DIY Project Parade

Happy 4th of July!!!  I hope you had a wonderful long holiday weekend!
I LOVE fireworks!

I managed to DIY a little this week!  My daughter decided the night before she left for Germany that a passport/carrier would be handy since she was to keep it on her person all of the time.  I kept fearing that she’d lose her purse (she did lose her cell phone but luckily, found it) or that it’d be stolen.  So, we came up with…a place to carry her passport/money under her clothing.  I had everything I needed at home!  I love when that happens!  
  • Scrap fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Iron-on velcro

Here is my tutorial in pictures.  I‘ll come back and edit/add the instructions since I’m short on time right now. 

Very handy!  She wears it under her shirt but for picture purposes…well, you know.  Now, passport and money are safe.  🙂  The ribbon has a velcro closure so it’s adjustable.  Not bad for free and about an hour of work before she left the next day. 

*For those of you asking…here’s Niski, making the best of bed rest.  🙂  Thanks for your prayers!  Still being optimistic!

So...that’s what I’ve been up to.  What about you?  Feel free to link up!
