It may seem a little foolish, but I've been known to engineer my own patterns from time to time (just ask my mom about the Christmas tree skirt I made this year... on second thought, maybe not).
In other news, I finally made one of those braided t-shirt headbands that have been all over Pinterest. (Mom, you would be proud to know that I read the directions before I started the project.)
I think it turned out pretty well (plus, it's comfy!).
