DIY peanut eye mask

I couldn't have chosen a better post to write about while still laying in bed. These rainy gloomy days make me the laziest ever, and I'm completely fine with that. I can't stop thinking about summer, not because the days will long and everybody goes outside to play. But really just because summer means I don't have school & I can be lazy to my fullest potential. So that's the story behind my lazy mask, why its a peanut? Well don't face masks look like peanuts already? Let them just be!

#1. Beige felt
#2. Black thread
#3. Mustard thread 
#4. Scissors
#5. Elastic
#6. Needle (Not shown)
#7. 30 minutes of your time

Step one: Cut the felt into a peanut shaped eye mask. Very similar to DSMeeBee's bridal eye mask template!

Step two: With a fabric marker or pencil, draw the lines going horizontally and vertically. This will make the sewing so much more do-able which by the way will be done in the orange thread.

Step three: Add some sleeping eyes to your nut! Then cut off all those loose dangly ends.

Step four: Place the elastic around your head to measure the right size. Then cut an Inch or so smaller so that it'll fit you nice and snug. Sew the ends to your nutty mask & done! 

Forever Lazy!

D.i.y Friendship pencils

Friends rule & so do threaded bracelets. I use to rock em all the time, but they were so restricting. If I had to dress up I'd have to take them with me. So I figured adding some colorful embroidery thread would give me that summery feel with out that bracelet tan. Not only that but how sweet would these be to gift? An alternative to giving out those time consuming bracelets. 


#1. Set of pencils
#2. Craft thread / embroidery
#3. Scissors 
#4. 10 minutes of your time

Step one: Choose 3 or four colors

Step two: Create a loop and slide onto the pencil. Next with the thread attached to the rest of the bunch, create the same loop and pull up to tighten (loop it under and back through the opening). Repeat until desired length.

Step three: Grab your next color of choice and begin of with the same starter knot. Then follow step twos loop sequence creating 5 knots.

Step four: Cut off the string from your first thread, and second (orange and magenta). Continue loop knotting with your second thread (magenta) until both cut strings are covered. Do steps 3-4 for each color of thread you add.

Step five: When ending your friendship pencil make a tight knot as close to the pencil as possible. Then create another one to secure it. Cut the thread & done!

Mix up your colors the more the better! Now you can have summer camp in your hands!
Also you could slide your design down and use it a finger grip! However I like it better as a topper.
