Five Things I’m Loving This Friday ~ Rainbows

It’s been a bit of a sad week around here, with the loss of an old school friend and the terrible news of riots all around the country. I decided we could all do with some colour in our lives.

I just loved this little dress as soon as I saw it. It’s made from old t-shirts in all the colours of the rainbow and wouldn’t it just brighten any day?

Paper beads are always fun to make and I like the glittery effect on these.

An assortment of colourful fabric scraps are all you need to make this appliqued rainbow t-shirt.

This colourful garland has been made by stitching together punched shapes.

The last one isn’t something to make, but it’s pretty cool all the same. A flip book that creates a rainbow in your hand.

Couldn’t we all do with one of those sometimes.
