The Scribble Challenge

I was given the following items as part of the "Scribble Challenge."  The Scribble Shop is an online store full of crafty goodness.  This is what I received in the box.  There was also a blue pack of felt (just like the brown) and 16 of the fabric squares.  (I got a little excited and started working before I took the picture.)

And here are two things I made from the package.

This little outfit and headband....

....and this glittered quote.

Here's a closer look at the little quote....

...and the headband.

Since there are a lot of how-tos, I am going to give you a condensed version of the tutorials.

The quote was easy.  I typed out a quote I liked and printed it off.  I used the glue within the glitter package to outline a couple of the words and then sprinkled on the glitter.  I added the glitter brads to the frame by bending in the metal backs inward and applying them to the frame with a large glue dot.

I was really surprised that I could outline such tiny letters clearly with the glue.  The glue has a nice, small  opening that can give you a very thin line.  I liked that.

The outfit would require a big tutorial, which I won't be posting right now.  The skirt is pretty simple.  Sew the squares together like a quilt and it's a simple elastic casing at the top.  The ric rac trim was an extra from my stache, but can also be found in the Scribble shop HERE.

The headband took me back to the days when my sister and I made hundreds of them to sell.  Here are my tips for the headband.

I used 2 of the fabric squares to make the flower.  I cut the squares into four small squares.  Then I folded them into quarters and rounded the edges as shown.  I did the same with the next color, but I cut the rounded corner even smaller.

I threw the pieces in the washer and dryer (inside a dryer bag so I didn't loose them) because I like a frayed edge.  Then I ironed them flat again.  I folded them into quarters again and glued them to a round piece of felt.  I glued the next layer and then added a felted ball I made from the roving.  (I used Ashley's tutorial for that found HERE.)

I glued my flower to a clip so it can be used on the headband or separately.

I didn't use the chalk paint because I didn't have a way to make it fit into those other projects, but I still have plans for it.  Oh yes.  

You can also find the Scribble Shop on Facebook, twitter, and google +.  Get 15% off your entire order until April 30th by using the code "MOMAROAR."

So, what would you have made with the package?  Thanks for reading.
