Scrappy Belts...

So here they are...Scrappy Belts!! The best part is that no two belts will ever be the same and with a variety of fabrics and colors in each one, you're sure to be able to wear these belts with many different outfits AND they are reversible so you're getting two looks in one belt! The price for these belts will be $15. (The buckles turned out to be more expensive than I originally thought since I order them online I have to pay shipping.) I've worn mine (the very first one I made) a couple times and have gotten great compliments!

These are size Medium (approx 42"-43")

These are a size Large (Approx 45-46")

Have tons of scraps just ready to be made into belts. So let me know if you want a custom belt...

New style and belts

So I decided to try a new style of headband and think that I like it better than the first. It adds a couple steps to the process but still isn't too time consuming.

Then at our Fit Club on Wednesday, my friend had on a cute belt that she got a boutique downtown and paid like $20 for. After looking at it I thought it was something I could do. So decided I would try to create one. I've made 2 so far but haven't finished them yet. Yesterday I went to find some belt buckle sliders and after 3 different stores I gave up...after doing some research online, I ended up ordering about 10 last night. Hopefully they will work and I can keep making my scrap fabric belts! (I'll post my finished product once I get it completed!) These take a bit longer to make so I'm trying to figure out a good price...J thinks $15 - but we'll see how the buckles turn out. In the photo, mine are the ones on the outer edges...the one from the boutique is in the middle.

Today I made a few headbands for my girls...very simple concept. Fabric pieces are stitched together and the bottom of the headband is held together with a simple ponytail holder. Think I"ll be using up some of my scrap fabric for these!

Crayon Keepers

So here is my first "creation" for Its a TEN Specialty Creations...oh and in case you didn't know, TEN are my initials (Tami E Nicholson) so everything on this site will be things that I have made myself...but not necessarily thought of. There are soooo many websites out there that offer step by step tutorials on how to make things. Those are quite helpful in getting ideas...then I usually make slight variations.
Crayon Keepers
These handy little holders will hold 16 regular size crayons and roll up nicely to fit in a diaper bag or purse. They measure approximately 16"x 5" unrolled with either a ribbon tie or elastic closure. No more loose crayons marking up the inside of your your child will love being able to pull each crayon out of their pocket, color and then put them back in their spot. Great for restaurants, airports or anywhere your child needs to be entertained!
Cost $5, plus shipping (without crayons) - if you'd like crayons the cost is $6 plus extra shipping charges. Below is a small sampling of the current fabrics I have. Check back for more...

Blogging my creations...

So I wanted a place where I could post the different things that I make without having to purchase a website so I thought a blog would be the perfect answer. I will do my best to keep it updated. Please feel free to ask whatever questions you might have!
