog named Buster who just adds to the chaos that is our life. I love to have fun and make people laugh and have been known to run around like a lunatic with my kids just for the heck of it. I’ve been blogging for a few years but The Girl Creative is my most recent adventure. Every Monday I host a linky party called Just Something I Whipped Up where my readers show off their most recent creations. Occasionally I post digital scrapbook freebies as well as blogging secrets and tips. I also offer a la carte blog design services for really, really reasonable prices. Most of the time, though, you can find projects that I’ve worked on that turned out decent enough to share. lol
Now that all that boring stuff is out of the way, I wanted to share a tutorial with you. I had this scarf kicking around my house that has kind of gotten all pilly and fuzzy and has taken a back seat to a few newer scarves. I also have this draft problem at my front and back doors that have been sporting very stylish and decorative
pathetic and tacky rolled up towels. Suddenly I had a thought that would take care of both problems. So today I’m going to teach you how to make a draft guard out of an old scarf.
Next I folded it long ways and pinned the long side and one short side. I sewed it along the pinned edges leaving the unpinned side unsewed for stuffing purposes. You don’t need to turn it inside out because the edges of the scarf are already finished and won’t fray. I then stuffed my scarf with batting that I had in my stash and sewed the last open end closed. And here’s the finished project. **Depending on how long your scarf is and how wide your doors are, you may be able to get 2 draft guards out of one scarf. I didn’t measure and one of mine fits the back door perfectly but is a bit small for the front door.
Thank you so much, Maryann, for swapping blogs with me today. I had a lot of fun meeting your readers and sharing a project with them. 🙂
