National Craft Month...at Kirstikoo!

I'm clearly not quite back to completely normal-or at least as close as I get.
 I mentioned the Simply Create contest going on over at Kirstikoo Thursday and forgot to share the link.
And well, it's probably a good thing cause I was wrong about the entry deadline.
Yeah for more time....
I'm also feeding a few selfish needs to post my entry...I want to play, there and here:

I happily introduce you to what used to be my curtains...

So this was my first time ever attempting pleats, I'm pretty sure it will also be my last!
Those buggers are NOT easy.
Funny thing though, after I got it all done and gave a pleased sigh of relief I pulled out the pleats and liked it even more. (Of course it would go that way!)

But no matter, I got it done and I like it.
And I gave the flower technique shared by Baby Bizzles on Tuesday a try-super easy, love how they came out.

And even better, I got an accidental bonus project out of my pleated efforts...
I measured my pillow wrong and ended up with my pleated (sewn!) fabric being to large.
I cut down to the correct size and ended up with a 3 inch strip of sewn pleats.
No way I was wasting all that effort!

 Now I have a super sassy pillow AND a flirty little headband...sometimes it pays to screw up!
Have a great weekend, I'm off to my first Texas Rodeo...Giddy Up Y'all!
Happy Crafting...
