You still have time to get all of the challenges done!

I wont be announcing the winners until later this month, So you still have time to finish all of the challenges and upload them into the flickr group!

 If you've only done 1 or 2, May I suggest having a real Craft Marathon and doing a whole bunch of projects at once? If you don't have time to finish them all, Don't worry! Even if you've only done 1 of the challenges, you will still be entered to win a prize!

I'm loving all of the lovely projects that you guys have entered. So inspiring! :)

This weeks color is: Royal Blue!
To sew a simple felt pouch, Just cut a long rectangle out of felt, fold one side of it up and stitch together, leaving a few inches of felt to fold over as a flap. We also cut a scallop out of a darker blue and attached it to the flap.
What are you going to make this week? Post pictures in the flickr group!

This weeks challenge just happens to be my favorite color! *PINK*
For this week we made some super simple party decorations. For the banner, Just cut pretty pieces of scrapbook paper into triangles, and then sew a piece of ric rac or ribbon onto them.
For the party hat, Just roll a piece of pink paper into a cone and embellish! Easy-Peasy-Lemon-Squeezy!
What is your favorite color? Is it pink?
