I made myself one yesterday that I totally love but the great news for you is that I was shown (by my super genius husband who downloads how to do stuff like Neo in the Matrix I swear) how to cut all the triangles at once!

Festive Bandana Picnic Table Cloth

I love my new picnic table cloth!! Isn't it cute? All I did was sew 16 bandannas together like my mama did a few years ago.  It will be so fun to have for the 4th!!

Craft Cubby!

So first let's have a confessional.  My crafts have taken over my living room and my family room.  My name is Emily and I have a craft problem.  LOL!! Then Hark!?  What's that I hear?
